Publisher's Summary

When Micajah Fenton discovers a crater in his front yard with a broken time glider in the bottom and a naked, virtual woman on his lawn, he delays his plans to kill himself. While helping repair the marooned time traveler's glider, Cager realizes it can return him to his past to correct a mistake that had haunted him his entire life. As payment for his help, the virtual creature living in the circuitry of the marooned glider, sends Cager back in time as his 10-year-old self, knowing everything he'd known at 80 and gives him access to advanced equations of space and time.

But living life over knowing the future isn't as easy as Cager has anticipated. His every action alters the future he remembers until much of what he remembers never happened at all. And those changes work against him at every turn, preventing him correcting the most serious mistake of his life. Now he must use his advanced mathematical ability to build his own time machine to go back and try again. But he needs a fortune even to begin.

Then he receives help from a strange young woman with no history. While perfecting time travel, Cager and his new partner overcome enormous problems, even being hunted by dinosaurs in the Cretaceous. After that, though, things get really bizarre.

    "Absolutely brilliant"

    Best book I’ve listened to in a long time. So very much more than a story about time travel. It got me from the first sentence and kept me listening to the last. It has everything you could want from a great story, love, humour, tragedy, intrigue, not to mention beautiful aliens. Oh yes, and some time travel of course. One I’ll listen to again.

    "Wonderful"

    Excellent book. I got it as an audiobook so I could listen to it during my 75 mile drive to work. I made the mistake of starting it at home and finishing it in a day.

    The narrator was good too. I like the way the narrator voiced Ell, abut like a female Hal.

    Lots of interesting turns, a story of redemption, clever situations, and humorous observations.

    "Six Stars"

    If audible allowed 3 books per year to have 6 Stars this would be one of my choices. Also the narrator knocked it out of the park.

    "Just Lovely...."

    While not a literary scholar, this is perhaps one of the top 5 Sci-fi and in particular time travel books ever. I am so glad I got this on audible as the narration is just spectacular. If you like time travel, then I urge you to get this book. You will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "The Gift of Time is a Gift!"

    I have struck gold with my last two audio books based around time travel. First there was ‘Fata Morgana’ and now there is ‘A Gift of Time’. Everything I said about Fata Morgana holds true with this one. The value for money just in terms of dollar per hour listening is excellent (over 11 hours long). The narration is excellent. I sped the narration up to 1.25x speed simply because I was so eager to listen to the story. However, what provides the greatest value is simply the story line! It is total amazballs as we aussies would say!

    The blurb does a good job at summarising a story which has more twist and turns than a cheap garden hose. I found myself constantly being surprised the development in the story. I liked how the author took some time to explain some of the problems with time travel… problems which other authors tend to ignore. Everything in the story just adds to the great character development. Not only was the character development great but Jerry Merritt just seemed to know how much tension I can handle in a story.

    I enjoyed this one immensely and I will be keeping an eye out for any other titles from the author.

    This fast fat man is giving this one the full works – Two thumbs up with a very big and long Fonzie ‘heeeeeeey’ with a smile that says ‘I am like a monkey with a new banana!’

    PS. I should mention that normal services will return shortly… I will return to reviewing zombie genre very soon.

    PPS. Some people have tracked me on the good old inter webs and asked if I receive free copies of the titles I review, or if I get paid for reviews. I can say beyond any shadow of doubt, the answer is no I have not. Some authors have offered, but I have said no.
