I continue to be amazed by John Varley's books. Although I can't say it was a thrill ride the entire way, it was a wonderful read. This book is certainly more "normal" SciFi reading than his Eight Worlds series.
This is one of the best time travel books I have ever read. I give this book 5 stars.
This was a great book. I really enjoyed it.
The story kept twisting and turning, giving me surprises every time, which was great. It starts with the title and the cover: "Mammoth," and a big picture of a woolly mammoth. My first thought was this was a book version of a Saturday Monster Movie, with a frozen mammoth like I've seen hundreds of times before. But then the back cover text provides the first twist: with that frozen mammoth is a dead human, frozen along side for 12,000 years, wearing a wristwatch.
This was not a straightforward book. This book had a story that twisted and turned, and surprised me every time I thought I had it figured out. And that made is a nonstop page turner. Lots of fun. Highly recommended.
5 of 5 stars.
