  • The Cassandra Project

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Jack McDevitt, Mike Resnick
    • Narrated By Brian Holsopple
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Early in his career, Jerry Culpepper could never have been accused of being idealistic. Doing public relations—even for politicians—was strictly business...until he was hired as NASA’s public affairs director and discovered a client he could believe in. Proud of the agency’s history and sure of its destiny, he was thrilled to be a part of its future—a bright era of far-reaching space exploration.

    What did you like best about The Cassandra Project? What did you like least?

    interesting if slow read but then the "end" seems to not be an end - and the audible transition of this is only part of the book is given at the end of the second part of a presumably two part book - so what gives!!! somewhere there is a mistake - either on audibles side by putting a transition tape at the end of a book or there is a third part, which seems more likely given where it "ended", and that part is missing from audibles library - in any case until the mistake is sorted out (get rid of the transition or add the third part) do not buy

    Do you think The Cassandra Project needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    are you kidding - yes if that is in fact the end that is there - but then even the folks at audible found it very confusing by putting a transistion statement at the end of a book to what?????

  • Torn

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Jacqueline Druga
    • Narrated By Andrew Wehrlen

    Darius Cobb wasn't thinking of man's extinction. He honestly never gave it a thought. A college professor and part time country singer, Darius worried only about teaching and playing his guitar until the day he is attacked by cockroaches and is placed into a special government quarantine. There, he and the others start piecing together the inevitable. Using his knowledge, he begins predicting the events that unfold. Together he and his group plan and then implement a long term survival plan.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "End of the world with typical craziness"
    "good background story if some weakness"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the various scientists as that was what was interesting to me

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Wehrlen?

    anybody - he is the worst narrator I have ever heard - I always wondered why people complained about a narrator as basic reading skills was fine by me but this guy made it hard to listen to the book - the pace was way too fast, the voices he used too often did not ring true

    Was Torn worth the listening time?

    yes, i like this genre of book

    Any additional comments?

    the author is weak in building interpersonal relationships which just don't make sense or rather don't ring true but the background story of superstorm and how to plan for it was interesting - the ending was a hoot!!!

  • One Second After

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By William R. Forstchen
    • Narrated By Joe Barrett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "sobbering must read"

    If you utterly familiar with EMP or with the idea the the US is amazingly vulnerable on so many levels than don't bother - but if you have the basic idea but not the historically accurate projections then read on - terrific, spellbinding and so what if the main character is molded after the author - who cares - or if not - that is not the point and nothing to base a review upon as I read before I decided that indeed this was a book i wanted to read

Can't get enough of James Patterson's distinctive thrillers? Browse more Patterson titles.

    Gayle says: "what a bizarre story"
    "suspense and new look at virgin births"

    great book - totally absorbed all the way through - you have to like the topic but if you do it delivers

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    • ABRIDGED (12 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Audrey Niffenegger
    • Narrated By Maggi-Meg Reed, Christopher Burns

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "The Time Traveler's Wife"

    This is a wonderful story of time travel which departs from typical male perspective of science and technology and considers the relationships and the impact of such multi-time lines on the development of a relationship. At the same time it captures the notion of time being all at once ultimately and manages to keep the reader on track with various devices like telling us the ages of the major characters at each turn. It's emergent quality and sensativity to relationship brings a sense of authenticity missing in so many time travel novels. I very highly recommend it.
