    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    "almost the worst narrator ever ..."

    ... almost

    This is probably a pretty good book. It's a very interesting premise. But, it is impossible to listen to.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    One of those rarities. Style, substance and execution come together in near perfection. I finished this book a couple of weeks ago. Despite having taken in two more perfectly good "reads" since, the dreamlike memory of The Night Circus lingers and pervades.

  • State of Fear

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    "Who are you? And, what have you done with Crichton"
    Overall

    No - I'm not a hard-core global warming enthusiast. I'm not a hard-core anything, really. And, I have until now always enjoyed Crichton's yarns. But, this piece of one sided propaganda fails at every level.

    Usually, one has the impression that MC has just enough scientific research behind his work to inform a really good story. But, here - all that one can clearly discern is that he has a heaving bucket full of poorly written tripe.

    If that's not enough ... I will never, ever listen to anything read by George Wilson. Previous posts re the sounds of his bodily functions have been overly polite. Both George and the producer of this offering should be let go.
