"I find this audio book very engaging and it is easy to just listen in on the story and let the time fly past. The story is about a young man who have learned to stop time and use this ability to gain a great place in stock trade. As he learns of others with this gift, he takes it upon himself to find them and learn more about what it means to be able to do what he can do. Before he knows it he is in the middle of a conflict of "Readers" and Pushers" and with a light crush on the lovely mysterious Mira.

The book is very well written and then narrated by Roberto Scarlato and it is very easy to see the different characters he depict with his voice before your inner eye so to speak. I gladly recommend listening to this artwork."

Would you consider the audio edition of The Time Stopper to be better than the print version?

I found this to be well narrated and gritty short story very suitable for the audio format, the only thing I can complain about is the length, I would have wanted more.

What other book might you compare The Time Stopper to and why?

I think I like to compare this to William Gibson's "Johnny Mnemonic" both being short stories with a main character in a gritty future and with problems with mobsters.

Which character – as performed by Laura Jennings – was your favorite?

I liked Mira, but her mobster counterpart Victor was a very interesting character that may turn out to be something special in the later books (I have no knowledge about the later books yet)

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

Yes, and it was no problem doing so as it was just 1 hour and 24 min.

Any additional comments?

The language was a bit brutal at times but it added to the gritty feel.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sorcery Code: Volume 1 to be better than the print version?

I would consider the audio version just as good as the print version, really liking the narrators use of her voice to convey different characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sorcery Code: Volume 1?

Most probably the events starting at the Colosseum and ending in the aftermath of the fight against the soldiers.

Which scene was your favorite?

That would be the scene where Gala meets the soldiers outside the inn.

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

High magic and Intrigue!

Any additional comments?

I really liked this fantasy story about the couple Blaise and Gala and the other two main characters Augusta and Barson in this tale of magic, danger and intrigue. The way the magic is made to work in this world is very much making me think of the sorcerers as programmers manipulating matter instead of software, and this to me is a very fresh and new way of depicting magic in novels and gives the authors lots of ways to make the story full of both obstacles and advantages for the characters. For a big part of the story I couldn’t figure out what would happen next as there was so many possible ways that the characters could act and still feel real and true to their personal agendas.
