    Sweeney is a druggist by trade; Danny, his son, is in a persistent coma, the victim of an accident. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the Peck Clinic, a fortress-like haven in a post-industrial city overrun by gangs. Doctors there claim to have resurrected two patients who were similarly lost in the void.

    Without a doubt, one of the worst books I have ever read. Don't waste your time or money....period!

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    While I always rate my books, I seldom write a review. However, the amazing qualities of this book deserves one. This by far one of the most enjoyable books I've ever encountered and don't worry about "getting" all the game & movie references, it's not that big a deal relative to the overall story. I'm no youngster, having grown up in the late 60's/early 70's & thoroughly enjoyed it. I've recommended it to others & everyone loved it regardless of age. Wil Wheaton does an incredible job as usual. Bottom line...LISTEN TO THIS BOOK....period

  • Doubt: A History: The Great Doubters and Their Legacy of Innovation

    Hecht champions doubt and questioning as one of the great and noble, if unheralded, intellectual traditions that distinguish the Western mind. From Socrates to Galileo and Darwin to Wittgenstein and Hawking, this is an account of the world's greatest intellectual virtuosos - who are also humanity's greatest doubters and disbelievers - and their attempts to reconcile the seeming meaninglessness of the universe with the human need for meaning.

    Story

    I really wanted to like this book, but couldn't. It is a very densely written, scholarly tome more suited for the classroom than for casual listening. If you want to know everything about this subject, then this is the book for you. However, if you want more of an overview, then look elsewhere.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "Excellent, but constrained"
    Overall

    This is a great book by one of the great popular historians of our day. It's depth of detail and insight into Washington the man makes this a very robust book. However, I felt the author's choice to restrict the book to the events of a single year was too constraining for my taste. For those like me who want to know more, I recommend following 1776 with D.H. Fischer's excellent "Washington's Crossing" that covers the events of late 1776 into early 1777 in detail with very little overlap.

    What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as Tyrannosaur Canyon?

    Amazon Customer says: "Tyrannosaur Canyon"
    "Very Good"
    Overall

    Interesting story line with enough twists & turns to hold your attention all the way through, though you could see a few of them coming from a mile away. The characters are very believable & I will definitely listen to more books by this author. For me, this is a straight ahead action/adventure & I was a little hard pressed to see why Audible includes this title under Science Fiction. Either way, a good read.
