2052 is a fast-paced, action-packed, heart-wrenching thriller. Eddie Upnick's characters are his greatest strength, as the reader feels attached to all of them. This is the final book in the trilogy. Time Will Tell & Future Tense are the first two books in the series. 2052 ties all three books together in a fascinating way. The beginning of the series saw the rebel scientists from a dystopian future travel back from 2133 to 1938 to attempt to change the outcome of World War Two in Time Will Tell. In the next installment, Future Tense, the youngest son of Clem Rizzoli (a protagonist from TWT), Vito, tried to tie up the loose ends his father had left behind some 20 years earlier.
This amazing final chapter, titled 2052, has Vito and Victoria (the daughter of the time traveler) and their supernaturally gifted children tring to save the world from threats from outer space. Get lost in this reality-based science fiction story, which is pure escapism at it's best.
A lot of events packed into one book. Sometimes more background information would have been good. Good narrator though.
this was the first book I ever got form audible and it was the greatest story ever kind got lost in the middle but me and my family were on a road trip and so we listened to the whole thing over the few day of the trip. then cam to realize it was the last of a trilogy. since then we have bought the other two book and they are just as amazing as 2052 if you like sci-fi, cursing, and family this is your book, just give it a try you won't be disappointed
Would you consider the audio edition of 2052 to be better than the print version?
Both were great.
What other book might you compare 2052 to and why?
Future Tense, same fast paced, can't stop listening enjoyment.
What about David Doersch’s performance did you like?
David was great reading various accents for the many characters.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
many...but when the Earth was facing total destruction, the family heartbreaking choices left me tearing up,
Any additional comments?
Great listen, truly.
