    This is a captivating, good-humored look at family life in a small farming community in Indiana in the early 1900s.

    F. Girlando says: "My Favorite Book Growing Up!"
    "I will try again."
    Overall

    I have tried several times to start this book, but was so put off by the narrator that I quickly moved on to something eles. I came back to Audible to see why in the world I had pick this book. The one review I see here has inspired me to give the book one more try. There is obviously a gem here hidden behind the narration. I will let you know if I am sucessful.

    Gideon Crew, brilliant scientist, master thief, is living on borrowed time. When his mysterious employer, Eli Glinn, gives him an eyebrow-raising mission, he has no reason to refuse. Gideon's task: steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City and protected by unbreakable security. Accomplishing the impossible, Gideon steals the parchment - only to learn that hidden beneath the gorgeously illuminated image is a treasure map dating back to the time of the ancient Greeks.

    It started off slow and built to a huge storm with love and adventure from any unusual direction. The narration was pleasant to listen to and did not annoy me through hours off listening. I usually listen while walking the dogs. They got more walks than ever as a result of this exciting book.

    A scientific experiment begins, and as the button is pressed, the unexpected occurs: everyone in the world goes to sleep for a few moments while everyone's consciousness is catapulted more than twenty years into the future. At the end of those moments, when the world reawakens, all human life is transformed by foreknowledge.

    Phelix_da_Kat says: "How would you digest the fruits of knowledge??"
    "Wished it had never ended."
    Overall

    This is one of those books that you want to never end. Keeps your attention to the very end.
