Descrição do produto

Paul Levinson's astonishing science fiction novel is a surprise and a delight: In the year 2042, Sierra, a young graduate student in Classics, is shown a new dialog of Socrates, recently discovered, in which a time traveler tries to argue that Socrates might escape death by travel to the future! Thomas, the elderly scholar who has shown her the document, disappears, and Sierra immediately begins to track down the provenance of the manuscript with the help of her classical scholar boyfriend, Max.

The trail leads her to time machines in gentlemen's clubs in London and in New York, and into the past--and to a time traveler from the future, posing as Heron of Alexandria in 150 AD. Complications, mysteries, travels, and time loops proliferate as Sierra tries to discern who is planning to save the greatest philosopher in human history. Fascinating historical characters from Alcibiades to William Henry Appleton, the great nineteenth-century American publisher, to Hypatia and Socrates himself appear. With surprises in every chapter, Paul Levinson has outdone himself in The Plot to Save Socrates.

Por P.S. - Publicada na Amazon.com

Somewhere in my brain lie remnants of a minor in Philosophy from long ago. Paul Levinson's ambitious novel, "The Plot to Save Socrates," reminds me of how much I've forgotten. (Socrates? Name sounds familiar.) I found it to be educational, challenging, fascinating, clever, complex, and occasionally exhausting, but surely enjoyable.

You do have to pay attention, as the cast of characters are jumping places and eras like a game of musical chairs -- Time Travel chairs, which are their means of spanning millenniums. Fortunately, dates and locations are clearly labeled with each chapter and change, so it's easy enough for readers -- but not always for the travelers. Levinson writes, "She had to find out the date. The time-traveller's eternal question...."

Another favorite line: "He heard the hounds of paradox baying in some corner of his brain...." That might apply to me, but selective re-reads help, or perhaps there's a new App -- Paradox & Time Loop Check. I did find myself questioning motivation and intent a couple of times, but these are minor distractions in the scope of a satisfying story.

To quote Sierra, a main character: "Nothing is certain where time travel is concerned." I agree. It's fiction, very well written, so enjoy the ride.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Time Twisting Tale of Epic Proportions 16 de dezembro de 2016
Por Royce Sears - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
The Plot to Save Socrates is a head spinning time travel mystery that leads the reader deep into an action packed rabbit hole of cascading paradoxical events via a cast of characters assembled from across the ages. An intellectually stimulating read of epic proportions, The Plot to Save Socrates draws the reader in and keeps the pages turning all the way through. Highly Recommended!!

This is a review of the audio CD by Listen & Live Audio. If you are bothered by music and background noises in audio books, you are going to be annoyed. Some scenes include background chatter, screeching birds, etc. There is music at the end of chapters and scenes to lead into the next one. During dialogue of a telephone conversation, one person's side of the conversation is distorted. If you like old timey radio shows, you may like this.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A time travel adventure and mystery 26 de maio de 2013
Por Ian Reide - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Here we have a 21st century Classics student begin and uncover a plot to save Socrates (this is somewhat given away by the title of the novel). The story involves a great deal of to and through time travel, a willingness on the part of many characters to blithely accept the notion of time travel, and a willingness on the part of the reader to follow a convoluted plot (at times I felt as if I should make notes). The resolution was a tad weak, but certainly not bad.

If you enjoy time travel stories, Classics, or a complex story, this is for you.

THE PLOT TO SAVE SOCRATES

There's an old saying, "If you love Greek history and you're fascinated by time travel, you'll love Paul Levinson's The Plot To Save Socrates. If you're reading this in 2009, you'll likely disagree that it's an old saying, but if you time travel to 2061, you'll find that it's true.

Paul Levinson's delightful sci-fi book opens in New York in 2042. Sierra Waters, a student of the classics who is working on her dissertation, comes across a newly discovered dialog of Socrates. In it, an unidentified time traveler tries to convince Socrates to escape his death sentence by letting a cloned double drink hemlock while Socrates travels to the future.

As the characters time travel to different periods in the past and the future, the reader cannot help but be absorbed in not only the engaging plot, but also by the myriad questions that time travel raises. I think we all can relate to even the smallest incidents in our own lives that have profoundly changed the course of our personal history. In that sense, The Plot To Save Socrates really challenges our minds as we're led to contemplate how even the smallest adjustments in history could literally change its course.

Though written in a lighthearted style, the depth of research and thought that Paul Levinson put into the writing is clear and the result is truly a thought-provoking, breathtaking, and highly entertaining novel.
