No expectations

I went to this with no expectations. I didn't garner much from the story description, so it was fresh ears. I fumbled along the way a bit confused about what was going on. But I stayed with the story and it unfollowed like a flower. I found this story to be quite intriguing and well worth the 8 hour listen. Definitely unusual but in a most enjoying and satisfying way. Would have liked to explore the technology more but I guess that leaves the door open for more to least I hope so!

Messy but entertaining to be sure

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The concept is awkward, but the performance is excellent ( as usual for the sardonic Kevin P.) I would clarify what/where the listener is expected to go, concept wise.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Frankly, overall it is interesting, if only for the somewhat abstract nature of the story. The least was the usual proselytizing, which seems to be a theme in books read by Mr.Pierce.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

Consistency and attitude, which KP has in abundance.

Did Wayward Son inspire you to do anything?

It is actually thought provoking in no small way, so thinking about my destiny comes to mind.

Any additional comments?

On balance, this is a fascinating offering. I did obtain my copy from Kevin Pierce ( ?! ) in exchange for this independent review, but notwithstanding that I would likely have spent a credit on it. Not brilliant, but worthy of a listen.

Moving and deep take on Time Travel!

What did you like most about Wayward Son?

I really liked this take on time travel, a completely new one! I highly recommend anyone interested in time travel to read or listen to Wayward Son.

What did you like best about this story?

That it change someones life for the better

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The one about Craig! It was so very well written. Normally we would probably think that Neanderthals where grunting and uncivilised (they where by our standards), but what do we know about the times they lived in? I absolutely LOVED this scene!

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

Time Travel with Meaning

Any additional comments?

Often when I have listened or read a book that was well written, one that really have something to say, and moves my mind, I think this author must have some wisdom, some real life experience, to write something like this! Well done Joseph Hansen!
