    Imagine becoming a best-selling novelist, and almost immediately famous and wealthy, while still in college, and before long seeing your insufferable father reduced to a bag of ashes in a safety-deposit box, while after American Psycho your celebrity drowns in a sea of vilification, booze, and drugs.

    Matthew says: "Not Mainstream Crap"
    "Very Engaging"
    Overall

    This was my first BEE book, and I found it by turns fascinating and frightening. It's a great story that is moving, scary, and involving. The narration is very strong as well. Very "Stephen King" esque, and an interesting act of meta-fiction (writing about himself fictionally).

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Wonderful if a touch dated"
    Overall

    A fantastic book (but not as emotionally fulfilling as the sequel), dealing with alienation and wish fulfillment in a fast-moving and entertaining setting. One of the benchmark SF novels of all time.

  • Minority Report and Other Stories (Unabridged Stories)

    Viewed by many as the greatest science fiction writer on any planet, Philip K. Dick has written some of the most intriguing, original, and thought-provoking fiction of our time. This collection includes "The Minority Report," "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale," "Paycheck," "Second Variety," and "The Eyes Have It."

    Travis says: "Nice Collection of Four P.D.K. Short Stories"
    "Interesting, But Dated"
    Overall

    This is a fascinating look at short stories that were perverted or realized with varying degrees of success (and fidelity) by translation into movies. Most stories are quite entertaining, but dated in their "future tech" and also in the sociental attitudes implicit in Dick's writing. All in all, an enjoyable, if not deeply moving read.
