The Time Traders, (Version 2)


Read by Mark Nelson

(4.5 stars; 280 reviews)

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.

Reviews

very well read

(4 stars)

Excellent reading of a good book. As with most Norton books I've heard, they are good sci if but she always ends them at the plot convenience store and way to fast after a long build up

Left the story hanging

(4 stars)

It was a nice science fiction story. I like the reader alot, with the pace, and tone of his voice.

The Time Traders

(5 stars)

Great story, long enough to make sure you get a good idea of what was, is, and could be, but not to long so as to become or carry into a different path or story. I really enjoyed this one

Fun Book-Well Read

(4.5 stars)

It has been many years since I have read an Andre Norton book. This one was lots of fun, with an interesting concept on the use of time travel. The book was very well read.

(4 stars)

a wonderfully narrated series, very well read. it's a great look into where science fiction comes from. I haven't read the version updated by Norton in the year 2000, but the classic book is also a good read for cold winter nights like these.

ok story

The reading was done perfectly. Just kind of hard for me to stay interested and focused on what was going on. 4 out of 5

I have enjoyed this book when I first read in as a teen many years ago, this rendition does the material justice and a pleasure to listen.
