    Story
    (142)

    Early in his career, Jerry Culpepper could never have been accused of being idealistic. Doing public relations—even for politicians—was strictly business...until he was hired as NASA’s public affairs director and discovered a client he could believe in. Proud of the agency’s history and sure of its destiny, he was thrilled to be a part of its future—a bright era of far-reaching space exploration.

    Story
    Where does The Cassandra Project rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a Military- SiFi buff that will go for a good mystery if a description caches me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The environment seems to draw on a variety of sub cultures to form a society that is almost believable, the depiction of the NASA community is a subtle critique of the US Space program.

    However the book suffers from putting a fake cowboy style Elon Musk as the main antagonist. With the exception of Henry Kissinger real people are kept in the background.

    The main plot is a conspiracy theorist dream involving Nixon, the Russians ,secret moon landings with a 40 year coverup.


    The general ending is visible from a a mile away, to anyone who have seen 2001 a space odyssey or transformers 3. Altho the specific ending is eluted to you don't see the biggest oh du why didn't i see that until the final chapter.

    I am a moderate liberal, so the libertarian Bucky and total ineffectual politicians is a bit grading and at the same time seems to be a bit to realistic.















    What about Brian Holsopple’s performance did you like?

    All voice ranges are proffered very well done


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I finished this book in less than 18 hours, and the again a few days later.


    Any additional comments?


    Spoiler warning: Christians may be offended by the ending.
