City at the End of Time

City at the End of TimeCity at the End of Time by Greg Bear
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

When I learned of this book some time ago, I was intrigued by the premise of time and space gone awry, and of a group of misfits who will save reality. Despite some negative reviews, I finally purchased a copy and tried to slog my way through it. Let me be clear: I really wanted to enjoy this book. I don’t expect to fully understand the metaphysics and astrophysics in a story like this, but it needs to be clear enough that my “willing suspension of disbelief” isn’t taxed by gleaning nothing from chapters where there is nothing understandable to stand on. I finally and reluctantly realized I was not enjoying it, so I abandoned the book part way through. This will appeal to some; it didn’t appeal to me.
