The hallmark of a good book for me is one that leaves as lasting impression, and where I am haunted by vignettes and quotes and the overall feel of the place for a long time afterward. The Time Trip is one of those rare novels.

I first read this book in 1993 and have been looking for another copy ever since, and am overjoyed that it has just been re-released in a Kindle edition.

I’ll admit that trying to explain this book to anyone will probably result in a weird stare as you try to categorize it. It defies categorization, and can more properly be explained as an experience because the author uses language and dialog in such a manner that it is an integral part of the story.

It is, and is not: a time travel book, a love story, a metaphysical exploration of human nature, humor in an almost British tongue-in-cheek manner, and expose of the afterlife. If I were a librarian trying to find the best place to catalog this book, I’d have to give up and start a new genre for it.

For the first dozen or so pages, your reaction will probably be much like mine: you’ll think it silly, outdated, and probably not your kind of read.

Then something magical happens… You get pulled in why the writing style and the story twists. You’ll laugh at unexpected places, re-read sections to make sure you really just read that, and wake up from sleep the next day wondering why the image of a drunken Gilgamesh is still in your head.

Weeks and months later as you sit in some restaurant taking a drink and looking around… You will spot a certain type of waitress, you’ll think of Nina, and an unexpected laugh will catch you in mid-swallow and you’ll end up spitting the drink out of your nose. Yes, it’s that kind of book.

Rob Swigart has that rare gift that one of my other favorite authors, Douglas Adams (of “Hitchiker’s Guide To the Galaxy” fame) has: he can take a preposterous tale, fill it full of fringe characters that you’ve actually met in your own travels, and poke fun at the thin walls of what we call real life.

In the end, you almost wish this kind of tale were true. That perhaps what was presented to you in this rollercoaster ride though time and places is the real world after all, and your very ordinary life of everyday technology and rules is just a thin veneer intended to just keep you moving quietly along.

I read Mr. Swigart's great sci-fi novel: "The Time Trip," because I wanted to see how it compared to my own sci-fi novel: "Time Trip on a Moebius Strip." Even though his novel was nothing like my own, I was completely amazed by his writing...Can this man write! His story is way out...He has this brillant computer scientist teleported to ancient Mesopotamia, 2642 B.C., looking for his wife who had committed suicide in a microwave oven, believe it or not...He then meets up with his wife in a former incarnation, who doesn't even know him, and who is working as a temple prostitute. She then introduces him to of all people, the king "Gilgamesh" who becomes his best friend...They have many adventures together...What happens after that you will have to read the book to find out....If you like sci-fi novels by Kurt Vonnegut, then the novels of Mr. Rob Swigart are right up your alley....

I read this as a little kid in the 80s...and the story stuck with me for some reason. In fact, I still have a deep interest in Sumerian mythology because of this book. I'm pretty sure I'm going to grab the kindle version and read it again.

A great book that I first read almost 20 years ago. Swigart takes you on a surreal trip through the Silicon Valley of the late seventies and through ancient Sumeria. Poking fun at life, death, God and Computers, I recommend it for anyone with a warped sense of humour
