Publisher's Summary

Welcome to '50sVille: The town you will absolutely love, or else...

Imagine a town where the people perpetually live in the 1950s, a place where time has all but stopped and where everyone loves his family, job, and life. In this strange place, only a select few people ever leave the city limits, and even then they leave reluctantly.

This is what 15-year old Benjamin Granault faces as, through a string of amazing events, he finds himself living in this town. A place where he can never talk about modern technology or current events, a place where being an outsider can cost a person his life and being part of the community may very well cost more.

Follow the adventures of Benjamin Granault in '50sVille, the strangest town Indiana has ever been unaware of.

Loved this series!

Ok, so I have to be honest. I totally tried this series hoping it would be similar to Fallout, being that the 50s theme is so prevalent. It wasn't at all what I expected, but in spite of this I loved it. The author does an amazing job of placing the reader in 50sville, so much so that I didn't want this series to end. I'm thrilled of how it ended, though, because all of my questions and loose ends were tied up.

The audio quality of the entire series was great. I don't understand why there were five different narrators, but each did this series justice.

I received this audiobook from the narrator/author/publisher in exchange for an honest review via Audiobook Boom.

Well Done!

This is the final installment to the series and is the best yet! I found myself actually getting irritated when I got interrupted. Anyway, this series is an entertaining listen. It doesn't have nonstop action and adventure from the beginning to the end. What it has is a quiet suspense and mystery that doesn't truly unravel until the end. The story starts with Ben visiting 50s Ville and ends with Ben visiting 50s Ville. All that happens in-between is something you'll have to get the series to know. Just know that it subtly pulls you in and keeps you until the last word is spoken. I truly enjoyed this series and found this installment quite engaging. This installment does have plenty of action, 'edge of your seat' suspense, mystery and heartwarming friendship. This book answers all the questions the other four brought up and leaves you with a good feeling about the ending. The narration was well done. The only complaint I have is that the voices could've been more distinct from each other. There is enough distinction to know a different character is speaking but it is not always immediate which one. Outside of that, the narration does bring the story to life and definitely makes the listening experience more enjoyable.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good read

My fifth read from Dr. Paul Ibbetson and the final booking the ‘50s ville quintet. Another enjoyable short read in the serial that has captivated my attention. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. Reminiscent of the early writings of Stephen King. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).
