  • The Diamond Age

    Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

    "Fantastic book - Wonderful Narration"
    Overall

    Based on the reviews, it looks like people either love this book, or hate it. It is long, but I would not recommend trying the abridged version. Take the time to listen to the unabridged version. It's worth it. The author's imagined ideas about the possible structures and capabilities of nano-tech are incredible. His vision of the future makes me wish I was born later, but at the same time makes me happy I don't live in that place/time.

    I'd also like to say Jennifer Wiltsie does one of the best narrator job as I have heard after listening to 30 books. She is a true professional.

    Spectacular book. Enjoyable listen. A must have.

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    Story
    (365)

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "A new experience for me"
    Overall

    I have read sci-fi/fiction for many years. I've read many exciting, interesting and wonderful stories. Some are entertaining, some are thought provoking and open my eyes to new ideas. This is the first book I can remember in my entire life that actually touched me beyond an intellectual entertainment level. This book actually left me with strong emotional feelings for the characters. When I finished the book I went and held my wife and told her how much my life with her means to me.

    Time traveler or not, the good women always wait.
