    One thought on “A Century Of Progress”

    1. Main guy Norlund gets blackmailed to helping some timetravelers to wipe out Hitler in all the timelines availableor something. Are these timeboppers jerks? Desperatemanipulative smarties? Anyway, Norland goes to the veryheart of the 30's and recruits a guy to put up ceramiccylinders on trees/poles/houses to fight the coming reichwith these relay thingies that will do the job(--orsomething). Norlund is out for nazi steak after being a littleconfused on why he should bother. This book is especiall [...]

    2. Well, I finished it so I think it merits 2 stars. It really wasn't a good book. As other reviewers noted, the first 3/4 of the book was a very slow read. Then the finish was too fast. The book is about an elderly man who is recruited by people from the future to go back in time and alter history so that Hitler does not unleash his dastardly evil upon the world. As others have said, Saberhagen does an excellent job of depicting the 30's. But the pace that the author used in writing the book was f [...]

    3. 1/10/11: Much like a movie trailer, the blurb on the back of the book should contain enough of a hook to get you reading, but shouldn't tell you about anything that happens after the first act. I can only assume that this rule was followed by the writers of the blurb because after 179 pages (nearly 2/3 through), the author hasn't even bothered with exposition. Not only do I not know what's going on (as an uneducated reader, that is), but the protagonists still have no idea what's going on. This [...]

    4. Seriously? The girl they saved becomes a Hitler-fighter? Ulterior motives much, people???? WTF.Also - for every one of the infinite timelines in which Hitler exists, there are an infinite number in which he was never born, an infinite number in which he went on to do something innocuous (like be an artist), an infinite number in which he subjugated the entire world, and an infinite number in which someone else subjugated the world. The idea of doing good by eradicating Hitler from as many timeli [...]

    5. The cover and the blurb on the back compelled me to read this book, but in the end it wasn't really worth it. The first 3/4 of the book is interesting but very slow and I was beginning to wonder when something of significance was going to occur. The last 1/4 is where most of the action takes place, but it felt very rushed and choppy.

    6. A Century of Progress (1983) a Hitler Wins tale set via Time-Travel in an Alternate History future where the Third Reich rules.

    7. It was a good plot, and it had some good characters. I could have been really invested. But it also had the bad habit of being excessively hard to follow.
