Children Ages 8+ • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Bruce Mann's lively narration and reflective tone help to build the world of this poignant, inventive tale. Twelve-year-old Al Chaudhury receives a letter from his dead father directing him to a time machine. Amid a plot featuring time travel, family history, science, and brain-bending paradoxes, Welford's characters are endearing and bold. Mann's portrayals draw listeners further into their adventures. He tackles a variety of accents and personalities with fluidity and insight, and his pacing draws a keen distinction between the high stakes of the Al's time-traveling adventures and the measured world-building of his homelife. While the story builds gradually before peaking in intensity, the payoff is worth it, and listeners will enjoy the ride. Ideal for road trips, and fans of both science fiction and adventure.
