Piers Anthony, sometimes called Pier Xanthony, is the pseudonym of a Mundane character who was born in England in 1934, came to America in 1940, was naturalized in 1958, and moved to Xanth in 1977. His first story was published in 1963, and his first novel, Chthon, in 1967. As a result, Chronos spends large sections of the novel away from his brethren doing relatively uninteresting things. This does not make for scintillating prose.

My generosity towards Piers Anthony in my 4-star review of On A Pale Horse does not extend to Bearing an Hourglass. This was my least favorite volume in the series when I first read it in the mid-1980s, and a reread in 2013 did not improve my initial impression of the novel.

As with the first novel, the setting is an alternate Earth where magic and science coexist in equal parts. There exist incarnations of Death, Time, Fate, War, Nature, Good, and Evil, each of which are offices held by a succession of previously mortal folks.

This book obviously focuses on Time, or Chronos. I think Anthony just didn't know what to do with Chronos. To his credit (and the best of my recollection), Anthony planned the initial five volumes of this series out in advance, and each tale is interwoven, covering the interactions of the five main Incarnations with each other and with Satan. This might have worked against him in Bearing an Hourglass, as the backward nature of Chronos's life made spoilers an issue going forward. As a result, Chronos spends large sections of the novel away from his brethren doing relatively uninteresting things.

This does not make for scintillating prose. Additionally, some of the pointless musings on quantum physics and Anthony's perennial focus on T&A gets tiresome after awhile. Given how the series unfolds, consider this one a necessary evil to meet some of the essential characters in later books. The pre-Chronos (i.e. Nort) part of the novel is actually quite entertaining, though you still have to slog through the rest.

Fortunately, Fate (With a Tangled Skein) is up next, and I recall her book more than making up for the deficiencies of this one.

Norton is a great character that you grow to love but this book was kind of a bore. The powers of time are nowhere near as interesting as the powers of death (from the first book, On A Pale Horse). And I found there was quite a bit more filler in this book than there was in the first. In the first book, There was a decent enough section of Zane getting used to his powers as Death and how he truly affects people while Norton really just seems focused on fixing his own personal situation with his newfound powers and when he realizes he can't, He kind of goes through the motions of the job.

The plot ties with the first book so I give credit for Piers Anthony on that one. I just think that despite being a fast read, It's boring. The plot starts off well enough but the moment he gets the power of time, It all goes downhill. It's very recycled, plotwise, from the first book and fails to keep you interested. I wish he had gone in another direction with it.

Received on time and as expected. Book is a classic. The whole series is fun, if you can get away from Piers Anthony's tendency to be creepy. In its time it was noted but ignored. Now, his attitudes toward women may be seen as pretty lecherous. Therefore, it may be offensive to this generation - that would be a shame. My suggestion is to take it with a grain of salt and see the good in this series. No matter what generation you are, you may freely ignore the 8th book which came out much later and has no excuses. 1-7 (this is 2) are still good reads.

This is another installment in the series and if you have gotten to this novel than you must be hooked with the series. The interesting thing about all of the novels is how Anthony interconnects all of the characters. While some of the plot elements might seem to repeat themselves slightly, the character development and interaction is what kept me so interested as it was quite well done. Personally, I particularly enjoyed this book in the series as it dealt with a character who travels with an opposite time line than everyone else, making his interactions quite unique.

This was the first book I read of the series, despite it being book two. Each book is a stand-alone book in its own right, so I really don't think it'd matter much in which order you read them. I have the entire series in their first print hardback editions and I count them as among my most treasured. I am working on getting them on audiobook form from Audible Books since they've finally been released in digital audiobook format. It's wonderful that Amazon is finally releasing them in digital print as well, though only the first four books of the seven is available. So in the end I'll have the series in three different formats.

This book is about Father Time and how an ordinary man took the office and the trials and hell he had to go thru to hold and maintain the office. All while living backwards in time. It's a great read, and a very good choice to have in your library.

After reading the first of the series: "On a Pale Horse", I became very hooked on Piers Anthony 's work!

Really enjoy reading his novels.

This one in particular kept my attention throughout. An engaging story about FatherTime. It brought back childhood memories of when I used to play Father Time - but a very different story!

I won't spoil it for anyone. Just to say that I highly recommend it!

I liked most of this book and thought it followed pretty well to the first one (On a Pale Horse). However there were a few chapters that seemed to drag. Yes the reason for including the CT chapters was resolved in the end, but until that point those terribly written chapters almost made me stop reading this book.
While not as good as On a Pale Horse, bearing an hourglass delivers a story providing backdrop to the story from the first. It's a little muddled with the overwrought time,space, and reality stuff...and the adventures set up by Satan aren't incredibly interesting. Overall, a solid entry, and Norton is a well developed character with motivations that carry him throughout the novel.
