Publisher's Summary

When Robert Randall encounters a teenager during a blizzard, he quickly learns that her strangeness is only a foreshadowing of her impact on his life. Within minutes of meeting Kira, Robert is forced to kill, something he had sworn to never do again. With her pursuers hounding their every move, Robert must escort Kira through the endless doors that connect the universes, all the while trying to get back to Kira's dimension and rescue her mother from her captors.

Doors without end

This audio book is a fast-paced sci-fi fantasy full of action. It starts from the first page and doesn't slow down until the end.I thoroughly enjoyed listening .

Great stand alone sci-fi/fantasy story

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

This was definitely a good book. The narration wasn't the best, but not so much that it killed the experience for me. It was an interesting premise and had lots of action and some humor mixed in. Definitely worth the credit.

Good book. Narrator could be better.

Overall, I thought the story was interesting. There were times where it was a little hard to follow the timelines. I think part of the issue was the narrator. He seemed to only have one voice for any female character. I don't regret the time listening to it, but think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it.

From beginning to end, this one kept me interested

Loved the ideas of this story and the execution was well done. Characters were well developed and you kept learning about them till the end.
Would love to hear more.

Jim Rogers has a deep gravelly voice that by itself adds to the story. Unfortunately in this case it greatly aged the main character. It took me quite some time to figure out that the main character was in his 30's to early 40's mostly because that voice sounded so much older. I think he would make a great narrator but was not the best fit for this story. At the same time, that voice truly added to this story.

Overall I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a fast paced adventure with an ex-military man and a young girl as the main characters.

Terrific read

Very good book in gender. Funny situations with all the doppelgängers. I hope you enjoy as much as I did. I received this audible book for free. If I was supposed to give my honest review, that is exactly what I did.

Parallel worlds, doppelgangers, awesomeness!!!

Doors Without End: Alternatives
By: Richard A. Bamberg
Narrated by: Jim Rogers
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I loved this book! A loner writer who lost his wife recently saves a girl from a guy and finds himself in the middle of a mess of a life time. Parallel worlds, doppelgangers, people trying to kill him and steal the kid, and he finds people dying around him. Full of intrigue, adventure, sci-fi, and action. A fast paced book that keeps you jumping from world to world, awesomeness!
The narrator is absolutely perfect for this book. He goes from a deep gruff voice to a delicate girl's voice, lol. He keeps all the voices straight and there are plenty. Great job. He really helps the book! It made it more interesting than just me reading it. He made it more like a movie.

Definitely credit worthy!

Richard A. Bamberg is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is the 3rd book I've listened to by Bamberg and, while I thoroughly enjoyed all 3, "Doors Without End" is by far my favorite. I absolutely LOVED this book. It grabbed me from the very beginning and still hasn't let me go! The book is full of action and adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I couldn't put it down....finished in one day. Now, I'm sad it's over! Although this story was wrapped up by the end of the book, I would LOVE to hear more about and from these characters and their crazy worlds/timelines. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is the beginning of a new series......
My only complaint is the narration; and, while it isn't awful, it's not great, either. The female voices are a bit odd, sometimes a whisper, and there are a few mispronunciations. That said, it's bearable, and definitely not worth missing this great story!!!!
I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
I absolutely recommend this book!

Perfect Little Subtle Sci Fi

•audiobook•

"I was provided this audio book at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBoom dot com".

I can’t recall if I started this book three or four times before I was able to make it past the first chapter. But this afternoon, whilst watching the snow fall, it finally caught my interest and took me from world to world.

I really enjoyed the characters, the plot, the world(s) building, and the storytelling. The narrator did a fabulous job with this book!

The multi-universe was explained in bite sized morsels as the book progressed.

It was enjoyable and broke my cabin fever and frustration about how my unplowed road threw my plans off.

A pleasant surprise and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a taste of a subtler sci fi adventure.

Good story. Needs better narration.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

The book has a good story that keeps you interested. It's not one of those "can't put down" kind of books but good enough. The main two characters are well fleshed out. Most of the other characters felt pretty one dimensional though and lacked versatility.

The narration was the weak point of this book. The narrator's pacing and tone was mismatched with the pacing/mood of the chapters. Sometimes the delivery didn't match the scene being read. And the voices sounded almost same for different characters.

Alternate realities aplenty

This book takes an interesting approach to the mechanics and uses of travelling between alternate realities, turning it into a relatively simple procedure. However, that is really just the background for the story of an ex-military man turned author named Robert, who is struggling to keep going in the months following the death of his wife.

His life gets changed drastically when he saves a girl named Kira, he eventually learns about travel between dimensions and agrees to help her rescue her mother (inventor of dimension-hopping technology) from the people that were after Kira and want to exploit this tech for their own dimension's gain.

There were some plot points that seemed a little too clearly signposted from the start, but other revelations were less obvious and whether you spotted any of them or not didn't detract from my overall impression of the story.

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the performance of the narrator as much as some I have heard, he sounded too old for how I pictured the main character and his secondary characters probably didn't stand out enough either. However, his delivery was clear and while the performance didn't enhance the book for me, it didn't detract from it either.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, it setup enough ideas for the author to return to that world in the another book if he wants, but this book was a fully self-contained story that has a clear ending if he chooses not do so.

Great read.

The action starts quite quickly and it doesn't slow down, however we don't get to find out things until about chapter 10. That's when things really get interesting. We also get a few surprises that I did not see coming. There was something that I guessed which turned out to be correct before even the characters found out. I was surprised they did not fugure it out or even have a theory about it. I also found one or two things that happened to fast and smoothly to be realistic.
The book has some profanity and violence.

The narrator I did like, but he did not do the female characters well and he sounded a lot older then the main character who is in his thirties. I kept imagining the character to be in his fifties. But other then this he is actually a good narrator.
