review 1: Interesting short story or novella audiobook. Started out great, but towards the end something happened and I just couldn't quite buy into it anymore. Without posting spoilers, she develops an interesting premise, but then has to come up with a totally contrived bit of technology (I'm an engineer and I still don't quite understand how this was supposed to work) in order to force a certain behavior from the antagonist. Still, it was a good way to fill 3 hours of driving. I've read some of the other reviews on Goodreads, and mostly agree with the 2-star and 3-star reviews, except that I had no problem with the audiobook's narrator.

... mores not simply one place in time, but to be whenever you experience anything, be it in the present or the future. I do believe, however, that this premise was truly wasted on the story Wilhelm told with it. There are so many more fantastic ideas and stories it could have been utilized for that would have been much better. Perhaps she already has written or will write another story in this 'universe' involving this sort of time travel that is or will be more along the lines of what I was expecting. Or perhaps the time travel wasnt truly real in this story, but an effect of the paranoid schizophrenia the family suffered from that corresponded with the narcolepsy. less
