Well I'm pretty much an all-round listener, although I've recently been very keen on Science Fiction (preferably the Dystopian once).

    Story

    This book is an excellent blend of politics and romance, very action oriented and well written, and gives a great inside into the society of a relatively unknown country, although the mentioned events took place in the late 90s, as far as the facts go. In fact, I was so lost in the book that I read it in one long strike. What was especially interesting was the different views on American interference and relations to the global economy displayed, and the fact that the main character, Kevin Welles, is a relatively common American teenager who nevertheless possesses several mature moral values and sticks to them all the way through. All in all, a really great book definitely worth reading.

    Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes.

    All of the www series is definitely worth a try! Set in a fairly near future, the story is based on a blind girl's gain of sight and her contact with a strange consciousness. Really intriguing plot, very well written (interesting shifting narratives), and it's comforting to read a science fiction work with a positive, almost idealistic attitude towards future world conditions! Furthermore, based on my own experiences of being blind, I must say that the author did a pretty good job at researching on both practical and emotional aspect of blindness.
