Publisher's Summary

Amazon's number-one time travel tale is now an audiobook narrated by one of the world's most iconic voice artists and acclaimed actors, Richard Ridings!
Richard is best known as the beloved voice of Daddy Pig on TV's Peppa Pig. His work on videogames such as Dungeon Keeper and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West have led Richard to receive critical acclaim.
Richard brings a mesmerizing performance to The Man That Time Forgot.
The story:
History is a great big lie.
Just open any book or talk to any history professor and they'll tell you that history is filled with nothing but glorious battles, great leaders, plagues, large fires, earthquakes, famous inventors, Egyptians, and Louis Pasteur.
This couldn't be further from the truth. History, in fact, is filled with a whole lot of nothing.
Andrew Adams knows that only too well.
He's an ordinary man living his life in the all-too-abundant and mundane spaces between those great moments. His life follows a daily routine much like that of many others: he wakes up, does the minimum required to get himself through the day - careful not to learn too much or create a lasting impression on anyone - and then he goes back to bed. There's only one ever-so-minor inconvenience that continually stands in the way of Andrew's ignorantly blissful life....
Time travel.
Since before he can remember, every time Andrew sleeps he's randomly flung through time and space, never knowing where or when he'll wake up, clueless to how it all started or how it can be stopped .The only things he can be certain of are that the location he arrives at won't be anywhere exciting, and he'll have to stay there until he loses his fight against sleep.
Andrew Adams has all but given up hope and given up on life. That is, until he meets someone like him.
