Great Short Story with a twist

Really enjoyed listening to this short story which made you think about what you would do if you were in Jacob's position. The narrator read the book well and managed to build up suspense as Jacob went on his mission to save the world. Would certainly recommend.

very descriptive but not really my cup of tea.

I felt the story itself was somewhat flat despite the author's excellent descriptive abilities. Finished in one sitting. I didn't HATE the book, but I feel it could have been a lot ... More...

The narrator's performance was excellent - this is the second book i've listened to by this narrator, and I can't wait to listen to more of his performances.

An interesting short story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Book

The story though short is quite interesting, not super scary if you like this genre but a good virus tale with some nice twists a bit of action and a fun story.

The Production

The narration was clear and generally well done, sometimes things were a bit overemphasised for dramatic effect but this was only a couple of times at the beginning and was done well later when the action started kicking in.

It was good story

I think it was overall okay but nothing really moved me or made me feel overjoyed or excited about but at times there were some parts I did feel really interested in and wanted to know what might happen next. The narrator was not my personal favorite and I personally would have chosen a different narrator maybe someone who didn’t have a British accent and I think that it had a lot of potential and still is enjoyable to listen to for some . It was definitely a decent audiobook and would say it’s worth listening to ;)

not horrible

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The narration is well done but I was a bit underwhelmed by the story. The author is very descriptive but the story just felt... unfinished to me. At 1 hour, it could definitely have been much longer and had more of an impact.

The story did not live up to it's hype.

The story was ok, but not explosive. The story is about guy wakes from a coma hearing voices from the future. He then follows the voices. What follows is pure whiny stupidity.
