    PDF Conrad Richter  The Waters of Kronos Kindle Ç The Waters PDF \  waters epub, kronos download, The Waters ebok, The Waters of Kronos PDFThis started off so promising an old man visits the town of his youth only it's laying at the bottom of a lake By some means he manages to travel back in time only he's still an old man and see the town in its heyday as well as all the faces of old now long since buried However no one recognizes him and he remains very much an outsiderWhat can I say? It was disappointing Pages of reminiscing very little dialog basically an elderly man looking back at his life and his efforts to lay things to rest before he joins his ancestors Not too exciting and ultimately unsatisfying like a dream One reader here on GR compared it to the feeling you get when you save your sundae's cherry to eat last and then find its a radish I couldn't say it betterVery different from his book The Trees
