    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.

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

    The narration was excellent. Just excellent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I particularly enjoyed the personality of the characters.


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

    The narrator did exactly what he was supposed to do: Read the text while adding just the right amount of emotion without becoming annoying. It's not easy to find a voice that you can listen to for 16 hours.


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

    I laughed often at the wit of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book, I highly recommend.

    Story
    (2559)

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Story

    Hamilton will be throwing character after character your way for several chapters, so I do recommend paying close attention in the beginning. How their tales intertwine as the plot unfolds is genius. This could be overwhelming for some, but I found the exercise of following the story very rewarding. Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga is a sophisticated masterpiece, so it may not appeal to the more "casual" reader.

    If you like this book, then you will definitely like the sequel, "Pandora's Star", as well as the "Void Trilogy". I will never tire of John Lee's voice and his skill at narrating.

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    Story
    (1785)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Story

    I really liked it. Having read Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land", I was optimistic about this book. Definitely not disppointed. The Narrator did an excellent job with the "Loonie" accent. I highly recommend.
