Michio Kaku is always a good listen. I only have one disagreement with him and that's the issue of the US going back to product production. I think we'll eventually have to in most fields to secure a healthy economy. There's just too many people that lack a higher education in this country that could be left behind in an ever increasingly intellectually driven job market. Relying on overseas markets to produce goods has weakened our economy and caused a huge separation in the classes. This trend, if continued, will eventually create a lower class of Americans that will become so poor they'll become wards of the government. In this year 2011 45% of the population didn't pay taxes. We need to turn this around before it's too late. Remember it isn't us and them in this country. We live in a fish bowl. Everyone affects the whole system. Crap in one corner of the bowl and eventually it'll contaminate the whole bowl.
A little confusing at first but picks up and travels. One of Barry's better books.
But I had to quit listening part way through because the guy just reads it like he's trying to get done with a bad book. This guy can't even interest himself in his own book.
Campfire stuff. OK writing but didn't have much of an unpredictable punch. Mainstream story telling.
It's good sci-fi. Seems to go back to that old Twilight Zone episode about getting a younger body and the wife doesn't get one. But this story revolves around health being the deciding factor. This story continues where the TZ story left off.
It had some interesting stuff and good explanations for curtain phenomenon which I didn't know before. If you like science over conspiracy/paranormal bullshit.
If you woke up this morning thinking you saw Goofy in a cloud and thought it was a sign from God and really wanted to believe it, then this is not your book. This book will burst you imaginary bubble and bring you back to reality.
Not being a BAR type person I couldn't get into the whole bar scene no matter how 'alien' it got. And the pun material just left me dry. There's very few puns that do anything for me but just make me want to walk away.
I know this has a cult following, mainly people who think the bar actually exists and this should have been a clue for me. Unfortunately the mainstream story lines don't really do it for me. Give me sci fi with deep thought.
Some really interesting stuff in here. Some stuff bared repeating to get all the info and understand it. I liked it, good stuff.
The first part of the book is about as lackluster as you can get and takes too long to get to the meat of the story. But it does pay off in the end. Not a great book but entertaining.
The saucer series is fairly basic story telling but it's good, fun adventure stuff. I guess this is the third and final book and takes the story to a final destination, another world which we don't visit in this book but would be interesting Mr. Coonts ... Just sayin'.
But worth a listen if there's nothing else out there. The Narrator sounded like he didn't give a damn about reading it. He lacked any kind of enthusiasm, might as well been reading a text book on biology.
The story was kind of interesting about a guy, who through an accidental amputation, begins amputating on purpose so he can create the ultimate prosthesis.
