This is a wonderful story, I was very emotionally drawn into the story. I felt real fear when Ponder, the Neaderathal, was shifted into our universe, in pure darkness, swimming in a cavern of water, (fighting for his life) which was then shrinking. I liked the Candian perspective, and I loved the discriptions of the Nearderthal world, which were insightful, and imaginative, The alibi alcoves and such, Beautiful! Its as good as Enders Game, or Pohl's Gateway! Loved the ending, very satisfying, I give it a 93 out of 100.
Ponder, though this is not as good as Heinlien's Stranger in a Strage land, this is a Great book, Good for you Robert J. Sawyer!
All, except, he does have a weak Jamacian accent, though not that big a deal. He was very emotional, and exceptional in his reading! Wonderful!
The part whare Ponder comes to our Universe in the Nitrino tank, and the ending I almost cried! This guy is a relly good writer!
I laughed at the product placement, though I am paraphrasing,
The story, and the narrator.
The cat Pete. He is so original.
the opening scene in the restaurant, and later, when he winds up at the nudist colony.
When he gets revenge.
Loved the book!
Very interesting and fast paced!
the engineer who built the elevator.
Stephan is just the best in the World!
Ben Bova is a fantastic writer, and important for our time as a cultural leader.
The chronology, the history, the writers story, which was such a fantastic adventure in bravery.
The history of Robert E. Howard in his Conan series books, just simply Fascinating, as this was!
What a Beautiful and fantastic presence he lends to this work! I just remember him being this silly comedian on that sit com years ago! But he is like a bloody Orson Wells in this narration! Loved it! Keep up the good work Bronson!
The Fact that one of my literary hero's had to work, so................so hard as a child, "the worker beast" was particularly touching.
First rate! Will listen to it again, and again through out the years! Thank you audible!
The humor, the characters, the story, the actors are Great!
All the ways Sultan tries to kill our hero's, yet does not succeed, at least not yet.
FANTASTIC ACTORS! First rate production! Love, Love, Love every fricken minute of it!
Made me laugh, I love the villain Sultan, but he is a mighty Jerk!
Love the series!
Love Stefan Rudnicki, great narrator, but Michael Flynn, this is the second book I've gotten from him and it is mediocre at best. Little dialogue, weak story, mediocre science. I usually support my Irish Brothers, however, this dude just is not that good. I am a Science fiction writer, and this guy does a lot of things that are just not that entertaining.
Oh....................I don't know, put in more dialogue, used words that did not smack of amateurism. Maybe, if he had actual good science to back up the scenes in the book. I am not impressed at all, he writes like Edgar Rice Boroughs, all description and little dialogue to move the story along. Crap I'm a better writer than he is, and that is not saying much.
Mr. Rudnicki is a master, I have heard him on most of Ben Bova's work, "The Planet series, etc. I enjoy Bova's work immensely, however Bova is not quite Heinlein, and Flynn is about half as good Bova, and that is being generous! I wish I could give Mr. Flynn a better review. Read the first chapter of James Joyce's Ulysses, and you will see what a GREAT Irish writer can do!
No, I am deeply saddened to say I wish that it were, I will have my priest say a prayer for poor Mr. Flynn.
I don't know what the bloody problem with My. Flynn is but, I wish he were better. I had a bad time with his other works too.
Meeting the Martians
Ice skating on Mars.
I just love the full cast audio, and Robert A. Heinlien are the Best!
Sure, I already have, 3 times.
Interesting stories from the pulp era, some racism towards Asians, blacks, and in the last story towards Irish men in the movie business, who everyone knows is populated by people of the Jewish persuasion.
The horse winning and the movie business, from the Auto-magic horse.
Stories from the far edges of the universe to the your own backyard.
Out of 100 is is in the top ten.
Cree lauren and his dealing with the Slavers
that would give away the ending
I liked It, L. Ron Hubbard is a great writer, and the Pulp stuff is fantastic! Nothing but Good Clean fun!
top ten percent, fantastic cast, and good rendition! Just as good as the full family cast used to be on the Heinlein books before they were discontinued.
the streets of Casa blanca
Just fantastic stories of adventure by Mr. Hubbard.
Great Adventure story!
The adventure elements, its just like I remember it, when I read it as a kid.
