    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    Incredible thought provoking book, makes you think and wonder about the threats of man evolving and adopting a god-like perspective on himself. When will progress be enough?

  • Shadows in Flight

    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.

    Story
    Where does Shadows in Flight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved the story, the characters, the setting and everything just as in all of the other books in the Enderverse series, however, it's shortness left a HUGE void... I would have preferred to wait more time for a COMPLETE book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadows in Flight?

    When Bean discovers that their previous beliefs about the Hive Queens was terribly wrong! This opens up doors and leaves question to be, hopefully, answered in subsequent books.


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

    Excellent as always!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Bean was able to stand and take a few steps, freed by the knowledge that his children would be OK.


    Any additional comments?

    With all due respect to Mr. Card, his explanation about making this book short in order for it to be affordable and therefore bought on impulse is RIDICULOUS, speccially when you consider the fact that this is the most recent book in a series expanding now 10 (yes, TEN!) books... I felt ripped off, and not so much for the money as for the huge expectations created for this book as well as the waiting period for the next one.

  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 20 mins)

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Bravo Mr. Larsson, Bravo Simon Vance"
    Overall

    This is, undoubtedly, the best book of the trilogy though not for much since all three are exceptional... It is an absolute shame we will never be able to know what happens next with "the girl with the dragon tatoo". The ending was perfect and there were no loose ends, however, Mr. Larsson would have surely delighted us with more adventures of the unlikely couple of Salander and Blomqvist.

    Finally, for a great book, a great narrator... It's hard to think of someone better for Larsson's books than Simon Vance. His voice, his accent and his characterizations are right on the mark.
