    Overall

    I have been a keen Rat reader for over 30 years. In recent times I have switched to audion books a bit more and was delighted to see my old friend Slippery Jim making a comeback in the updated audio format, and not before time. This is the first in the series of Rat books and one of the best, the narrator does a fine job with all the characters and story. Old time Rat fans like me will love it, newbees will have a chance to discover one of the best sci-fi characters ever written. Enjoy.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    A fantastic job by the narrator, he really brought the tiresome story to life.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    I normally avoid King due to the endless padding in his books, this one was no diffirent.


    Any additional comments?

    A plodding story that was really saved by the fantastic job of the narrator. The story is beautifully written, you can't deny King's writing skills. It could have been a great book but suffered the usual endless padding of all King books.

    Eccentric Sunset Tuttle spent his life searching in vain for forms of alien life. Thirty years after his death, a stone tablet inscribed with cryptic, indecipherable symbols is found in the possession of Tuttle's onetime lover, and antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is anxious to discover what secret the tablet holds. It could be proof that Tuttle had found what he was looking for.

    Overall

    I'm a huge fan of the Alex Benedict series, so was naturally delited to see that there was a new book comming out. The story is excellent, up to McDevitt's usual high standards however one thing did annoy me a great deal. For some reason known ony to the publishers thay have a male narrating a book that is dictated by a female character. The last 3 books in the series was narrated by Jennifer VanDyck, who did a great job, yet for some reason they have a male doing this one???. Anyway it's a great story worthy of all the others in the series.

    Britain's bestselling SF writer returns to outer space.In AD 2329, humanity has colonised over four hundred planets, all of them interlinked by wormholes. With Earth at its centre, the Intersolar Commonwealth now occupies a sphere of space approximately four hundred light years across.When an astronomer on the outermost world of Gralmond, observes a star 2000 light years distant - and then a neighbouring one - vanish, it is time for the Commonwealth to discover what happened to them.

    Terry says: "Long Winded But Enjoyable"
    "Long Winded But Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Pandora's star is no light read (or should I say listen to), be prepared for a long haul that seems to take, at times forever to get where it's going. You may well believe that Mr Hamilton is paid per page as this detailed at at times rambling tale trundles along the tracks. However the author manages to invent a truly engaging and detailed Universe where Humanity despite being able to practially live forever is in true danger of being wiped out by an alien menace.

    However understand that this is only the first part of the series, it isn't a stand alone book. So take the ride, settle in, give it a chance and I think you will enjoy this tale a great deal, the narrator does a fine job of bringing all the characters to life and the story, while long winded this is a very enjoyable one.

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Dionne says: "perfectly executed!"
    "A Good Read"
    Overall

    Asimov wrote many great books, the Foundation series is perhaps one of the finest sci-fi series written to date. His other major works include the robot series of whitch The Caves Of Steel is a very important addition. As far as a detective murder mystery goes it's pretty basic, but the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing the world and characters to life. Definatly worth your time.
