Publisher's Summary

Joe Haldeman is the esteemed Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of The Forever War. Things are going nowhere for lowly MIT research assistant Matt Fuller - especially not after his girlfriend drops him for another man. But then while working late one night, he inadvertently stumbles upon what may be the greatest scientific breakthrough ever. His luck, however, runs out when he finds himself wanted for murder - in the future.

Cool idea. Tediously told.

Haldeman tells you everything every philosopher imagines about time travel. Over and over and over and... ZZZZZZzzzzzz. Okay I knew the book was 7hrs when I bought it. What I didn't know is that the author magically made it seem like 42 hours... Or at least when I stopped listening it seemed like a trick to mash that many minutes into such a small container... Not an interesting trick.

Hey, if you just want to hear, say, the first forty percent of this book... Well, that part's not bad... Filled with potential. When I pressed 'stop' I no longer cared about the questions raised in the beginning. Kevin Free reads alright, although my wife, who listened along with me on a long road trip, found his female voices weird.

In all... pass on this one.

Unexpected Sci-Fi

When I read reviews before buying, I kept reading that it had a twist. How much of twist could a time travel book really have? It's a big one.

The story and characters are good on their own, nobody stands out as amazing, just solid enjoyment. But the twist had me literally going, "Huh? Huh? HUH!"

I stuck it out because I was so curious to see how the author could take me from "OMG No" to "Yay!" And he does.
