    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    If you could sum up Cloud Atlas in three words, what would they be?

    Back and Forth


    What was most disappointing about David Mitchell’s story?

    There were some great stories in the mix, and some real stinkers. Loosely they were linked together to make a story, and it felt like it was loosely linked together.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not in the lest. I liked the over all feel of it much more then I liked a single hour sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    There is a lot of hype over this book because of how it progresses, but I persnally felt like I had to wade through a lot to get there.

    Would you try another book from David Weber and/or Jason Culp?

    Writer uses the same phrases so often it starts to get annoying. The change of narrator was also irksom as the whole dialect changed and Merlin's voice changes through out the performance being deep and smooth, then higher and less remarkable, it confused me more than once.I like the bed rock of the story, but the writer fell into too many standard writing traps...the editor should be shot

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lucifer's Hammer to be better than the print version?

    Most certainly better then the printed version. You got a much better feel for it, and you could listen past the more mundane things much easier then read through them.


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

    No, honestly I really didn't have an emotional reaction to irt

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a book that builds up in pleasureable listening. In the past it was worth it to me to listen to the next two books. This time...I am not sure I will get the next two books.


    Would you recommend The Dreaming Void to your friends? Why or why not?

    No...it is not a stand alone book.


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

    I like John Lee a good deal. This rates right up there.


    Did The Dreaming Void inspire you to do anything?

    Not a thing...did make me want to find more scifi though
