Oct 02, 08

Recommended for: people who liked The Time Traveler's Wife
Read in September, 2008

First of all, BEWARE of reviews that give away too much of this plot (that's you, amazon!) because it will ruin your reading to know too many of the intricate details of this novel. I'm intentionally vague below because key plot elements were given away in some reviews I read.

The time-travel aspect makes you think it's sci-fi, but it's really more of historical fiction in the exhaustive detailing of 1867 Vienna. It also touches on psychology, romance, and philosophy (those who love the time-travel paradox will have a field day with this novel).

While some of the characterizations (of both people and Vienna) lean towards excess, the story was entertaining and definitely kept me riveted.

Allison Thanks for the warning. I just bought this book tonight and now I'm going to avoid any further reviews until I've read it. Reviewers who give away plot points are buttheads.
