    In Saturn's Children, Freya is an obsolete android concubine in a society where humans haven't existed for hundreds of years. A rigid caste system keeps the Aristos, a vindictive group of humanoids, well in control of the lower, slave-chipped classes. So when Freya offends one particularly nasty Aristo, she's forced to take a dangerous courier job off-planet.

    G. House Sr. says: "Pleasent, Complicated Space Opera - Very Enjoyable"
    "What a voice"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Saturn's Children the most enjoyable?

    OK, this is a good to excellent novel but that's not really the point. Bianca Amato's performance is stellar (intentional joke). In a story about a robot geisha left without any humans to love, she gives everyone a separate and delicious English accent.

    She's FABULOUS

    I mean, the book is great and all but her read is incredible.

    Story

    The title character from ABC's hit television series Castle kicks off his new series of books featuring tough and sexy New York police detective Nikki Heat with a bang.

    Patti says: "Good book terrible narrator"
    "How could a soulless rip-off be this well done?"

    Where does Heat Wave rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not the best but it's certainly in the top ten


    What did you like best about this story?

    Since this is just a spin-off of the Castle TV show, I expected the worst: hack writing, rehashing of old plots, obvious signs of a 5 minute writing process. Instead, it was solidly written and, most interestingly, written from the viewpoint of Kate Beckett. Now you have the TV show - which is all about the male character - and the books, which are all about the woman. It's like a sexual Rashomon.
