    The year is 2312. Scientific and technological advances have opened gateways to an extraordinary future. Earth is no longer humanity's only home; new habitats have been created throughout the solar system on moons, planets, and in between. But in this year, 2312, a sequence of events will force humanity to confront its past, its present, and its future. The first event takes place on Mercury, on the city of Terminator, itself a miracle of engineering on an unprecedented scale. It is an unexpected death, but one that might have been foreseen....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book is just too long with too many "side stories and scientific guesses"


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kim Stanley Robinson? Why or why not?

    Unless confined to solitary confinement in prison - unlikely


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was very montotone on EVERYTHING...Some realy spicy sections and yet monotone


    Could you see 2312 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Never be a movie

    The medicus Ruso and his wife, Tilla, are back in the borderlands of Britannia, this time helping to tend the builders of Hadrian's Great Wall. Having been forced to move off their land, the Britons are distinctly on edge. Then Ruso's recently arrived clerk, Candidus, goes missing. A native boy thinks he sees a body being hidden inside the wall's half-finished stonework, and a worrying rumor begins to spread. When soldiers ransack the nearby farms looking for Candidus, Tilla's tentative friendship with a local family turns to anger and disappointment.

    When Chuck Tatum began Marine boot camp, he was just a smart-aleck teenager eager to serve his country. Little did he know that he would be training under a living legend of the Corps - Medal of Honor recipient John Basilone, who had almost single-handedly fought off a Japanese force of three thousand on Guadalcanal.

    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    T.D. says: "Shakes you to your very core."

    Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    James says: "Even Better than the Movie"

    All the Captains of the Caine


    What about Kevin Pariseau’s performance did you like?

    Clear and imitation of all characters was perfect


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

    Dubliners is a collection of short stories by James Joyce that was first published in 1914. The 15 stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle-class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written at a time when Irish nationalism was at its peak and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences.

    Nora says: "Brilliant stories about Dubliners"

    The writting style - very elequent


    What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

    If you could take any character from Dubliners out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The priest in the first story. Ask him, what drove him crazy ?

  • The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt

    In The First Tycoon, Stiles offers the first complete, authoritative biography of this titan, and the first comprehensive account of the Commodore's personal life. It is a sweeping, fast-moving epic, and a complex portrait of the great man. Vanderbilt, Stiles shows, embraced the philosophy of the Jacksonian Democrats and withstood attacks by his conservative enemies for being too competitive. He was a visionary who pioneered business models.

    Would you try another book from T. J. Stiles and/or Mark Deakins?

    Interesting reading in the beggining, but filled with detials, details and more details with no story line except details on C.V.


    Would you ever listen to anything by T. J. Stiles again?

    Unlikely


    What didn’t you like about Mark Deakins’s performance?

    Voice rose and fell with excitment


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Would make a good historical reference


    Any additional comments?

    I used two credits that I can never get back.
