    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    Peter Tersteeg says: "Excellent story, terrible naration"

    Would you try another book from Arthur C. Clarke and/or Peter Ganim and Robert J. Sawyer (Introduction) ?

    Yes I like the way this book is written and it has a good story line.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rendezvous with Rama?

    No real memorable moments the book in general was good. I just wanted to bash my brains out because of how slow the reader was.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The guy needs to learn to read a little better before trying a book that a lot of people listen to.


    Was Rendezvous with Rama worth the listening time?

    Not quite done yet but the story is definitely worth the slow moaning of the reader.

  • Crown of Slaves

    Story
    (241)

    The Star Kingdom's ally Erewhon is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Add to that the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon's stellar back yard, a problem which High Ridge also ignores.

    Charlie Russel says: "Eric Flint makes this MUCH better"
    "Mundane and boring"

    What disappointed you about Crown of Slaves?

    Crown of Slaves is a hypocritical wirlwind of a continuous, boring conversation.


    What could David Weber and Eric Flint have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Add some excitment
