I haven't read a lot of Simak, but what I have read has been has been consistently thoughtful and humanistic and at times perhaps even poetic. This one offers an interesting premise, but unfortunately Simak doesn't particularly do anything with that premise.

This felt like a book where the author invested a lot of energy building a tense scenario and then suddenly decided that he was bored and wanted to wrap it up (and get a paycheck) as quickly as possible. Several aspects of the sudden ending are not even remotely convincing. The characters were barely sketched and the odd little relationship between Steve Wilson and Judy Gray was far from satisfying.

This was a good science fiction book with lots of untapped potential. I liked the interactions between the people from the future and the ones in the present. At the end, however, I found myself wondering what happens next and being a little disappointed that there were so many unanswered questions. ( )
