Time travel stories are hard. This has an interesting spin but I felt it got bogged down trying to hammer home a point.

Had me... until the end

I was right into the story, the winding mystery had me invested - and it flowed really well. And then the end came and I was... underwhelmed. You may feel differently, I just wanted more.

Great book if you’re smart enough

I found this really interesting but had to relisten so many times ‘cause I’m just not smart enough :)

What did you like best about The Punch Escrow? What did you like least?

I don't quite know what happened here. About a third of the way through I was enjoying this - nice idea for a story, plenty to explore and then it just stopped being intriguing. I started to find the protagonist annoying. The book mentions Choose Your Own Adventure, if this was one, I would have made many different choices.

Has The Punch Escrow put you off other books in this genre?

No, in fact I have thoroughly enjoyed other books exploring this theme

Was The Punch Escrow worth the listening time?

Worth it? That's hard. I did speed it up to 1.5x to get it finished...

Like it or not, there's going to be at least as much business as music if you want to be successful as a full time musician. Thankfully there's a map to this bumpy terrain. Packed with ideas and tips, this guide is a must listen.

Very philosophical but easily digestible, Happy delivers plenty of lines that make you stop and think, finding a different perspective and, perhaps, a better way to live

Great Course. Sometimes.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

It's hard - the book covered many different areas and i found some engaging, riveting even... and some not so. It would be different for each listener I suspect

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

Probably the more grisly ones, the murders and serial killer chapters. The fraud and espionage lectures weren't really my thing.

What aspect of Professor Elizabeth A. Murray’s performance might you have changed?

The Professor was great, I just wasn't as excited by some of the topics as she was

Was Forensic History: Crimes, Frauds, and Scandals worth the listening time?

Half yes, half no... but that was my personal judgement. If you're a fan of espionage and fraud cases then you'll get a lot more out of the second half than I did.

Difficult to like

First off, I thought the performances were great. The variety of voices is what kept me going more than anything but I just didn't get it. I couldn't finds character to like and at times struggled to see how they fit into the overall story. A complete slog for me to finish this unfortunately.
