    The Tesla Legacy, set in Newcastle, Muswellbrook, Scone and the mysterious Burning Mountain in New South Wales, is an action-packed, pace-driven thriller woven with intrigue and a delightful touch of humour and romance, and an ending guaranteed to send chills down your spine.

    Would you try another book from Robert G. Barrett and/or Dino Marnika?

    To distorted and a Aussie narrator made it difficult to listen to. Audio poor. Not what I even expected.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Depends more marketing social media books but I will listen to the sample very carefully.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dino Marnika?

    Definitely not Dina


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed


    Any additional comments?

    I went by the title. Can't judge by the cover alone

    When prospector Bob Broadhead went out to Gateway on the Heechee spacecraft, he decided he would know which was the right mission to make him his fortune. Three missions later, now famous and permanently rich, Robinette Broadhead has to face what happened to him and what he is...in a journey into himself as perilous and even more horrifying than the nightmare trip through the interstellar void that he drove himself to take!

    Eons before the birth of the Roman Empire, there was a civilization dedicated to the sciences of Earth, sea, and sky. In the City of Light lived people who made dark plans to lay waste to their uncivilized neighbors using the very power of the planet itself. As the great science of their time was brought to bear on the invading hordes, hell was set loose on Earth. And the civilization of Atlantis disappeared in a suicidal storm of fire and water.… Now history threatens to repeat itself.

    The United States is ready to make a triumphant return to the moon, striking out boldly into the solar system in an attempt to regain the confidence of the heady days of the Apollo program. But a shocking discovery at Shackleton Crater brings the first Prometheus mission to an abrupt halt. Remote robots have uncovered human skeletal remains - and forensic analysis at NASA reveals the corpse to be over 700 million years old.

    Would you try another book from David L. Golemon and/or Richard Poe?

    No ... this started on track but after a 1/3 of the book it lost it.


    What was most disappointing about David L. Golemon’s story?

    Lost track of the story line . Too much irrelevant dialogue


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Narration was ok. Unfortunately couldn't get past the long boring irrelevant dialogue


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. It was one of my favorite topics. Earth Origins


    Any additional comments?

    I am barely half way through the book and have no desire to continue listening.
