George and the Ship of Time Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of George and the Ship of Time by Lucy Hawking, read by Roy McMillan and Sophie Aldred.
When George finds a way to escape the spacecraft Artemis, where he has been trapped, he is overjoyed. Surely now he can return to Earth.
But when George touches down, he knows immediately that something is wrong. There’s a barren wasteland where his home town used to be, intelligent robots roam the streets and no one will talk to George about the Earth that he used to know. With the help of an unexpected new friend, can George find out what - or who - is behind this terrible new world before it’s too late?

Overall it's quite a disappointing end.

Plot is a mashup of The Time Machine, Terminator, and Hunger Games. Felt very unoriginal. The new villain ‘Trellis Dump’ is a caricature of Donald Trump which joke goes completely over the head of children and seemed out of place in the story, but more importantly I don’t want to read about Trump.
Plot is dystopian and rather depressing. George is in the future and has lost his family, who stay lost and we have to assume his parents are dead. His best friend Annie is old. The author ignores all the emotional impact of this in a very unrealistic way, but more importantly my child is upset by such ideas. It is no longer light entertainment. Felt more like a young adult book, except that the hero is so young.
Ending is abrupt and leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
Didn’t think much of the extra sections at the end, especially the defence of war and why war can be good - felt rather creepy and brainwashy in a child’s book.
Regret buying, will attempt to ‘lose’ this before son gets to the end.
I tried at least twice to read this book , but stopped for the same reason: its simplicity, contrasting with the expectations raised by the name.
