I was in Atlanta for a convention this weekend, and on the way down I finished The Quantum Thief
, and started Time Travellers Never Die
, by Jack McDevitt. I nearly finished it on the way home because the planes on both legs of my return trip took a good 45 minutes to take off after leaving the gate.
It's better than some other time travel novels I've read over the past couple of years (Joe Haldeman's The Accidental Time Traveller
was a big disappointment to me), but it's mostly been a series of vignettes as the time travellers go from time period to time period. There's a plot, but it's been far in the background for most of the book. I'm hoping that something big happens in the last 50 pages to make it worthwhile.
