Revise the World

On March 16, 1912, British polar explorer Titus Oates commits suicide by walking out of his tent into an Antarctic blizzard, to save Robert Falcon Scott and the other members of the English exploration team. His body is never found - because he was snatched away into the year 2045 by scientists experimenting with a new faster-than-light drive. Arriving in the future, Oates stubbornly sticks to his old explorer job and sets off on an intergalactic adventure that leads to both knowledge and self-knowledge.

    "A Hero"
    Would you listen to Revise the World again? Why?

    Probably not. I have never listened to the same book twice.


    What other book might you compare Revise the World to and why?

    Connie Willis! And that is a HUGE compliment. Captain Titus Oates is that rarest of literary characters: extraordinary... and credible. He is an alien: an Edwardian gentleman. He is incredible and incomprehensible. And very human.

    The secondary characters are somewhat overwhelmed by "Cap", but they are full enough to give him relief.

    I will be listening to more Clough, in hopes of finding someone as riveting as Titus.


    Which character – as performed by Eric Yves Garcia – was your favorite?

    Duh


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The charge of the light brigade.


    Any additional comments?

    There's a story, of course. A good one. Who cares?
