    Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

    Would you try another book from Neal Stephenson and/or Jennifer Wiltsie?

    I loved Snow Crash but was surprised I didnt like this one at all


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I really didnt like the young female child voice and found it really irritating.

    He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human—even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the nightmare together, because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost.

    What would have made First Drop of Crimson better?

    the main character was whiney and too wimpy


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeaniene Frost again?

    Yes. I have listened to another one of her books that I thought was decent. Not sure why she went so whiney and spineless with the main character in this one


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Her performance is good.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldnt even finish listening to the entire book.

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Richard Morgan created a futuristic, action packed novel with a twisting and turning plot that kept me on the edge of my seat!

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ender's Game to be better than the print version?

    Great Book - Read it and listened to it. Great in both forms- lots of suspense and I didnt want to put it down.
