Choose Your Own Adventure (1979-1998)
Atrapados en el futuro (Spanish)
Richardson, Roy (interior)
This book is typical of later books. It has fewer endings than earlier books, and is a pretty typical plot: time travel. This time you are traveling trough a mysterious dome you discover in the woods in Oregon. I guess Packard felt the Cave of Time was played out. You end up in a strange future where the world is overtaken by dolphin-like overlords, and humans number in the hundreds.
All-in-all one of Packard's weaker entries. You can tell he was probably tiring of writing CYOA books by this time.
The Power Dome is about a middling entry for this series. It's not very good, but it's not very bad, either. The plot seems at least vaguely similar to the story in H. G. Wells' novel The Time Machine.
One thing I did like was the ending where you tell your geology professor about the titular dome and he goes exploring for it himself and disappears, never coming back. This was at least mildly intelligent by the series' standards. It's not often your own actions can have negative impacts on others in a CYOA book.
