Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day
and I am richer for the experience. These travels back through time somewhat reminiscent of Weber's Safehold series are such an enlightening mix of history and science fiction. Nantucket citizens of the present are cast back 30 centuries into the past privileged to forge a brave new world. The characters are unexpected time travelers. Who would conceive of a black woman admiral in command of the Nantucket navy doing battle with the ancient Greeks and Egyptians led by one of the most evil characters ever brought to life in literature? I cheered her victories out loud. 75 hours of relentless interest. What a great series. Buy this and you won't be disappointed if you would love to change the past.
This third installment got quite a bit more tedious than the first two installments covering too much territory and too many battles as the characters got lost in the action. But I suppose it was difficult to avoid. I loved the first two books and merely enjoyed most of the third.
I loved this series when I read it in papareback and loved hearing the voices come alive even better. You will not be dissapointed, But you wil have to buy all three, LOL.
I ENJOYED THIS S.M. STIRLING BOOK, BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THE CHANGE SERIES, I STILL LISTEN TO IT AGAIN EVERY FEW MONTHS. LOVE THE ESCAPE FROM THESE WORRIED TIME IN WHICH WE LIVE
THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGING HISTORY
JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING
IS THERE EVER GOING TO BE AN END TO THE CHANGE SERIES SAGA?
I drive for a living and listen to a lot of books. I enjoy the long series of books because I go through them so quickly.
I have to agree with some other comments about these stories being a wee bit drawn out and some, um, slightly unusual characters. But I enjoyed them anyway. A good book should stretch your imagination a little bit.
I have always learned more about science from a well-contrived sci-fi book. The premise of this book and its following events lack any scientific foundation. Additionally, I had to restart the book because the events were poorly explained. The narration is good but the story jumps around too much without giving an indication as such.
I'm not sure how I'd classify this book, maybe marginal fantasy.
I don't recommend it.
