Beschreibung

An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young woman's resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society, from the inventive imagination of Joyce Carol Oates

"Time travel"—and its hazards—are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America—"Wainscotia, Wisconsin"—that existed eighty years before.  Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of "rehabilitation"—but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating.

Arresting and visionary, Hazards of Time Travel is both a novel of harrowing discovery and an exquisitely wrought love story that may be Joyce Carol Oates's most unexpected novel so far.

    Not at all goodIf you or I had written this book it would never have been published. Ms Oates, writing outside her usual territory, wanders into the mist, doing not much more than retelling her 1950s college years without actually writing a story.I received a review copy of "Hazards of Time Travel" by Joyce Carol Oates (HarperCollins UK) through NetGalley.com.
  • (3/5)
    The quality of the language and its flow save this read from disaster. The parallels with the self-repressions of 1959-1960 and the state repressions of the 2010s is good, but for a book which discusses free-will there is nothing but ambiguity to be found.

    Ok....but story was a bit jumbled; good characters; clever idea for a story
  • (3/5)
    Too many unanswered questions and way too much time spent repeating the same things over and over, including the love part with the teacher.
  • (2/5)
    This is one of the few (of the many I've read) books by Oates that I believe is poorly written and not a worthwhile read.As punishment for speaking freely, Adrianne, a young woman in a dystopian future, is sent to a small university in Wisconsin in the late 1950's/early 1960's to serve her time. There, she becomes Mary Ellen. While warned of the dire consequences should she even hint at being from a different time (instantaneous combustion for herself? death for her entire family back in the future?) Mary Ellen falls in love with an assistant professor, Ira Wolfman, who she thinks is also from the future and serving time in the past. Much of the book consists of her moping about how much she "loves" him. Every action she takes is based on what she thinks would please him. These characters don't seem real, and many of their actions don't make sense. Nearly 40% of the ratings on Amazon were 1 or 2 star, with a common complaint being that the book read like a "morose school girl diary."

    Hazards of Time Travel is a more insidious 1984, why use rats when people will do? A great and harrowing read, as a dissenter is reeducated without her own awareness.
