What a pleasant surprise!! I selected this book from my VIP Rewards. I didn’t have my reading glasses when I chose this book. I chose it based on star rating, title and cover. I’m thrilled! This fast paced novel is exactly the type of novel I would normally choose! The time travel sci-fi angle mixed with the characters hooked me right from the start!! The main character has such a witty sense of dry humour! I found myself laughing out loud!! The narrator is fantastic!! He’s very charismatic! I give this novel a definite 10/10! I’m onto the 2nd book in this 4 book series (and I don’t have any qualms paying for it in credits!!) Enjoy!! ❤️❤️
This was a refreshingly different storyline than what I have been reading lately and that was wonderful! I didn't know this was part of a series, I must read more! The author's sense of humor is phenomenal and the narrator's delivery of this was immaculate!!
This book was surprisingly good! The narrator was the best I've ever heard, with faultless accents and numerous characters. The story is very gripping, and there's no telling where it's going to take you. I binged it in a very short amount of time, even though I didn't want it to end! The narration is So important in an audiobook, and this narrator was amazing.
What a neat surprise! This book was so good, I had to keep listening! Good job.
Such a great book. The narrator is fantastic too.
This was one of the worst books I have ever read. I’m always invested. Once I start a book I will stay until the end. I was disappointed.
Disappointed with this title. I listened for a few hours and just couldn\'t get into it. Also did not like the narration. Sorry - personal taste
I don't usually read this kind of book and wasn't sure about it, especially as the narrator sounded exactly like one of the readers from the Jodi Picoult book I'd just finished listening to. It was very disconcerting as I'd completely bought into the last character and I couldn't differentiate them. I stopped listening for a couple of weeks and picked it up again. Although the American accent of a bloke ostensibly from Chicester still made me a little dubious, Porter is such a good reader that I was soon carried away by the story and listened to it in one great binge. There were a few parts where I felt some tighter editing would have enhanced the narrative (hence 4 not 5) but the overall pace and arc were not spoiled.
I definitely will be reading/listening to the further adventures of Joseph Bridgerman, and hope he eventually manages to sync up with the love of his life.
Great story, very well written! I thoroughly enjoyed this. The narrator was fantastic. One can forgive the American accent for a British character because this narrator did such an amazing job.
The book was great but the narrator although good did not suit this english book as an American
I LOVEDDDD ITTTT!!! Not what I was expecting but I absolutely loved it.
Great storytelling with a fast pace. Can’t wait to hear the next installment. Lots of great quotes that I had to write down for future use. You think you know which way the story is going then it satisfyingly contorts your expectations. Just found this author and I am thoroughly impressed.
A time travel novel like no other.. Really enjoyed it. The author has a great sense of humour.
Excellent narration. Don’t forget you can speed up the narration.
Loved it! So excited that there is more to come. Want to binge these so bad. Can't wait!
Great new take on the time travel genre. Witty, fast paced, and engaging. One tiny flaw though. I love Ray Porter as a narrator. He was the only choice for the James Reece novels, but this book wants a British narrator. It’s completely set in the UK and the narrator switches from an English accent for all the secondary characters to an American accent for the main character while still using English colloquialisms.
Interesting plot line and characters. The frustration levels felt by Joe came across well. I was engaged enough by the end of the book to move straight on to the next book in the series.
A strange & very different story. After the 1st hour of listening, it rapidly held my attention. I LOVED it.
nice book, the story is different from what I'm used to but I got to the end of it
Really enjoyed this book, something a little different…
Intriguing story that doesn’t fail to keep your attention. Wanted it to keep going in the end. Would love sequel.
Really enjoyed this book.
Good writing, great narrator.
Rally nice, with a good pace.
A totally enjoyable VIP Selection! I wish other Audios in this series were in a book club.
a very good read
I received this book as a VIP selection. As a result, I have a new favorite author and narrator!! Fabulous audiobook!!
Love love love. The BEST narration and such a great story. Time travel can be so confusing and this author does such a great job making sure it all adds up and makes sense!
I only listened to this book because I couldn’t find anything else in the VIP books that caught my attention and the reviews were positive. So glad I didn’t miss it!!! I couldn’t stop listening, wondering how it could possibly end. I’m ready to hear the next three books!!!
this was an excellent book and I loved it. I've always been interested in time travel. my only question is not that I'm trying to spoil alert this but what happened to his counterpart? the narrator did an excellent job.
Excellent, well observed and written story and beautifully read. Was delighted to find it is the first of a series, so will definitely be reading more from these two
Excellent Narration and Intriguing Story Line. It was a VIP selection and I am now looking into some of the author's other books. I kept trying to guess the ending but I just didn't call it which is more fun for me to not have any clue where it was going. Loved it!
Quite enjoyable. I find this genre addicting. Just enough “ magic” to make one revisit their past for wisdom
Loved this book. I was hooked from the start. Once I finished reading, I couldn't wait to start the next book in the series.
Not at all what I expected - more of a fantastic / supernatural premise. I got a bit bored halfway, put it down for a while, but then finished the 2nd half all at once. A little emotional, a little bittersweet, a little exciting. Narrator did a nice job.
Very good, like a Jules Verne story !
A great story filled with catchy moments that turn the plot. Characters were likeable and easily understood. The narrator did a great job and I enjoyed his approach although felt his accent didn’t match the setting of the uk.
It was a good decision to offer this book as the free VIP selection. I was hooked almost from the start. It was a very creative story with likable, well-defined characters. I just bought the second book in the series and plan to read them all. The reader is good, even if his female voices are a little weak. But overall it’s a fantastic listen that I would highly recommend!
love a time travel book
I echo Christine P's review. We weren't sure what we had when I picked this as a VIP Reward, but it hooked both my wife and me and kept us listening.
We are looking forward to the next book in the series, and the reader!
I was surprised by this story line. Not what I expected, but I enjoyed it very much.
Starts off slow and sad but it gets really good. One of the best series of books
I can’t get past the American narrator for a protagonist who is supposed to be British. What are they thinking? He does a good British accent for other characters so he just should have done the entire book with the pretend accent. It makes zero sense to me
I was pleasantly surprised. It was fun, well narrated (I am not a native English speaker) and I downloaded the second book in the series already!
Loved this book
Same as everyone else it seems! Didn't expect such a gem in the VIP books, LOVED the narrator, great story, couldn't tell the end until I reached it, laughed out loud a few times, couldn't put it down but also didn't want it to end! Recommend it for sure, most likely will buy #2 in the series too!
I downloaded this book as a monthly reward, and did not regret it! This is a nicely written and narrated book. It’s the first in a series, and I’m definitely planning to read on!
Very unusual. A definite must read. Time traveling
Even though I am not one for time-travel genres, this was a great story line! Kept me interested and listening constantly. What I was not so fond of was the narrator. The story takes place in England so I would have expected an English accented narrator which would have made my listening experience more enjoyable. His voice seemed a bit flat, or monotone, for my taste.
Very good book , narrator did a really good job..
Very interesting book. Time traveling has always interested me, and this story brings new things to consider. enjoyed
Incredibly likable characters and the plot was fresh and full of twists
loved it, so many unexpected twists. looking forward to the rest of the series
Wonderful narrator reading a pretty bad story. I only finished it as the narrators voice is so good.
The narrator is the best I've heard. Love his narration. The story is questionable? Several times I wanted to quit. But I'm glad to have stuck it out. The ending is worth it. One major disappointment, but I'm not going to spoil the story for you by telling you what it is.
Good book. Character was believable and story interest was good. The narrator did a great job.
This was a great read/listen. Brother takes younger sister to a carnival. Suddenly she disappears, Joe and his family are destroyed by the mystery.
When Joe discovers he can time travel (jump), he becomes determined to go back and rescue his beloved sister. There is nothing easy, but with friends and determination he keeps learning and trying.
There will be more books in the series.
