Draws you in and holds you there

Well plotted and fast paced, with excellent imagery enabling the reader to acclimate to futuristic environment. The characters draw you in, and the cops/suspense aspects are very easily adapted to this setting. The plot twists are sharp and work very well. Looking to get more by this author as audios become available.
The narrator was a good fit for this book, and it was easy to sense that he was fully engaged in the project. It was helpful that his voice and pacing, as well as character interpretation were very good.

A plot with twists and hidden surprises

I gave this four out of five stars for the break neck pace of an action movie, the beautiful language of a beloved classic, and the vivid imagery I wish existed in more contemporary works of this genre.
What I liked:
1) The characters, each one was full of hidden surprises that were just as intriguing as the plot of the book. In the beginning most are sketched together and appear very typical to the crime-thriller genre, they evolve and transform which made them fresh and added depth to the novel.
2) The Futuristic world, in my opinion is one of the stand out features of the book. I like being taken to new places that are strange and different, and Vicino took me somewhere new with gusto. Nano technology that does everything from brushing teeth to fixing a broken leg, flying cars, hologram clothing, and air transport that works off of a real scientific theory.
3) The plot, there are a lot of moving parts in it. Some of the early scenario’s seemed to bump against my suspended disbelief, but somehow the protagonists impending death made it work. I like the role of time in the plot, and how as time wore out it became more important.

Slightly Confusing but Interesting

Where does Time Heist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not the best, not the worst

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the ideas and descriptions of future tech! Some really great ideas; nanotech, intuits, maybe someday they'll be real!

I also enjoyed the incorporation of Adam and Eve.

The title names were good too :D.

Any additional comments?

Some parts were a little confusing and the story does jump about a bit, however the fact I often listen to audiobooks before bed may be a factor!
Will need to re-listen and check what I missed and look forward to doing so.

The story had twists and interesting ideas and development although it also was reminiscent of some other science fiction titles; in time especially, the fifth element, for me maybe even some correlation to mass effect :o etc.

Great narration and voice acting!
Really good at all the characters.

Interested to hear the next in the series!
