Poor follow-up to previous books

Looked forward to hearing where Rose was going to take the story. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed and ended up skipping through parts which were obviously filler. I do not recommend.

Brilliant work, will keep you in anticipation for book four

Admittingly, I binged this entire series during a 15+ hour car ride to one place and then back. The entire series consumed my thoughts, put me on edge, and still has my brain turning in anticipation for book 4!

By the time you listen to this third book, you
will realize that Mark Rose has effectively caused you, the reader, to begin questioning time in the same way Stephen King thoughtfully discussed this subject in 11/23/63. Can we really change the future out of our own free will or are we pre-destined to the same end result no matter how we get there? Does the future want to be changed? Is everything we are told about our history really as it seems?

This book takes the reader down the path of asking “what if” over and over again. If one variable was changed in the past, would it be enough to have a drastic impact on the future? Perhaps the future was never as intended and needs to be corrected. Rose does not get into the subject of paradoxes, but does successfully keep the listener on the edge of their seats in anticipation for what happens next and whether the next big event will detrimentally impact the safety and security of
the relatable protagonist.

I combed audible for similar stories because after this book ended, i saw book 4 was not out yet. This search led me to realizing how special this series really is because no one else has tapped into this niche concept of science, historical fiction, speculative and alternate history, combined with philosophy in a format that keeps the reader engaged and asking for more.

another good story by terrible narrator

i wish mark rose would pay to have a real narrator read his stories. this book is the worse of the three but a decent listen. i am not sure if I'll continue the series.

Third book in, still struggling with the narration

It's hard to imagine someone thinking it was a good idea to dub the narrators voice multiple times to represent a group of singing sailors. I almost had to quit at this point despite being three books into the story. It was so bad. I wish the author had chosen a more experienced narrator for this story. Would have enjoyed it so much more.

not my normal style but the story and timing!

I love story's that make you want more the types that when you have to get back to reality you keep wanting to back and read/listen some more! This one of thouse give it 20 min into the series and you are over the hump of the authors reading and story telling stile and after book 1 you cant wait for 2 then 3. Now I want 4 today.... that says it all! Have Fun!

Pretty intense story

The story is really good, with interesting plot development.
I know the author reads this, not an actor, but I’d expect his rhythm and intonation to be a little more natural.

Not as good as books 1 and 2

I was sorry to discover Matt’s family plays a very small role in this book and the story is much poorer for it. Very few new relationships are presented in this continuation and nearly all are antagonistic. My favorite parts of the previous books where Matt employs his modern know how to ultimately prosper in the past are nowhere to be seen in book 3. I’m not sure I’ll be picking up book 4 based on the story thus far. Well written, but kind of disappointing.

Tough to stop listening!

I loved all 3 of these books. I never had an issue with the author's narration but I can understand maybe some people want to hear more accents. I got a feeling like the narrator was the main character probably because hes the author. I dont consider that a bad thing. I definitely reccomend the book.

disappointed in the length of the book

a lot seems to be left out of the story. always like a half book at full price. quality was not quite as good as the first two.

I recommend waiting until the next one comes out before starting this one

Disappointed

Skipped ahead ten years of story I wanted to hear, this could have been book 4.
