I listen and read books for entertainment. Just the joy of getting lost in that world provides an outlet from day to day stress.

    NYPD detective Paul Donner and his wife Elise were killed in a hold-up gone wrong. Fifty years later, Donner is back: revived courtesy of the Shift. Supposedly the unintended side-effect of a botched biological terrorist attack and carried by a ubiquitous retrovirus, the Shift jump-starts dead DNA and throws the life cycle into reverse, so reborns like Donner must cope with the fact that they are not only slowly youthing toward a new childhood, but have become New York's most hated minority.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This novel had a little of everything for me. Mystery, sci-fi, gumshoe detective and a good plot. Even if you are not a sci-fi fan, I believe you would still enjoy this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the main character who is the police detective who is killed in the beginning of the novel and is reborn as a "Reeb" which is now the most hated minority in NYC known in the future at Necropolis. The story revolves around these "reborn" people who come back after death and age in the opposite direction by youthing out of existance. Very original premise with a large congolomerate run by the female villian who is behind the entire process.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Highly recommended. Mr. Dempsey paints a excellent picture of the future in 50 years from now along with many references to current day which helps make the story more believable. It will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.

    Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries are critically acclaimed. Longmire's third outing takes him from Wyoming to Philadelphia to investigate a brutal assault on his daughter, Cady. Walt believes her ex-boyfriend is behind the crime and searches him out. But when he turns up dead, Walt is back to square one.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kindness Goes Unpunished to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version therefore I cannot answer this question.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    With the different subplots and the addition of meeting Vic's family, I found the story hard to put down. It provided background on her character and how Walt interacts with them. Also, we have more background on his relationship with his daughter Katie.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The careful interchange between the characters. He brings them to life with his inflections and how they interact with each other.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Its hard to go unnoticed when you are in a powder blue vintage convertible with a Cowboy, Indian, Brunette and a dog inside.


    Any additional comments?

    I started reading these after watching and loving the Longmire series on television. As we always say, the books are much better.

    Robust, peaceful, and confident, the Commonwealth dispatched a ship to investigate the mystery of a disappearing star, only to inadvertently unleash a predatory alien species that turned on its liberators, striking hard, fast, and utterly without mercy.The Prime are the Commonwealth's worst nightmare. Coexistence is impossible with the technologically advanced aliens, who are genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life.

    Story
    Would you listen to Judas Unchained again? Why?

    Yes, it is quite long, but I feel that was necessary to build up characters, background on the aliens, and work through each scene. I know many have complained of the length of the saga, but I find that the most enjoyable. The worlds and characters are so well developed that I don't mind that its long. (Game of Thrones fan here.)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite by all accounts has to be Paula Miyo(sp?) and Melanie. He explores their weaknesses and through both books takes us though their character development. This sci-fi has a detective story, love story and many triangles going on at the same time, besides the action that is occuring. I also enjoy the Ozzie character with all his quirky-ness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Since I am still working on the second book - I can't give that detail yet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There have been several moments that kept my mind racing even when I put the earbuds down. It makes you want to go back and listen more just to see what happens next.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. I have noticed its taking me time to get through both books, so the audible points keep adding up! I will be listening to more Peter Hamilton - he's a good storyteller.

    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about Redshirts?

    This story makes me want to go back at rewatch all the past Star Trek episodes. The wit is hilarious and the plot totally crazy. The whole premise of the book will keep you in stitches as the story develops. Also, it highlights just how bad televised entertainment truely is.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Doll was my favorite although I enjoyed Duvall's character just as much. Both their wit and comebacks to the different situations that they encounter.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Fitz dies and his last words are "this is ridiculous." Gotta love it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    To go back to where no man has gone before..
