    After the alien virus struck humanity in the wake of World War II, a handful of the survivors found they possessed superhuman powers. The Wild Cards shared-world volumes tell their story. Here in book two, we trace these heroes and villains through the tumultuous 1980s, in stories from SF and fantasy giants such as George R. R. Martin, Roger Zelazny, Pat Cadigan, Lewis Shiner, Walter Jon Williams, and others.

    Porter R. Rawls says: "Great performance with a classic"
    "What A Wild Ride!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I found myself absolutely fascinated by the characters and their interweaving stories. I would love to know others who have read it to talk about it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way all the connected plot lines each had their own feel and context since they were by different authors that seems logical, but I'd be interested to know how on earth (or not!) the collaborated to have the overall story move so smoothly.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    I think I liked the Turtle best - he had such a rough time finding his true power, but when he found it he found a way to become more of a person too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think the moments when the Turtle and the Doctor confronted each other, both in the first book and in this one were great moments to explore what it means to be a human and to live one's life authentically.


    Any additional comments?

    Read them both - Wild Cards and Wild Cards II:Aces High. They're wonderful books that I can see as a superhero-type movie or even a tv series. I can totally picture Robin Williams as the doctor.
