Absolutely awful narrator .. as ever the story is wonderful as most Tj Klune books.. unfortunately it is ruined by the change of narrator. all the humour is lost.. unfortunately I am return I g this one as there's no way I can listen to it again

I decided on this following other reviews. it is droll and long winded and I keep having to rewind as I keep getting lost. it's all over the place.. Very boring.. I've managed about 5 chapters and given up.. Very boring

there is no way this is written by the same person that penned bear,otter and the kid. or the lightni g struck heart and there sequels..
nothing happens it just repeats over and over. it gets slightly interesting in the last chapter but fizzles to nothing in the end.. I realise the authors don't read these reviews as they don't really care about the people who buy there work,but really someone needs to tell him/her to be ashamed..

what can we say.. excellent as expected

Was a good final book.. as TJ himself says a good time to end. TO go further would spoil it .. this one is good as not only does it conclude but fills in a lot of gaps. I really enjoy TJ Klunes work.

Bit darker than last time

book one was very funny and have listened to it about 6 times. this is ok but less funny and the voices are slightly different and they seem to get a bit mixed up at times. the real upset is it ends in the middle. I didn't realise I would need to buy the next one to find out what happens.

very poor even by Kim fielding standard

got this one as KC Kelly is wonderful. I could listen to him all day.
I've got other titles by Kim fielding and they are not too bad , but this one is very poor. it never really gets going. maybe it could be cut down to a 30 minute yarn.
Oh and it seems I'm not allowed to return it!!!!
so much for the Audible return promise.

completely ruined by the change of narrater

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no.. the male narrater is rubbish..

What didn’t you like about Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ’s performance?

alex Jennings characters where awful. complete change from the first book. I do wish these money greedy companies would stop changing narrators during a series..

Do you think The Sins of the Father: Clifton Chronicles, Book 2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

it has a follow up but I will not be buying it as alex Jennings is the narrater

Any additional comments?

the first book was very good and the story in this one was as good, however the narration in this one is awful so I will go no further with this series.. shame really as I think the story will improve from book to book.. mr archer and whoever decides to try and save money by choosing cheap actors, should be ashamed of their underhand actions.. a pity neither of them care about the people that give them money

nicely narated

What made the experience of listening to Only Time Will Tell the most enjoyable?

the narrators really brought the characters to life

Who was your favorite character and why?

harry of course.. oh and old jack..

What about Roger Allam and Emilia Fox ’s performance did you like?

all the different characters stand out as individual

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

every time Harrys mother got knocked back ( spoiler.. it happens a lot)

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this audio book. and though was keen to get he next one in the series, I wish I hadn't bothered as yet again they have changed the male narrator and it is awful. I shall get no more. (see my views on 'sins of the fathers'

very disappointed

having listing to the main 4 in this series and enjoyed them, I thought I would try this to fill in the gaps . I have to say it was very poor .. very short therefore over priced
