๏ ๏ ๏  MY RATING ๏ ๏ ๏ 


(Rating for Luffs 3STARS - GRADE=C)

๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

Transcendence is a time-travel romance that focuses on the romance more than the science behind the time-travel.  I also don't believe its main goal is to be historically accurate, despite that it is loved by many.  I listened to Transcendence and read Luffs.  Narration for Transcendence was very good for the content.  Chris Chambers performed a decent prehistoric caveman.  He made me laugh, a lot, Hoh!

While I wasn't blown away by this, I did enjoy it.  I started the companion novella when I discovered its existence, thinking it would help me to not be so frustrated by their lack of communication.  I just wanted to know, at least a little bit, of what Beh was feeling and thinking.   I also wondered if she knew right from the start, that she traveled through time.  Thankfully, the novella delivered on that and made the experience of Transcendence slightly more gratifying than it would have been on its own.  Also, I really liked the way the ending played out.  Although...I really wanted a dinosaur or two...
