    "I don't understand how people feel ripped off"

    If a book, or short story in this case, costs less than $2 and you used a credit on it instead of just purchasing it you are a moron no matter how good or bad it is since credits cost more than $2. If a book costs less than a credit you should always purchase it instead of using a credit. Also, it clearly states that it is a short story, so again, if you feel ripped off you are a moron. People are always looking for someone else to blame for their own stupidity.

    "Scott Brick is incredible, as always"

    The ending to the story is somewhat foreseeable, but Scott Brick a tour de force! He was one of the first narrators I ever heard in Audible, and I still think he is among the greats! His reading is so superb, he actually makes the story better than it might have been. He is completely believable as the character.

    "Sharp little short story."

    I enjoyed it. I got to the end thinking I must have missed something that would have given away the twist. I am going to go back and listen again to see if I can pick up on it earlier! Worth your time.

    "Wonderful Short Story"

    This is how a short story should be written. Great plot and amazing storytelling. David Baldacci and Scott Brick make a wonderful team.

    "Surprising expected ending"
    Where does No Time Left rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story started out really well. Once the time travel condrum was played out the ending was, well predictable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Blah


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First performance I heard and it was fine.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Go back in time and kill it.

    "Good read, too short"
    Where does No Time Left rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not # one, but still a good listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Time Left?

    I can't say without ruining the book for others, but it was great


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Becker


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when he was explaining how he wanted to be able to blow smoke rings like his father, it was funny to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I know this review is sort of vague, but with this being a short story, it's kind of hard to comment on it without ruining it for possible buyers. It is a very good book though.

    "Confused"

    I just finished listening to this audiobook and find myself confused. I would describe the actual book to be a fair to middling short story more equatable to Stephen King than David Baldacci in content with a predictable ending that was only redeemed by Scott Brick's usual stellar narration. I am confused by the timing of the release and its intention. The plot of the story seems to clearly indicate that it was written over ten years ago and yet its maketed as something new with a copywrite of 2011. Second, while I paid the cash price which was fair for the contentent, I like others would have been upset if I had used up a precious credit instead. I question the intent of Audibles marketing in this regard.

    "Intriguing plot"

    A great listen while on your way to work. So much drama squeezed into this short story with Baldacci's talent for great story-telling.

    "a tad short and predictable, but well written"

    This is a VERY short story. That's okay; I guess authors don't have to make every idea into 16 hours of listening. Maybe it's that they get these "what if" ideas, and it's a wise author who recognizes that the idea is not worth a full book.

    So as not to give anything away, let me just say that I had the story figured out at the moment the strange thing happened to the protagonist. But knowing the end doesn't always ruin the story. After all, we know the end of Romeo and Juliet, and Titanic, and yet we still go to see the movie, or read the book. The tale is in the telling, as has been said. And Baldacci is a story teller. I think it could have been fleshed out a bit more, because it ends a bit abruptly. I would like to know more, perhaps more stories, about the mysterious secondary character. But then again, I picture it as an oral tale by a fireplace on a cold and stormy night. It should work really well there.

    The narration is okay. There's not really enough there for a true reader to sink his teeth into. Maybe Orson Welles or Keith Szarabajka (Heft) would give it the tension it deserves.

    It's a fine little piece, but not worth a credit, maybe not more than $2, but it should make a good addition to a collection of similar tales.
