Incomplete story

I was sold on this book by a friend who hadn't listened to it yet. We both liked the premise: "Time traveller goes back into the old west"

The first 1-2 hours... seemed to deliver on that... then....

Everything unravels. The writer introduces multiple story threads, and barely relates them to each other. He has characters spend time togehter, remarks that one is brimming with questions... and asks NONE of them. Zero exposition to explain what the hell the author is trying to say.

I also blame GoodReads as apparently this "first" book, was a collection of 5, previously smaller stories, now put together. I thought this would mean it was a complete story, But no, it's barely an introduction, and despite being published 4 years ago, the sequel is only now being released in July (no word on audio adaptaion).

Stick a pin in this, come back in a decade to see if it's done, then waste a credit or 3.

Unfinished Teaser

What would have made Black Book better?

The book is simply not finished. Not worth the Audible Credit.

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

The book simply finished. Its not even a "Book 1" just a series of plot threads.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Well spoken throughout

Any additional comments?

A good time travel premise, with lots of ideas, but not in any sense "a book". A waste of money and should not be on Audibles list.

This is by far the strangest story

This is by far the strangest story I have finished in a long time.
Jack is the main character. He is in an old western town setting. Trouble is riding toward the town. Trouble is also behind him, in the saloon. There is a fight and as he looks into the double barrel of the shotgun he swallows a black liquid, and vanishes. He pops up in a ocean, swims to shore and finds a cave to hide in. Oh, his clothes did not make the journey with him.

Future time, back on the space station, two men are getting ready to make the trip back in time. They use transparent capsule dropped from the station. Their mission is to find Jack and stop him or kill him. One is a Native American, the other is a huge man nicknamed Ox. There is deceit and the mission does not go as planned. There to watch the launch are President Freeman and the General. The General's background is a little more detailed then that of President Freeman.

There is also a cop, Rogers, who gets pulled into the action. He has the Black Book in his possession. Not sure how he got it. During the night his house is broken into by unknown men. He fights back and there is an explosion. When he investigates he finds himself transported to an unknown land taking the Black Book with him.

The story line jumps back and forth and sometimes it is confusing. The writer goes form one character's story to another's and it does not always seem consistent. There are several different story lines going on at the same time and in different times. Nothing seems to be explained in this part of the series. I guess we will have to wait for the next book to see if anything comes to a conclusion..

I really liked Tom's reading. He has a very nice voice. The way he added emotion to the action brought the story to life. The production was perfect.
