    It was January 2021, and Rick Deckard had a license to kill. Somewhere among the hordes of humans out there lurked several rogue androids. Deckard's assignment: find them and then..."retire" them. Trouble was, the androids all looked exactly like humans, and they didn't want to be found!

    What did you like best about Blade Runner? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the ideas presented in the book but Philip K Dick's writing style is a little dry in parts. Scifi doesn't tend to age as well as some other genres but if you're interested in Scifi Noir it's a good one to have read.

    Unfortunately the reading was a little too dreary for my taste. To Scott Brick's credit much of the book is supposed to be oppressive but there were scenes (police correspondences, action scenes) that should have been delivered without the characters sounding like they're overwhelmed with despair.


    Was Blade Runner worth the listening time?

    I think the book is worth reading but I would recommend getting it in paperback.

    In Northern Genabackis, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flatlands. Their intention is to wreak havoc amongst the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong, it marks the beginning of what will prove to be an extraordinary destiny.

    Where does House of Chains rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I believe this is my favorite book of the Malazan series so far. He spends a greater amount of time on a smaller cast of characters which allows for a lot more interesting character development.


    Any additional comments?

    There was some griping about the reader changing from Ralph Lister to Michael Page - I'll admit I wish the pronunciations and character voices had been more consistent with the previous books but Michael made a good performance. It's always a bit jarring when an actor changes mid-performance but that blame should be on the studio rather than the new guy.
