I wanted to like this but couldn't. The concept is intriguing and kept me reading until the end but I just couldn't buy the ending. The conceit of the book is that a man builds a push button time machine that launches him one way into the future at increasing increments. The cultures he lands in are interesting and are what kept me turning the pages but the plot goes nowhere. It reminded me of books by [author: Jonathan Carroll] or even the science fiction book [book: Highway of Eternity]. The problem with the ending to all of those, as well as this story, is that it concludes with a very unfulfilling Deus Ex Machina. The ride to the end is fun but it left me wanting more.
