Had Some Promise

3 out of 5 stars

Time travel is one of my favorite genres. I did enjoy this story and it had a lot of promise, but I felt like I wanted more when it came to the characters getting out of trouble. I also wanted more time travel. In a sense, it was too easy and I wanted more “trickery” to a certain extent.

The characters in An Altered Course were well developed and I tended to care about their well being. I enjoyed the wit and back stories of the main characters as well.

The story flowed well and I was able to get into a good listening routine but I just wanted more problems or urgency for the main characters. The majority of this story is about the creation and harnessing of time travel rather than time travel itself.

Be warned there are some mature scenes in this one and some language sprinkled throughout but not enough to really bother me.

John C. Snipes’ performance was great. There was clear distinction between character’s voices and the tone used really added to the story. He added to the story for sure.
