    Story
    Would you try another book from Emma Donoghue and/or Michael Cunningham?

    This is not the audible book and should be renamed something that describes what it is exactly. I'll now go buy the Kindle book and read it. I thought I scored finding an audible book for less then the kindle book. I feel ripped off for what I paid.


    What other book might you compare Thalia Book Club: Emma Donoghue's 'Room' to and why?

    the real book


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Any additional comments?

  • "An Interview with Campbell & Moon"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    This is a short (17 min) interview with Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon. I have listened to Campbell Lost Fleet series and am now listening to JAG in Space and have enjoyed them. So I was interested in hearing more about him and his writing. I had never heard of Elizabeth Moon is was intrigued by her. Apparently she was in the U.S. Marines and writes fantasy as well as military Sci Fi. She discuss the various series she writes I was interested in Vatta's War a military Sci Fi and will see if Audible has it. I did not learn a great deal about them as the interview was too short but they did discuss about how they go about writing and how the characters changed from their original ideas. This is worth the listen and it is free.
