Summary

"A perfect blend of science fiction and alternate history" 

It's 1977. New York cab driver, Mike Redolfo, is abducted by aliens as a result of a mistaken identity and is now stranded on planet Vost. 

Back in 1944, World War II rages. The architect of the Holocaust, Heinrich Himmler, is about to order the execution of all concentration camp prisoners, while a mysterious man and his Jewish fiancée are fleeing Nazi occupied Prague. 

How are these two men linked? 

Unable to return to Earth, Redolfo manages to find a job. His taxi is modified for air travel and he starts work as a cab driver, ferrying the planet's diverse alien species around the capital city. His luck runs out again, however, as he unwittingly gets involved with a shady gang of alien criminals, and discovers to his horror that his actions have brought the planet to the brink of catastrophe. 

With millions of alien and human lives at stake, the link between the two timelines becomes clear. 

Determined to undo the harm he has done, Redolfo discovers secrets from the past that could hold the key to saving the planet."

Fantastic book

I really enjoyed this, there were times when I couldn’t stop listening because I needed to know what happened next. Made me laugh and cry. A really fun book mixing time travel and history. Loved it.

Cheerful Young Adult level sci-fi

This was not a good match for me, but probably will appeal to younger listeners. It is not-layered, although there seems to be 3 concurrent threads that will eventually meet and mesh later on. I still have 5.5 hours left to finish this book, but it's a DNF. I couldn't tell if it was the YA level of writing, or if the narration was over-acted to the point that this was similar to a cartoon, or maybe the narrator was doing the best they could with what they had to work with . . . when I realized I was spending more time trying to analyze what went wrong than listen to the book, I stopped and changed to another book. I never laughed once, so if there were supposed to be funny moments . . .
