really liked it

I had expected there to be a longer account of Jesus Christ in a more intimate context. Everything about the book was very brief; the encounters with people, the history of the time, the history of Karl Glogauer (main character), the time machine and attempt through time. If I had to compare another book's experience, I'd say it was a lot like reading the stranger by Albert Camus in terms of pacing and insight, just not in stream of consciousness.

I also read it in two hours, tops. I wanted more from it, but it was engaging and what I would call a good read. Borrow it rather than buy though.
