Sintesi dell'editore

Madcap inventor Harry Gerber is hopeless when it comes to surviving in the real world. So he uses his genius to twist the laws of science and create his own tailor-made universe. Assisted by his straight-men co-conspirators, Joe Fletcher and the comely Sondra Tupperware, and powered by gluons, the stuff that holds our very atoms together, Gerber creates a "blunzer", enabling him to change the very nature of reality.

From a mirror-image world where sluglike parasites make slaves of humanity, to trees and bushes that grow fries and pork chops, to a rain of fish, Master of Space and Time takes listeners on the ultimate joyride. But once the gluons at the core of Harry's creation run out, disaster looms for Harry and his friends.

High physics and high jinks combine for a wild voyage that blurs the line between science and magic.

A fun ride, but not original

The book is well read, but I almost didn't make it through. I stuck it out though, and I'm glad I did because the ending isn't what I expected, but still not as much as I hoped for. Most of the plot is unoriginal and recycled from various sci-fi stories and fairy tales, and it's full of stupid people doing stupid things in unbelievable situations. Overall it was worth the time though--barely.

Very disappointing

In my opinion, the book is neither original nor well written, just as the last reviewer stated. Save your time and money.
