Publisher's Summary

Run from the past. Run from the future. Run for your lives.

He's a novice time traveler in a big universe.

Ben just wants time with the scientist's daughter who got him into this, but when he's rooked into competing in a chronothon - an Amazing Race through time - getting the girl means he'll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving. To save the people he loves, he'll have to conquer the real dangers hidden in the shadows of the chronothon.

The world of time travelers expands in this next installment of the In Times Like These series. Fans of book one will find more to love, but new listeners can jump right in and enjoy this stand-alone story. Expect action, adventure, and romance on this journey through past and future. Fresh dangers will arise for Ben and company in a quest for the finish line, where failure to keep up will cost more than just a shot at glory - it could mean the end for them all.

    Story
    "Book 2 of a series"

    Very well and written and narrated. However, this is the second book of a series and I didn't know that when I listened. The book refers to previous events from the first book that takes one out of the story. The protagonist also begins the story with a good knowledge of time travel and relationships formed in the first book. Only the second book is available on Audible

    Story
    "this wasn't a good book, it was an awesome one"

    let me explain you why is this book in my opinion "awesome"

    -it exploits time travel in a brilliant, intelligent and interesting way.
    -it explains everything (theories, bases, places, situations, feelings) in a perfectly understandable way, as well as subtle.
    -it makes a mix of adventure / science fiction / love / scary / fast phased story
    -it makes it impossible to stop reading / listening to the story
    -it makes every situation and every achievement real or possible to happen
    -it hides a few in between the lines jokes that will definitely make you laugh
    -it creates realistic and complex places, well detailed and easily imaginable
    -characters are well built
    -even dough this is the second book, its perfectly understandable and enjoyable without reading the first book
    -most of the futuristic inventions that appear in this book are actually projects being developed nowadays
    -the principal characters are mostly in their twentysomthigs but this definitely doesn't mean it can be enjoyed by a younger older audience.
    -it will leave you wanting for more
    -it concludes the story completely, but beautifully connects with the next book


    3rd book is coming out in a few months or it has already out, depending on when you read this, so you won't have to wait long to know what happens next

    hope this helps, and hope you buy this book, we need more authors as great as Nathan Van Coops

    "Started slow"

    I didn't think I was going to be able to get into this, but by the last third, I was sitting in the driveway not wanting to turn it off. Recommended.

    "Great adventure!"

    Great adventure. Some humor, some romance and lots of action for everyone. I accidentally bought this one first. Now I'll be looking for the first in the series to see what I missed.

    I'm 60 & I enjoyed it. Bare hints of sex. I didn't find it extremely confusing. Good story, good narration.

    "I totally enjoyed the book."

    I will definitely keep an eye out for more books from this author. For me, it was the kind of book you do not want to stop listening too.

    "Amazing story but be warned.."
    What did you like best about this story?

    Time Travel perfection! Brilliantly executed story with great characters. A real 'page' turner.


    Any additional comments?

    Please be warned. This is the second book in the series. I have no idea why Audible would put up book 2 without book 1. It can stand on its own but the magnitude of what happens in this book will likely detract from reading the start of the story if you go out of order.

    I didn't realize this until after I listened. Now I'll be going back to read the first one but with the knowledge of what happens to everyone in the end.

    Audible, please don't do this again and if you must, at least put up a warning that it is Book 2.

    "Great story"

    This was such a fun and entertaining story. Nathan you are awesome. I will now look at your other books. If you like time travel like myself get this book. If you don't you will still enjoy it. The narrator did a superb job. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

    "Compelling adventure story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm a big fan of the author, and loved The Chronothon when it was published as an ebook. It's very clever - a young man gets tricked into taking part in a deadly race through different periods in time. The action follows him and his fellow competitors. Terrific action sequences and some clever sub-plots.

    The narrator is absolutely perfect for this novel - a great voice,and he reads with at the right tempo inflection for every line in each scene. A very hard job, done exceptionally well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronothon?

    I really enjoy the extracts from Quickly's journal at the start of each chapter. There are some terrific action sequences, but also some clever sub-plots that play out really well.


    Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not familiar with the narrator's other work, but this one is excellent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for one sitting. Excellent value!


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it!
