I'm a huge fan of Audible. I tend to listen to mostly science fiction, but I try to get to every genre. I listen mostly on my drive to work. I'm also on Goodreads.

    Webmind - the vast consciousness that spontaneously emerged from the infrastructure of the World Wide Web - has proven its worth to humanity by aiding in everything from curing cancer to easing international tensions. But the brass at the Pentagon see Webmind as a threat that needs to be eliminated. Caitlin Decter-the once-blind 16-year-old math genius who discovered, and bonded with, Webmind - wants desperately to protect her friend. And if she doesn't act, everything - Webmind included - may come crashing down.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to WWW: Wonder the most enjoyable?

    I listened to all three books. The narration in this book was one of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending was wonderful. This was a good stand alone, but a wonderful ending to the entire series.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Jessica Almasy as Caitlin (or Kaitlin, sorry not sure of spelling) did a fantastic job. I alway enjoy Marc Vietor, and I really enjoyed the reference to Webmind using this narrator as his voice.


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

    I enjoyed the entire book, but the Epilogue was a nice closing.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend the entire series to science fiction fans or anyone that enjoys a book about humanity.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    The narrators did a wonderful performance. I've heard Kirby Heyborne before in another audiobook,but by far I think he did an exceptional job on this title.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    These two added much to this story, which is already a rollercoster ride of emotions.


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

    I would keep the title...although this would be a tough one as a movie. I would love to see it.
