    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    What did you love best about Pathfinder?

    I've always been a fan of Scott's work. I couldn't stop with the Ender series, and now the Pathfinder series, to bad there are only 2 books in the series available right now. I'm sure i will listen to the rest of this series.

    Councilman Golan Trevize is wondering if he was right to choose a collective mind as the best possible future for humanity over the anarchy of contentious individuals, nations and planets. To test his conclusion, he decides he must know the past and goes in search of legendary Earth, all references to which have been erased from galactic libraries. The societies encountered along the way become arguing points in a book-long colloquy about man's fate, conducted by Trevize and traveling companion Bliss, who is part of the first world/mind, Gaia.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not unless it is redone someday by someone else


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Terrible voice. Sounded like he was from the 40s. Zero inflection, didn't change his voice at all to differentiate characters.


    Could you see Foundation and Earth being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes. I couldn't cast a movie, I leave that up to much more competent people.

    Australia is one of the last places where life still exists after nuclear war starts in the Northern Hemisphere. A year on, an invisible cloak of radiation has spread almost completely around the world. Darwin is a ghost town, and radiation levels at Ayres Rock are increasing. An American nuclear-powered submarine has found its way to Australia where its captain has placed the boat under the command of the Australian Navy.

    From the creation of life to the exploration of the heavens and the stars, from the origins of the earth to the possibility of life on other planets, Ben Bova unveils the beauty and science behind this phenomenon. Bova masterfully explains how light affects us every day of our lives, from our religions to our sex drives. He examines how we use light in art, science, industry, entertainment, cosmetics, jewelry, and in a myriad other ways.

    Amazon Customer says: "Well done!"
    "Amazing! Stunning!"
    Overall

    This is one of the best I've heard for having such a conversational writing style. I was sad when it was over and wished he had delved deeper into some of the topics. Being a photographer, I am totally intrigued with the whole subject of light. This story was informative and sent my imaginationon a trip thru the solar system.
