I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.

    After the battle in which the men of the destroyer Walker and their Lemurian allies repelled the savage Grik, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy is shocked by the arrival of a strange ship captained by one Commaner Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy - an island-nation populated by the descendants of British East Indiamen swept through the rift centuries before.

    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the USS Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians - a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik. The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle.

    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    I did like this book and I would recommend reading it to a friend. I just feel like the way the book was written got old fast. I am not a big fan of journal entries being how a story is told. Still the pluses of the book out way the negatives and it is worth the time and credit.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    I have loved every book that I have read or listened to by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle so I am not sure if my expectation for this book was too high or how I feel about it. Was a very good book and I enjoyed it very much, but it is defiantly my least favorite book by them that I have read. But still a book worth your time.

    As an immense cloud of gas enters the solar system, it blocks the sun, threatening to wipe out most of life on Earth. In Britain, a team of scientists gathers at a secret location to deal with the crisis. But as the months pass, what they learn will challenge everything they believe about the nature of life and the universe.

    I am sure people won’t agree with me, but I found this book very boring and I didn’t like it much at all. Not worth getting into why I didn’t like this book, because I feel that I have wasted enough time on it as it is.

    Six million years ago, at the very dawn of the starfaring era, Abigail Gentian fractured herself into a thousand male and female clones: the shatterlings. Sent out into the galaxy, these shatterlings have stood aloof as they document the rise and fall of countless human empires. They meet every 200,000 years to exchange news and memories of their travels with their siblings.

    I did love this book, and it is defiantly worth the time, and credit. I have just recently been turned onto the world of hard sci-fi and so far this is my favorite book of that type that I have read or listened to. I love military sci-fi and although I wouldn’t consider this a military sci-fi book, it does fulfill my need for action and hold off my lack of patience.

    I started listening to Monster Hunter series after a recommendation from a friend. I was pleasantly surprise how entertaining this series is. Definitely worth the time and credits to listen to the full series, and I am looking forward to the next book.
