    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "A bit confusing"
    Overall

    The story is engaging but this might be better read from a book. Two narrators were used and each one reads both the male and female parts. This was confusing because the story is complex and the characters voices and in essence their demeanor, kept changing throughout. The slow easy masculine voice of Henry read by William Hope is replaced by a nervous, edgy and faster speaking Henry as read by Laurel Lefkow. Ms Lefkow's male and female voices were hard to discern in some places, making the story difficult to follow. All in all this book made it really apparent just how much the narrator can infuse character into a story. I suppose choosing the narrator is almost as important as the story you choose to read. If you want a truly good Audiobook try one of Steig Larson's.

    From the author of the New York Times best-selling novel Labyrinth comes another haunting tale of double crosses, murder, and the occult set in both 19th and 21st century France.

    Molly says: "Too many subplots"
    "predictable"
    Overall

    This book was less entertaining than the Labyrinth, but still somewhat fun to read in the beginning. My biggest complaint is all the build up to a mystery ending that never happens - there are not any twists. Also the sex scene is so clumsily written that I wished I could have skipped through it. Don't waste your time.
