    Fatherland is set in an alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World War. It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler’s 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin’s most prestigious suburb. As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich.

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

    Gripping thriller set in post-WWI victorious Germany. Very clever re-visioning of history and yet also contains a real sense of "heart" at the core. It doesn't forget what was truly evil about that regime and two people's struggle to get the truth out.

    As war continues to rage between the Alliance and Syndicate Worlds, Captain "Black Jack" Geary is promoted to admiral - even though the ruling council fears he may stage a military coup. His new rank gives him the authority to negotiate with the Syndics, who have suffered tremendous losses and may finally be willing to end the war. But an even greater alien threat lurks on the far side of the Syndic occupied space.

    What made the experience of listening to The Lost Fleet: Victorious the most enjoyable?

    First, as others have said, it's a well-written series of books with a lot of suspense and several intriguing characters. Reminds me of Star Trek Voyager in that the fleet is trapped deep in space, essentially. The reading is strong and brilliant.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Fleet: Victorious to and why?

    Most like another great series, Star Force.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel and Jack Campbell – was your favorite?

    I like all three major characters, but Christian Rummel is truly amazing in capturing both the manly brave captain voice of Captain Jack, and the voice of the two strong female protagonists. Arguably the best male performance of two women I've heard--and he lends such strong sensuality and uniqueness to each woman. Amazing!


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series rocks

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

    Yes. It was very helpful for me to brush up on my French and they offer on online guide as well. But it is the two instructors that make this an awesome experience overall. They combine a sense of instruction, humor, friendship beautifully in their presentation. I like Eric Lynch's performance--he is funny, helpful, and encourages learning; but I find Virginies Maries totally captivating. Laugh if you will, but she has such a lovely sexy French accent and voice! Seriously: this is the type of French woman we men all fell in love with over the years, and it just makes the whole experience that much more fun, entertaining, and instructive. Check it out!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Learn French - Level 1: Introduction to French, Volume 1: Lessons 1-25?

    The reparte between the instructors .


    What does Virginie Maries and Eric Lynch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I said--they are superb, tres magnifique! I would love to meet Virginie in person and tell her how awesome she is.


    Any additional comments?

    It's worth it just to listen to these two instructors. haha!

    When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the solar system, the world reacted with awe, hope and fear. But the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, were peaceful traders and the world breathed a sigh of relief.

    Would you listen to Live Free or Die again? Why?

    Ringo's Ayn Rand-conservative take is pretty funny actually, and sort of interesting, though it does get annoying as well. Still, a good tale overall, especially the beginning with the colorful aliens, the syrup, and all of that. Great reading of this, btw. Should have had more military action--I think that's a big flaw. Ringo whips through the action way too fast, focusing more on way too much ranting and geological/physics/manufacturing detail. Everything you anted to know about harvesting asteroids. Thanks for the lecture on all that, John. LOL
