  • "Confused and annoyed"

    Overall

    I, too, am confused by these reviews. Honestly the best audible book? I find all the vocal talent incomprehensible. The first seems to be trying to speak in some sort of welsh, lyrical cadence that completely mismatches the text. Applied to a fantasy work full of new words and terms, it made no sense to me. The other talent sounds like a speaker for promotional audio -- radio commercials, maybe.

    I'm very disappointed with the content and can't finish it. I feel cheated and annoyed.

    I'm confused by the hugely positive reviews. Is it a case of 'love it or hate it'??

  • "The Golden Age"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    As a Robot Fan, An Asimov Fan and a Sci-Fi history fan, I had to get this. It starts out with a lengthy telling of the difference between this I, Robot and Asimov's I Robot. A little Science Fiction History that I enjoyed hearing. The story is dated, but it was a good story, that led to the robot as a good guy. The production has music which I felt added to the mood of the story. I know some people don't like added music, but I liked it.

    If you are a true Science Fiction Fan, you need this in your collection.

    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    Are vampires a bloodthirsty menace to mankind? Or simply misunderstood creatures struggling to survive? After hearing these six entertaining stories, you'll be able to decide for yourself. From the horrifying to the humorous, some of today's finest authors share stories about one of the oldest imagined evils, the vampire. From Tanith Lee's chilling story to Esther Friesner's comic tale of rival teens trying to best one another, these stories bring vampires to (un)life, in all their majesty and terror.

Just as he knows the girl feels it. Laying down their arsenal of weapons will leave them both vulnerable. The cost of a moment of intimacy may lead to the last moments of their lives. And what to do when the act is over, and both their minds turn back to murder.
