    One man in the Universe holds the key to the mystery of Flinx's past - and that man is trying to kill him! It is a strange childhood for a kid, to be adopted by the restless Mother Mastiff and raised in the bustling marketplace of Drallar. Flinx never knew the mom and dad who abandoned him years ago. In fact, his birth has always been shrouded in mystery. But Flinx eventually discovers that his unknown parents have left him a curious legacy - extraordinary mental powers that are both a marvelous gift and a dreaded curse.

    What made the experience of listening to Orphan Star the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flinx & Pip of course


    Did Stefan Rudnicki do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes. But there needed to be a pause when he changed from the main characters to a secondary story-line. Always confusing thinking that the story of the main characters was continuing but discovering 1/2 way thru that it was a different set of characters - confusing and irritating.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    see "Did Stefan Rudnicki do a good job...."

    Lucas Corso, middle-aged, tired, and cynical, is a book detective, a mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found hanged, leaving behind part of the of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment. Soon the unsuspecting Corso is drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent treatment by the reader and oh so enjoyable to listen to. Always loved the book - much better than the movie with more levels.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Club Dumas?

    I always loved the fact that there are at least 3 - 4 stories going on here.


    Have you listened to any of David Warner???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like his reading, I like his voices, I would probably choose another one of his to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The search is only the beginning...


    Any additional comments?

    If considering a suspense, mystery, fantasy, or just liked the movie "The Ninth Gate" get this. It is well worth it!

    A look at the world's greatest detective with an intriguing twist: it assumes Holmes is a real person. Examines such famous cases as The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Final Problem, and includes a 1928 interview with Arthur Conan Doyle.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who had not seen the original TV broadcast


    What could A&E Television Networks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    made it an audio performance by filling in the gaps not "seen"


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator???s performances?

    no


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    information of subject's life


    Any additional comments?

    direct copy of original broadcast - needs cleaning (of commercial eye catches) and more audio to explain what we are not "seeing"

    The story of the illegitimate daughter of a Renaissance Pope, who has been called "the most depraved woman in history". This profile investigates reports that she killed her enemies with arsenic-drenched rings and may have had an incestuous affair with her father.

    no

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Biography?

    commercial eye/ear catches

    direct copy of original television broadcast - needs more for "studio of the mind" performance.
