Read full description of the books:
This was my second reading of this book, and how glad I am that I went with the nagging conviction that this was indeed the book I needed to read next, for I got much more out of it this time.
Our hero is an archeologist of his own past. Even before his flight in the time machine, he is obssessed with his old lover and the unsatisfactory triangle with her other lover, his best friends. The details are revealed haphazardly but what seems to drive him the most is the desperate hope that he will eventually be able to calibrate his return to a time before it all flew apart.
Published in 1997, inspired by the works of H.G.Wells, A Scientific Romance is not romantic, unless you consider brooding about lost love romantic. It offers a grim forecast of a bleak future in such a way as to nail the reasons why to our current way of life. He does this without being evangelical and indeed his arduous trek throughout Britain, while studded with symbolism and loaded with irony, is well paced.
I never did warm to our neurotic hero, but I was pleased when it turned out that he was, after all that, a caring, decent individual willing to go that extra mile, for love. And his anylysis is so bang on, and he rarely panics, so that he is able somehow to throw his message across time so that we may wake out of our stupor and change our ways before they destroy us.
