    At last, one of the world’s greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it. To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem’s provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

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

    Yes. The narrator did a good job of differentiating the characters. There was a lot of technical discourse that would have been hard to follow reading that came alive being read to you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rheya was the character I found fascinating. As she came to terms with who or what she was and inevitably takes the same course of action her original human self pursued. If I had one complaint it would be the book did not probe the nature of Rheya even more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Dr. Kris Kelvin reaches this remote space station with no way to get home quickly and finds himself trapped with the apparent madman Gibarian as his only company.


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

    When Kris tricked the first Rheya into the rocket. It was both sad and horrific at the same time. The trusting innocence of Rheya juxtaposed with the cold calculating actions of Kris really made the scene work.


    Any additional comments?

    Reminded me a little of "2001 a space odyssey". Human beings encountering the incomprehensible but Solaris does it in a more personal way.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    What did you like best about Go the F--k to Sleep? What did you like least?

    Samuel Jackson's narration is perfect for this simple tale. Unfortunately the lines he is given is repetitive and predictable and the joke gets old quick.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortes (cover illustration) again?

    I would not be interested in more of the same type of material.


    What about Samuel L. Jackson’s performance did you like?

    He delivers each line of poetry with such relish, as if each is the tagline from "Snakes on a Plane".


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No!


    Any additional comments?

    Cute for the first few stanzas. Maybe if I could see the illustrations it would have been funnier throughout.
