    Is it space travel that children dream of, or merely visiting other worlds? Todd had always set his heart on being an astronaut, but when he meets an alien and travels to another world, he doesn't use a spaceship; he just hangs out in his own back yard.

    Enjoyable, interesting, OSC working very well in small scale. Suitable for any age. Great for a car ride.

    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.

    Story

    I enjoyed 'The Lost Gate' much much more than this story, which was interesting, great characters, well narrated, a good way to pass the time, but just not quite enough 'there' was there for me to give it the full 4 stars.
    I would read any sequel to this book, as this book sort of gives the impression of being the 'warm up' for a long series.
    I think that having characters who can time-travel works against the dramatic pacing of any book and OSC comes as close as possible to making it work. I almost had the feeling like I was listening to the world's best, and longest shaggy dog tale.

  • The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 2 mins)

    V. S. Ramachandran is at the forefront of his field - so much so that Richard Dawkins dubbed him the "Marco Polo of neuroscience". Now, in a major new work, Ramachandran sets his sights on the mystery of human uniqueness. Taking us to the frontiers of neurology, he reveals what baffling and extreme case studies can teach us about normal brain function and how it evolved.

    Michael says: "Great if you like understanding how brains work"

    Story

    This is a very interesting book, however, it relys heavily on pictures, even devoting 2 chapters to visual esthetics and the brain. Difficult to follow without easy access to the pictures. I'm on a kindle, which I guess doesn't support pictures in audible, although I get pictures in my text books.

    I think it's sort of a rip-off to get the audio without the pictures. I've tried looking around in 'My Library' for the 'accompanying reference material' but I can't find it. I do like the content of the book and would recommend it as a text book. The narration is good.
