    Leo Graf was just your average highly efficient engineer: mind your own business, fix what's wrong, and move on to the next job. But all that changed on his assignment to the Cay Habitat, where a group of humanoids had been secretly, commercially bioengineered for working in free fall. Could he just stand there and allow the exploitation of hundreds of helpless children merely to enhance the bottom line of a heartless mega-corporation?

    Where does Falling Free rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While not in the top 10, this was a good listen and well worth the credit


    Any additional comments?

    Well told, good character development and interest. Left me wanting to know what happens to the characters after the end of this book.
    I was recommended this book as the first in the Vorkosigan series, but, as far as I can tel (just starting to listen to a proper Vorkosigan book), I don't see any real connection.

    Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

    This is great material, and the audiobook is a good adjunct to the written work. I was disappointed by how much the audiobook is abridged from the written.
    The big plus to the audio version is being able to the actual interviews.

  • The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1

    Story
    (1794)

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Teddy says: "Fun KIDS Book"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    Entertaining for adults as well as my 7 and 9 year old boys!
