    At last, the costly and bitter war between the two Foundations had come to an end. Now the two exiled citizens of the Foundation - a renegade Councilman and the doddering historian - set out in search of the mythical planet Earth. Meanwhile, someone - or something - outside of both Foundations seems to be orchestrating events to suit its own ominous purpose.

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

    Yes, it is a well read classic. Classic Asimov compelling story with complex questions to ponder while enjoying the continuing Foundation story.


    What other book might you compare Foundation's Edge to and why?

    Foundation, Foundation and Empire. Foundations Edge is second only to Foundation and Empire's storyline. Although Foundations Edge has a few more thought provoking ideas.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Read the characters with appropriate voice and style.


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

    Individual vs collective.

    If you happen to find a map in a dead buccaneer's sea trunk, you can't very well ignore it, not if you are Jim Hawkins and his friends Dr. Livesey, Captain Smollett, and Squire Trelawney! But even with a map, buried treasures are not easy things to come by.

    Story
    Where does Treasure Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This the best relatively shorter story that I have listened to. It's quickly flowing storyline kept me listening continuously.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Long John Silver, complexity of his character.


    What about Neil Hunt’s performance did you like?

    Great inflections and cjaracter voices "fit".


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, the book makes me laugh.

  • A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

    Story
    (177)

    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is both a whimsical fantasy and a social satire chock-full of brilliant Twainisms. Hank Morgan, a nineteenth-century American---a Connecticut Yankee---by a stroke of fate is sent back into time to sixth-century England and ends up in Camelot and King Arthur's Court.

    Ian C Robertson says: "A Classic Yarn"
    "Mark Train's humor and wit on display."

    Story
    What did you love best about A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court?

    The playful way that the story compares and contrastes the cultures of the past and present.


    What other book might you compare A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court to and why?

    Hard to compare to other books. It is a contemporary critique of the Arthurian error. In contrast to The Once and Future King that has a more rmantic view of the ideals of the period.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    The way the characters are personified and compelling a great match for Twains writing style.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When our Yankee Hero realizes his dream is lost, and how he describes what went wrong.
