    Time and again, the daring pair have braved countless dangers to emerge victorious. But now Flinx attempts something that may be impossible for the heretofore undefeated hero. His mission: to take a vacation. Never have the cares of the universe lain so heavily on Flinx's shoulders, nor the forces arrayed against him seemed so invincible.

    If you have enjoyed any of the other Pip and Flinx books you should not miss this one. Flinx' encounters with the Aan in tis books provide a nice viewpoint. A perspective on how something can be both truly alien and truly human at once. A good space adventure that is both relaxing and entertaining

    Legends tell of the evil god Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur. Prophecy also speaks of a time when he will again awaken to seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb has been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time is at hand. Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter, Polgara the arch-Sorceress, are on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster. With them goes Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle.

    Story

    This second installment in the Belgariad is just as enjoyable as the first. Cameron's reading is excellent and he manages to bring the characters to life. A lovely fantasy adventure, that incorporates the best of family values. The story of a boy on his way to manhood, and the people who guide him along the way. A good listen for juveniles as well

    Moth was a beautiful planet, the only one with wings - two great golden clouds suspended in space around it. Here was a wide-open world for any venture a man might scheme. The planet attracted unwary travelers, hardened space-sailors, and merchant buccaneers - a teeming, constantly shifting horde that provided a comfortable income for certain quick-witted fellows like Flinx and his pet flying snake Pip.

    Story

    For those who don't know the adventures of Pip and Flinx. I would recommend this. One of the first space adventure books I ever read. It remains as entertaining in audio format. Unassuming it is a true space adventure that does not overwhelm with too much science. Something that you can really sit back and enjoy

    A Study in Emerald draws listeners in through carefully revealed details as a consulting detective and his narrator friend solve the mystery of a murdered German noble. But with its subtle allusions and surprise ending, this mystery hints that the real fun in solving this case lies in imagining all the details that Gaiman doesn't reveal, and challenges listeners to be detectives themselves.

    Story

    Typical Neil Gaiman Fare. A wonderful short story that puts a nice twist on Sherlock Holmes. The purist may not appreciate this. I would however recommend the story for anyone else that likes Holmes and does not mind an alternate point of view.

    Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer.

    Story

    Not at all what I expected. Having heard the hype, but not having seen the movie, I gave this a try. It might make a particular statement about the harsh realities faced by Gays in part of the US. It is however not something that I would recommend for the sensitive listener. It is a harsh statement of reality.

    It caused instant addiction, followed by an excruciating slow death, and there was no known antidote. It was a killer. Supposedly the drug had been totally eradicated from the humanx galaxy years before. At least that's what everyone thought. But somehow, mysteriously, that dreadful substance was back in circulation on Repler and threatening to wreak havoc throughout the known galaxy.Someone somewhere was secretly manufacturing Bloodhype, but nobody seemed to know where or who!

    Story

    I long time fan of the Pip and Flinx Adventures, I was delighted to see that audible would add the entire series. What was even better is that that would retain continuity by having Stefan Rudnicki read the entire series. I enjoyed this book in particular, as it is less serious than the others and has a definite homorous slant to it. A relaxing enjoyable adventure.
