Funny. Heartbreaking. Fascinating. This story engaged me from start to finish. I could not stop listening.

A great sequel to Time Shards.

David and Dana have taken Time Shards and expanded it to write this fantastic sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed this ripping story across time, but, not across time. Read it and you will know what I mean.

Not a bad listen but has it's flaws.

I enjoyed listening to Meg and her tough love approach to helping people get to the root of thier problems. Good advise and a kick in the butt is sometimes all a person needs to get up and take action. It certainly gave me the encouragment i needed to start qriting that book ive procrastinated aboit for five years. But one thing that really stood out to me was her lack of knowledge when it comes to child indoctrination. Megs approach to these people who were stuck in religious mindsets, I feel, need to be made aware of just how messed up thier thinking is due to their religious environment. The gay man wasn't being manipulative. He was trying to hide what he really was due to his indoctrination. And telling people he wasn't gay was more of a defence mechanism to deter judgement by his fellow parishioners than an attempt to manipulate them. The over weight pastors wife was exhibiting narssistic attributes, but was she being like that to buck the mysoginistic teachings of the church? Women must be silent according to the apostle Paul. This woman was not silent. she was loud and boisterous and hilarious. The church tells her to keep quiet. To do exactly what she isnt. And lastly the JW girl at the end. As an ex JW myself I could fully relate to her depression and suicidal tendencies. Many JW leave that cult (Yes it is a cult. Check out Steven Hassan's book Combatting Cult Mind Control) broken and lonely due to the destructive shunning practice the JW leaders expect from thier members toward family and friends that leave. You can't even question any of the doctrines and practices of this cult. Added to this, when she said that a couple of Elders (priests) came over to question her about her sexual activity, this should have been a huge red flag for Meg. Two old men listening to an underage girl speak about her sexual activity. No wonder that cult is a perfect hunting ground for pedophiles. Anyway, I'm sure this audio book will help plenty of people. It's enjoyable and easy to listen to. Cheers.

I felt it lacked a few elements that could have added to the characters development. Things like when Joe left earth, we only briefly hear about his reuniting with his parents after all this time away in space. Skippy steals the show though and his friendship with Joe is funny and entertaining. Well worth a listen, even if it seems a little unfinished. Oh and R.C Bday delivers in his gravelly American drawl another great reading. Great work mate. 👍 EDIT: Ok so the part with his family reunion is covered in another book. Haha!!

Dr Garcia gives a fascinating perspective of the origins of the human mind and the correlation of religious violence and evolution. A great listen and thoroughly enjoyable.

Another great chapter in The Expanse series.
