Land of the Living
The storyline and the character development are very well done and thought out.. I feel like this level of complexity could have easily ended up badly, but instead I listened to the whole book down in just a couple of days.

A story you will read over, and over, and over ...
Pinard's Land of the Living is a rare gem. It is a time travel story that does not confuse the reader (time travel can be tricky and hard to make sense of), makes sense, and is both fun and poignant at the same time. The temporal mechanics are different from most time travel stories, too. His characters jump out at you, and you will get to know them well.
The story has elements of Quantum Leap, but just a nods worth, and it stands quite well as its own story. The story is rife with emotions, and like the Butterfly Effect you can see how one simple change can lead to an unexpected or forseen result.
I love time travel stories, Quantum Leap, Groundhog Day, Happy Death Day, Doctor Who, etc. I cherish them when done well, and this book does that. It draws a line in the sand and dares others to do better. I really enjoyed this book.
Mack does a good job here, as well. He doesn't do a lot of voices, but with narration done as well as he does he can pull it off without a hitch. I'll look forward to him doing the next book if there is a sequel.
Get this book, and enjoy.

A read that kept me going and was worth it.
This book was given to me free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This is a very well written book that has plenty of action and keeps you reading/listening whilst eagerly waiting for the plot points to unfold further.
You feel like the story hasn't really developed then all of a sudden you are hit with something that makes you sit up and take notice again.
The narration is very good with good continuity of character voices throughout.
The sense of immersion in the audio is fantastic helping you to really feel like the story is unfolding in front of you instead of the story being read to you.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants that likes a Time Travelling story without all of the technical aspects that normally come with this sub genre.
Well worth the time to listen/read.
