    Story

    I would recommend this book to all you big spenders, asking themselves why they have a piece of the month left after your salary is finished. Some tips are easy, some are a bit more difficult to implement. The story is good, the reader does a good job but I have heard better. I have listened twice to this book and found out that I already had implemented some of the tips without exactly knowing why I did it. It just felt good... Know I know the backgrounds and feel more confident about planning, budgeting and long term financial planning.

    Don't follow the crowd, don't buy the latest gadgets, phones, cars etc. Buy this book and learn. You will be rich in your mind and long term, financially as well!

    Stranger in a Strange Land tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, an earthling born and educated on Mars, who arrives on Earth with superhuman powers and a total ignorance of the mores of man. Smith is destined to become a freak, a media commodity, a scam artist, a searcher, and finally, a messiah.

    What did you love best about Stranger in a Strange Land?

    Excellent performance by the narrator, wonderful story. Classic story, though I just onderstood it in the last chapters. But maybe that's me being slow in understanding, I loved it that way...


    What other book might you compare Stranger in a Strange Land to and why?

    There's nothing to compare this book with IMHO. It's a classic and now I know why. If you don't know yet, listen to this audiobook and you'll know.


    Any additional comments?

    A classic. Must have read, must have listened to. My life is now complete. I love you.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Any additional comments?

    Buy the special anniversary edition, including authors postscript!
    The film is in the making, but as the author self says in the postscript, this will be a very difficult film to make.
