A morality tale and a love story

Although the concept of this book was a little convoluted, the execution was really good. Several times I struggled with the 33-day concept. Leapers these people are called. Once I accepted the whole deal, I settled into a creative and novel concept.

Jenny is sent back to try to prevent a discovery that will eventually be a catastrophe for everyone on earth. The task is at once monumental and also very specific. She has to convince a young man that he’s destined to kill billions of people by accident. Talk about pressure.

I don’t want to give too much away, but this is a romance. A bit of insta-love, but I so wanted Jenny to get a happy ending. Based on the premise, she wasn’t destined for one, so the whole story kept me on the edge of my seat. I listened to the audio in just two days and am so glad I did.

There are many peripheral issues tackled – our treatment of the environment, mutating diseases, genetic modification - all things that are relevant today. There was no preaching or simple answers, just left me with a lot of questions about where humanity is headed and if there is anything that can be done or are we destined to destroy ourselves. Deep thinking yet seamlessly woven into the story.

A really great story. One I recommend.

This book is almost entirely in Jenny’s point of view, so I was surprised to find a male narrator. Soon I settled into Geoffrey Boyes’ narration and eventually came to really enjoy him. The book is Australian and he was perfect for the book. This was a great book and I hope others enjoy it.

Aussie SciFi with Heart

I've been delighted to discover a number of excellent books recently by Australian authors. I was intrigued by the concept of the book: 33 days in your younger body. I imagined what that would be like. Who hasn't wished they could know what they know now, but have the hot bod of our youth? When I thought about it, I didn't think about using that time in the past to try to save a dying world. King gives us a timer and sets in motion a do-or-die scenario with an unlikely heroine. Does this adventure hinge on derring do? No. Instead the crux tilts precariously on relationships, those most unpredictable things in life. Does she have the faith and courage to do what's necessary no matter what? Do they believe her? And that question we ask in every book: What happens? The story starts gently and builds strongly, but with an audio book you can't flip to the end to find out what happens!

Love story wrapped in time travel

An intriguing story about a woman, Jenny, who is a time Leaper and returns to her 2016 body to prevent the future destruction of crops. She meets Ian who is a dedicated father and widower who would inspire his son to create a crop with unintended consequences.

The authors premise of time jumpers is interesting, using science to travel in time. The story of Jenny and Ian is fun and I love the scene at the Vietnamese restaurant.

Overall a fulfilling story with a happy ending which I like.

Good audio book

Good audio book.
Four stars.
I prefer the ebook over the audio book sorry but I felt like the person who is reading it wasn't the right voice for the book. But it's still a good book.

Best book in ages.

Thought provoking and very very entertaining. Good job! Stephen is an old friend and I was very hesitant at first to read or listen to any of his books as I thought I would see his "presence" in the narrative. I was wrong . This book took me on a journey both intellectually and emotionally. Totally loved it.
