    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    What disappointed you about Redshirts?

    Writing style is not good for audio. I slept to this on a plane.


    Has Redshirts turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Maybe

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Story

    If you have any interest in technology this is a must read. Reading about Kevin's story will take you on a journey through the 80s and 90s showing just how much technology and the Internet was vulnerable during this time and in many ways still is today.

    Before 9/11 America was protected by a covert force known as the National Crisis Management Center. Commonly known as Op-Center, this silent, secret mantel guarded the American people and protected the country from enemies. The charter was top secret and Director Paul Hood reported directly to the president. Op-Center used undercover operatives with SWAT capabilities to diffuse crises around the world, and they were tops in their field. But after the World Trade Center disaster, in the interest of streamlining, OP-Center was disbanded - leaving the country in terrible danger.

    Story

    His voice just didn't work for me. When he tried to do accents they just failed. Could not get engaged.

    This is far from the engaging stories that previous Clancy books provided. It seemed to jump around a lot and you never get attached to any character. I miss Jack Ryan already.
