Publisher's Summary

When Micajah Fenton discovers a crater in his front yard with a broken time glider in the bottom and a naked, virtual woman on his lawn, he delays his plans to kill himself. While helping repair the marooned time traveler's glider, Cager realizes it can return him to his past to correct a mistake that had haunted him his entire life. As payment for his help, the virtual creature living in the circuitry of the marooned glider, sends Cager back in time as his 10-year-old self, knowing everything he'd known at 80 and gives him access to advanced equations of space and time.

But living life over knowing the future isn't as easy as Cager has anticipated. His every action alters the future he remembers until much of what he remembers never happened at all. And those changes work against him at every turn, preventing him correcting the most serious mistake of his life. Now he must use his advanced mathematical ability to build his own time machine to go back and try again. But he needs a fortune even to begin.

Then he receives help from a strange young woman with no history. While perfecting time travel, Cager and his new partner overcome enormous problems, even being hunted by dinosaurs in the Cretaceous. After that, though, things get really bizarre.

An Amazing Novel

This book was a beautiful journey. I loved everything about it. The concept, the narration, the writing style, and the honesty of the characters. It was quite poignant at times and it served the story well. Highly recommended!

One of the best books I've listen or read recently

I love every aspect of this book. There is an awesome character development, consistent logic and great storyline.

I'm not gonna lie but to say there are several parts of this book where I got teary eyes. If I wasn't in public at those moments, I would have cried.

Some people have said that the end felt a bit rush. I see what they meant by it, there is that but the book as a whole is great and I give the author a pass.

And, I think the reason for that is the narrator. He did a marvellous job at portrait every character, making you feel and empathise with their words and actions.

Amazing

A great new way to take on time travel, very easy to listen to. I rarely give 5 stars but this book definitely warranted it

Loved it. Sci fi mixed with coming of age.

The narrator was the perfect choice for this story, and the story was long, like it had numerous stages that were all standalone short stories joined together, but were just the many stages of the main character's life. I loved all of it, especially the part about his upbringing and all the bad things that happened throughout his childhood. The ending, however, was not quite how I would have liked it and didn't match the rest of the story in my opinion. It felt unrewarding and a bit clinical and detached. But I still thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Fantastic

What a wonderful story. I was utterly convinced by everything in this story - the main character Caje, the emotional journey he goes through (it’s not sappy) and the science. I found myself unable to stop listening. An adventure with brains and heart.
