I love this series. I stumbled on it by accident while looking for a new time travel audio book to entertain me as I walk or drive. This book is full of intelligent thoughts, action sequences, and surprises.

I honestly didn't think Hodges could pull of a squeal to the Never Hero, especially within the style he chose to write it. The Never Hero is one of my favorite books of all time. Not due to the incredible story arc (still really good) but because of the character development and the way in which Hodges goes about telling the hero story.
In the Never Paradox, Hodges is able to keep that style of development by growing Jonathon from the a typical soldier, to the leader that he will become. We still get the hero development story arc between Jonathon and the roommates, but we also get the personal development between Jonathon and his subconscious (Literally). We also get the love story/triangle that everybody predicted we'd get. But that development turns out to probably be the best part of the book; which is surprising coming from me! And his new love interest is already in his world and we finally have someone to discuss things with without them forgetting or not believing Jonathon!
My only true complaint is about an hour of the book about a quarter of the way in. This is when we get the answers to SOOOO many questions. It's all relevant and somewhat interesting, but it takes forever and actually starts to drag on. If it was spread out through out the book, then It would have been bearable, but thrown at you for an hours length of book, was just aggravating by the end!
I'll also complain about Hodges' desire to get Jonathon a rival at all cost. I wont ruin the story, but it's forced and undesirable. However, this is greatly outweighed by finally introducing us to Jonathon's new companions!
I can't wait for book 3 to see how this all ends!

Good story line, with some unexpected twists. the writer keep you on the hook until the last. I can't wait until the next installment.
What made the experience of listening to The Never Paradox the most enjoyable?
There are some satisfying payoffs from set-ups in the first book, as well as from within the book itself. Also as a deconstruction of superhero themes it is not disrespectful of dismissive of the source material.
What about Steven Barnett’s performance did you like?
Steven Barnett nails each character,
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
read the book.
Any additional comments?
Can not wait for the next part! I'd recomend this book for fans of Urban Fantasy as it
And when I though this story couldn’t get any better!!!
Highly recommended, couldn’t stop listening to this audio book !
The info dumping is so long (multiple chapters) that Tibbs even mentions how pointless it was.
Aside from that its really good.
