Boy, what a fantastic romp this was! I read it in four parts, from different 1931 issues of Astounding Stories I found on Project Gutenberg. Ray Cummings put a little bit of everything into this tale: time travel, romance, an evil genius, nifty gadgets (I would like to have at least one peek through a Time-telespectroscope!), a completely horrifying scene of chaos in New York City, one chapter explaining the concept of time travel (the narrator invites you to skip this if you wish, but don't: it ...more

Começou promissor mas não demorou a deixar muito a desejar. A trama é muito simples e mesmo assim há muito que não se percebe por não fazer sentido ou por falta de ligação com os acontecimentos.

Tendo em atenção que o livro é de 1930, já esperava que fosse simples mas há inconsistências e faltas de explicação que quase me fizeram descer para 2*.

One of my favorite reads as a teen. It had such an impact on me as to cause me to seek out a copy years later for a re-read. The story line would make for an excellent adaptation to the screen, either large or small, especially given the recent fascination with artificial life-forms exemplified on Star Trek, TNG and Battlestar Galactica. I read it twice in the 70's and will read it again soon.

Very dated. Amusing, in a backwards kind of way.
