I picked this up after reading [b:Anno Dracula|33535|Anno Dracula (Anno Draculae #1)|Kim Newman|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1221011425s/33535.jpg|1731834] because I wanted something solidly futuristic. As it turns out, however, this is a sequel to H.G. Wells's [b:The Time Machine|2493|The Time Machine|H.G. Wells|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41PRHZqppUL._SL75_.jpg|3234863]. So that may have something to do with my reaction, but I don't really think so. In this book, the narrator is the Time Traveler himself. And although the story is engaging, and the physics is plausible enough to keep you going, the Traveler is not a great protagonist; he is prone to fits of temper, not very charming, frequently boorish, highly impulsive, and - despite being a crack scientist and tinkerer - just not very smart. That is to say, he doesn't learn from his experiences; he makes the same mistakes over and over again. And while much of characterization is consistent with what I remember from Wells, when the story is an incredible, epic journey, like this one is, one has an expectation that the main character will grow over the course of the journey, to be ready for what's to come at the end of it. But this character never does, until the very end, and even there only slightly.

Now on the positive side, the science really is quite fun. Baxter re-imagines how a time machine must work based on contemporary quantum theory, in particular the many-worlds interpretation. Having returned (in Wells's book) from the future back to 1891 and told his tale to the Writer and his other friends, the Traveler heads forward again into a very different future. And then back to the past, and to a different again future, and so on through multiple timelines. And what timelines! There are lots of interesting technological twists and turns, and interesting and surprising alternate histories. Best of all, Baxter offers some delightful spins on what evolution is capable of over truly significant time scales, blowing Asimov out of the water.

To sum it up, I found a lot to enjoy in this novel, but the lack of character development left me more than a little disappointed. I'm almost certain to read another or two of Baxter's books, but I have to remember to slot him to that subgroup of SF authors for whom the characters don't matter much. ( )

An authorized sequel to The Time Machine, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It picks up where H.G. Wells' story left off, as the time traveler hurtles to the future to rescue Weena.

Mr. Baxter manages to retain the style of the original without turning it into a slavish copy. The simplistic, linear view of time in the original book is expanded to include current physics, keeping the book recognizably a Stephen Baxter tale as well as a pastiche of H.G. Wells.

I enjoyed the book thoroughly, and I was sorry to get to the last page. More 19th century time travel books, please! ( )

Time travel has always been my favorite genre of science fiction, yet it is probably one of the hardest to get right. Aside from the science of time travel, there's the eternal paradoxes that time travel poses - such as how one can travel to the past, effect change (after all, where's the fun in traveling through time if you can't muck about with it?), and not create an impossible conundrum in the process. Wells's classic The Time Machine neatly stepped around the whole problem by having his unnamed Traveler voyage into the future rather than the past. By contrast, Stephen Baxter tackles these issues head-on in this follow-up to Wells's story, a worthy sequel to a landmark work of science fiction.

Picking up neatly where Wells left off, Baxter's tale ranges far into the future and back to the beginning of Time itself, encountering realities profoundly affected by the invention of time travel. Accompanying the Traveler is Nebogipfel, a Morlock unlike any invented by Wells. Nebogipfel is a sensitive character who supplies the modern scientific explanations to what the 19th century narrator encounters, and the friendship that emerges between the two of them is one of the highlights of this book,

Nebogipfel also serves to answer many of the traditional paradoxes of time travel that appear in the course of their travels in time. Though many will find the explanations unsatisfactory, Baxter should be commended for confronting them head-on and creating a much richer novel in the process. Fans of the original novel will also respect his homage to Wells and the respect that Baxter pays to many of the Wells's ideas, though in the end this is a must-read for any fan of brilliantly imagined, well-written science fiction.

There's so much and so little here. Regarding the latter, what happens is comparatively easy to describe: Wells' traveler returns to Morlock future, find it's changed, meets advanced Morlocks on their sun-spanning Sphere, returns to 1870s with Nebogipfel, takes younger version of self to C20, finds nonstop war with Germans in domed London, retreats to Paleocene, advances to White Earth, goes back to beginning of time and space with advanced constructor robots, returns to original timeline to 'finish' off Wells' original narrative. Within that, though, is pretty much every single expectation and hope and inevitability any time-travel narrative fan could think of: paradox, multiple histories, the extended descriptions of watching big time advance quickly, meeting different versions of self, the rise and fall of civilizations, far future, far past, causal loops/paradoxes. And, the thing is, all of that is great fun. What's there to say after though? What's a bit more interesting (and mostly by being a little less interesting) are the (largely nonexistent) ways in which Baxter deals with character. It probably helps that the Time Traveler is meant to be an anonymous cipher, mainly an id for action and mouthpiece for wonderment, because that's what he is. The ideology of the book is interesting, as well, as it, in many ways, fully comprehends Wells' humanitarian and socialist impulses and works them into the narrative -- although largely denuded of practical implications, except for, perhaps, the bit about the New Humans destruction of their natural world -- at the same time as it advances a libertarian, proto-Silicon-Valley ethos of post-humanism and Information Acquisition as the ne plus ultra of human evolution and existence.

This is a sequel to The Time Machine, authorised as such by the H.G. Wells estate. (I've had more dealings with the estates of deceased writers in the last week than I can remember from my whole life before the Worldcon.) I have previously mentioned that I always appreciate the breadth and scope of Baxter's vision - the commitment to sensawunda if you like - but that he doesn't always succeed in communicating it in a human way to me. I thought this book ticked the right boxes. The Time Traveller of Wells' novel tries to return to the year 802,701 and save Weena, but gets caught up in the parallel universes of the Many Worlds theory, and visits a number of very well depicted possible futures and pasts along with a friendly Morlock called Nebogipfel. Particularly vivid passages are set in a war-torn London of 1938, where the exiled Kurt Gödel is helping the British government, and a Paleocene setting where they become involved in setting up a wildly premature human colony in the past. Other bits are a little duller, but the overall plot of time paradoxes, which seems in danger of veering out of control at one point, is wrapped up very satisfactorily. Apparently there are lots of references to other H.G. Wells stories as well, which I missed due to not being in that fandom. Overall I enjoyed it. ( )
