    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    What disappointed you about Lucifer's Hammer?

    I gave up after 10 hours, I couldn't take it anymore. Poor character development and a preachy condescending style turned me off. The author seems more concerned with explaining basic physics than developing the store.

    Seventy thousand years ago, the human race almost went extinct. We survived, but no one knows how.

    Until now. The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this time. The Immari are good at keeping secrets. For 2,000 years, they've hidden the truth about human evolution. They've also searched for an ancient enemy - a threat that could wipe out the human race. Now the search is over.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I would suppose someone that enjoys reading Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica for it's purely literary aspects.


    Would you be willing to try another book from A. G. Riddle? Why or why not?

    Riddle has an interesting idea. I might try the second books, but if whips around like the first to the point of confusion, I'm done. If this book were a rollercoaster, each rider would snap their neck.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Bel Davies – was your favorite?

    Kate


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Atlantis Gene?

    No scenes, I would change the flow in the latter 1/2 of the book - MAKE IT LESS CONFUSING

    These easy-to-follow guided meditations involve beautifully crafted stories with music and natural sound effects. Each track will ease you into a deep state of relaxation, where you can tap into the restoring power of meditation.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If your going to listen to a guided meditation your mind should not wander aimlessly...I found nothing of value in this series.


    What could Richard Latham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not sure this concept would ever work for meditation


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jane Warren?

    I don't think it would have mattered.


    What character would you cut from Total Relaxation?

    NA


    Any additional comments?

    A waste of a credit

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene - it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society.

    What disappointed you about Neuromancer?

    Couldn't get through it - My mind kept wandering. I could not get into the characters.


    Has Neuromancer turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not necessarily.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robertson Dean’s performances?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from Neuromancer?

    I just couldn't get into any of them.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
