    Story

    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

    Story
    (1206)

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    Katherine says: "excruciatingly vivid, marvelously written and read"
    "The Most Beautiful Writing"

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Robert A. Heinlein

    Story
    (1742)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Peter says: "Heinlein's Masterpiece"
    "Fantastic"

    Would you listen to The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress again? Why?

    Yes, great performance


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a smart, stimulating read


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

    I believe this is his best performance, "Starship Troopers" was the only one of his performances I didn't care for


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

    TANSTAAFL!!! (There ain't no such thing as a free lunch)
