Publisher's Summary

The second book in the bestselling Chronicles of St Mary's series which follows a group of tea-soaked disaster magnets as they hurtle their way around History. If you love Jasper Fforde or Ben Aaronovitch, you won't be able to resist Jodi Taylor.

Wherever the historians go, chaos is sure to follow....

Dispatched to Victorian London to seek out Jack the Ripper, things go badly wrong when he finds the St Mary's historians first. Stalked through the fog-shrouded streets of Whitechapel, Max is soon running for her life. Again.

And that's just the start. Max finds herself in a race against time when an old enemy is intent on destroying St Mary's. An enemy willing, if necessary, to destroy History itself.

From the Hanging Gardens of Nineveh to the murder of Thomas a Becket, via an unscheduled dodo rescue mission, join the historians of St Mary's as they hurtle around History on more hilarious, hair-raising escapades.

Enjoyed This Second St Mary's Time Travel Book

After finishing the first book in this series I went ahead and bought the second. The second novel is a bit episodic, but because of the nature of potential time travel paradoxes the various plot lines all come together in a maddening but entertaining conclusion.

Based in the near future UK, St Mary's Time Travel institution, has a number of traditions, one of which is that a Historian (time traveling variety) gets to choose his or her last jump into the past before their retirement. In this case Maxwell, with her friend Kal Black, have set out to visit the London of Jack the Ripper on the night that Mary Kelly is mutilated and killed. Black is retiring from active duty. That night has a most surprising conclusion. But it's not by any means the conclusion of the book.

It's not a soft and fluffy book although at points I thought it was quite funny. It also has some pathos (that's where one star disappeared because I thought that particular character was a bit of a red shirt, although the author may redeem herself later considering how convoluted time travel plots can be.) There is also some sheer horror.

The narrator is, as I thought with regard to the first book, excellent. I'm hoping that she will also be reading the third book when it comes out on Audible.

I did wonder if the dodo birds were a nod to Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next novels.

I also bought the third novel on Kindle although it was not yet out on Audible. I would definitely suggest that these books be read in order. Now I'm jonesing for the fourth book.

Witty and fun

If you could sum up A Symphony of Echoes in three words, what would they be?

Fun time travel

Who was your favorite character and why?

Max of course. I love her sense of humor and wit. She's a lovable smart ass.

What about Zara Ramm’s performance did you like?

Yes, very much

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

Yes, but I did save the last hour for when I got home from work.

Any additional comments?

The author and narrator together tell a really entertaining story. The quick pace is a relief. We don't have to listen to tedious descriptions of a month long research team. It's just research this before we go on our mission, then... We jumped to the past.

Read this series! Delightful and original

Another fantastic book in the Chronicles of St. Mary's series! Max and the gang at St. Mary's get into all kinds of trouble again in book two. There's something special about this series that I just can't quite put my finger on. I love the richly drawn characters, the narration, the action, the absurdity and the humor. It's fresh and original and absolutely delightful. I enjoy every minute spent reading (or listening) to these books. Narrator Zara Ramm does an excellent job of bringing Max and these books to life. You can't go wrong whether you read them in print or listen to them on audio (or both, like I do). Read them in order or you won't do them justice, but definitely read them!

Trying to Wait Patiently for the Next One !!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I loved the twist on time travel and the eccentricities of St. Mary's. But probably the most remarkable is that the heroine is not hour glass shaped and has to work at being fit - as most of us do. She gets messy, panicked, makes mistakes and feels occasionally hopeless as we all do. But -- she has the chance to fix it. Give this series a listen to - or two... very entertaining as well as addicting!

A little disjointed, but satisfying

Zara Ramm is fantastic, and she kept me interested in a book that I might have gotten frustrated with otherwise. It's important to note that this is essentially three books (short ones) in one, brought together with no unifying plot line except casting. Characters in this book feel as though they're there on a timeline that was arranged by their managers, leaving halfway through the season for another gig or just making a guest appearance. The saving grace is that it is actually quite interesting - there are genuine moments of suspense and humor, and what history made it in was compelling and satisfying reading. I love discovering a series when I have more volumes to look forward to, and this was good enough that I'm excited to go on to the next book in the series.

this is where this series loses me

Up until this book, I had enjoyed this series. But I have lost all sympathy for the main character & all trust for the author. The character & narrative decisions made in this book was pretty appalling & horrid. This one has female characters treating Jack the Ripper like a curiosity to be experienced, no sympathy for the women he had brutally murdered. The cavalier attitude about the rape of women in history was kind of sickening as well.

Wonderful Narrator

Zara Ramm could read Webster's Dictionary and I'd happily listen. She has a warmth and lilt to her voice that are perfect for a book that has sardonic and whimsical undertones. Good thing too, this book needed some redeeming graces.

This is the second book in the series and relies heavily on the fact that the listener has already heard book one. Too much is left unexplained for this to be a standalone book. The storyline (as is true in the first book also) relies heavily on mini-episodes all strung loosely together in one overall plot. The two plot arcs (rocky romance and a rogue time traveler) come across as background frameworks from which the individual scenarios hang. Once you realize this and don't try to have one episode lead to or explain the next one, it's easier to relax and get into the book.

The heroine is definitely a mixed bag. She is an understanding and charismatic leader when put in charge. And then she becomes a churlish and destructive young woman when she's crossed by her would-be boyfriend. The two sides of her personality are so extreme that they were hard to reconcile.

I will get the next book in this series because Zara Ramm is just that good.

Great time travel sci fi

Would you listen to A Symphony of Echoes again? Why?

I'm sure I will. I'm going to read the whole series again, after I read the next two volumes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mrs. Partridge, aka History (Goddess of). She's one of those Deus ex machina characters that always shows up at the right time and does what you want her to do.

What does Zara Ramm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I haven't read the books in print, but I can't imagine anyone doing a better job with the narration.

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

Too many moments to pick one. The characters are even more interesting (and complicated) in this book than in the first one.

Any additional comments?

I love science fiction and particularly love time travel. This series is the best sci fi of this genre I have read in years and I read it all. Witty, sharp, laugh-out-loud funny. Great characters, wonderful concepts, well-executed.

Fast Paced Story with Humor

My favorite thing about this series is the protagonist - Max (a female). She is smart, fearless, and has a sense of humor. I like her a lot.

I also like the use of time travel to visit different eras. It keeps the stories interesting.
The author tells a briskly paced, complex story that includes some laugh out loud funny moments.

Zara Ramm's narration is excellent.

There are more books in this series and they are on my "Wish List".

I wanted fun time travel, got horror

I liked the first book enough to try this second book in the series. I liked the whole St. Mary's vibe, the characters, and the time travel. This book starts with a trip to see Jack the Ripper. Well Jack turns out to be some type of non-human fantastical creature of horror. The protagonist and a secondary character have a grizzly encounter with it, and it seems it cannot be killed. I don't know how long this story line goes on in this book, but I got tired of it real fast and stopped listening.

More entertainment

Some of my recent listens haven't had quite enough pace for me.... not so with this book. It cracks along at full tilt. So much going on that I got lost occasionally (I'm blaming my previous slower listens where I could let my attention wander without consequence. Nod off here, and you'll certainly miss something!)

This is pure entertainment from start to finish - even the car destruction scene made me grin.

I'm really enjoying the characters in this. And even learning a little about history too - I assume some of it is based on real occurrences....

Narration is exactly right.

Will be downloading the next instalment shortly.

Just Brilliant - What a Ride!

Got this in a 2 for 1 sale & what a bargain it was. I listened to it in a day & straight away bought the next one. Cannot praise this series enough. If you like Sci - Fi with humour this is for you.

The very English very eccentric St Marys is a place I loved immediately, this is not Dr Who this is time travel with a whole new slant. I really don't want to spoil anything for anyone but one thing that struck me and I really liked was there wasn't the traditional beginning, middle & end of this story it goes, setting the scene, adventure, conclusion, adventure, conclusion and so on. I love the detail in the descriptions of everything, you really can imagine it.

The narrators voice is just right for the lead character and really brings it to life. Cannot recommend enough. Working my way through the series now and it gets better and better.

It keeps the worst from the first

The great performance and character voice persists from the first book.

That said: I cannot recommend it.

It was very disappointing to see every moment that gave me pause in the first book expanded into full-on disgust.

The opening nearly lost me with its misleading start, false suspense and premise that relies upon an utterly absurd level of stupidity.
But I really did enjoy the first book and I hoped there would be a return to form.

Things got hopeful and overall I enjoyed most of the middle section. There's a contrived break up which leads to one of the funniest scenes in the book but the lead-up and fallout did not make for good listening at all. (A lot of sighing and asking "really?" to an empty room.) But oh well, I wasn't a fan of the romance in the first book anyways.

Then it gets worse.
Your mileage will vary on this matter.

In the first book, she discovers someone she trusted intended to sexually assault and murder her (candidly described as having a shag and tossing her out -- but Max is a VERY candid character). She's rather forgiving about the matter, but those around her aren't. It does help that he died horribly and she knew that grief before the betrayal. Really muddies the emotional waters. There's still a disconnect there, but it's not unrealistic so to speak. You can see her unhealthy thought process, and it's fortunately challenged by those close to her.

Max fends off both the first and a second (different man) assault attempt with aplomb and both are treated as a fairly comedic shutdown at the time.

Now. Book 2. Slight spoilers, but I'm miffed enough to not care.
She literally walks into a stranger - a man of historical import - and he immediately tries to have his way with her. As the narrator, Max muses on how he has "careless charm", is "rakish" and "can't help himself" and that women must throw themselves at him. All this as he tries to get at her tits, ignoring her "no"s. Really?
I know the 1st book considered being tossed over a bonnet romantic, but really?!
Anyways, the book really tries to have its cake and eat it with this one. She extracts herself from the room with the excuse of getting wine -- after such things as him pulling her legs out from under her so she can't leave is treated with the book's usual humour ("one of his best moves" or something to that effect - the point being he was clearly practiced at it) despite the fact that it's... not a funny situation at all. "Gosh, this is dangerous for women!" and off she trots.

The tonal dissonance could leave you spinning.

Max forms a plan and is, now, fully aware of how dangerous of he is and that he's a threat. The tone changes gear at a whiplash speed... fast enough to wonder why it didn't do that earlier.
She completes her mission by shoving another woman into the room and locking the door. History: corrected.
Max thinks on how this was "the worst thing a woman could do to another woman" and feels rightfully bad about the whole thing as she apologises to the reader.
Her own beau, Farrel, comforts her, within an hour of the event, with such gems as:
"she could of screamed for help, or denounced him, but she didn't"
"She made bad decisions"
"Besides, she was no innocent"
And Max herself wonders if the woman kept the event secret "out of shame or because he'd been a monumentally good shag".
👎👎👎👎👎👎
Farrel then asks Max out on a date. What. A. Charmer.
They have a laugh about their antics from much earlier in the story, and the chapter closes - a short time later - with him asking about her encounter/relationship with the rapist (even the book calls him one) in a very jokey, wink wink fashion.

Wot??

The worst part is that although it's distasteful as a plot point, I'm not utterly opposed to it. There's some screwy morals in there that could be explored and give very good reason for strife between characters, but from the delivery to the reception to the general lack of consequences (she "got over it, of course"), it's *just* distasteful.

This all happens in the last hour of the book, which is why this review is so... incensed, I suppose. Certainly disappointed.
I regret not checking reviews before jumping into this one from the back of the first!

And then the epilogue hints that the next book will be much more in line with what I was hoping for from this one. Sigh. Not falling for that again, thanks.

I will not be continuing this series.
...But I would check out other ones read by Zara Ramm.

Better than the first book

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this - the story, writing and narration was better than the first book, which had a good premise but flagged a little for me. Just enough to encourage me to get the second and I am glad I did! In fact I actually went straight to get the third after reading the second...
I've grown to quite like the way the story seems to be in episode format as it means when very tired and busy I don't have to concentrate on a long, complicated storyline - there is an ongoing story with decent character development but the characters have various adventures within this, that are quite self-contained, so easy to follow.
Gentle, enjoyable entertainment, with no saucy bits in this one - hurray.

A darker St Mary's emerges

The first book in The Chronicles of St Mary's, "Just One Damn Thing After Another" was a triumph of originality, introducing us to the world of intrepid, if chaotic, British historians risking their lives to witness past events first hand.

Chronologically, "A Symphony of Echoes" carries straight on from where the first book left off but the tone of the second book is quite different and, sadly, not quite as satisfying.

This is a darker book than its predecessor. There is less games-playing and amusingly clever trickery and more killing and death.

In this novel, Max, the plucky if unstable woman the first book followed from Trainee to Historian, has become part of management and shows an allegiance to St. Mary's that borders on the fanatical. Under her leadership it becomes clear that although St. Mary's appears to be an institution filled with eccentric individuals who muddle through while creating madcap mayhem, it is actually capable of being ruthless, even murderous. Its enemies are hacked to pieces, shot in the back, abducted and executed. It is even willing to go to great lengths to throw a woman in harms way to ensure that the "right" historical path, the one that protects St. Mary's, is taken.

I found myself thinking that this was a St Mary's that I would not be inclined to support.

"A Symphony of Echoes" shares many of the same strengths as its predecessor: it is witty, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and it is depicts bravery and loyalty in a way that made me want to be brave and loyal. Whereas the first book read as a novel, with a beginning, a middle and an end, this book abandons that structure and is the worse for it. "A Symphony of Echoes" is literally a chronicle, a record of important events in the order in which they occurred. It is a picaresque piece, following whatever happens to Max, without imposing any deeper narrative thrust or emotional or intellectual leitmotiv. While each episode was well described, I found the lack of unity frustrating.

I also found that some of emotional trauma Max was pushes through seemed contrived and distorted.

"A Symphony of Echoes" is still a good read, but unless the third book returns closer to the form of the first, "The Chronicles of St. Mary's" and I will part company.

By the way, the title refers to another definition of history: "History is a symphony of echoes heard and unheard. It is a poem with events as verses. Charles Angoff"

I'm hoping that this novel has some echoes I haven't heard yet and which the third book will make clear.

And the world went white


The second part builds on what we know and delivers some twists to history and the story of time travel as presented in The chronicles.

Max continues to attract more more danger and an enemy of St Mary’s is identified and begins to unravel plans and destiny.

Just when all was looking repetitive and predictable Jodi Taylor delivers a change of gear and you are of into a new old adventure.

Another winner

What made the experience of listening to A Symphony of Echoes the most enjoyable?

Unlike many other female narrators Zara Ramm is excellent. Her voice has an element of Bridget Jones diary but the story line is darker. Brilliant combination . I suspect if you liked the first book, you will love this sequel..if you haven't listened to it then give it a go. If you love history and sci fi this is the book for you

What did you like best about this story?

The Mary Stewart. Storyline

What about Zara Ramm’s performance did you like?

She has an excellent variety of oral characters

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

The end of Leon's car...You go girlfriend. Say no more

Any additional comments?

If you are a fan of the Peter Grant stories. Rivers of London ETC. This has a similar rhythm

What a shame

What would have made A Symphony of Echoes better?

This was a cracking idea which should have yielded a rich seam of fantasy writing. Unfortunately, the whole thing was extremely adolescent in its construction and the main character, who is supposed to be an independent woman with a PhD behaved like a fourteen year old American child with no control over their emotions. Sort of Twilight meets time travel.As a woman with a PhD myself, I really was hoping for a bit more sophistication. I foolishly bought both audio books on the strength of the introductions and am now very sorry

Has A Symphony of Echoes put you off other books in this genre?

No, but I shall not make the same mistake of believing the blurb too much.

What didn’t you like about Zara Ramm’s performance?

See the text of the first box

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, I had been looking for a thumping good story, not the diary of a hormonal teenager

Any additional comments?

great sequel

If you liked the first book in the series, then this is for you. If you haven't read the first one, get that one before you attempt this one. The narrator is spot on for this book and embodies the voice of Max just as I would imagine it. The book is a witty fast paced tale of the the time travelling hisorians of St Margarets that have to investigate history and occasionally set things right that have gone amiss in time. They have an arch enemy - Roman - a former member of staff who has gone bad to fight again, as per the first book. There is romance between the staff, humour, suspense, death, tragedy and ultimately a happy ending, all delivered with funny one liners and a quirky sense of humour. I preferred the first book, but this is a superb follow up.

Fantasy/Drama/Humour/History. This has it all!

Bizarrely, (I am from the UK), I heard about this series off a friend in the USA, even though it is a British author and novel.

I wasn't disappointed by the recommendation. This has everything, fantasy, drama, humour all wrapped around history. That just about ticks all my boxes of things that I enjoy in a book.

If you're not too keen on history you might find the passages that deal with important historical periods a bit overbearing. However, give it a try because that aside, the drama, fantasy and humour shines through. Personally I love history, and that love stems from our mother who was a font of knowledge when it came to all things history. It brought up many happy memories, a job well done.

The narrator also does a really good job, and it was a pleasure to listen through to the end.

If you're a fan of works from authors such as Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman then this should appeal. Although not quite the same in the sense that you don't have the fantasy animals or people, (this is based on time-travel for its fantasy), it is still well written.

I enjoyed the first book so much I immediately downloaded the second book in the series, and although the third book isn't available from Audible, I did download that to my Kindle to read. I hope the third book is added to the Audible catalog soon, because these are a series of books that work *really* well as audio books. In fact, they worked so well I didn't sleep until I had listened to both books back to back. I was slightly knackered by the end, but a very happy knackered.

A truly interesting concept

Read the first of the series and was impressed. This second book also delivers and delivers well. I love the performance. The narrator is spot on and really adds depth to the whole listening experience. Get this, I think you will really enjoy it.
