3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit too much, 26. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Making of the Atomic Bomb (Taschenbuch)
I love history, math and science, and have a technical advanced degree, but still managed to have a tough time getting through this book. In an attempt to impress us, I get the idea that Rhodes sat down and included every microscopic fact that he could come up. Richard, a bit of advise...sometimes less is more. I really don't care, for example, that Szilard didn't like the bed that was offered him in Bohr's guestroom. Rhodes also wrote in much too much detail about every little physics experiment that ever went in to the eventual development of the bomb. Again, I like science and can handle technical issues, but his discriptions just went on ad nauseum.
I do give this three stars because the topic is surely important. I am very interested in WWII history as well. However, I must confess that this was a bit of a letdown.

2.0 von 5 Sternen SKIP!, 7. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Timeline (Gebundene Ausgabe)
God am I glad I'm finally done with this book. It was entirely unbelievable from start to finish. I wholeheartedly agree with the reader below who said there were way too many close calls that could have (and should have) lead to the characters' deaths. We even get the obligatory head-on-the-chopping-block contrivance. By my estimation these people should have been dead within 5 minutes. The ending was completely ludicrous (ask yourself honestly, is that how you would have dealt with Doniger? )
I must also say that I disagree with the previous review - there wasn't anywhere near enough discussion of quantum mechanics. The little that was there demonstrated to me that (a) Chrighton knows nothing of the field and (b) it was just a convenient cover to somehow have a story about people going back in time. Although here is where he made a major mistake: the characters didn't go back into OUR time, they went to a parallel universe that differs in time. This is a big difference as it eliminates all the time travel paradox's that Chrighton tries to include.
A very weak effort on Chrighton's part.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Yeah, a bit too much., 8. November 1999
I could have done with a bit less. I am into golf, but with nearly 500 pages, this was a bit tiring in the end.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much Astrophysics, 8. November 1999
I guess I'm in the minority. I love reading science and I'm big into physics. But this book just didn't do it for me. Much too detailed exposition of astrophysics. Skip this one and read the (much) better "The Last Three Minutes" by Paul Davies for a very similar and much more enjoyable treatment of the death of the universe.
