    The Green Hills of Earth is a collection of short stories from one of the masters of science fiction who has held readers spellbound for over 30 years. This collection includes "Delilah and the Space-Rigger," "Space-Jockey," "The Long Watch," "Gentlemen Be Seated," "The Black Pits of Luna," "It's Great to Be Back," "' - We Also Walk Dogs,'" "Ordeal in Space," "The Green Hills of Earth," and "Logic of Empire."

    ShySusan says: "His best short story collection"
    "Essential for Heinlein Fans"
    Overall

    Good shorts in their own right. But more importantly, it brings out themes, characters, and even songs, you'll be hearing again in later Heinlein stories. To know where you're going you have to know where you've been.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    This is a great series of books. It's founding plot provides everlasting basis for friction, drama, ((hu)man against man conflict for you English majors) etc. I could do without the romance angle, but even that is done pretty well and doesn't really get in the way of the core story. I could think of a lot of authors who could have started in the same place and really screwed it up but you don't get a series with about 8 books and a spinoff series unless you have kept your stuff together.

    What did you like best about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People? What did you like least?

    Non-fiction is harder to listen to and keep interested than fiction. Self help is harder than the rest of non-fiction. It's a tall order and this title didn't make it. It's probably not a bad Kindle or paper book read.

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."

    Not Scalzi's best, but if your a fan, you'll enjoy it. His sense of humor is there in full force.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. So it wasn't surprising that he became spoiled, self-centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life?

    This book and the whole series is a good investment in time and money. It doesn't fit any of the standard formulas which made it all the more enjoyable. Stefan Rudnicki brings it home for us.

    In the second decade of the 21st century, the world is struck by two catastrophes: a new mini-ice age and a plague to dwarf all previous experiences. Rising out of the disaster is the character known to history as "Bandit Six", an American Army officer caught up in the struggle to rebuild the world and prevent the fall of his homeland - despite the best efforts of politicians, both elected and military.

    Lindsay says: "Enjoy the story and forget the politics"

    I really enjoyed this story. Having been a soldier myself added to that experience. If I ever run out of audio books to read the first time, this will be one of the first ones I read again.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    This is the first Koontz book I read and it was a great introduction. I don't read all of his but those that seem to have a sci-fi slant to them I do tend to give a try.

    Robert Leckie enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in January 1942, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In Helmet for My Pillow, we follow his odyssey, from basic training on Parris Island, South Carolina, all the way to the raging battles in the Pacific, where some of the war's fiercest fighting took place. Recounting his service with the 1st Marine Division and the brutal action on Guadalcanal, New Britain, and Peleliu, Leckie spares no detail of the horrors and sacrifices of war.

    Sean says: "A classic narrative of the Pacific War"
    "Author is too impressed with himself"

    What would have made Helmet for My Pillow better?

    I could not get into this book. The author is to busy trying to convince you that he is a civilized man now, even though he went through hell on earth during WWII. He uses words and phrases that show his aspirations to be the next Shakespeare. He isn't.
