ly. Feeling despondent, I turned and walked sullenly from the lake's edge into the woodland once more, with no definite purpose in mind, only a meandering thought of my dismal situation. My thoughts morphed, in succession, from anxiety to despair, to anger, to frustration, and in my frustration I knelt down and picked up a fallen branch from the ground, walked to the nearest tree, and eyed a strange, protruding knob that stuck out from the trunk.

definitely a great book to read!
specially the concept of infinite time loops is interesting so is the writer's way of handling the sequance related to this time travel.
a great mix of science fiction and mythology
