    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitively recommend this book to anyone, not just my friends. This book is a very well thought out, make you think, story. It creates a world just like ours and plays out what would happen if a new world was presented before us.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Freedom (TM)?

    Very difficult, with so many people and places, I would have to say the last time Seabeck meets with Sobel. I knew what he would say, but just shows how crazy and ingenious Sobel was.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    One of the best performances I have heard. He does an outstanding job and will be looking for more audio books he has read.


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

    I wanted to...but it was just too tough, a long audio book but couldn't wait to get back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    This might be my favorite book of all time! I love the premise and the story was wonderfully presented to me.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Erica says: "Possibly The Best Techno-thriller Ever"

    What did you love best about Daemon?

    I love how this could actually happen in our world right now. The writing was top notch and flowed easily.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I'd say for the first hour it wasn't too thrilling but after that, it was non-stop and I hated having to stop listening. The weaves of stories/characters made you feel that at each turn you'd think you'd learn more but found another layer that was believable and intriguing


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Gurner – was your favorite?

    Pete Seabeck, nailed the gritty cop sound.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A technology thriller that won't let go

    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked Ron Rifkin as The Giver but not as Jonas, a little too whiny at times with his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was amazing at bringing you along for the ride, the most sad part was Jonas seeing what the 'release' was. Really good character development and would recommend to anyone. As with others, the cheesy music was really bad and sometimes made it tough to hear the story.
