A nice short story that ends with a cliffhanger

It was a very fun story and anyone who loves time travel stories should enjoy it.

But I gave it 4 stars instead of five because it ended with a cliffhanger and I don't see any sequel. I'm very sad!

Fun read

I was given this book for free at my request but the opinion is of my own. This was a very fun time travel story of a scientist who works for Tesla discovers time travel. He has to search for particular boxes with his assistant in order to keep the timeline in place. Easy fun read.

Great time travel adventure

The Amazing Adventures of Mr. Tinker is a good time travel adventure novel with the interesting perspective of being set around the turn of the century, Mr. Tinker worked for Nikola Tesla, instead of the normal modern day or future setting. Great story with the advantage of being clean enough for a YA novel without being a YA novel. The only issue I had with the first installment of the story is that each time hop was too quick. I would have like it if each adventure delved deeper into their experiences in each time period. This could have been increased to an 8 or 10hr adventure without slowing down the pace.

More story outline than a prequel

I liked the story premise but sometimes it had so much narration to fast forward the story that it feel more like the story outline than a short prequel for some adventure series based on the task of recovering the "chronoboxes" (as some of the time travels are address in a couple of paragraphs or lines). I was expecting more from this story as it seams to have potential. The narration was ok.

Enjoyable short read

The Amazing Adventures of Mr. Tinker: A Time Travel Novel, my sixth read from Dr. Paul Ibbetson. I was introduced to Ibbetson with his 50's ville quintet. Another enjoyable short read that captivated my attention. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Perfect

Darren Steven was the perfect choice to narrate are this book. Jovanni and the professor were performed so well, not to mention how great the story is. So if you like the good beating the bad guys, time travel and historical fun this is the book for you. There is no vulgar language so it is safe for anyone to read there is a shooting but it is done mutely and so there are no graphic violence sings. Also when the shooting happened to you rooting for the shooter. There’s a great book!

A quest cut short

This was an interesting time travel story. I would like to know what happens after he shoots Hitler but then it would be much longer. I enjoyed the story and that is all that matters.

Quick time travel story

I enjoyed this short read. There is a lot of potential in the story of Mr. Tinker and his time machines. I'm hoping to see more volumes in the future. I received this audiobook from the narrator/author/publisher in exchange for an honest review via Audiobook Boom.

Great story for the kids

Just finished listening, Love the part with the Lizard creatures, I could just imagine the 'kung foo' fight with these Lizards. Mr Tinkerton and his young assistant took several travels in time using the chronobox while trying to retrieve a chronobox that had been stolen by other scientists. This is a brilliant book for older kids.

Great short story

Very interesting the references to specific periods of time we can recognise, good story as well. I hope there is a follow on as I was quite disappointed at the ending, but perhaps that is because there's more to come. Narration was spot on too. Tracey Allan

Enjoyable short story

To start I’d like to make it clear that I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Going into the review, I’m a big fan of sci-fi books and I really enjoyed this time travelling short story. The story itself was good and despite it being a short story, it sets the scenes really well and doesn’t appear rushed. I felt that the narration of Darren Stephens was excellent and I’ll definitely be having a look to see what other books he’s read. I personally don’t usually purchase short stories. It’s my own preference as I often don’t think that they’re worth the Audible Credit (i.e. when you can pick the full Sherlock Holmes collection or other sci-fi books like Space Team, both 60+ hrs range and cost the same as a book that’s less than 2hrs). If I could pick up shorts like this for a few pounds rather than using my credit I think I might well do that going forward as it was enjoyable.
