    In the latest addition to his best selling and critically acclaimed Don't Know Much About® series, Kenneth Davis delivers a lively and clear guide to the discoveries, theories, and real people that have shaped space exploration from the beginning of civilization to the present. He looks at issues that go beyond the bounds of simple "Science 101" and asks the kinds of questions we may have wanted to ask back in school but didn't have the nerve.

    "A miss leading title"
    Overall

    I found this book to contain very little regarding the universe. The author spent most of the time discussing mythology and the history of astronomy. He is very repetative. He also spent much time discribing the development of space travel. About 10 minutes of this book deals with anything outside the solor system. I am sorry I wasted my money on it.

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Overall

    Although I liked the story Mr King got very long winded. It seemed that he was paid by the word count. This took a lot away from the enjoyment. Also the narrator was not the best. The quality of the recording was bad. Had pops and clicks. I also could hear sounds like a tape fast forwarding between some paragraphs. I never had this in an Audible book before.
    Over all I wish I had either not bought the book or got the abridged version.
