    Story
    (2616)

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "Daniel Suarez does it again!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Kill Decision again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Kill Decision again. Actually, I am re-listening to his first two books right now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think Suarez is a master of synthesizing current trends in technology and culture, and then placing them in a time just a bit over the horizon.


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has great presence and brings a sense of immediacy to the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither...but I was extremely entertained.

    Story
    (409)

    Famed investigative journalist Eric Schlosser digs deep to uncover secrets about the management of America's nuclear arsenal. A groundbreaking account of accidents, near misses, extraordinary heroism, and technological breakthroughs, Command and Control explores the dilemma that has existed since the dawn of the nuclear age: How do you deploy weapons of mass destruction without being destroyed by them? That question has never been resolved - and Schlosser reveals how the combination of human fallibility and technological complexity still poses a grave risk to mankind.

    Ethan M. says: "A miracle that we escaped the Cold War alive...."
    "Spectacular!"

    Story
    If you could sum up Command and Control in three words, what would they be?

    This is a masterful telling of a very complicated and involved story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The mix of history, technology, and personalities.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick is, as always, a great, great reader.
