    Hello there.

    This is a seven part series, but because of rights reasons Australians will only be able to obtain
    from Audible:

    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3
    Part 7

    SO, save yourself the heartache. Give this a miss if you're Aussie.

    In fact, if you're non-American, maybe you should check to see if you can get parts 4 5 and 6 before you start.

    "I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player in a interstellar chess match to save humanity. Seventeen years old. Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope."

    Hello there.

    This is a good book. However, it's not a good read without reading Old Man's War, The Ghost Brigade, and The Lost Colony. These Audiobooks are being blocked for sale in Australia. I searched the Net and I couldn't find CD versions for import.

    So save yourself the heart ache and give this one a miss.

    A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most unusual way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: A type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinaire.

    If you could sum up The Android's Dream in three words, what would they be?

    Fast paced, witty, action-packed.


    What other book might you compare The Android's Dream to and why?

    Fuzzy Nation. Same combination of fast paced action, sharp laugh-out-loud humor and a similarly hilarious court scene.


    Which character ??? as performed by Wil Wheaton ??? was your favorite?

    Creek.
