The Einstein See-Saw   By: (1889-1945)

Book cover

In "The Einstein See-Saw," author Miles John Breuer presents a captivating science fiction novel that combines elements of time travel, alternate realities, and mind-bending paradoxes. The story revolves around a group of scientists who stumble upon a groundbreaking invention: a see-saw-like machine that allows people to travel through time.

Breuer's narrative style immediately grabs the reader's attention, setting a fast pace that never waivers throughout the book. The author effortlessly blends complex scientific concepts with an engaging plot, providing enough detail to make the story believable while still keeping it accessible to readers with varying levels of scientific knowledge.

The characters in "The Einstein See-Saw" are well-developed and multilayered, with their personalities and motivations intricately woven into the narrative. Each character adds a unique perspective to the time travel experiment, raising thought-provoking questions about the ethical implications and consequences of altering the past.

One of the strongest aspects of the novel is the way Breuer explores the consequences of time travel. Rather than simply presenting it as a fun adventure, he delves into the potential dangers and moral dilemmas associated with manipulating the past. The characters face tough choices and grapple with the implications of their actions, providing a depth and richness to the story that goes beyond a simple science fiction thriller.

Furthermore, Breuer's attention to detail is commendable. His meticulous research is evident in the accurate scientific explanations and the incorporation of real historical events. This integration adds an extra layer of authenticity to the narrative, making the time travel elements feel more grounded in reality.

However, despite these strengths, there are a few moments in the book where the plot becomes somewhat convoluted, especially during the more complex time paradoxes. While this is an inherent risk in time travel stories, at times it may leave readers scratching their heads and needing to reread passages to fully grasp the intricacies of the various timelines and interactions.

In conclusion, "The Einstein See-Saw" is an intelligent and thought-provoking science fiction novel that manages to deliver an exciting and engaging story while grappling with deep philosophical questions. Miles John Breuer's writing style, well-developed characters, and attention to detail make this book a compelling read for both science fiction enthusiasts and those interested in exploring the boundaries of time and reality.

Tony Costello leaned glumly over his neat, glass topped desk, on which a few papers lay arranged in orderly piles. Tony was very blue and discouraged. The foundations of a pleasant and profitable existence had been cut right out from under him. Gone were the days in which the big racket boss, Scarneck Ed, generously rewarded the exercise of Tony's brilliant talents as an engineer in redesigning cars to give higher speed for bootlegging purposes, in devising automatic electric apparatus for handling and concealing liquor, in designing beam directed radios for secret communication among the gangs. Yes, mused Tony, it had been profitable.
