    New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint’s 1632 presented listeners with a fascinating alternate history of the Thirty Years’ War, through the eyes of a West Virginia community tossed back in time to 17th-century Germany. Here, Flint teams up with acclaimed science fiction author David Weber to continue his epic tale. In 1633, the West Virginians attempt to use their modern-day knowledge to build a resistance against the forces of France, Spain, and England.

    What did you love best about 1633?

    I've reread the core books in the series several times. I was thrilled when I saw that Audible had the first two. I hardly ever write reviews, but if there is a chance the rest of the series will show up on Audible, I vote Yes!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Having fun while learning a bit of history.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    The narrator did an awesome job with all the characters. If I had to choose one, I'd say Mike Stearns


    Who was the most memorable character of 1633 and why?

    Hans


    Any additional comments?

    I already know what happens next, but I'd like to hear it.

    If you could sum up The Magic Engineer in three words, what would they be?

    read the headline


    What other book might you compare The Magic Engineer to and why?

    great saga. The Soprano Sorceress comes to mind.


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    His characters are good. He is not annoying. Not having to think about the narrator is awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It made me want to listen to the next bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book many years ago and liked it. Listening to it was a renewed pleasure.
