So getting humanity's trust is a challenge. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal. Enter Thomas Stein, who knows something about closing deals.

    The world’s attention is focused on the historic plans of the U.S. and Iranian presidents to lay down their swords. But on the African continent, one man holds the power to obliterate the peace by unleashing terror and global chaos - and no one sees it coming. Hiding behind the bloody madness of tribal warfare in the Horn of Africa, Iranian functionary-turned-fanatic Bani Aberhadji has achieved the impossible - single-handedly creating a vast, invisible network dedicated to the construction, delivery, and detonation of a nuclear nightmare. Only by chance are American agents now learning of its existence, and it may already be too late.

    Story

    This book was a huge disappointment. I have read all the Dreamland books before this and everyone had me interested start to finish. This book literally made me fall asleep several times. Its set about 15 years after the events in Romania from the last book. The main characters we all know and love are now gone. Zen and Brianna are no longer pilots and have a kid. Dog is mentioned a couple times in passing but thats it. The book is focused, rather poorly, on a new Whiplash team led by Danny Freah, no Megafortress or ANY dreamland tech for that matter. Unfortunately I will not read the rest of the series and I am VERY disappointed by that.

    In Taylor Anderson's acclaimed Destroyermen series, a parallel universe adds an extraordinary layer to the drama of World War II. Now, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, the crew of the USS Walker, and their allies battle an ever-growing host of enemies across the globe in a desperate battle for freedom.

    Story

    This is the most entertaining series I have personally read/listened. Taylor Anderson's Military knowledge paints a very vivid picture. His story telling Keeps you glued to the story. And the story itself has evolved into an epic masterpiece. Its hard to read this and not fall in love with most of the characters.
    The worst part of this book is that know that its over I have to wait another year or so for the next one.

  • Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: A Book by Patton Oswalt

    Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

    I bought this because I am a big fan of Patton Oswalt. I was expecting something completely different. This read was all over the map and the humorous parts were entertaining, unfortunately there were not enough of them to keep me interested. This is the first Audio book I had to shut off mid way through.
    I then went and watched one of his stand up specials, and he redeemed himself!

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "Great at times/not so great at others"
    Overall

    The five stories as a whole really painted a great picture of this future world. The first story may have been a bit better if Colonel Tigh, read consistantly. At times he was whispering like he was out of breath at others he was animated where it didnt work.

    The second story was the my personal favorite of the five, solid story and a very entertaining narrative.

    The 3rd story was pretty horrible, not really sure how it fit in or for that matter what is was about, the narration also wasnt that great, I guess the BSG crew needs to stick to acting.

    The 4th story would have been a lot better if the narrator left out half of the "he said, she saids" we could have easily followed along with out that bit of distraction and annoyance. Overall though a good listen

    The fifth and final story was also outstanding with great narration. It was a good listen.

    I will most likely purchase the sequel next.
