    "I've been told that the entire continent of Antarctica groaned at the moment of my birth. The howl tore across glaciers, over mountains and deep into the ice. Everyone says so. Except for my father; all he heard was Mother's sobs. Not of pain, but of joy, so he says. Other than that, the only verifiable fact about the day I was born is that an iceberg the size of Los Angeles broke free from the ice shelf a few miles off the coast."

    It took a long time time to setup the main plot.


    Would you recommend The Last Hunter - Descent to your friends? Why or why not?

    It was entertaining but slow moving and very far fetched plot.

    I have not heard any other performances.


    Did The Last Hunter - Descent inspire you to do anything?

    no

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    Story
    (1967)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    What disappointed you about Doctor Who?

    It did not flow as well as the television episodes. This did not have the same feel as Dr. Who.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who?

    Confronting the woman on the bridge. No spoilers.


    What didn’t you like about David Tennant’s performance?

    David Tennant is so distinctive it is hard to hear him perform the other characters. This would have been better as a full cast audio style book.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Doctor who, I like audio books, and I thought this would be a great pairing but it just did not transfer well to this medium. I think part of the Doctors comic success is playing off of a straight man (serious character) and that is hard to do with one narrator.

    Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines. When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Where does Fuzzy Nation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was an a very good story with good narrators. I think it is one of the better stories I have listened to but not the best.


    What about Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) ’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was very good at conveying the different characters and emotions. Wil Wheaton was better then the second narrator at differentiating between characters.


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

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had listened to the original first before hearing the updated version. Both stories were good and it was interesting to compare the two.
