This volume gets out of the mental-illness and religion sideplots and gets into the question of what the world should be. Obvioulsy, not everyone's answer is the same, but there's value in just asking the question.

I'm pretty much begging Natasha daily to read this series.

SPOILER: DO NOT READ IF YOU PLAN TO READ BEYOND BOOK 1

I skipped book 2 because I got mid-way through the second book and realized that we were going to circle the same events over and over again. It was like he kept stirring the caldron and dumping in character after character. And known characters kept picking up new names and new identities and in the end - it was all one great big mess any way because there were clones and klaatu and former time stub folks that were trapped in the wrong time stream....

Interesting story, but it went on too long and I just frankly didn't like the ending. It's as if he was as tired as everyone else and said - geeze. Time to stop. The characters were so tired of spinning through time that they were just relieved to be in place and not having to fight. But their lives were harder. ( )

National Book Award winner Pete Hautman weaves several diverging time streams into one satisfying masterwork in this stunning and revelatory series finale.

In a far distant future, Tucker Feye and the inscrutable Lia find themselves atop a crumbling pyramid in an abandoned city. In present-day Hopewell, Tucker’s uncle Kosh faces armed resistance and painful memories as he attempts to help a terrorized woman named Emma, who is being held captive by a violent man. And on a train platform in 1997, a seventeen-year-old Kosh is given an instruction that will change his life, and the lives of others, forever. Tucker, Lia, and Kosh must evade the pursuit of maggot-like Timesweeps, battle Master Gheen’s cult of Lambs, all while they puzzle out the enigmatic Boggsians as they search for one another and the secrets of the diskos. Who built them? Who is destroying them? Where — and when — will it all end?
