    "What a ride."

    This book starts out in Atlantis, then you are in the present, or back in Alexandria. It keeps moving and you have to wonder what is going to happen next. A must. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    Story
    "Interesting idea but ended up confusing and boring"

    The concepts of this story sounded intriguing when I read the description, but in execution, the story just dragged. I was initially confused by all the back and forth between different times and people, but then I just got bored. There is a lot of talking both between characters and internal monologue, and there is little action, minimal real suspense or danger, and little urgency. I listened to the end, because I wanted to know how it would turn out for Michael and what his connection to Sara was - it was made to sound like they were some kind of soulmates. Apparently not. In the end, this audiobook could have been cut in half and you wouldn't miss anything.

    The narrator's voice was good and the delivery was even and clear, but some of the characters (like Roger) sounded like they were stoned most of the time. It was hard to see Mathews as a menace due to his flighty demeanor, and hard to take either he or Roger seriously.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

    Story
    "Meh... could have been better"

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

    The premise was really interesting to me... a stone that send you into past lives... That being said, I thought this one missed the mark on execution. There was just too much dialog. In some places in the book there was so much talking that I lost interest in the action that was happening before. Overall, I thought the narrator did a good job, though some of his foreign accents (i.e. Arabic and Latin accents) sounded the same the same. All things considered, it was just ok and I wouldn't burn a credit on it.

    Story
    "Interesting and different"

    I enjoyed the story even though it was way out in left field from normal (or maybe because it was.)
    Astral travel, time travel, mind travel, thought control, right and wrong, good and evil, aliens living among us (they have been here a really long time so maybe this is their world too.) This book deals with it all as part of a cohesive story. Did I say cohesive? This story is very hard to get into because it jumps around so much. By the end it is all coming together enough that you are comfortable with who’s who but that is definitely not the case in the first half of the story.

    I did not the like narration from Persephone Rose. Many of his characters sounded whiny most of the time and I do not believe it was written that way. There was reasonable differentiation for most characters however a couple with similar names and voices increased the confusion from the story jumping around so much.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "A story twice as long as it should be."

    This audio book, The Stone Of Alexandria: A tale of Magic, has a great premise that intrigued me when I read the description before I downloaded it. The first several chapters were engaging and I started really getting into the few characters and their plights. But, that quickly started to diminish by the time I was one quarter way through the story. It tends to drag out the story in drawn out dialog and situations that don't move the story forward. All the while dragging on and killing exciting momentum. By the time the end came, I just didn't care.

    The narration drove me crazy! The narrator has a good voice for narration of a non fiction book, but his accents are horrible and the differentiation between characters needs a lot of work. E.g., the Hispanic taxi driver has the same quasi British accent as the rest of the characters.

    I was given this free review copy of this audio book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "Love to have that stone!"

    The idea for the story was impressive but the story was difficult to get into. After chapter ten I started to give up. The idea that a stone can cause you to drop into another body in another time. Great imagination! I received this Audio book for free from Audiobook boom in exchange for an unbiased review. Thank you for the listen.
