Critic Reviews

"Returning to his hometown after a failed marriage, recovering alcoholic Tom Winter purchases a house only to discover that it connects with another time and place - and his desire to 'start over' suddenly becomes a literal possibility. Wilson excels at psychological suspense, as the spiritual and emotional challenges his characters face are as intense as the physical dangers. A solid addition to any sf collection."

absorbing, excellent narration

I really enjoyed this outing from 1991, and appreciate the effort the creators took to bringing it to audiobook format. The future predictions from the actual date of the book - 1991 - are amazingly spot on, and as with other RCW books, a lot of time is (well) spent on character development. The different times and places - at least those which we've already lived through - feel quite real.

I think pitch shifting technology may have been used - to subtle, good effect, to enhance the male narrator's rendition of the female voices. Also, the accent for one of the male characters, who hails from a small town in Washington State, is so spot on it's scary.

For those who enjoy time travel themed sci-fi, you're in for a treat.

Such an Interesting book

What made the experience of listening to A Bridge of Years the most enjoyable?

I believe in any audible book that the narrator can make or break a book. Jonathan did a fantastic job.

What did you like best about this story?

Like all of the books I've read by Robert Wilson, his main characters are well thought out, and are believable.
The story was great! I love the concept of having a home, that is in fact a time machine.
Also, when Tom went back to 1962, I really felt like I was in New York 1962.

What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

Everything!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. But I have a life, and have to quarantine time to listen to audio books :-)

Any additional comments?

I read or listen to books for fun. I am able to dispel my reality, and get into stories that are as good as this one.
