Bearing an Hourglass is a fascinating, richly imagined tale that reaches beyond the normal science fiction/fantasy realm. When life seems pointless to Norton, he accepts the position of Incarnation of Time. With the other incarnations—Death, Fate, War, and Nature—already distracting him, Satan springs a cunning trap. Science fiction/fantasy legend Piers Anthony combines a gripping plot with a serious and thought-provoking study of good and evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcus | 3/22/2011

    " This book did not age as well as the first in the series. Much of the living backwards concept just didn't fit correctly and too much time was spent in illusions for my taste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pandora | 3/16/2011

    " Very slow; very tough slog; but interesting concepts and some parts w little better than others. Overall, rather depressing, but I don't like to quit before I finish reading. Not as good as Pale Horse... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee (Fiction Fool) | 2/3/2011

    " I read this before I started my goodreads account. Review forthcoming in the future.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 1/16/2011

    " Part of a favorite series of mine. I am usually a bit mind boggled at the end of this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 1/1/2011

    " This is the 2nd in the series, it worked with the concept of time. It got a bit "heady" about the different issues/concepts of time, so it got a bit twisted around at times. It was not as fast moving as the first book, but well written and interesting plot twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle S. | 12/18/2010

    " Really liked the story and the character but it went int intense science things that i just wasnt into, all kinds of time space continuum and stuff. Right over my head but still good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronald | 12/16/2010

    " Probably the best book I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/7/2010

    " confusing but good and i don't have the time for a proper review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/3/2010

    " Slightly less interesting than the first book in the series, On a Pale Horse. But still a fascinating read about the Incarnation of Time, who lives backwards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 12/1/2010

    " see my pale horse review for my comments on the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 10/21/2010

    " Bearing an Hourglass focuses on the incarnation of time. Although time has some of the more interesting powers, the storyline is just okay, which was not helped by the "ghost marriage" subplot sidetracking it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted | 9/29/2010

    " I loved the Incarnations series from Piers Anthony when I was a kid. This particular story was my favorite of the series. I want to find these books and see re-read them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 9/17/2010

    " One of my all time favorite novels involving time travel - part of a great series too! "
