Summary

The Future Has Already Happened.
It's expected to be an excursion like any other. There is nothing in the records to indicate that anything out of the ordinary will happen. A bus will take them to the mall. They will have an hour or so to look around. Perhaps buy something, try their food.
A minor traffic incident on the way back to the resort will provide additional interest - but the tour rep has no reason to expect any trouble. Until he notices that one of his party is missing. Most disturbingly, she is a woman who, according to the records, did not go missing.
Now she is a woman whose disappearance could change the world.
With breathtaking plot twists that ricochet through time, The Tourist is the most original conspiracy thriller you will listen to this year.

Intriguing addition to time travel genre

Lots of interesting ideas around time travel, introduced not by bald explanations but implied by the characters and story. Kept me hungry right to the last minute.
The narrator did an excellent job of voicing the multiple characters (some speaking in first person).
Overall very glad to have listened (guardian review) and eager for more from the author

An atypical work of sci~fi.

The Tourist, by Robert Dickinson, is a brilliant work of science-fiction; and yet, it is so much more than just an average book of pop sci-fi. That explains why it gets much fewer stars than those it really deserves in the reviews: a typical fan of sci-fi apparently does not feel comfortable when confronted with such an atypical work of sci-fi.

The Tourist is, first and foremost, a multilayered critique of so many things that so many people (self-proclaimed non-conformists sci-fi fans included) hold dear. For one thing, Dickinson’s refined contempt of our beloved conveniences and fascinations is a piquant treat for any trained palate. Other than that, The Tourist is a sophisticated (and not, yet again, a “mindboggling”), a caustic (and not just a “witty”), an amusing (and not for funk's sake an “entertaining”), a sui generis (and not another one “slipstream”) novel. All in all, The Tourist, by Robert Dickinson, is anything but yet another folk-sci-fi book from the steadily growing bulk of relevant publications.

I am looking forward to seeing the rest of Robert Dickinson’s novels in the Audible’s catalogue.
