    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    J. Rhoderick says: "A great read!"

    I'm sorry but I thought this book would never end! It was very slow and at times very hard to follow.

    The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from the grand master of adventure. It is called zero point energy - a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however - until one scientist discovers a way. The problem is, his machines also cause great earthquakes. If Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala and the rest of the NUMA team aren't able to find and destroy them, and soon, the world will be on the threshold of a new era of earth tremors and unchecked volcanism.

    Story

    Worst Australian accent EVER!! I love Scott Bricks narration and have listened to many of his...this was so disappointing. He did a really bad Aus accent and it was almost a deal breaker for me. Made me dread when the Aus characters were talking and in turn made the book much less enjoyable

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    I was concerned this was going to be yet another zombi/vampire story. I tried to find out from the reviews but to no avail. I can now happily say there are none in this book.

    The story is great and I was very glad that none of the reviews gave anything away. If I had know before I started it wouldn't have been as good.

    Hope you enjoy it too.

    After colliding with a semi-truck, Don Piper died and went to heaven. Ninety minutes later he returned to life on earth. After years of silence, he is now sharing his life-changing story.

    Dudley Kenney says: "Good Beginning"
    "Thought provoking"
    Overall

    This story was not what I expected at all. Less about heaven, more about it's effect. It made me think and examine myself and my actions. I really would highly recommend this to anyone. It will be one that I will listen to again and again and I know that each time will reveal something new to me. Thanks Don for being obedient.

    This story is very different to the other Matthew Reilly books I've read and I really enjoyed it. Matthew is a great writer. Very entertaining. A great listen!

A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars and it appears to have been activated. Sixty hours and counting.

    The story is good but there is to much unnecessary profanity and that was disappointing

    Another great book from Nora. I started to think that all Nora's books where the same plot with different characters...this one proved me wrong. I loved it! Didn't want to stop listening.

    In winter, Brianna Concannon's bed-and-breakfast is a cold and empty place. And that's fine with Brianna. She enjoys the peace and quiet, even when icy winds howl at her window. This year, though, she's expecting an unusual guest: mystery writer Grayson Thane, from America. And sometimes a fire can be born in ice.

    "Loved it!"

    Another Nora Roberts great. Great listen and will listen to it again along with Born in Fire

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    I am So kicking myself for not reading more of the reviews before I bought this book. I got about an hour in and stopped. Covens and stuff is not what you expect from the description. What a waste of a credit!!

    The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why? That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address.

    Jackie says: "Fascinating Ride!"
    "Great "Read""
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It was detailed and had lots of facts that weren't fiction mixed in with the story which made it even better!
