Fun, quick listen with interesting characters and an interesting story.

Couple things - narration was sub par (accents were painful) and I felt some of the time travel aspects could've been explored further

Good thriller

Enjoyed it, especially the deliberately slightly far fetched nature and fun twists. Looking forward to the author's next book!

Stunned that this has so many positive reviews - sounded like an interesting thriller and despite the generic premise assumed there would be something different about it.

Wow, was I wrong! Everything about it was unbelievably unimaginative - I kept waiting for something interesting to happen.

Didn't help either that it felt like it was being read by Siri.

Also, way too many characters, I had to keep trying to remember who they actually were.

Another fantastic, tightly plotted and incredibly well paced thriller. I would say more but recommend you going in blind as possible. Can't wait for another book

Enjoyable but rushed ending

Enjoyed this as a standard trashy thriller, then all of a sudden the ending came about a bit too quickly and I'm not convinced how resolved everything was...

Perfectly serviceable thriller

The premise ended up being more interesting than the story itself. Characters were fine but felt like there were a few too many and at times slightly difficult to keep track of who's who.

Long, engrossing and rewarding

Absolutely loved this book. Thought the first in the series was good but this was better. Incredibly well narrated and fantastic characters and story!

This book sounded really interesting, but in reality was a poor thriller with twists that were visible a mile off and some terribly written characters / dialogue

As the previous reviewer stated there is an error in chapter 13 (about halfway through) that actually spoils the book's ending. It has now been reported. I was really enjoying the book until this point and will get hold of a paper copy to finish it.

Enjoyed the book - but silly ending

Really enjoyed this for the majority - however found it went a bit off the rails by the end.

Thought the performance was very strong and it didn't fall for the curse of most modern thrillers where the story gets overly complicated
