    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookAs everyone knows there are two main families of time travel stories There are the ones like Back to the Future where it's possible to change the past and there are ones like Hitchhiker's Guide where everything fits together like a jigsaw And then there's Cryptozoic which doesn't slot into any normal classification I won't even try to explain how it works but it's different all right The book has an interesting haunted atmosphere though it doesn't make much sense

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookI had high hopes for this novel Actually I had never anticipated reading any book as much as this one for some strange reason Most likely the description that other reviewers had Also I have never been let down by any novel This novel is completely unintelligible and there are many parts that annoy me completelyThe main character has the record for mind traveling the closest to any human age but still hasn't reached humans yet Yet after he goes back to do his assigned job he travels to the 20th centuryand better yet apparently everyone can now mind travel to the 18th century with the ease of breathing Also the backward time philosophy is complete asininity and the novel was very boring and preachy It took a bit of nerves to be able to finish this disappointment I wouldn't recommend this book to any one except for those who like terrible philosophies of time that have not one logical thread of thought in them

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookI have grown very fond of Aldiss' writing and looked forward to this read The premise is set up well as we follow Edward Bush as he 'mind travels' in time back to eras when no humans inhabited the planet We soon learn he is situated in 2093 but 'floats' in the Cryptozoic age watching what goes on He can also see his contemporaries who might cross his path as material On returning to a seedily drawn Britain we soon learn that we now live under a dictatorship and there is a danger for Bush His father lives in a state of drunkenness perhaps mourning his late wife and the world is crumbling around him Bush can't feel settled and takes the opportunity to grab an offer by the government to go back again The story that ensues is almost metaphysical in its scope It will set you thinking about how time flows and Aldiss is damn good at seeding imaginations but with this book I felt he must have been depressed or miserable as his other books I've read were not as dark i

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookCan the disenchanted artist protagonist find happiness with a dirty slut who doesn't bathe enough Can he overcome the relationship problems caused by falsely calling her a traitor and gunning her down with a laser pistol Can he overcome his Freudian distrust of all women caused by his mother locking him out in the garden in his boyhood And do we have time to care when the sophomoric proposition the time is actually flowing backwards becomes chillingly TRUE And the only reason we haven't noticed this is because our talents at precognition are a lot better than our memory Or is all of this the deranged imagining of a psychotic Aldiss doesn't seem to be sure and is hence a little ambiguous in his use of ambiguity Weirdozoic Ultimately this one falls down on the number of dinosaurs In spite of the cover there are hardly any Don't judge a book by it's

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookThe mind travel idea doesn't make sense or seem to be applied consistently and there's an awful lot of sub Jungian junk delivered in a boring way Also the male attitudes to women are very much of its time and don't travel well to ours

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookEddie Bush is an artist and an employee of the Wenlock Institute founded by the psychologist who realized around 2090 that the only thing constraining us within the flow of time is our mind accurately our perception It seems we have an undermind that's usually under complete control of our overmind which governs such things as our perceptions of the reality around us By use of various mental disciplines effectively a mantra and a magic potion people can prise their undermind free of the clenched iron fist of their overmind and thereby travel through all of past time although the task becomes difficult the closer the traveler comes to the present of 2090 Travelers who encounter each other in the past can interact directly with each other can punch each other on the nose or make love Eddie tries both but cannot

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBooksecond read 4 February 1991 This time with the expectation that this book dealt primarily with psychology and British politics I set out to read it again I still found it pretty dry with only a little bit of time travel adventure to spice things up Mediocre first read January 1973 I read this book in high school but was disappointed that it was not a straight forward

    Paperback ↠ An Age eBook æ An Age eBookCryptozoic as a novel has some interesting ideas but ultimately this one falls down The central concept is that humankind has discovered how to travel in time but only a select few have the ability to travel very close to their own 'real time' The science and technology is controlled by a future fascist government that has been overtaken by a military coup and seeks to control the populace The central protagonist is one Edward Bush and he is beginning
