    Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot 97. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of the ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorby himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.

    Overall

    I've never been big into sci-fi and had never read this author before, but I'm glad I did and I intend to read more. The narator is amazing with his use of accents and voices to seperate characters. The author does an excellent job of integrating polititcs and entertainment. He explains technical details just enough without overloading a lay person.

    I had a hard time putting this one down. Highly recommended.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Overall

    Having read all of the other reviews I will say that this book is not for everyone. It is not really a book about travel, rather a book about journey. I think hearing the autobiographical story in the author's own voice really adds to the experience.

    Yes, the book deals with divorce and depression, but it also deals with spiritual, philosophical and practical matters as well. She handles them with respect and wit at the same time.

    I enjoyed this book so much that I bought it for everyone close to me. They all greatly enjoyed it as well. Thanks to Liz we're all now learning Itlaian together.
