    I really enjoyed this next instalment of ‘The Middle Falls’ time travel series. Regular readers of my blog will notice that I am gradually working my way through the series. Whilst some books I have been disappointed in, Joe Hart’s story was enjoyable, emotional and just a bit sad in places. In this book, our time traveller is all about helping others. In fact, for the majority of the story he is trying to prevent deaths from occurring.

Regular readers of my blog will notice that I am gradually working my way through the series. Whilst some books I have been disappointed in, Joe Hart’s story was enjoyable, emotional and just a bit sad in places. In this book, our time traveller is all about helping others. In fact, for the majority of the story he is trying to prevent deaths from occurring. Opening with the death of his father, following with the eventual death of his mother, and then leading to Joe’s reincarnation, it was difficult to avoid the sadness leaping from the pages. The theme of death is prevalent throughout this short story and I think this is a reflection of Inmon’s own personal life. Joe is quite a credible hero and tries hard to save his friends from being killed by a natural disaster. Along the way, he also saves a family from death and this moment touches Joe throughout the entire narrative. However, Inmon dabbles heavily in popular culture and the climax of the story is undoubtedly when Hart prevents the shooting of John Lennon. Being a bit before my time (!), I was intrigued to understand more about this time period. I do realise that this is a fictionalisation, but it did encourage me to do my own research once I had completed the story. The popular culture references made this story more realistic. I have enjoyed these elements in the previous stories and glad that the writer decided to continue doing so. Given that this is a novel about time travel, these references are essential, particularly as characters like Joe are reliving moments again. Once again, characters from different parts of the series make an appearance. I was surprised that the “fantastical forces”, the spirits who seem to know more about the time travel, did not make a stronger impact on the story. Whilst I relished in seeing familiar faces (and those who are due to come in later stories), I feel frustrated still that more has not been elaborated on those watching the time travellers. Indeed, I think Inmon probably has enough material to write an story just on these “spirits” alone! Joe works hard to make an impact with his “new” life and tries to make the most of this second chance. When he realises how he came to die, I found this part awkward and difficult to believe. It was odd to read how Joe suddenly understands everything about his original death, with the only clues appearing to be a series of “removed” memories. It didn’t make much sense how Joe learns about the cause of his death when there was no one around and I feel like the writer could have put this part in the narrative a bit less forcefully. I am sure Hart could have reached this realisation from the visit from Carrie, his spiritual watcher? The amount of death in this story does make it quite a bleak read. It made me feel sorry for Hart and there never seems to be any closure; death dominates and whilst Joe appears to deal with his grief, it feels like there is a constant cloud hanging over the narrative. In comparison to the rest of the stories, this book felt more pessimistic than the rest and the theme of loneliness radiated off of the pages. Reinvigorating my interest in the series, I will certainly carry on reading these books. Having seen an appearance from Scott Mckenzie, who comes in the following story, I will be interested to learn his background. I just hope that his narrative does not repeat some of Joe’s story! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Another good one is this series. I enjoy these so much as they are such an easy read. Although I read this out of order it didn’t matter at all as they are all so good.

    Notes: Books #1-12 - Currently on Audible Plus Cool connections to other characters within the series, a slightly different perspective on the Watchers/Immortals/Angels and nice setting references based on objects, music & events. Overall, the story about Joe Hart is a feel good story, but the plot progression was too even and made exciting scenes seem dull.

    This was as good as the first three books! I've loved all the books in this series so far but I've loved four and five a little less than the others. I plan to keep on going until there are no more books in this series left to read. And then I'll eagerly anticipate the next one. This was as good as the first three books!

    Just like some of the other reviews as well as one of my previous reviews of an earlier entry in this series, it may be running out of steam. If i were to read this book without having read the entire series, i would have gave this book a 3.5, but several books in and this one fell flat. I will of course finish the series but hoping for a change of pace along the way to add a little spice and variety.

    "People can’t believe the impossible. Even when you prove the impossible isn’t really impossible, they still can’t believe." Another brilliant character in the town of Middle Falls. This was more akin to the first story in the series. It was more focused on the protagonist being the hero. Attempting to save his friends, strangers and even John Lennon. I think because of that I didn't get as emotionally caught up with Joe as I have some of the others. I felt the same about Thomas Weaver. However, "People can’t believe the impossible.

I think because of that I didn't get as emotionally caught up with Joe as I have some of the others. I felt the same about Thomas Weaver. However, that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the story, far from it. I absolutely love this series, it always has a great moral message. Thomas Weaver showed me that sometimes a small decision can be a life changer, for better or worse. Michael Hollister made it clear that people have a past, nobody is born how they are, life has shaped them. Everyone deserves a second chance. Dominic Davidner shows us that we should always stay loyal even if it's a risk. Nathaniel moon makes us see fame in a different light and that we should never ignore our calling. Veronica McAllister (my favourite so far) discovered that money, even when given away to people we love, doesn't make us fulfilled. And finally Joe hart was selfish, depressed and alone, not realizing happiness doesn't take a lot, it only takes sharing love with people that need it. These characters have become a family, I have lived many lifetimes with them and no doubt when the sad day comes when this series is over. I will no doubt revisit my old friend Thomas Weaver for a second time.

Reborn, he has another chance to do better, and (unlike the first five books in this series) alter history. Specifically, he tries to save people before Mount St. Helens erupted and John Lennon is assassinated—both in 1980. There are surprises along the way in this time-travel, alternative-history novel, with the main theme the search for meaning and happiness (as was the case with the best other novels in the series, The Emancipation of Veronica McAllister and The Redemption of Michael Hollister). Inmon is a terrific writer, who depicts characters well, and like the main character in this novel has a great heart! The book is a real page-turner, which I read in one day!

    I listened to this on audible plus. The narrators for the series continue to do excellent jobs of making each individual unique and bringing the story to life. I enjoyed some of the different paths Joe Hart tries with his new lives--for one, he's the first Time Traveler to seek out a counselor or to actively try to contact others with similar experiences.

The Changing Lives of Joe Hart is the sixth book in the Middle Falls Time Travel series but can be read as a standalone novel. There is no cliffhanger ending. What did I like? The first thing that I liked is that there is a 6th book and it continues! For all of us that are hooked on the Middle Falls Time Travels, Hurray! Now, it is really hard to pick one main character from all six books that I fell in love with, so I am just going to go with the fact that I love them all. Each book has captured my heart and I can’t get enough of them. I have always loved time travel books and this method of writing it really is different and just great! Joe is the most adorable guy and so sincere, he truly wants to do things the right way and make it count. What are you going to like? Hey, this is not a cliffhanger so that is a really great plus! Joe is one of those guys that will endear you to him. His trips through time have all the right moves and he tries so hard to make it count. The storyline is captivating and grows with every page, the characters are strong and enticing with just the right touch. Shawn Inmon really knows how to put together a story with details and descriptions that are engaging, loveable and appealing to the reader. If you have not read any of the Middle Falls books, then I highly suggest that you do it today…. You won’t be sorry! I downloaded this from Kindle Unlimited.

    In this sixth book of the Middle Falls Time Travel series, our protagonist, Joe loses his life inadvertently...he does not take his own life and is not murdered. Joe's father was a musician that died on the day that Joe was born. Joe and his mother live modestly off of the royalties from his father's music.

Joe's father was a musician that died on the day that Joe was born. Joe and his mother live modestly off of the royalties from his father's music. His broken hearted mother turns to alcohol at the loss of her husband. While Joe never turned to alcohol, he became a bit of a shut-in and never really did anything with his life. Upon his first re-boot, Joe tries to save his two friends from Mt. Saint Helen's eruption as well as John Lennon, from his murder. I won't spoil the story by telling you how that ends up or how many re-boots that Joe gets. I will say he's a quicker learner than Veronica and Dominick. Joe is one of my favorite characters. He is an inherently good person. None of his second chances involved him doing anything for his own personal gain. He just wanted to be of help to others and to make a difference for other people. I think I read this book faster than any of the previous five just because I felt so vested and connected to this character. We get to meet Scott McKenzie in this book. He is the protagonist of the next book and the small preview has definitely piqued my interest. As with all other books in this series (except book 4), I very much enjoyed this book and highly recommend.

    Read in about three sittings over two days. It's winding up that I'm reading/will read all the books in the series, but out of order (and it's not been an issue), because I started out with the ones that seemed most interesting and characters from the other books keep popping up.

It has that ring of truth that the author verified in the afterword as being the one thing he'd try to change, if he had the chance to live his life over the way his characters do. The more of this series I read, the more I love it. The premise (like Ken Grimwood's "Replay") of reliving one's life with all memories and knowledge intact, is probably my favorite in all literature. I love that every book and character is a little different from each other - the replays happen at different times/ages, the characters pursue different philosophies in their replays, and some characters relive their lives dozens of times and some only relive it once. The variety is nice.

    This was a bit amateurish in that it was a bit “and then Joe did this... and then this happened ... and then this happened” The ending in particular felt quite rushed to me. I do like time travel as a trope and this falls into the category of the protagonist living and reliving their life. There is the usual debate over how one should spend second, third, fourth etc lives, with the knowledge gained in previous incarnations.

I’d say it’s probably fairly common that once basic needs are met, often because of future knowledge, the MC has to decide if he can change history and, as in this case, save John Lennon from being shot. All this was going along well until Joe meet the ‘angel’ I felt it jarred and, weirdly, it was a short scene which didn’t have any real impact, so why bother including it. I’m not sure I’ll read any more of this series... maybe if I only have the Kindle app on my phone to stave off boredom!

    For some reason - coming into this I got a little confused with Jon (from book 4) and Joe here. The name starts with the same letter and is three letters long, and I guess that was enough for me to confuse the characters (that and knowing that Jon in book 4 revealed he had multiple lives ... I thought this was his story. Not related at all!) This seemed like more of a stand-alone, although Veronica (from book 5) makes a small appearance.

While the first book definitely had Thomas tackling some changes (preventing the accident in his own life, preventing Carrie's suicide, stopping a serial killer), here Joe is trying to prevent the death of a couple of friends AND of John Lennon of the Beatles. I really liked Joe's re-lives ;)

The premise remains the same but Joe changes the outcome for more than just himself, including the killing of John Lennon.

    Perfect This was a melancholy book for me. I have come to love the Middle Falls Series and love it when older characters are mentioned living their lives, well. This book had a different feel to it, and in reading the Author's Notes, I know why. I loved this book and am, simply, sad it may be the last. My sincere condolences go out to Shawn for his losses.

    Good read! This is just my second book in the Middle Falls series that I have read. I read right through the night because it was so interesting. The author seems to be able to pull the reader in to the characters world so easily and makes it exciting to see what happens next. Can't wait to read the next installment. I think I will go back to the first book of this series to see how it all started. Good read! This is just my second book in the Middle Falls series that I have read.

    Favorite in the series I just can't put this series down and start the next one the minute I finish. This one is my favorite so far because of the John Lennon story line. I was privileged to meet John in 1964, and was devastated when I heard of his death. I finally visited the Dakota and Strawberry Fields in Central Park two years ago. Thank you Shawn for another great book. Favorite in the series I just can't put this series down and start the next one the minute I finish.

    I loved this book just as I have the others in the Middle Falls Time Travel Series. I got to sit alongside Joe whilst he made a difference to his own life whilst helping make a difference to many others As with all of Shawn Inmon's books I have not been able to put them down but at the same time never wanting them to end, I just know I could never get bored.

    Enjoyable, thought provoking , and rewarding I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The series is an adventure in life’s lessons with enjoyable stories that lead you to think and a good pace that makes them hard to put down. Even the ones that I did not expect to like have won me over and I am looking forward to reading them all.

    This was different... From the previous five books in the series. It focuses on a person who is a hermit in his first life, and then concentrates his remaining time on helping others. Great book.

    No Suicide This was a plus...and the veterans center was magical. The earlier books where someone “resets” by killing themself when they have people who will miss them is tragic. Suicide takes generations to heal, if ever.

    Another winner! Absolutely love this series! If you’ve go to the end of this one your mind has to be wondering , What would I do with a second chance,3rd or 4th. Could you get it right? Can’t wait for next one. Again housework is left undone and wearing my kindle out.

    Another adventure through middle falls. This one sees joe start over and try to make a difference, only to find that making a difference can mean more than one thing. Not my favorite of the series, but a good continuation of the saga.
