    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    Would you listen to Pathfinder again? Why?

    The theories of time travel and space folding are distinct from any other book I've read. I was very captiviated throughout the adventure.


    Any additional comments?

    There was room left for a possible series. I hope this becomes a series.

  • Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose

    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    If you could sum up Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose in three words, what would they be?

    No better book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose?

    The lecture on thievery that Jean Val Jean gives to Montparnasse about the difficulty behind stealing. After that speech, it's unthinkable that anyone would rationally turn to a life of stealing that wasn't at the last threads of desperation.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard George Guidall's readings before, but he did a marvelous job. I was clinging to every word.


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

    This book will take weeks to get through, but you'll wish it took longer.


    Any additional comments?

    They just don't write with this kind of education and insight anymore.

    Story
    (705)

    Lanik Mueller is a "rad" - radical regenerative - a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft. But it is a promise which may never be fulfilled, as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Treason to be better than the print version?

    I read this book, probably 20 years ago, and it was my favorite book. That's why I chose this book as my test-case for the audio book experience. It reminded me, again, why Treason was my favorite book. It explores many realms of the mind, and body through science fiction.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Card's bravery in exploring so many diverse themes.


    Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

    The reader, Stefan Rudnicki was particularly adept at assigning accents to key sub-characters and remaining true to them throughout the story. Fantastic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was particularly impressed with the discoveries towards the end of the book that were planted early on in the reading.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I read of Orson Scott Card, and now the first audio book was fittingly this one. Card is a Science Fiction Genius. Thanks, Audible, for picking this one up in your library.
