    1. "Predator" is the first of the Robots in Time Series, but also includes the short story "Robot Visions" by Isaac Asimov, on which this series is based.In the year 2030, robotics has advanced to the degree that humaniform robots are able to manage city functions. Then one-by-one these city governors fall into comas - except for Mojavi Center Governor, that is. He realizes he will shut down as well, so he splits into his 6 component robots and each one flees to a different point in the past. Robot [...]


    2. I realize that this book was intended for younger readers, but it wasn't very good. First off, the whole premise of time travel was completely stupid. Saying that the uncertainty principle combined with the chaos effect of miniaturization can allow time travel is completely nonsensical.The "experts" that Hunter brings with him were not very smart.

    3. I may have really enjoyed this book if I had read it when I was 11 or 12, but I still think that the illogical behavior of the main characters would have driven me nuts.

    4. Definitely geared toward young readers. I didn't know this when I started it so I was a bit disappointed. It's extremely linear and the characters are a bit one dimensional. I had a really hard time swallowing the dinosaur plot elements. Still, I'd be happy to read it to children and the writing doesn't make my eyes bleed like many other books. Just wish had been better conceived and had more layers of plot.
