    Kevin J. Anderson is one of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction writers in the world. He is a New York Times best-selling author with more than 11 million copies of his books in print. Now the epic saga he began with Hidden Empire continues in this breathtaking novel.

    Overall

    Great series of books. You need to read the first two before this one. Can hardly wait until the next in the series is out.

    With the discovery of another life-sustaining planet light years away, there is hope for a chosen few to leave the soon-to-be submerged Earth. Holle Groundwater is one of the candidates, having been trained for this purpose since childhood, when the ships Ark One and Ark Three were being built. But as Holle prepares to endure life aboard the Ark, she comes to realize that her attempt at escape may be more dangerous than trying to stay afloat on a drowning planet.

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

    Yes, Outstanding audiobook that was hard to put down and leave.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I only have time norally to listen while driving back and forth from work but with this book I ended up listerning to it every chance I had. There were a lot of individuals in the book but you began to understand there thinking and actions. Everyone have their own thoughts on reveiwing a book but for one that reads only a couple of science fiction books a book I would say buy this one.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that another book is added to this series taking off from the ending of this one. It would be one that I would buy without any question.

    The universe has been explored - and humanity has all but given up on finding other intelligent life. Then an alien satellite orbiting a distant star sends out an unreadable signal. Is it the final programmed gasp of an ancient, long-dead race? Or the first greeting of an undiscovered life form?

    Robert says: "Everything You Want in a Sci-Fi Novel"
    "Outstanding Read"
    Overall

    I don't usually comment on titles I listen to but must do it on this. It was one of the best that I have listen to in a long while. Khristine Hvam was outstanding in the reading of the book. Would reccmmend this book to all.

    High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet, to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats...to protect them, most of all, from themselves.

    Ursis nodded soberly out the Hyperscreens toward the merchant ships, then turned to Brim. "Out there, Wilf Ansor," he brooded, "are real heroes of war. To fight from behind disruptors of warship is something anyone can do. One can always count on lucky shooting to save him from disaster, or heavy armor plate at least. But to face enemy with only black void and thin sheet of hullmetal separating you from disruptors, and then stay in formation, that is kind of bravery we Sodeskayans record in Great Books."

    Alexander says: "A Ripping Good Yarn"
    "Excellent Read"
    Overall

    Best if you had read "The Helmsman" by Bill Baldwin. Overall very fast moving book that captures your full attention. I listen daily on a 30 minutes ride to and from work. This book has been one that I have stayed in the car to listen to when returning home. If you enjoyed Baldwin's earlier book you should enjoy this one.

    Princeton. Good Friday, 1999. On the eve of graduation, two students are a hairsbreadth from solving the mysteries of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. Famous for its hypnotic power over those who study it, the 500-year-old Hypnerotomachia may finally reveal its secrets to Tom Sullivan, whose father was obsessed with the book, and Paul Harris, whose future depends on it. As the deadline looms, research has stalled, until an ancient diary surfaces.

    I found this book for the most point fast moving. It is one that you become involved in and don't want to move away from. The ending was very moving.

    The Ringworld is a landmark engineering achievement, a flat band 3-million-times the surface area of Earth, encircling a distant star. Home to trillions of inhabitants, not all of which are human, and host to amazing technological wonders, the Ringworld is unique in all of the universe.

    Overall

    I for one happen to like the reading by Whitener. One should read at least "Ringworld" and "Protector" before reading this book as this one is based on both of these works. Great read, one that you don't want to stop until it is finish and then you want more.

    Nobody blends good science with bad puns as brilliantly as Spider Robinson. Now he's back with the latest chapter of the Callahan saga: an improbable tale of impending doom, a road trip, space, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.

    One audio book that you can not wait to finish. I listen mainly on the way back and forth from work and found myself sitting in my driveway wanting to hear more.
