In the 2150s, a scientist discovers time is actually fluid; past, present, and future all exist at the same time. What he doesn't know, is if the current timeline can change when something is changed in the past. The U.S. government wants him to find out. The theme being to make right what once went wrong.
The narration for this book is terrible. The narrator seems to force his voice and at times runs out of breath. His attempts to do different characters fail utterly.
The story is okay, just okay.
I would not recommend this to anyone.
Would you listen to Out of Time again? Why?
Yes I would. There is a lot of history in this novel. I'm sure it took a lot of thought to keep all of this history straight. It was fun to see what parts of history Mr. Ball could change and what parts he couldn't change.
What other book might you compare Out of Time to and why?
I can't really say, I love Star Trek and time travel in general. I think it could remind you of a lot of different popular shows.
What does Michael C. Gwynne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I really like the way he brings the novel to life. His tone helps to understand what the characters are feeling.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I did laugh a few times, I don't recall where, but It made me think and recall a lot of interesting times in History.
Any additional comments?
Good story, good narrator also there were times when the author prayed and I just like any novel that shows that prayer is very important in our daily life.
