I read a lot of books I usually read them make some notes about them in my journals and then pass them on to other writers I met Paul Levinson on Myspace To be honest I bought THE PLOT to SAVE SOCRATES because I liked the title I was intrigued by the idea of a discovered dialogue that reveals that Socrates may have taken an opportunity that I can image Socrates being willing to take I enjoyed strapping myself to this remarkable time traveling adventurous romp and can't give this book away I must keep it If you don't get it after the first reading I recommend reading it a second time

Summary Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Paul Levinson

The Plot to Save SocratesY 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 a gentlemen's club in London and in New York and into the past and to a time traveler from her future posing as Heron of Alexandria in 150 AD Complicatio. This book is uniue to say the least The closest book I can think of with even a remotely similar setting would be The Just City but only just The only thing that the two have in common is an attempt to 'save' Socrates so he can live on and contribute to the world and the time travel aspectTo start this book doesn't have a linear plot line which leaves you with a real lack of complete understanding of the characters until the very end And I mean the very end as in the final page reveals information that you didn't already know Because of this scenes often are not connected as they are in other books and the reader is forced to wait until later to find out what happened This to me is both a flaw and a good thingAside from the obvious plot in the title the real focus of this book lies in the mechanics of time travel and the conseuences as well as the limits that can be done with it For someone who hasn't thought much about the concept this book proved to make it very interesting and enjoyable at the same timeIf there was any flaw to be found aside from the uniue non linear plot line I'd say that falls to the characters The reader views the story from multiple viewpoints and because of that you often don't learn of character's motivations during their viewpoints which in the end detached them a bit from me But that's really my only complaint and uite honestly I look forward to the next installment Even though it's incredibly difficult to find
