Sex and Drugs, No Rock and Roll
YOU THINK I'M AN ORDINARY FOOL OR A GOD DAMN FOOL.
As a big fan of Downward To Earth, The World Inside, At Winter's End, Sorcery of Majipoor, Starborne and House of Bones, I was wondering why more of Silverberg's writings were not available in audible. I am finding out cause the rest of his writings are not so good. This was written in 1969 and is full of hippie sex and hippie judgment. Talk about gays and blacks and such just thrown in to make the writer sound cool. RS is a big historian who loves to include Constantinople in a lot of his stories. Having lived through the sixties with free love, no bras and mini-skirts, I can see how some writers would think the future would be full of naked people having casual sex. RS forgets that all things are cyclical. I was also surprised that RS seems to call Poul Anderson a bigot. Anyways the story sucks.

Wow, I don't mind erotica but this is really dirty
What disappointed you about Up the Line?
The story failed to grasp me and the plot was really just a persons sex venture through history to have sex with an ancestor.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Anything with less creepy sex.
Did Paul Boehmer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
The overall narration was meh.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Possibly was so bored I did not want to finish it.
