"The Anubis Gates" is a terrific time travel fantasy. I never quite knew where the story was going or what was going to happen next. Tim Powers is one of those writers who packs meaning and significance into every scene. I found myself having to backtrack several times to see if I had missed something. In the last third of the book, there's so much body switching and name changing that I had trouble telling who was who. I really liked the challenge though, it kept me on my toes and it was unlike anything else I've ever read.

Lisa Vegan Sandi, I just added this book to my to-read list because I saw it with comments on Otis's currently reading, but your review really has me excited about this book. I'm very intrigued and I think I'd really enjoy it. I'll have to try to get to it.

Jo I could never get into this book, but reading your review is making me think about giving it another try.

Powers is really tough to read. You have to to have time to be able to really focus on his work.
