    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Joanna says: "Wow!"
    "Increadable story, could not stop listening."
    Overall

    Took my ipod to bed to keep listening to the book. A must buy. Each chapter got better, and the start was a little slow, but still good. Then the book became exceptional right away and kept getting better!


    A MUST BUY

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

    They say Black Dow's killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbour, is not about to stand smiling by while he claws his way any higher. The orders have been given and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

    Jason says: "Great Book , Great Author, Great narrator."

    Overall

    This book is an treasure. Joe Abercrombie delivers another masterpiece of a novel. Get the books in order, but get them all. This is the latest one.
    Michael Page does an smashing job of narration, as always. He is one of the best .

  • The Black Hole War: My Battle to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics

    Story

    What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed that it did - and in doing so, put at risk everything we know about the fundamental laws of the universe. Leonard Susskind and Gerard 't Hooft realized the threat and responded with a counterattack that changed the course of physics.

    Matthew says: "Good, but has its flaws"
    "Excellent astronomy drama and instruction"
    Overall

    This is a great tale of astronomy and the search to defend the understanding of physics in light of new discovery. A worthy listen and fun. I highly recommend it.

    Story

    Stranger in a Strange Land tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, an earthling born and educated on Mars, who arrives on Earth with superhuman powers and a total ignorance of the mores of man. Smith is destined to become a freak, a media commodity, a scam artist, a searcher, and finally, a messiah.

    Harris says: "A Parable for the Ages"
    "One of the best books ever."
    Overall

    You will not regret downloading this one. The narrator is highly skilled at his craft and the story considered Heinlein's best in many quarters. This consideration is deserved. The story is compelling, the pacing strong, and the plot thought provoking and entertaining.
    Possible one of the 10 ten books available in all of audible library.
