Read full description of the books:
Love this SO much! I remember reading it, 20-something years before and loving every moment of it!
To get the full impact of this novel, one has to realise this was one of the very first sci-fi books in my life. I started reading it out of sheer curiousity, just to see what it was about, this book I found stuck on the upper shelves of our home library.
And gradually I grew to love it. The idea that at any point in time there are parallel worlds, which are simply on a different schedule on their move through time seemed pretty much innovative to me then.
And them it blew my mind! The idea that a person might be able to just step back and forth between the worlds, the parallel ones, due to some private quirk of their genetic makeup? Liberating! Imagine that you can just move from the dust and weariness of the city to the nature as it was in the prehistoric times. And not through the paltry means of time-travel, which I found inherently slippery what with all the conundrums of the cause-and-effect ripples through time. Just imagine killing some fly in the Paleo and coming back and not finding your family? And whereever would your physical body go in this scenario? Just exactly how time and space would interact in this and a hundred of other conceivable unpleasant scenarios? And what about the inconceivable ones? Nasty and headache inducing! No, this story was different from all the crude time-fricking. It involved hidden abilities of some humans, born lucky or unlucky, depending on whether they managed to survive in that tumultous world. I loved every minute of this one and came back for a refresher multiple times.
I think this one formed my later prefisposition to sci-fi and even to science altogether. Still love it and cherish those happy memories.
