    Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    Very good book. A lot of fun. I hope audible gets the next installment soon.

    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.

    AudioAddict says: "A hero with a sexy voice!"
    "Great, but too short"
    Overall

    Terrific books. Right in line with the Honorverse series by David Weber. The Lost Fleet books are engrossing and very well written.
    The characters have plenty of detail. In particular, their relationships are intense and feel realistic.
    My only complaint is that I wanted more. I would have liked more detail about every aspect of the technology and the battles. I've listened to the 4 currently available, and each book could have been twice the length. That said, the reason I wanted them to be longer is because I enjoyed them so much.
    Definitely give them a listen, if you like spacefaring books, you'll enjoy these.

    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    K. Giavelli says: "How to Live"
    "A must read"
    Overall

    Something everyone should read. Dr. Pausch may have been taken too soon, but he turned even that into a triumph.

    You can go after the job you want...and get it! You can take the job you have...and improve it! You can take any situation you're in...and make it work for you!

    Ralph says: "This is well worth listening too! Main points are."
    "Would you like to improve your life?"
    Overall

    This book, though many of the references are dated, still applies in absolutely every walk of life. It is equally important for a stay at home parent as it is for a top level executive. Read it. You, and the people you meet, will be happier as a result.
