    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the parts of the dialogue (external and internal) of the main characters where the aphasia comes into play. The words Mr. King uses to give the feeling of how it is to have this issue are sometimes quite unexpected but also well chosen. I can feel the meaning of what the character wants to say, but can also see an underlining meaning. I love the layers to the book in general and the dialogues in particular.


    What about John Slattery’s performance did you like?

    I quite enjoyed his performance. Mr. Slattery often delivers his reading with much of the same rhythms and cadences Mr. King does when he reads his own work.

    The wickedest, most wonderful science fiction story ever created in our - or any - time. Anything can begin at a party in California - and everything does in this bold masterwork by a grand master of science fiction. When four supremely sensual and unspeakably cerebral humans - two male, two female - find themselves under attack from aliens who want their awesome quantum breakthrough, they take to the skies - and zoom into the cosmos on a rocket roller-coaster ride of adventure, danger, ecstasy, and peril.

    Michelle says: "I've been waiting for this book in audio format..."
    "Classic late Heinlein."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Number of the Beast again? Why?

    Although I will probably listen to this again, as I usually listen to my Heinlein often, it won't be any time soon. Having four narrators was probably the best way to present the four different viewpoints, but the narrator for DeeTee sounded too much like a little girl and didn't pull off the male voices as well as the other female narrator.

    Farmer In The Sky is a 1953 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about a teenage boy who emigrates with his family to Jupiter's moon Ganymede, which is in the process of being terraformed. A condensed version of the novel was published in serial form in 1950 in Boys' Life magazine (August, September, October, November), under the title "Satellite Scout".

    If you like Heinlein, you'll enjoy this. I'm glad that the estate is releasing more and more of his stories on audio!

    A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race. One survivor, strangely immune to the effects of the epidemic, ventures forward to experience a world without man. What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

    J. Rhoderick says: "Brilliant, beautiful, sad, terrifying"
    "Timeless!"

    Story

    I really enjoyed listening to this story! Stewart wrote a timeless tale about what would happen just a few generations after the fall of civilization that focuses on the nature of man and our conditioning as much as what will happen to what we've made. One man's journey to an end that isn't a blaze of glory but the everyday end that so many of us will relate too.
    I probably should write reviews so soon after listening, but sometimes a story just moves us and we have to speak. This is one of those stories.

    America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight.

    Glenn says: "Good Story Line"

    Story

    Although I haven't even finished the first half, I can already tell this wasn't the best choice for me. The author has a definate conservative and (christian) religious bent. As a liberal non-christian, I'm just glad that he's not as preachy as LeHaye.
