    "Big Mistake"

    I made a big mistake when I bought this (it was on sale) before listening to the first book in this series, "1632." That book was only so-so and if I'd listened to it first, I would NOT have purchased this one.

    This one, "1633," was mind-numbingly dull most of the time. I enjoyed listening to about 10% of it (primarily the action scenes). The rest was torture because I was NOT interested in the boring descriptions and LONG, dull conversations. I almost quit MANY times, but then something briefly interesting would happen and I (foolishly) kept slogging on.

    I do NOT recommend this for anyone who is not fascinated by 17th Century European politics, military tactics, religions, culture and philosophy. If you're not a fan of the history, much of what is discussed will be of zero interest to you.

    Much of the "story" is actually thinly disguised lectures by the author about how society and politics SHOULD be.

    The plot was lacking, as well. Minor spoiler example: the Americans have an expert sniper. They had no problem in "1632" having her shoot enemy officers & leaders. Yet they ignore the obvious solution to virtually all of the problems they're facing in "1633" -- have her assassinate Cardinal Richelieu. It would be ridiculously easy, and save countless lives.

    The narration was excellent, but this was the worst story I've listened to.

    "the best time travel books"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 1633 to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is better than the print version because the reader pronounces all the place names properly for you. Now you can read other books in the series without fretting over some very foreign names.


    What other book might you compare 1633 to and why?

    Compare this book to most other time travel books and be happy because there are no whinning travelers worried about how blowing their nose might affect the world they came from. What a relief!


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    This reader is just great.


    Who was the most memorable character of 1633 and why?

    Cromwell was the most memorable character. I never thought of him in quite that way.
