    Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea - a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA - past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways - and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks. But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If you have the capability, listen at double speed. I read a lot of the comments before downloading and was hesitant. I felt like Casey Affleck's pace was too slow to keep me interested long enough. At double speed (on iPhone it is faster but not pitched higher) I hardly noticed it was double speed.


    If you’ve listened to books by Ben Mezrich before, how does this one compare?

    Again, at double speed, it was better than not. However, I remember enjoying Bringing Down the House a bit more.


    What three words best describe Casey Affleck’s performance?

    Pace too slow.


    Did Sex on the Moon inspire you to do anything?

    Remind me to keep a close eye on my college-bound son.

  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    Story
    (4851)

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Very compelling concept; but lost steam at the end"

    Story
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was a bit disappointed in the end - not only with the primary conflict ending (not spoiling), but with the fact that there was no resolution as to what happened to the main characters going forward.


    What about Raul Esparza’s performance did you like?

    He had a very wide range of characters he had to portray - men, women, old, young - thought he did a great job. May have been a little slow, but that may be more my particular taste. I played it most of the time at 1.5x speed.


    If you could take any character from Under the Dome out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Julia, the newspaper reporter - she seemed pretty tough and wouldn't back down from anybody. Plus, if I lived in that town, I'd want to know what she knows.
