An underachieving (but amiable) MIT lab assistant discovers the key to temporal travel in Joe Haldeman’s The Accidental Time Machine. His private life a mess, he voyages through the future — and (of course) adventure, love, and personal growth ensue.

For Fans of…
Time travel, ”hard SF,” and slacker antiheroes.

Bottom Line
The comparisons may be unfair, but this smart, brisk, and even charming tale has none of the emotional or philosophical heft of Haldeman’s Forever books. B
