Summary

Jack Rybicki is a high school senior who loves his girl, likes to party, and doesn't have much of a plan for his life.

Then fate plucks him from obscurity and Jack, now renamed Jack Noble by his management team, becomes one of the most famous people on the planet.

A teenager who likes to indulge himself with limitless resources is not the best recipe for a successful life.

But, it's never too late in Middle Falls.

Includes a special bonus note read by the author. Like all books in the series, it can be listened to as a standlone story.

Great stuff

One of the better books in this series. And the best one since book 2 in this series.
However, it's the performance of the narrator I want to pay particular respect to. Nick Podei. He was one of the best narrators I've heard from any audiobook reading. I loved everything about his reading. His accents and expressions that captured the moods and feelings of the conversations and thoughts of the characters, made this book all the more fun to follow.

Another fine dip into the Middle Falls series

While you can read any of these in any order I think it is a good idea to read them in order as former characters tend to pop up from time to time. If you enjoy time travel or past lives types of stories then you owe it to yourself to check out the Middle Falls time travel series.

The same, but different

Ok, I was worried about this one for a while but then chapter 35 hit like a stack of Middle Falls books. From that point on things really got interesting. The universe these books create is really intriguing and develops endless scenarios and possibilities. This is one of them. Great story.

This is one of the better middle falls books!

Shawn Inmon redeemed himself. This book is a easy flowing and a great ending book. I thought he put more thought into this character and it shows.

Good

It was entertaining, but one thing bothered me. The title on the book spells the name as "Rybicki," and the story has the main character spell his name out as "Rybicky."

Good read

Excellent character development. Wonderful performance. This book was a good use of my time. I appreciate that the author took the time to make sure the audience got to know the town and the characters.

Another McBook Knocked Out!

Fast food can be satisfy a craving, but I require more of a gourmet feast for my mind!

Decent narration, a predictable story that had nothing fresh or exciting about it, and in fact the last part of the book was slightly muddled, rushed and certain aspects didn't make any sense whatsoever and just seemed to be added to end the tale so that it was all tied up sweetly in a perfect bow which ruined the entire thing for me!
The so called love story that was centred around the whole book was pretty weak, and there was nothing especially unique or powerful about it that made it stand out, it was nothing more than a first love story that was milked to the max, and that should have ended for good so that new experiences could have been had by both.
I've enjoyed most of the series, but like a rich chocolate if you eat too much of it you will eventually get nauseous and will avoid it to try something new and nicer tasting!

The Best Thing About It!

These are all great stories and performances. You won't go wrong listening to any of them.
The best thing of all is hearing them get it right in the end regardless of (because of) all that came before.
It gives me hope and makes me want to get on with the rest of my life.
That's a pretty good thing.

Another feel-good entry

I listened to this on Audible Plus Library.

Another satisfying feel-good entry into the series, with another great audio narrator.

I thought the last few had long first lives--this one is even longer. I am still enjoying the explorations of different time periods and different industries within them--and with this we get a teeny bit of a different culture too with a character from a Polish immigrant family. Someday I'd love to see one of these books explore something other than white middle-to-upper-class characters.

This book also raises more questions (or answers them, depending on your mindset) on how all of the characters resets interact with each other. I've come to the conclusion that this is a multiverse, and every possible combination exists. The author is just telling us the story of this iteration of Jack #1 and #2 etc which overlaps with Thomas #2 and more. There's a version of Jack #1 which overlaps with Thomas #1, and one that overlaps with Michael #83, but that's just not the story we're seeing today.
