Publisher's Summary

Run from the past. Run from the future. Run for your lives.
He's a novice time traveler in a big universe.
Ben just wants time with the scientist's daughter who got him into this, but when he's rooked into competing in a chronothon - an Amazing Race through time - getting the girl means he'll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving. To save the people he loves, he'll have to conquer the real dangers hidden in the shadows of the chronothon.
The world of time travelers expands in this next installment of the In Times Like These series. Fans of book one will find more to love, but new listeners can jump right in and enjoy this stand-alone story. Expect action, adventure, and romance on this journey through past and future. Fresh dangers will arise for Ben and company in a quest for the finish line, where failure to keep up will cost more than just a shot at glory - it could mean the end for them all.

Book 2 of a series

Very well and written and narrated. However, this is the second book of a series and I didn't know that when I listened. The book refers to previous events from the first book that takes one out of the story. The protagonist also begins the story with a good knowledge of time travel and relationships formed in the first book. Only the second book is available on Audible

this wasn't a good book, it was an awesome one

let me explain you why is this book in my opinion "awesome"

-it exploits time travel in a brilliant, intelligent and interesting way.
-it explains everything (theories, bases, places, situations, feelings) in a perfectly understandable way, as well as subtle.
-it makes a mix of adventure / science fiction / love / scary / fast phased story
-it makes it impossible to stop reading / listening to the story
-it makes every situation and every achievement real or possible to happen
-it hides a few in between the lines jokes that will definitely make you laugh
-it creates realistic and complex places, well detailed and easily imaginable
-characters are well built
-even dough this is the second book, its perfectly understandable and enjoyable without reading the first book
-most of the futuristic inventions that appear in this book are actually projects being developed nowadays
-the principal characters are mostly in their twentysomthigs but this definitely doesn't mean it can be enjoyed by a younger older audience.
-it will leave you wanting for more
-it concludes the story completely, but beautifully connects with the next book


3rd book is coming out in a few months or it has already out, depending on when you read this, so you won't have to wait long to know what happens next

hope this helps, and hope you buy this book, we need more authors as great as Nathan Van Coops

Compelling adventure story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm a big fan of the author, and loved The Chronothon when it was published as an ebook. It's very clever - a young man gets tricked into taking part in a deadly race through different periods in time. The action follows him and his fellow competitors. Terrific action sequences and some clever sub-plots.

The narrator is absolutely perfect for this novel - a great voice,and he reads with at the right tempo inflection for every line in each scene. A very hard job, done exceptionally well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronothon?

I really enjoy the extracts from Quickly's journal at the start of each chapter. There are some terrific action sequences, but also some clever sub-plots that play out really well.

Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not familiar with the narrator's other work, but this one is excellent.

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

Too long for one sitting. Excellent value!

Any additional comments?

Buy it!

A very thought out time travel universe!

The depth of the fiction leaves me feeling almost like this could be the way time travel really works. I want a 4D open world game made!

Totally Blown Away.

If you could sum up The Chronothon in three words, what would they be?

What A Rush

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronothon?

Walk like an Egyptian, I keep telling everyone about it, it was so funny.

What does Neil Hellegers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He represents Ben so well, He sounds exactly like what I imagine Ben would sound like.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Time travel Adventure Outside Your Lifetime

Any additional comments?

Listen to 'In Times Like These' first then listen to this book, make sure you have free time after you start, because you won't want to do anything but listen.
