Publisher's Summary

When Nigel Walden is 14, the Unhappenings begin. His first girlfriend disappears the day after their first kiss with no indication she ever existed. This retroactive change is the first of many only he seems to notice. Several years later, when Nigel is visited by two people from his future, he hopes they can explain why the past keeps rewriting itself around him. But the enigmatic young guide shares very little, and the haggard, incoherent, elderly version of himself is even less reliable. His search for answers takes him 52 years forward in time, where he finds himself stranded and alone. And then he meets Helen. Brilliant, hilarious, and beautiful, she captivates him. But Nigel's relationships always unhappen, and if they get close it could be fatal for her. Worse, according to the young guide, just by entering Helen's life, Nigel has already set into motion events that will have catastrophic consequences. In his efforts to reverse this, and to find a way to remain with Helen, he discovers the disturbing truth about the unhappenings and the role he and his future self have played all along.
Equal parts time travel adventure and tragic love story, Unhappenings is a tale of gravely bad choices and Nigel's struggle not to become what he sees in the preview of his worst self.

Wow, what a ride!

I have over 400 books in my library and I have never written a review, but this book is so good that I had to put my two cents in.
READ/LISTEN to Unhappenings!

I wish my mind worked like Edward Aubrey' s, then I could keep myself entertained all the time and, wouldn't spend so much money on audible. Unfortunately it doesn't. ( you can stop holding your breath audible, you will still get my money. haha) So I will continue to search for books and buy them.
I found Unhappenings a little hard to get into at first and did some re-listening to a few chapters, but once I was 1/4 of the way in it and met Penelope/Una/Athena and Hellena it grabbed my full attention and did not let go until the very end.
Josh Hurley did an excellent job. I completely forgot about him almost immediately. I was just listening to the characters tell me their story.
My advise is, buy this book.

Happy Listening!

Loved it...

So much that I listened twice. Different take on time travel with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting throughout.
