I love reading and knitting, so listening to a good book while knitting is my idea of heaven.

    For 12,000 years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last 30,000 years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire, both scientists and scholars, and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations.

    What would have made Foundation better?

    Inclusion of female characters


    What was most disappointing about Isaac Asimov???s story?

    It just wasn't as good at 71 as I had thought at 16.
    Everyone was still smoking and reading newspapers.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I really don't have a suggestion.


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing

    In the 10th year of the Change, the survivors in western Oregon have learned how to live in a world without technology. They have held the Lord Protector, Norman Arminger - the warlord of Portland - at bay. The tensions between these factions have been building for some time, and the only reason they haven't confronted one another on the battlefield is because Arminger's daughter has fallen into Clan Mackenzie's hands. But Lady Sandra has a plan to retrieve her, one that may spark open warfare.

    J. M. Cousins says: "Series Finding It's Stride"
    "Good voice, but too many mispronounced words!"

    The voices are okay, but to repeatedly mispronounce words changing their meaning, and to repeatedly mispronounce place names....did the author listen to this???

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Martian to be better than the print version?

    Did not read.


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Good at showing different characters


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
