  • The Hemingway Hoax

    The hoax proposed to John Baird by a two-bit con man in a seedy Key West bar was shady but potentially profitable. With little left to lose, the struggling, middle-aged Hemingway scholar agreed to forge a manuscript and pass it off as Papa's lost masterpiece. But Baird never realized his actions would shatter the history of his own Earth - and others. And now the unsuspecting academic is trapped out of time - propelled through a series of grim parallel worlds and pursued by an interdimensional hitman with a literary license to kill.

    Rivkeleh says: "Clever idea; distracted focus"
    "Ok but not one of Haldeman's best"
    Overall

    I have liked all of Haldeman's books so far, but this was not on par with the ones I have read. It was to far fetched without being able to explain itself. to many things were left unexplained.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

    At key points throughout North America, an invasion force is taking over communications, government, industry, and people's bodies. And the nation is helpless to stop it, because the invaders multiply far faster than they can be destroyed, controlling the mind of every unsuspecting person they encounter. Enter Sam Cavanaugh, a can-do intelligence officer for the United States' most secret service. Cavanaugh is the only man who can stop the invaders. But to do that he'll have to be invaded himself.

    Mike From Mesa says: "An old favorite, but poorly narrated"
    "Good book good narator"
    Overall

    The book was pretty good...some things were dated but for a book from 1951 he got alot of things right but some very wrong. I liked he language as it very 1950ish which gave a glimps into how different people spoke what is now long ago (60 years).

    Charles Chilton's classic science-fiction trilogy stormed the BBC airwaves during the 1950s. Its gripping story lines, extra-terrestrial sound effects, and atmospheric music engaged listeners as never before. Between 1953 and 1958, a devoted audience of adults and children attentively followed Captain Jet Morgan and his crew from one cliff-hanger to another as, together, they faced the unknown perils of space.

    Niels J. Rasmussen says: "Well Worth It Despite A Slow Start..."
    "Different...a view of the 50's"
    Overall

    The series was good and it let you see how the average person view space in the 50's. It reminded me of movie from the 50's.

    In the third installment of the film that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name, John Connor is older and is still a target for killer machines from the future. The human resistance sends back the Terminator who saved his life when he was just a boy to protect him from an even more lethal Terminator model: the Terminatrix - in the shape of a woman and capable of making all previous Terminators seem slow and stupid. If Connor doesn't survive, the future is lost...

    The reader was very good. The book complimented the movie very well filling in alot that could not be told in the movie. I plan on seeing the movie later this week to see if what I learned in the book was in the movie.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Good book great reader"

    Edward Herman is a great reader. The book was very good story and show what WWII solders went thru.

    One of hundreds of simple homicides each year, indistinguishable from any other in 1938, was the death of a spinster nurse killed in her apartment. A suspect is caught and convicted. Private Investigator Fintan Dunne is lured into the case and coerced by conscience into unraveling the setup that has put an innocent man on death row. Following the trail leads him into a murder conspiracy of a scope that defies imagination.

    William R. Creech says: "Unusual 1930s style mystery"
    "Interesting but..."

    The book was interesting. I actually liked the side stories better than the main story. O a whole it was ok.

    Bringing together all of the James Bond short stories in one volume for the first time, this is the ultimate celebration of suave and deadly secret agent 007. Whether he's making an unexpected discovery in the Bahamas, hunting down a Cuban hit man in wild country, smashing an international drug ring in Rome, or on the trail of a murderous assassin in Berlin's sniper alley, dangerous missions and beautiful women come with the job for James Bond. And this agent is always a consummate professional.

    Gregory says: "Top Notch"
    "Entertaining and different"
    Overall

    The book was entertaining. Written in the late 50's Early 60's it gives a sence of the time and a different side to James Bond.

    The book was a good listen. The narrator did a good job. As someone said in a previous review it was dated but not for the techology only but for the attitudes.
