Fascinating book, with a thought provoking premise.
Not your ordinary time travel reading material, I recommend this to everyone.

I was expecting great things from this book, as time travel is my favourite of all sci-fi topics, and I wasn't exactly disappointed but I guess I was looking for more action. It is "realistic" (if you can say that about a time travel book) in the sense that if a regular person had the ability to time travel this is probably what they'd do. The foreshadowing in the prologue made me think that a lot more would be taking place in the future, while most of it is visiting historical figures of the past that they admire. So, not a bad book, just not really like Doctor Who or Back to the Future.

Time Travellers Never Die --- by Jack McDevitt --- What a book, what a book, what a book. What a yarn! Jack’s not the first author to fish in the deep waters of time travel. Books on the subject have almost become legion. Even mainstream fiction has used the device as a vehicle to prepare the ground for a tale. McDevitt spins a good yarn. His voyagers travel to ancient Greece; to the march at Selma; to the opening night of Shakespeare’s Hamlet at the Globe; to see the great comet of 1811 and to visit with Michelangelo. The novel is full of twist and turns the greatest of which is when they have to “un-kill” one of the travellers. There’s mystery; there’s suspense and there’s fun adventure. Just the book that you’ll enjoy reading.

This book was entertaining from start to finish. For A time travel novel it was first rate. the plot moves quickly and the charaters were interesting and believeable. well worth the time. A great summer read.

Not the best of Jack McDevitt's work, or perhaps I am used to expect lots from this author. Although a lighter read than books from Academy series, it is not as much fun as Alex Benedict books. Still, the book was interesting enough to make it worth while.
