    In the ancient city of Lankhmar, two men forge a friendship in battle. The red-haired barbarian Fafhrd left the snowy reaches of Nehwon looking for a new life, while the Gray Mouser, apprentice magician, fled after finding his master dead. These bawdy brothers-in-arms cement a friendship that leads them through the wilds of Nehwon facing thieves, wizards, princesses, and the depths of their desires and fears.

    "Great Storytelling"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this story and will probably go through the entire series :) The story starts of honed to a sharp edge without a wasted word and I enjoyed the way the way the asthetic of the storytelling was interwoven with the setting in the cold dark North. Then the storyline and action picked up as the setting moved onto the hot and humid southern regions, this is classic storytelling at it's best :)

    Story

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Ione says: "Interesting book, very enjoyable narration"
    "Too Self Serving"
    Overall

    I did not like Calculating God; however, I only listened to the first hour and then deleted it because I could not take it anymore. The first 15-20 minutes were good and set the stage for an interesting story but then the author became condecending and manipulated the story to lead the listener down a certain path and it reminded me of someone trying to use smoke and mirrors to make their point instead of being honest and I did not appreciate that. The concept had potential but the author kept using devices and made up facts to bolster his argument which made it loose credibility for me. The worst part is that I agree with his general premise that the world and the universe are too complex to have been conceived by mere chance but the author was so heavy handed that he lost me as a listener, save your money and buy something more interesting.
