Audiobook Review: Time to Lie by Phil Taylor

Time to Lie
(Landon Bridges' Story, Book 1)
By Phil Taylor
Narrated by Jeffrey Kafer

Blurb

Remember that time you dated that complete nutcase and said to yourself, "I wish Future Me would have come back and warned me about this"? Remember when you and your drunk friends said, "If it's such a bad idea, someone would come back from the future and stop us", right before it blew up in your face and got you in trouble? It would be great to have someone from the future to guide your life, wouldn't it?

Landon Bridges' life hasn't always been perfect, but now he's in college and determined to make a fresh start and transform himself from high school geek to college chic...well, less geeky guy. He's finally attained his life-long goal of studying physics in college under a renowned professor. He's met the girl of his dreams and made friends with some of the cool frat guys. Things are going great, until he shows up.

A mysterious stranger intervenes to help Landon out of a terrible, possibly life changing situation, but what does he want? Why does he keep showing up? Who is he? Landon's esteemed professor suddenly seems like a flake. Landon's briefly idyllic college world seems to be spinning out of control. Landon needs to control his world and, in the process of regaining his sanity and his grip on reality, he discovers that he has talents and allies that he never imagined. But is what they're telling him the truth?

The truth is just the lie we've chosen to believe, and yours may be different than mine.

Viviana's Review:
I really enjoyed TIME TO LIE. Landon was a hoot! His internal monologue was a riot! I also loved how the fourth wall was broken a few times.

We are in the same boat as Landon is when it comes to learning about his talents. This helps with the "showing" vs. "telling" of the story. We go along for the ride as Landon does and its an interesting ride! This was a unique take on the "time traveling" concept, which I throughly enjoyed.

Take the time travel element away and you still have good, solid story of college student finding his path in life and how those he surrounds himself with impact his life and choices! However, the time travel element adds volumes to the interactions and relationships once the twists and turns are revealed!!

This is a perfect example of when a good story is paired with an awesome narrator! Jeffrey's brilliant performance elevated the story and added a layer of realism to the characters! He provides distinct voices to every character and it was easy to follow them around.

Overall, this story had action, mystery, suspense, romance and it all made for a great story. I wanted more when the end was reached! I can't wait for the second book!! 


Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It!!
