Summary

George R. R. Martin's alternate-history story revolves around one of six "geeks" sent back to a critical point in history. Their mission is to prevent the Swedish fortress of Sveaborg from surrendering to the Russians in order to win the war - or "maybe [to] just save ourselves from the plagues and bombs and the poisoned winds".

An interesting little story

This is an imaginative story. Fans of Game of Thrones will see a very different side to Martin here. It's not a classic story or anything. But it's unique, in an interesting setting and certainly delivers an engaging, if short dose of dark sci fi.

Grows on you

Narrator has a weird style but he and the story grows on you as we learn more about the time-travelling 'Geek' programme. A little dark and gritty and not for everyone but a great story from a pedigree author.

Shorter than I would have liked but still good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to a friend if they enjoyed George R. R. Martin's writing style and story telling. It was not a masterpiece by any means but the characters had a good amount of depth for them considering it is a short book.

What three words best describe Pat Bottino’s performance?

Way too slow.
