    Mad scientists have never had it so tough. In super-hero comics, graphic novels, films, TV series, video games, and even works of what may be fiction, they are besieged by those who stand against them, devoid of sympathy for their irrational, megalomaniacal impulses to rule, destroy, or otherwise dominate the world as we know it. It’s just not fair. So those of us who are so twisted and sick that we love mad scientists have created this guide.

    What disappointed you about The Mad Scientist's Guide to World Domination?

    I mainly brought it so I could listen to the story by Diana Gabaldon which I have already read in hard back and loved but I don't like the narrator for the audio Americans just can't do a good scots accent. It very nearly put me to sleep. If the space between comes out on audio on its own please change the narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrators with the correct accent would be good.

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Have been waiting along time for this. I have the rest of the outlander series was just waiting for this one. The whole series is a must have you get lost in Jamie and Claire's story.

    Story
    (306)

    In the early 1930s, Nancy Wake was a young woman enjoying a bohemian life in Paris. By the end of the Second World War, she was the Gestapo's most wanted person. As a naive, young journalist, Nancy Wake witnessed a horrific scene of Nazi violence in a Viennese street. From that moment, she declared that she would do everything in her power to rid Europe of the Nazis. What began as a courier job here and there became a highly successful escape network for Allied soldiers.

    Simone says: "Who The "BLEEP" is Nancy Wake??"
    "A true hero"
    Overall

    Amazing story. Great narration. Peter Fitzsimons has done a fantastic job of writing a biography of a truly heroic woman. Couldn't stop listening.
