Langton couldn't have done a better job narrating
THE MAP OF TIME: A Novel is a true work of penned art. The way Félix J. Palma seamlessly weaves the multiple stories, timelines and characters together is absolutely impressive.
And although Palma had me under his spell from start to finish with his clever composition of famous writers like H.G. Wells, Henry James and Bram Stoker as well as appearances by iconic personalities Jack the Ripper and Joseph Merrick (the Elephant Man); it was the ‘unknown’ cast that stole my heart. In particular, I was completely captivated my by society girl, Claire Haggerty and small time thug, Tom Blunt’s unconventional love story. The storyline of the unlikely pair was both hilarious and over the top while, oddly enough, wholly romantic in its own way.
In my opinion, Palma’s execution, of what could easily have turned into a mess of names, places and dates, is flawlessly told and fully entertaining. THE MAP OF TIME: A Novel is one of those reads that continues to occupy your mind long after the last page has been read and a solid add to my “favorites” shelf.

I could not remember what the publisher's summary said about this book, so I was going into it somewhat blind...which I love to do. It was a mystery and a surprise - very nice ones at that. I found part one to be the weakest of the three parts, but all were fantastic and by the time part three came around I was looking for ways to continue listening. Narration was excellent as well.
