I have enjoyed every book in this series cannot wait for the next one, the story is so exciting, you cannot stop listening, only one little down side sometimes she talks and explains too much, ๐Ÿคจ only sometimes.
These books are ok for young adults no swearing, but be aware there is one instant in this book and a few books ago there was another instance where it got a bit steamy!
But other than that it tame ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I can't wait for the next one just downloaded it!๐Ÿ‘
The narrator is fantastic even male voices, quick pace I couldn't put it down!
I love scifi, Like hunger games but a LOT less violent, apart from a little smooching quite tame if which I like about my Selection.

I would recommend this book to is for all ages starting with 13+, I could tell you the synopsis of this book however telling you why I liked it is better.
I love sci-fi this books, it ticked all the boxes for me, it was not filled with violence, nor swearing, the only swear words were, Poo-fire or poo now and again which is a rarity today.
The characters were endearing, it so well written, and narrator was brilliant he had a talent of giving you the right time to catch up and the the pace to keep you enthralled, you never wanted to put this down or stop listening to it, however you never wanted it to end.

But unlike some books when it did it was satisfying, I only wished that he had made it longer or into a series, on the other hand it maybe not had been so good.

This book will fondly stay with you, and no doubt you will read it again and again it's true for me!

It was a good second book, however there was an Irish character that spoiled it by swearing, Using the F word!
Other than that I enjoyed it I would not recommend it for children.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Book One in the TimeRiders series, read by Trevor White. Liam O'Connor should have died at sea in 1912. Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010. Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2029. Yet moments before death, someone mysteriously appeared and said, "Take my hand..." But Liam, Maddy and Sal aren't rescued. They are recruited by an agency that no one knows exists, with only one purpose - to fix broken history.

This book has a really good story to it and was very easy to listen to.
The characters were so well defined by the narrator and he really did a good job with all their accents.

I recommend this book both adults and kids age 12/13 as some bits are real but violence was kept in short bursts and not too explicit, there's no swearing that's a big decision when I read books, mind Liam says a lot of Mary mother of Jesus ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹

I am definitely going to read the other books as it was enthralling from the beginning! Give it a try! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

It was a really good third book I enjoyed it although it could have ended a little better or maybe have been a final book.

All the characters were brilliant, I liked El Captain the best, he struggled with his brother but when it came down to it El Captain wanted to be a better person.

I would recommend all three books it will captures anybody's intrigue and as I said I didn't want it to end!
