  • The Complete Short Stories

    • UNABRIDGED (65 hrs and 1 min)
    • By J. G. Ballard
    • Narrated By Ric Jerrrom, William Gaminara, Sean Barrett, and others

    A collection of 98 enthralling and pulse-quickening stories, spanning five decades, venerates the remarkable imagination of J. G. Ballard. With a body of work unparalleled in twentieth-century literature, J. G. Ballard is recognized as one of the greatest and most prophetic writers in the world. With the much-hailed release of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard, readers now have a means to celebrate the unmatched range and mesmerizing cadences of a literary genius.

    anthony says: "horrid peroid references with blathering."
    "horrid peroid references with blathering."
    Would you try another book from J. G. Ballard and/or the narrators?

    This was a wasted credit. Hard to listen to. Made my ears bleed. 60 hours of every bad line this guy ever penned.
    Narrator was good despite the content. Some of the stories were like poorly contrived twilight zone episodes. The remainder were just rot.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by a writer who isn't trying to be witty and turn a bad phrase every other sentence. One that is missing dated references and awful drivel that confounds instead of relaying a thought or idea.

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    They took dirt and put it into a bucket. That's all I can say here because the content was poorly written. Dated.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Complete Short Stories?

    I would have sent the manuscript back for a burning and a burial at sea. Some things should not be published. The paper could have served a more useful purpose as toilet tissue.

    Any additional comments?

    I think that about says it all.

  • Shadowmarch: Shadowmarch, Volume I

    • UNABRIDGED (29 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Tad Williams
    • Narrated By Dick Hill
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    For generations the misty Shadowline has marked the boundary between the lands of men and the lost northern lands that are the lair of their inhuman enemies, the ageless Qar. But now that boundary line is moving outward, threatening to engulf the northernmost land in which humans still live - the kingdom of Southmarch.

    Laura says: "By Far, NOT Williams' Best"
    "Horrible story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone in prison or stranded on a desert island. You know. People with nothing to do and nothing else to read.

    What was most disappointing about Tad Williams’s story?

    The whole story

    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    I like dicks voice even know its not a theatrical reading

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger at wasting a credit. Disappointment at audible carrying tad Williams tripe.

    Any additional comments?

  • Brightness Reef: The Uplift Trilogy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (25 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By David Brin
    • Narrated By George Wilson

    Persecuted refugees from six separate alien races have migrated to the idyllic planet Jijo. And despite their incredible diversity, the inhabitants live together in blissful harmony. However, settlement on Jijo is illegal - and it's only a matter of time before the residents of this forbidden paradise are discovered by the galactic powers-that-be.

    Chas says: "Hard Core Sci-Fi at it's best!"
    "Awful repetitive boring horrible story line"

    This book was terrible. Boring. You could see where it was going thruout the entire book. I didn't finish it. The repetitive way in which it is written is elementary and amateurish it seems like the author was trying to cover this fact with an overload ridiculous alien races and information about them.
    it you have insomnia then this is ur book it will literally put you to sleep
