    First published in 1970, nine years after Hemingway's death, this is the story of an artist and adventurer, a man much like Hemingway himself. Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson, from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini through his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.

    Paul says: "Best presentation of any audiobook ever."

    Story

    The story told here focused light on the life of one man at three different periods. His life with his loves, his life with his sons, followed by his life as a fighter for his beliefs during WW II. Through out these phases of his life he was not a man who would not back down from trouble or himself nor would he fail a friend. The descriptions of the interactions between himself and his sons were particularly riveting for me with one hell of a fish story as a part of this. This book brought home all the things I remember the old guys from the WW II era talking about when I was growing up and helped put in perspective some of what made that generation that generation. I am now hooked on Hemingway and intend to read and listen to his other stories. In simple English this is a real good story.

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Story

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Devin says: "Great Epic Scifi"

    So many characters, civilizations, scientific possibilities with multiple plots. This is a great Si-Fi story worth the listening.
