5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb hard science-fiction book!!
I just absolutely enjoyed this book! It is rare to find a book with real science but with also a very entertaining story. Some ideas in the book are very original. I also recommend Twistor and I hope that J. Cramer will publish more novels in a near future!

3.0 von 5 Sternen a light switch?
On a whole I enjoyed Einstein's Bridge. It did have a tendency to over explain things... a hazard of the genre I suppose. Somehow I just kept picturing someone explaining how a light switch works every time they walked into a new room. :) Regardless, it kept me interested and turning pages, hallmarks of a good read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun ideas and a good read, 22. Dezember 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
Starts with a realistic picture of scientists at work and adds some fantastic ideas for a fun, fast story. The science aspects are interesting and relevant to the story. Shows the politics behind doing big science in both government and academia. Some of the non-scientist character development is a little tedious and shallow hence 4 stars instead of 5.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor attempt at hard sci-fi., 16. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
The editors really blew it on this one. While the author starts with a decent, if fairly worn set of premises, and has a few genuinely unique ideas strewn about, he obviously can't help but tell us everything he knows about the defunct SSC project along with some physics wet-dream stuff. This candy is only good when skillfully mixed with good characterization and plot pacing. Instead, we get fairly 2D characters, ham-handedly described, and reams and reams of Q&A designed to bore the reader into skipping ahead to see if anything ever actually happens, or if this is a tour guide disguised as fiction. Frequently, the "conversations" turn into a brain dump of the author's banal familiarity and bias on everything from Dallas society to particle physics. People don't talk like this!
Then it gets worse. Just as things seem to be able to get interesting, a cheesy deus ex machina gets pulled and saves the day. Instead of putting us out of our misery and ending it there, Cramer then continues by having our heroes play politics. I'm not kidding. Was he trying for humor? The one love story seems contrived and is as limp as a month old asparagus. The deepest irony is that the lone female character, used pretty lamely as a foil througout, is a bad scifi writer.
There is plenty of good hard SF out there. Read "Cosm" by Benford instead of this dreck.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Breathtaking, 9. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
I haven't read many science fictions, but this one just blew me away. It was so entertaining and was very hard to stop once I started reading. If other science fictions were half as good as this one, I would have read all of them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Science, good Fantasy, 5. April 1999
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
The first 150 pages of the book are boring, and should have been shortened. After that, it's just fascinating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating book concerning the possibilities in science., 28. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
I found this book to be amazingly accurate in physical knowledge of the universe. The book was based on actual possibilites in real-world physics. Although higly objective, these certainly do exist (e.g. the probability of there being an infinite number of parallel universes). If one is interested in physics, specifically quantum and dynamic probabilities, as well as a science fiction theme, read Einstein's Bridge.

4.0 von 5 Sternen excellent twist, 14. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
Cramer takes what would be a worthwhile, but, not particularly original disaster book (that he, to his credit pokes fun at) and twists the second half into a delightful telling of our history with a terrible inside joke. I was about to give up when this twist captured my interest and swept me through. I will agree with others that the ending was not satisfying. I appreciate the use of cycles, but, we deserve a bit more. Overall, you shouldn't miss this one.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good science and politics, endless novel, 31. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
Interesting and pleasantly educational. A little extra time spent on a plot outine (especially to come up with AN ENDING, which this book totally lacks -- it has a stopping instead) would turn an average book into a solid effort.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Einstein's Bridge (Taschenbuch)
I really enjoyed Twistor, so when I saw another book written by John Cramer I eagerly bought it. It starts out slow, then turns into an action adventure with a touch of romance. It's full of exciting ideas in physics, computers, genetic engineering and time travel. John Cramer is one of the few scientists who can write exciting science fiction. All I can say negative about this book is that it ends just when its getting really exciting! Sequel?
