I enjoyed 'The Lost Gate' much much more than this story, which was interesting, great characters, well narrated, a good way to pass the time, but just not quite enough 'there' was there for me to give it the full 4 stars.
I would read any sequel to this book, as this book sort of gives the impression of being the 'warm up' for a long series.
I think that having characters who can time-travel works against the dramatic pacing of any book and OSC comes as close as possible to making it work. I almost had the feeling like I was listening to the world's best, and longest shaggy dog tale.
Enjoyable, interesting, OSC working very well in small scale. Suitable for any age. Great for a car ride.
This is a very interesting book, however, it relys heavily on pictures, even devoting 2 chapters to visual esthetics and the brain. Difficult to follow without easy access to the pictures. I'm on a kindle, which I guess doesn't support pictures in audible, although I get pictures in my text books.
I think it's sort of a rip-off to get the audio without the pictures. I've tried looking around in 'My Library' for the 'accompanying reference material' but I can't find it. I do like the content of the book and would recommend it as a text book. The narration is good.
