Summary

Will physicist Martin Riley get the rewards he feels he deserves? He's discovered a way to receive news stories from two weeks in the future but the Government has cloaked the technology in secrecy. Riley sees the danger in altering the Timestream but despite his warnings, politicians on both sides of the Atlantic make radical alterations to political events. The first temporal alteration saves Princess Diana, the next saves the Twin Towers, but ripples travel far ahead and disturb Earth's future civilisation. The Timestream must be realigned, but at what cost?

Kept me engaged in the mystery the whole time!

As someone very interested in these fringe topics, I always enjoy hearing about the details of things like time travel or futuristic tech, but what a refreshing read this book is when it comes to the relationship development and human issues covered throughout the book. Had me wanting to hear more and see where things went throughout the entire story and the audio book is read so well by Craig Bowles! A real pleasure to read/listen to!

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Lately sci-fi has become nothing other than an interesting premise that is never developed, and the whole story consists of a few people running from some group. They are chased from place to place to place...and then it's over. This is something refreshing. If you enjoy alternate universes, time travel, mysterious future beings and their technology...I can only recommend this book.

Chronoscope

Physicist Martin Riley discovers a way to send news stories back two weeks. He understands the need not to mess with history and what can happen if one does, but when different governments (UK and USA) make his discovery very secret and start telling Martin what can be changed and what won't be changed. What historic events will the governments decide to change and which ones will they let happen and will Martin ever get the recognition he deserves or will the governments slowly edge him out and take it over themselves? This was a wonderful audio narrated by the wonderful voice actor Craig Bowles. I loved the characters as they where both realistic and very believable. There is some action but the suspense is incalculable. This is so much more than your typical time travel novel it is more of the inception and early stages of just sending information not the sending people back in time kind of book, which I think makes it more believable and I liked it. I hope there are more to the series and we can follow what happens next.

Be sure to read the 'author's note' at the end!!

I love time travel books. I do believe that time travel is possible, but, not sure if it has happened just yet. That being said, I LOVED this concept of time travel...changing time. It became a bit 'out there' with the whole idea of saving memories and being in a new universe, of sorts, but, really...it is a book of fiction. Or is it? I listened to the audiobook version of this book and Craig Bowles did a fantastic job! I recommend this book!

Excellent book

I don’t know what I was expecting but this book was really good. The book offers a great premise to time travel and the dangers of it. I loved the major events of my lifetime were used as touchstones for anchor points for the story. This hooked me. I recommend this book highly.

Interesting premise

This is an interesting take on time travel. It’s implications are apparent and dramatic. It makes not-subtle political statements. It’s a bit controversial, so if you have strong feelings about the British monarchy or Islam, tread warily. Overall, a great sci fi time travel tale. I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a fair review

Fun, well paced story with listening to.

I enjoyed that. It was a fun listen. The story line is well paced and well organized. It didn’t take much suspension of belief to accept the “science”, which, to me, is a mark of a good sci-fi novel. Craig Bowles did a great job narrating, except for the not-so-good American accent. As an ex-pat from Lancashire, I cringe at Americans trying to do British accents. It was funny to hear it the other way round. All in all... top marks. I look forward to more.

Chronoscape by Roger Ley

The book itself seemed dated then I realized time travel, the author can write it any way that seems appropriate. it worked stunningly. I was keen on a few parts involving the future world and it left my mind building it further after the story ended. character build up of our Mr. Riley is good. as were the others. I had to question why include the woman with the drones at all. All in all it tied together quite nicely. Quite good from my point of listening. No sound effects and glitches in the listening experience. the narrator's voice, once your tuned in, is easy to follow for American ears.

Great story

This was a really well done story and I could easily see sequels to this book. I liked the “imagine if” at the end of the book.
