This is a story about Red, his super-computer named either "Flowers of Evil" or "Leaves of Grass" (he has owned them both), and a great highway stretching far into the past and future. While trying to avoid a pack of 10 assassination attempts, we meet Red and his friends from all possible pasts and all possible futures. Zealazny also does an interesting trick in this book of Chapters 1 and 2. Chapter 1 is a contiguous storyline about Red. Chapter 2 is about everyone else. It's a very interesting technique and it just makes the story a little more enjoyable. I really liked this book and I hope you will too!
Zelazny's classic time story. The highway stretches forever and you can pass yourself on it if you aren't careful. Fantastic!!
"A mindbender of a book, and a treat for Zelazny fans."
The Road runs from the unimaginable past to the far future, and those who travel it have access to the turnoffs leading to all times and places--even to the alternate time-streams of histories that never happened. Why the Dragons of Bel'kwinith made the Road--or who they are--no one knows. But the Road has always been there and for those who know how to find it, it always will be!
I would rate this book right at the top of my list of worst book I have ever read. Great concept. Extremely poor execution. The second of his books I have read. The other wasn't as bad as this but it should have been enough warning not to waste my time further.
The last exit to Babylon....
