This book is good up to a point. Just because the protagonist jumps back in time, I don't know why the author felt that that also meant that the backstory had to be continually repeated. It got quite boring. It's as if this book is taking place in real time, so it has to take 13 hours to listen to it. I finally gave up (on CD 7) and skipped to the last CD. The ending was gripping - if only it had come sooner!!
Intriguing and suspenseful!
I liked this book...True towards the end it started to drag and i was so tempted to skip ahead... but I didn't and I glad i didn't...
I enjoyed the twist on time travel in this novel. Well worth listening to. The narrator was enjoyable and the author did a magnificent job of painting the scenes so that I could clearly imagine what was happening.
I found myself holding my breath at the very end!
My husband finished the book before I did simply because he could not turn it off and go to bed.
Get this one, you won't regret it!
Warning: do not listen to this audio book on a long flight like I did--the gruesome airliner crash scenes may cause in-flight paranoia. Nevertheless, here are 13 themes in this suspense novel that will keep you listening for 11 hours: 1) interesting backwards chronology, 2) time travel, 3) manipulating the future, 4) justice and revenge, 5) family secrets, 6) dirty cops, 7) former Soviet Union mobsters, 8) airplane disasters, 9) hidden treasures, 10) high stakes finance, 11) heros verses villians, 12) true love, and 13) likeable good guys verses despicable bad guys!
What a great story!! I was glued from start to finish. I look for more books from this author!
This book is everything the overview says it is! The backward chronology is only a little confusing for a short time but then you can understand how time proceeds. The author is unusually creative with this device and it works well. Now that I've listened to it once, I want to hear it again, just to be sure I caught everything he offers.
Takes a great leap in the credibility department. Time travel is one thing but this seems to be way out there and explanations are few.
However, the story is well written keeping you on the edge all the time. The question of whether we could actually improve our lives if we could turn back time has been addressed many times and here is another.
