it was ok

This is an odd one. I want to like it more than I did, but I think it needs to be longer. About 20 pages from the end, I wished the focus had been on only one aspect of the book, either the immortality of the world's population after the majority of it had been wiped out or the time machine that was really a virtual simulation of the past rather than an actual traveling device. By the end I just wanted another 100 pages to figure things out. I'd say that this "borrows heavily" from The Matrix rather than call it a rip-off because I really like Joe Haldeman.
