    It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public. But there are rumors that something has survived.

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

    This book is nothing like the movie. After finishing the book i saw the movie again and maybe 5% of the book was used in the movie. Not even the major plot is the same.

    If you liked the first movie and the first book definitely read this book. It is very detailed and keeps the listener interested all the way through

    For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.

    Would you listen to Starcraft II: Heaven's Devils again? Why?

    The characters are very interesting and you learn a lot about Raynor, Kydd and Findlay.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tried to listen to the book about 4 times but the first hour or so did not catch my interest. After deciding to listen it all the way through i listen to it in two sittings. After the first hour/hour and a half you are introduced to more characters and the story becomes more interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book for Starcraft lore lovers. If lore doesn't interest you, dont listen to it. If you are looking for a good si-fi story, look else where.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    What made the experience of listening to The Passage the most enjoyable?

    The reading was performance was great and the story kept me interested.


    Any additional comments?

    I first started reading The Passage as paperback and the first third of the book was great and a real page turner. During the middle third i got tired of the story and the characters. I switched to the audiobook version and the performance was great. The last third of the book became really interesting again.
    Looking forward to the next part. This time i will only listen to it.

    In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

    After reading Wilson's Robopocalypse I was looking forward to a new book from him. This book is really good but doesn't have the spark that makes it a great book like Robopocalypse.

    It is an interesting book and i would recommend it.
