    After a dangerous tour of duty in the Great South Sea, Jack and Stephen finally return to their families in England. For Jack, the return is joyful, but for Stephen, it is heartbreaking. His wife, Diana, has left for parts unknown; his young daughter has all the symptoms of autism. To escape these painful circumstances, Stephen joins Jack on a bizarre decoy mission to the lagoons of the Gulf of Guinea.

    Jonathan says: "Patrick Tull is a master"
    "One of the more enjoyable."
    Overall

    In some of the books in this series nothing good happens till the very end; whereas this one, similiar to some of the early books, has a mix of good & bad experiences. The story moves along quite quickly too, but this is probably due to it being a shorter audio book (i.e., <11 hrs compared with 20-30 hrs of some of the other books).

    It was a miracle of science that permitted human beings to live, if not forever then for a long, long time. Some people, anyway. The rich, the powerful, they lived their lives at the rate of one year every 10. Some created two societies: that of people who lived out their normal span and died, and those who slept away the decades, skipping over the intervening years and events. It allowed great plans to be put into motion. It allowed interstellar empires to be built.

    Lisa says: "Early Work of a Master"
    "odd bunch of stories"
    Overall

    This was on OK audio book. Its definitely not a happy one. Many moral issues are covered throughout. More than once I had to pause and reflect on the actions taken by the characters. You can tell Card's Mormon background influenced this story (i.e., several themes of man creating his own world & being god like).

    I would be hard pressed to give it one star, as I did listen to the whole thing, including the short stories. Overall though, I think there are more interesting stories to read & consider.
