This does not quite live up to the original Metatropolis. The individual stories are not linked together as well. There are a couple of novellas that are harder to get into, and a few are not read as well. That being said, it is still very enjoyable. If you are a fan of Metatropplis, then this will be a welcome continuation. Just do not expect quite the same level of writing or performance.
This is a fun history of an average guy getting out of a rut in middle America by going to teach English in Japan. If you are interested in Japan and like travel stories, you will probobly enjoy this. Sections are not family friendly, but as the voice of the book is that of a 20 something out on an adventure, that should probobly be expected.
This is one of the sci-fi classics. Space battle, politics, and ethical questions are all over this book. If you enjoy those types of stories, then this should be a very enjoyable listen.
The Mists of Avalon is a modern classic. This version was cut at some odd points to create the separate audio files. This does not however detract from the quality of the reading. This would keep any fan of Arthurian legend happy for days.
No completely groundbreaking ideas, but should help you think about how you use your time. Worth the listen.
If you like the other BSG books, then you will like this story as well. However, this book is not read by the same women who take on the characters in the other main Beacon Street Girls stories. This reader is ok, but she comes across as flat compared to the quality of the reading in the rest of the series.
