    Arthur C. Clark, creator of one of the world's best-loved science-fiction tales, revisits the most famous future ever imagined in this New York Times best seller, as two expeditions into space become inextricably tangled. Heywood Floyd, survivor of two previous encounters with the mysterious monloiths, must again confront Dave Bowman, HAL, and an alien race that has decided that Mankind is to play a part in the evolution of the galaxy - whether it wishes to or not.

    What did you love best about 2061: Odyssey Three?

    Excellent hard science fiction


    What did you like best about this story?


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

    I will often listen to books I normally would never consider when I see that Scott Brick is narrarating. He has the best inflection and narraration skills. He could literally read me the Bible - and I’m an atheist!


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


    Any additional comments?


    There is a gap between 2001 and this book - almost assuming one has watched the movie 2010.. not sure if that was the intention or order in which they were produced but that is how it seemed.

    Story

    I am a civil engineer by trade so the detailed technical aspects of this book were a real treat. The story told by the author is highly detailed and encompasses many aspects of a growing industrial America at a pivotal time as it comes into its own. The serial killer aspect is an interesting way to tell the story, drawing on the early industrial revolutionary setting as the stage. All in all 10/10!!!

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s a story that most people know, told here in an unforgettable way – an audio masterpiece that rivals the best thrillers, thanks to Capote genre-defining words and Brick’s subtle but powerful characterizations. On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues.

    Story

    Maybe I was expecting too much from this work after reading many reviews praising the originality and artful depiction of "American crime." Overall the story was long, drawn out and anything but nail biting. I forced myself to listen to 11 hours of this, all of which would have been spent in lateral utility watching the ID channel for a large marathon.

    Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other infamous strategists. The 48 Laws of Power will fascinate any listener interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control.

    Story

    By far the best book I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Eloquent syntax, direct messages, along with a myriad of delightful anecdotes and parables make this work so well formatted. I would suggest this to anyone with a love for the honest window into psychology!
