  • Oryx and Crake

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 29 mins)

    Story
    (807)

    As the story opens, Snowman is sleeping in a tree, mourning the loss of his beloved Oryx and his best friend Crake, and slowly starving to death. How did everything fall apart so quickly? Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories? Alone except for the green-eyed Children of Crake, he explores the answers to these questions in the double journey he takes - into his own past, and back to Crake's high-tech bubble-dome, where the Paradice Project unfolded and the world came to grief.

    The great narration, coupled with Atwood's imagination made this a memorable ride. Well worth the time! I would like to see more stories like this one.

    Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the grandest epics in the annals of imaginative literature. Now Herbert's son, Brian, working with Kevin J. Anderson and using Frank Herbert's own notes, reveals a pivotal epoch in the history of the Dune universe: the Butlerian Jihad, the war that was fought ten thousand years before the events of Dune - the war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines."

    Brian says: "enoyed premise but not execution"
    "Where's the end?"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book, but I felt it was published before it was completed.
    Good narration otherwise.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Stefan Rudnicki, Harlan Ellison, Gabrielle de Cuir

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Great audiobook for SF fans..."
    Overall

    Well read audiobook! I also listened to some of Card's other audiobooks here on Audible and recommend you follow through the Ender trilogy, each book was a worthy listening experience.

  • Even the Sun Will Die: An Interview with Eckhart Tolle

    When Eckhart Tolle agreed to be interviewed on September 11, 2001, he could not foresee the historic nature of this date or the suffering that would follow. As the day's events unfolded, in real time, he responded with a calm and clear voice, helping to make sense out of the fear and chaos that will forever define this date. Even the Sun Will Die documents this historic meeting with Eckhart Tolle and the comforting wisdom he revealed that day.

    Wayne says: "GREAT Insights"
    "What is the message here?"
    Overall

    I don't believe Eckhart was able to articulate his message in a meaningful way. I do not recommend this title.
