the reader was excellent. the story started slowly, then captivated. action and romance kept interest. the ending read a surprise and fitting end.
No. The manner in which the lead character traveled back in time was silly. All the preparation in time and expense for one man to travel back in time and then to find that two women do with with no training, time or expense is ludicrous. They should have clued in and had women do it. Apparently, they can easily travel back and forth in time, if they just think about it.
Be consistent with the means for traveling in time.
No, but he was great.
No way. It stunk. The premise was unbelievable.
The premise was an interesting idea, but Finney should have followed his own rules and been consistent.
the stories whitin the main story
there were some heart touching moments for me.
the Oswald jfk stuff wasn't that interesting. it seemed obvious from the beginning that it would change to much in the future time line, and why it seemed so important in the first place was puzziling, because you have know way of knowing if it would lead to better thing or worse but you did know the change could be dramtic and unpreditable. so iwouldnt choose to take that chance.
I had a hard time getting started on this book. It seemed to meander in the beginning. But, like many great books, I couldn't make myself turn it off after it got hold of me! I am glad I listened. I didn't want it to end!
This book was extremely popular in New York back in 1969-ish. I was living there, and read it at least three times. I have loaned it to a number of friends, and at some point it didn't come back. So when I saw that it was available on Audible, I jumped at it. I thought the reader was excellent, and I enjoyed, all over again, experiencing "old New York" through this amazing story!
The story is wonderful. I read it because Stephen King said it was the best time travel book he had ever read. While the narrator's tone is even and calm, he does a great job of portraying action and tension.
The narrator seems to swallow quite audibly. It is amazing how often the sound of the swallow add to the story. After a while, it becomes quite comical
Cannot sit that long.
