    After more than two hundred years as a corpsicle, Jaybee Corbell awoke in someone else’s body and under threat of instant annihilation if he made a wrong move while they were training him for a one-way mission to the stars. But Corbell bided his time and made his own move. Once he was outbound, where the society that ruled Earth could not reach him, he headed his starship toward the galactic core.

    What disappointed you about A World Out of Time?

    This book really makes no sense. I had to stop before it finished. Come on, do we really think there would be cars on earth in 3 MILLION years. That's just one example.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is my least favorite of the Covert One books. My biggest complaint is that the book just seems to keep going for no apparent reason. There are numerous points where it seems like the battles should end, but the bad guys just get away. Then at the end, it just ends. Like the author was trying to achieve a certain number of pages and then realized they had reached the number so they just ended the book in the next paragraph. Despite having serious diseases or injuries, the heros just miraculously heal and the book ends. I like the rest of the series, but I think I'll skip this one when I listen to them again in the future.

    The authority of the Syndicate Worlds’ government is crumbling. Civil war and rebellion are breaking out in many star systems, despite the Syndic government’s brutal attempts to suppress disorder. Midway is one of those star systems, and leaders there must decide whether to remain loyal to the old order or fight for something new.

    What did you like best about The Lost Stars: Tarnished Knight? What did you like least?

    I really struggle with this new series. It's an interesting point of view to see what happened in the Lost Fleet books from the other side's perspective. The story isn't bad, but I was disappointed in how the book was written. It lacked the technical detail and excitement we've come to expect from Jack Campbell of the Lost Fleet series. However, my biggest complaint was the narrator. Why is it when a narrator changes in a series, they feel compelled to pronounce names differently? It's extremely distracting to listen to because I find myself wanting to correct the narrator. It's also hard to identify that it's the same character or star system from the previous narrator because they are pronounced so differently. Do they not listen to the books of the previous narrator before doing the recording? You'd think somebody at the production company would have. I really don't care which pronunciation is correct; just keep it consistent.


    What didn’t you like about Marc Vietor’s performance?

    Quit pronouncing names different from the prior series!!!!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably.

    Captain Ivan Vorpatril is happy with his relatively uneventful bachelor's life as a staff officer to a Barrayaran admiral. Cousin to imperial troubleshooter Miles Vorkosigan, Ivan is not far down the hereditary list for the emperorship. Thankfully, new heirs have directed that headache elsewhere, leaving Ivan to enjoy his life on Komarr, far from the Byzantine court politics of his home system. But when an old friend in Barrayaran intelligence asks Ivan to protect an attractive young woman who may be on the hit list of a criminal syndicate, his chivalrous nature takes over. It seems danger and adventure have once more found Captain Vorpatril.

    Barbara M. Sullivan says: "We are finally allowed to see Ivan without Miles."
    "An interesting sub-plot book"

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

    This is an interesting sub-plot to the Miles Vorkosegan series. Not a lot of action, but still a good read. Highly recommended for those that have the other books in the series.

  • The Sagan Diary

    Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her - silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view: her own, as she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world.

    Robert says: "Nothing like Scalzi's old man's war."

    What would have made The Sagan Diary better?

    This is by far the worst book I've ever listened to. I could only listen to about 1/2 of the book and had to give up. I felt like I was at a funeral listening to a 1.5 hour eulogy that never seemed to end. I have no idea what the purpose of the story was. I got this book for free during one of Audible's sales. Thankfully I didn't pay anything to listen to this garbage.


    What does Stephanie Wolfe and John Scalzi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narration was not the problem with this book. The narrators did a fine job.
