Shawn Inmon Thank you so much for the 12 books

Shawn Inmon Thank you so much for the 12 books in the Middle Falls series. I finished the last one just 30" ago and am sitting here on a high. My 1st thoughts was with all the stuff going now that The Many Short Lives of Charles Waters was the perfect medicine for me. Can you tell I smiling? I must say after hearing you talk about the books it took me back to when I read them. I came to the conclusion that the very best one was the 1st and last ones I read. All the ones in between were a so close 2nd.

Great series

I absolutely LOVE this series and always look forward to the next book. Definitely think this series needs to be a Netflix series....would be a huge hit.

The best one yet.....

I really connected with this story over all the rest....the main character seems to be on the Autism spectrum, although the author has left that up to the reader to decide. My daughter has Autism, so I have decided he's definitely Asperger's and that made his character especially likable to me.

The narrator did a great job on the voices, especially MoonDoggy....that littered the story with some great comic relief.

As always, I get lost in these books, they are great food for thought, and it really spurs me to think about how I would handle the situations that the characters have been thrust into.

I'm sad this is the last book of the series, at least for now, but at the same time I am equally excited to get started on the Alex Hawk Time Travel series....Thank you Shawn!

Great addition to the series

As always a fun listen. Even better with Jonathan Davis reading. Felt a little like we were on the planet Anyar ( Olan Thorsen, Destiny's Crucible series)

Flawless

I purchased this book as a daily deal for less than three dollars and it’s easily in my top ten books of all time. I fell in love with Charles Waters and Moon Dog. I fell in love with each of Charles’ lives and discoveries. But I am most impressed with the voice acting of Jonathan Davis. He made each of the characters come alive with the magic of their own unique voice. As far as I’m concerned this book is flawless. What a wonderful surprise! Definitely deserves to be read by everyone on the planet, and beyond.

Great story, great narration

I loved this story.

I’m a big fan of time travel and time loop stories, which, honestly can be a frustrating thing to be a fan of. It’s very easy for a book or show to go pear shaped and leave me disappointed.

I tried an early Shawn Immon Middle Falls book awhile back and gave up after a number of chapters. The big problem with that one was I didn’t care for the writing. It was “over written” and just too hard for me to get through.

I’ve been avoiding Immon books since then but Audible kept suggesting them to me and I finally just gave in and tried this book out.

Loved it! The writing is clean. The story is satisfying. The narrator does a great job. (I could do without the blue bird and that nonsense but that’s a quibble and none of it took away from my enjoyment.)
