    The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doomed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-blooded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Culture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender. Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it....

    Hyacinth says: "The Culture is a magnificent and enticing vision."
    "Starts with a bang, ends with a whimper."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would make me care about the characters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something that isn't a part of the Culture series.


    What does Peter Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    An accent.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably. The scope is epic.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish it were better.

    (8491)

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "More of the same, exactly what I wanted."

    Story

    The complete "box set" of T. H. White's epic fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. The novel is made up of five parts: "The Sword in the Stone", "The Witch in the Wood", "The Ill-Made Knight", "The Candle in the Wind", and "The Book of Merlyn".

    Bookoholics Anon says: "Fabulous reading, epic story and a new chapter!"
    "Great stories, albeit a little meandering."

    All in all, a great listen, although you often wonder what the point of many of the story's diversions are.

    Story

    Three New York Times reporters uncover the truth about biological weapons. In a frightening and unforgettable narrative of cutting-edge science and spycraft, Germs reconstructs the former Soviet and Iraqi germ warfare programs, and how they affected U.S. policy. "Chilling," says Booklist.

    Seth says: "It's Judith Miller."

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have preferred a text more focused on current trends and historical facts and less focused on justifying anything any Bush Administration has ever done.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    The fact that in the end, it's still an apologia for government paternalism.
