This was my book club pick this month. (Yeah, I know, a non-Reader's Choice, what was I thinking? Oh well.)
Reminiscent of Connie Willis' books, I found this to be a bizarre and amusing book, half sci-fi, half philosophical treatise.
(I haven't read anything by Douglas Adams, but I imagine there are similarities there, too.)
The first half is funnier, while the second have does have a tendency to wax confusingly philosophical. I still enjoyed that though.
My favorite parts-- the Microsoft references. Without a doubt. Hilarious.
And while this is a total geek/engineer book, it's also totally a book for grammar nerds. Because really, time travel is all about tense: present, past, future.
So really, I recommend it to any engineering major, humanities or English major, computer science major, etc. :)
I really think I need to own this one. :D
Counts for my book club (obviously) and the Support Your Local Library Challenge.
