  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    "Really stupid people, very unbelievable"
    Overall

    If you're going to read, wait for the abridged version. This was really, really, really long!

    I almost didn't finish the book; actually stopped listening for several days.

    Several of the key people in this book were really very stupid. It was hard to read many parts because of that. This book had a lot going for it, actually very intriguing about unknown entities and what they could do to us, as humans. I really liked that part. However, it could have been portrayed much better. I was pretty frustrated after reading the book, and should have listened to the other reviews and not wasted my time.

    For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match. Cassie, at 33, wants a husband and kids, and so far, nothing's worked. Not blind dates, not the Internet and certainly not leaving love to chance. What's left? A professional matchmaker. He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client.

    Susan says: "will have to get this one"
    "If you like sappy main characters, read the book"
    Overall

    Let me say up-front, that I really don't care for stories where the heroine can't be happy unless she's married with kids. The first chapter sets the stage where she's desperate enough to spend $30k to hire a matchmaker. I can foresee where there could be a lot of humor with this book. However, I'll gladly pass.

  • The Nature of Technology: First Chapter

    In this groundbreaking work, pioneering technology thinker and economist W. Brian Arthur sets forth a boldly original way of thinking about technology. The Nature of Technology is an elegant and powerful theory of technology's origins and evolution. It achieves for the progress of technology what Thomas Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions did for scientific progress.

    While the idea is very interesting, the details of just the first chapter were eye-crossing. The author kept going on and on about his argument and why he was writing the book. If an abridged version comes out, I might listen.

    Twelve-year-old Eon has been training for years. His intensive study of Dragon Magic, based on Oriental astrology, involves two kinds of skills: sword-work and magical aptitude. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye - an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons of good fortune.

    But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a 16-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a 12-year-old boy for the chance to become a Dragoneye.

    Levi says: "Fun, intriguing and addicting!"
    "Wait for the abridged version."
    Overall

    And save yourself a lot of frustration. The book overall has a lot of potential. However, it's so long I skipped chapters (and it was still too long) and the plot was so obvious you wanted to slap the characters! Also, do NOT let children listen; older teens would be ok. Doubt if I read the sequel as I already know how things will end up.

    Audible is pleased to present the first chapter of Michael Crichton's State of Fear. Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    Dennison says: "Read after MC's death"

    Listened to the first chapter and have no desire to read the rest of the book. Boring!

    Patsy MacLemoore, a history professor in her late 20s, has a brand-new Ph.D. from Berkeley and a wild streak. She wakes up in jail after an epic alcoholic blackout. "Okay, what'd I do?" she asks her lawyer and jailers. In fact, two Jehovah's Witnesses, a mother and daughter, are dead, run over in Patsy's driveway, and Patsy will spend the rest of her life trying to atone. She goes to prison, gets sober, and upon her release finds a new community (and a husband) in AA.

    "Intriguing but nothing like the write-up"
    Overall

    I listened to the first chapter and was definitely "caught". However, when I went to purchase the book, the write-up appears to be a completely different book. What happened? They both started in 1980, but the listen talked about a 12 year old girl dealing with her Mother's impending death and an ensuing mystery.

    Ask Kennedi Mason and she'll say she and her husband, Blake, have a good marriage. That's why she can't wait to tell Blake the fabulous news - that something he's always wanted has finally happened. But when Blake arrives home that evening, he has an announcement of his own, one that shocks Kennedi into silence.

    Starlet says: "1st Chapter Review"
    "Too much information"
    Overall

    Within the first chapter, you learn all about her very healthy lifestyle (no caffein, limited sodas, etc), which is directly related to her Mother's recent death (died of breast cancer, potentially related to sodas, etc.). Wwaaaaaayyy too much detail! About half way through the chapter, I put my iPod playback on fast, but it wasn't fast enough.

    Our Iceberg is Melting is a simple fable about doing well in an ever-changing world. Based on the award-winning Eight Steps work of Harvard's John Kotter, it is a story that has been used to help thousands of people and organizations.

    Although I liked Who Moved My Cheese better. Worth reading as a refresher to keep yourself open to new ideas and to keep your skills flexible.
