Publisher's Summary

When Kevin Johnson, 22, goes to Wallace, Idaho, days after his college graduation, he expects to find rest and relaxation as his family prepares his deceased grandfather's house for sale. Then he discovers a hidden diary and a time portal that can take him to 1910, the year of Halley's Comet and the largest wildfire in US history. Within hours, Kevin finds himself in the era of horse-drawn wagons, straw hats, and ankle-length dresses. Traveling repeatedly to the same time and place, he decides to make the portal his gateway to summer fun. The adventure takes a more serious turn, however, when the luckless-in-love science major falls for pretty English teacher Sarah Thompson and integrates himself in a community headed for disaster. Filled with humor, romance, and heartbreak, The Fire, the sequel to The Journey, follows a conflicted soul through a life-changing journey as he makes his mark on a world he was never meant to see.

I enjoyed this book

Where does The Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

about middle of the road.. I've listed to some good audio's

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sadie.. she was sort of a lost soul who was given a second chance to make something of herself.

What about Chaz Allen’s performance did you like?

Listening to Chaz was sort of like listening to Casey Kasem and the American Top 10.. but I got use to it.. He kept the story going.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, I didn't have an extreme reaction, but I haven't listened to the whole series in order, so there were a few references I missed, but that's b/c I didn't read the 1st and 2nd, but, I believe these are stand alone books, and the things I missed, were only references. (so I got the other books)

Any additional comments?

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

A Completely Different Experience from the Book

What did you like best about The Fire? What did you like least?

I did not care for the style of narration. Felt more like I was being told a children's tale

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Very different.

What three words best describe Chaz Allen’s performance?

I think Mr. Allen would make a great narrator of children's books. Mr. Allen has a very distinct rhythm to his narration. It rarely altered throughout the entire production.

Any additional comments?

This is the second Heldt story I have listened to. I enjoy the concept of time travel stories. This one had surprises that I liked. However, I think I'll save the others for my ebook.<br/><br/>I received a copy free via audibookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.
