Publisher's Summary

When grad student Jim Tiber hears about a time machine at Columbia University, his first plan is to go back in time and to meet the Beatles and study the way they rose from mediocrity. However, just as he's about to discover their secret in 1962, he is thrown back in time to an alternate timeline - Rommel's powerful North Africa campaign.

Lots of potential but didnt meet expectations

I really wanted to like this title. The Beatles, Desert Fox, and time travel make for an interesting combination. The time travel device seemed to be a bit sketchy and the scientists a little thin but all in all the story although basic, was decent enough.

My main distraction was the narration. I cant place my finger on it but somehow it didnt quite mesh. I felt it was more of a reading than a performance. The accents were fine when they were used but somehow I kept noticing the narrator instead of the narration just blending into the story. Perhaps listen to the sample and judge for yourself
