If it is possible to conquer space, then perhaps it is also possible to conquer time. At least that was the theory American scientists were exploring in an effort to explain the new sources of knowledge the Russians possessed. Perhaps Russian scientists had discovered how to transport themselves back in time in order to learn long-forgotten secrets of the past. That was why young Ross Murdock, above average in intelligence but a belligerently independent nonconformist, found himself on a "hush-hush" government project at a secret base in the Arctic. The very qualities that made him a menace in civilized society were valuable traits in a man who must successfully act the part of a merchant trader of the Beaker people during the Bronze Age. For once they were transferred by time machine to the remote Baltic region where the Russian post was located, Ross and his partner Ashe were swept into a fantastic action-filled adventure involving Russians, superstitious prehistoric men, and the aliens of a lost galactic civilization that demanded every ounce of courage the Americans possessed.
To you who have compalined: should be ashamed to complain so much!. I do not see your nake reading the texts. Sure the reader has made mistakes, but at least you got (free) a book to read. i could not do as well as the reader, but even if I could I do not have the time. Be appreciative and not so critical unless you rewplace the story with your own words. The book was understandable, and complete. The reader has a distinct Southhern accent, but is untimatly easy to understand. The story itself is wll written and interesting.
In Version one the reader is awful
Version one the reader is awful, but version 2 is the same reader as most Edgar Rice Burroughs books - he is articulate and pleasant.
Probably a good story, but the narrator is horrible. He constantly mis-pronounces words (examples: he pronounces taciturn as TACK-i-turn, aromatic as AROMA-tick). He inserts pauses into sentences, then starts in the middle as a new sentence, destroying any continuity of the thought. He reads in a mono-tone, no inflection or sensible cadence. He almost sounds as if he has never read in this language, and is phonetically sounding out all the words. The sound quality is terrible, there is a very high-pitched whine all through the story. Lastly, he speaks as if his cheeks are too large for his mouth - slurred and garbled. The narrator ruined a good story.... too bad. This should be re-recorded.
Might be a good story but the recording is so poor it's not worth listening to.
Unfortunately the recording quality is very poor.
I couldn't believe they would let him read this book He sounds like he recorded it in his basement an with mouth full of marbles
