    At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth’s scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten - a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth’s history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come.

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

    I would because the entire Ender/Shadow series is one of the best I have ever read. And the team they use to read these books have been pretty much the same throughout all of the titles.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was the next story...and I am constantly waiting for the next Ender/Shadow story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the children first went to the Bugger ship.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Mr. Card.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    This modern classic of military history has been called "one of the most important personal accounts of war that I have ever read" by distinguished historian John Keegan. Author E.B. Sledge served with the First Marine Division during World War II, and his first-hand narrative is unsurpassed in its sincerity. Sledge’s experience shows in this fascinating account of two of the most harrowing and pivotal island battles of the Pacific theater.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What did you like best about this story?

    The amount of detail is superb


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final day was as riveting as it gets.


    Any additional comments?

    Put aside any political disagreements you may have with the author. There are no politics here, just a comprehensive, brilliantly researched story about one of the worst moments in American history.

    Story

    One of the 20th century's most challenging novels of ideas, The Fountainhead champions the cause of individualism through the story of a gifted young architect who defies the tyranny of conventional public opinion. The struggle for personal integrity in a world that values conformity above creativity is powerfully illustrated through three characters: Howard Roarke, a genius; Gail Wynand, a newspaper mogul and self-made millionaire; and Dominique Francon, a devastating beauty.

    Individualism reigns supreme.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was actually Gail Wynand


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Hurt – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the way he performed the character of Howard Roark. He gave him a nobility.


    Any additional comments?

    For a long book is seemed a very quick listen.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    Story

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print edition.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was of course Lincoln.


    What does Scott Holst bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a flow and a voice to the characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and why?

    Lincoln...because he is Lincoln


    Any additional comments?

    Put your snobbery aside and just enjoy the story. The author did a great job of intertwining actual history with Vampire lore. It gave the story a believability that I found entertaining and interesting.

  • The Autobiography of Black Hawk

    Story
    (1086)

    This story is told in the words of a tragic figure in American history - a hook-nosed, hollow-cheeked old Sauk warrior who lived under four flags while the Mississippi Valley was being wrested from his people. The author is Black Hawk himself - once pursued by an army whose members included Captain Abraham Lincoln and Lieutenant Jefferson Davis. Perhaps no Indian ever saw so much of American expansion or fought harder to prevent that expansion from driving his people to exile and death.

    What did you love best about The Autobiography of Black Hawk?

    I loved the unique point of view. Black Hawk was an inherently positive man who tried to persevere against dishonest people.

    A great insight in to a point of view that gets overlooked sometimes...the Native Americans

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

    Would you listen to Atlas Shrugged again? Why?

    I would, and have in fact been through the 50 plus hours twice now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that in today's political climate, the story is more relevant now than ever.


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

    I have also listened to The Fountainhead read by Christopher Hurt. That was just as excellent.


    If you could rename Atlas Shrugged, what would you call it?

    "Why Liberalism Will Doom Us All to Mediocrity".
