    Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot 97. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of the ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorby himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.

    L. says: "One of Heinlein's best"
    "Incredible!"
    Overall

    I have read through Sci-Fi books like a starving man through a feast, and never before have listened/read such an astounding book, good for die hard sci-fi fans, and those who arent fond of them.
    A must read!

    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    Teddy says: "You see growth in the Author"
    "get ready for a ride!"
    Overall

    step back into the world of Alagaesia, in the 2nd book of the inheritance trilogy, the first book was merely an appetizer, this book could very well be my favorite

    Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults.

    David says: "full of passion"
    "most of the time rather boring"
    Overall

    this book is often very boring, and it features two storylines instead of one, however you cannot complete your ender series without it so it's worth the buy in that one reason, however as a lone book, not really worth it

    The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.

    Jim says: "Hmm"
    "very nice"
    Overall

    the book, like most of orson's was very compelling, however, it is very easy to get lost in its story line, so if you are not a good fan of orson, grit your teeth during the long and tedious parts.
