    Who better to narrate today's best science-fiction stories than today's favorite science-fiction stars? This exciting collection features many.

    "Nice Road Trip Book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this audio book and was entertained on my extended drive to Atlanta. I agree with the other reviewer on the transition between stories; there is none, one story ends the next begins. Was not too big of a deal but I found myself wondering what was the title to that story and is that really Roddy McDowall??? I also had problems with the volume of the narration being different from one story to the next. The stories wont blow your mind however, it was worth the one credit for entertainment value.

    Story

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"

    Overall

    Non-Cyberpunks need not apply. If you've never heard of Second Life, if you don't appreciate techie gadgets, online gaming, skateboard chicks, samurai swords and robot dogs you won't get this book.

    There are some slow spots where Stephenson does some heavy lifting about religion and langague, but hang in there it ties in very nicely and it's one heck of a ride.

    West Virginia, 1966. For thirteen months the town of Point Pleasant is gripped by a real-life nightmare that culminates in a tragedy that makes headlines around the world. Strange occurrences and sightings, including a bizarre winged apparition that becomes known as the Mothman, trouble this ordinary American community. And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery.

    Marc says: "Smart, compelling, disturbing"

    Overall

    Oh my. It was very hard to take this audio book seriously. It is the digital equivalent to a campfire ghost story. Or am I being mislead by extra-terrestrial beings and mysterious men in black suits. I jumped into this without doing any research. Bad move on my part.

    "Interesting, Kinda"
    Overall

    Not really entertaining, just background noise on another road trip. It was like listening to one of those History Channel UFO programs but without the neato graphics and commercials. Not as compelling as The Mothman Prophecies but similar in nature. I didnt like that one either.

    Story

    Tom Clancy's most shocking story to date - and closer to reality than any government would care to admit. John Clark, newly named head of an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism, faces a terrorist group so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on this earth as we know it.

    Benjamin says: "GREAT BOOK! (the narrator isn't that bad)"
    "THANK GOODNESS I READ THE BOOK"
    Overall

    Another audible book for a long road trip. Had I not been a captive audience it would have stopped and deleted from my player.

    Dukes narration made this almost unbearable. If you dont believe me listen to the sample and imagine 6 hours of it. Im actually mad at myself because I also have Without Remorse which Dukes viscerated with equal style. So bad that I could not finish it, shame on me

    The only thing that got me though this book was fast pace of the story and Clancys legendary attention to detail in all things military.
