Does time move like a river, or is it more like an elevator? Is time the antithesis of eternity? Narrator Rob Shapiro provides an excellent reading with a blend of authority and wonder as author James Gleick attempts to answer these questions and more in his creative and entertaining survey of time-travel fiction and science. In particular, he compares the physics theories of Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman to the literature of David Foster Wallace, Robert Heinlein, and James Joyce. The audiobook also serves as a history of the science fiction genre (originally called "scientifiction") and explains how the genre owes a debt to the innovative approach to time travel proposed in H.G. Wells's TIME MACHINE. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
