    1. 3 and a half stars.Time travel is one of the more interesting sub-genres in Science Fiction. It juxtaposes present day subjectivity with a trip to either the past or future. There’s a lot of good time travel fiction out there, Time and Again, Lest Darkness Fall, The Time Machine, Timeline, and Silverberg’s Hawksbill Station come to mind from what I’ve read. There was also an Irwin Allen TV show, The Time Tunnel, that gamely tried to be entertaining. I believe it lasted one season, but it [...]

    2. exceedingly minor outing from Silverberg, alas! the time-traveling premise is fun and he definitely makes ancient Egypt come alive. his descriptions are wonderful. unfortunately, when the masks are removed and the time travelers are revealed, the dialogue becomes rather lame and dated. in the end this is one of those rare novels where the brevity actually works against it. the briefness cut off what could have been an absorbing immersion into a fascinating cultured now I'm going to tart up my re [...]

    4. Πέμπτη επαφή με το έργο του Ρόμπερτ Σίλβερμπεργκ και γι'ακόμη μια φορά έμεινα ευχαριστημένος, αν και όχι ενθουσιασμένος. Πρόκειται για μια μεγαλούτσικη νουβέλα επιστημονικής φαντασίας, με κεντρικό θέμα ένα ταξίδι πίσω στον χρόνο, στην Αίγυπτο της Δέκατης Όγδοης Δυναστεία [...]

    5. Silverberg's novella seems similar to those one might see in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, but perhaps this one didn't make the cut. While the story itself takes several diverting turns, it also has some troubling problems, not the least of which is that a 27-year-old begins a sexual relationship with a slave girl who is described as "around 16 or 17." Silverberg also doesn't establish the time travel "rules" of his universe. Surely one would think that having three people stuck i [...]

    6. Tebas das Mil Portas, um título que na realidade se refere à cidade de cem portas de Tebas da antiguidade egípcia, é um romance escrito por Robert Silverberg nos inícios da década de 90 do século XX, reflectindo de uma forma algo superficial sobre as implicações que as viagens no tempo poderõ vir a ter sobre a vida humana. Tebas é na realidade uma cidade do Antigo Egipto, designada por Uaset em antigo egípcio, sendo a capital do reino durante o Império Novo, entre 1550 a.C. e 1070 a [...]

    7. Robert Silverberg offers a simple but fascinating story about Edward Davis, a time travelling historian who journeys into ancient Egypt to rescue two of his lost colleagues. Silverberg does a great job with his storytelling. He brings ancient Egypt alive with a delicate, descriptive language, and to a lesser extent does the same to his characters who remain vague, but perhaps for a reason.The plot is extremely straightforward, even to the point of being implausible, but somehow the piece captiva [...]

    8. A quick read, this read more like a short story than a novel, and at 116 pages, perhaps it was. I would've liked to have had more details along the way about the characters, but they were not well developed. I think this biggest problem with this book is that it had no climax. It carried along at a steady keel, with minimal ups and downs. It was interesting, but not very engaging.

    9. I borrowed this book a couple of times sometime between 1999 and 2001 from the school library, when I was about 10 years old (give or take). Looking back, I only have vague memories as to the plot, but I do recall being titillated by its "adult content" It was one of the first books I'd read which contained the word "fuck" as well as one or two sex scenes Haha

    10. This was exponentially better than I could have ever imagined; I thought it would just be a junk quick read between bigger books, but little did I know that in just over a hundred pages it would suck me in and have my imagination obtained with the characters, wishing myself there.

    11. It's well paced, and the reader is quickly and easily immersed into its world without clunky exposition. It did wrap up a bit too quickly, it could easily have been dragged out a few more chapters, but as it is it's a satisfying read.

    12. Quite an unexpected ending that I truly enjoyed ;)

    13. Not a bad book, but it could have used some filling out, I think. Only 116 pages, so a fast read, but not a lot of depth to it. And the ending wound up feeling very abrupt.

    14. The premise is good but too damn short! There so much action to explore! I wish this book could have a sequel because I felt that it misses somethingA quick 1 day read.

    15. Not staggeringly amazing.

    16. I have read this book a long time ago (10 years or more) but remember absolutely nothing about it, so it must have been pretty unremarkable (therefore the 2-stars rating).

    17. I was surprised by the ending, I'll admit. Overall the detail was amazing.
