eBookstore doesn't have what? Time Traders? It is available for free. I put the links in message 34 of this thread.

OK - so if there's foot stomping and revoting in the offing, I'll join in , as I'd really prefer to read Time Machine or Snow Crash and discuss them with others (I know I can read them again any time I like )

That's the wonder of democracy, folks - things don't always work out the way that you personally would like . I think "Time Traders" is a good read, personally.

You do know we're just joshing, don't you Harry? Of course we'll read whats chosen. And most of us will go on to re-read The Time Machine, also.

Absolutely no reason why we can't have a separate thread to talk about TTM too - it just won't be an official MRBC thread.

Time Traders is ok. But it's definitely not great. To be honest, it's the weakest book in the list.

Dammit - arrived too late to give Snow Crash that crucial vote. Aargh!
However, on the brighter side (and I may step on toes here but it's only my opinion) good to see Red Mars bringing up the rear. I thought it was one of the dullest books I've ever read and put me off Kim Stanley Robinson for life. I really disliked that book and there are two sequels too.
I'd safely have it in the Ten Worst Books I've Ever Read list.
