Publisher's Summary

When Nigel Walden is 14, the Unhappenings begin. His first girlfriend disappears the day after their first kiss with no indication she ever existed. This retroactive change is the first of many only he seems to notice. Several years later, when Nigel is visited by two people from his future, he hopes they can explain why the past keeps rewriting itself around him. But the enigmatic young guide shares very little, and the haggard, incoherent, elderly version of himself is even less reliable. His search for answers takes him 52 years forward in time, where he finds himself stranded and alone. And then he meets Helen. Brilliant, hilarious, and beautiful, she captivates him. But Nigel's relationships always unhappen, and if they get close it could be fatal for her. Worse, according to the young guide, just by entering Helen's life, Nigel has already set into motion events that will have catastrophic consequences. In his efforts to reverse this, and to find a way to remain with Helen, he discovers the disturbing truth about the unhappenings and the role he and his future self have played all along.
Equal parts time travel adventure and tragic love story, Unhappenings is a tale of gravely bad choices and Nigel's struggle not to become what he sees in the preview of his worst self.

Well whiten and interesting character

A good listen which can be quite addictive. For me it was spoiled a little by allowing "different frames of reference" to explain why the universe absorbs paradoxes. The end also was a little disappointing. Don't let that put you of though. The journey is more important than the destination and this one has strange new worlds and quests aplenty.

Oh dear so much promise

Well got to the end finally!! potential good idea but more holes than a Swiss cheese
At least Jodi Taylor has the presence to add humour as her time travelling opus the St Mary's series! failing to allow for any laws, consequences of messing up or including any trips forward backs in time! This is a disjointed tale of a group of people I couldn't give a fig about whether they lived died or lived again
Sorry not for me! Writing about time travel is a complicated subject especially if you are delving into various scenarios with multiple time lines
Just my opinion it might be for you
