We gave it a B

A man from the future is sent back into the past in order to save the human race. Sound familiar? Just imagine The Terminator in love beads, set in the Haight-Ashbury ‘hood of 1967, and you’ve got the plot of Lisa Mason’s Summer of Love. This trippy seasonal read flashes by in a fractal swirl of drugs, sex, and science-fiction technology, featuring characters with flower-child names like Starbright and dark sci-fi monikers like Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco. Culminating with the inevitable bonding — a great-great, etc. grandson procreates with his own ancestor in order to ensure the future of humanity — this book will initially grip your interest, but ultimately make you long for good old Ah-nuld.
