World Out of Time, A (1976)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
07.16.03

World Out of Time, A (1976) Written by Larry Niven. Jaybee Corbell is frozen after he dies. He's awakened two hundred years later, his mind transferred into the body of a criminal. This is because they can't bring back his original body, the tissue damaged from freezing. He's basically treated as a prisoner in an overcrowded world-until he volunteers to be a spaceship pilot for the State, the world government that rules everyone. If he didn't 'volunteer' then they would have erased his mind and found someone else who would. Well, he travels to the deep reaches of space where he's shunted some three million years into the future. It's a very different world. In fact, the Earth isn't where it used to be-it's been placed in orbit about Jupiter. He encounters an old woman, a near immortal, who has these strange cat snakes as pets. And Corbell soon encounters the 'Boys'-who seem to be just that. A bunch of immortal twelve-year olds who are all that's left of mankind but for a handful of 'normals', used for breeding purposes.A WORLD OUT OF TIME is an early work by Niven so it's not as engaging as his later books and it gets a trifle boring at times. Interesting speculation on the future, though.
