I'm a big Parker fan and this is his best in quite a while. I've rated recent books from 3-4 but this one I give a 5. There are two interesting plots woven into this book. Also, Jesse Stone has apparently overcome one addiction only to succumb to a worse one. And in keeping with Parker's recent trend, action is given the back bench to detection, character development, and dialog.
Superman is virtually absent from this story - appearing hardly at all in part 1 and only a little more in the second half. Also, the Kent/Superman character is only physically gifted but an intellectual and personality weakling in this very different take on Superman. I gave this two stars only because the Lex Luther character is unbelievably slimy - as good as Superman is dull.
Uninteresting characters with a boringly told plot. The hurricaine which might have made things a little interesting plays virtually no role. I agree with the first reviewer that the writing does not appeal.
I respectfully disagree with the other reviewers. I was thoroughly caught up in the time travel twists and turns. The characters WERE interesting and I did care what happened to them. It's also a chance to pick up a little Greek history along the way. All-in-all this is one of the most intriguing time travel novels I've read and kept me guessing till the end.
