    In her first novel since 2002, Nebula and Hugo award-winning author Connie Willis returns with a stunning, enormously entertaining novel of time travel, war, and the deeds - great and small - of ordinary people who shape history. In the hands of this acclaimed storyteller, the past and future collideand the result is at once intriguing, elusive, and frightening.

    What disappointed you about Blackout?

    The plot is progressing very slowly I was bored after few hours


    What was most disappointing about Connie Willis’s story?

    I red several of her novel including the previous ones on the time travel but they were more interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren and Connie Willis ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narration is good, the problem is probably in the story

    Story
    (1232)

    Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe for cyberpunk SF fans, I see this book got good reviews.


    Has The Diamond Age turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No more cyberpunk for me


    How could the performance have been better?

    better narrator

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."
