    Pioneering director J. J. Abrams has delivered an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek into darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended the book. Alice Eve's ability to easily manage numerous accents displays talent and versatility.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek: Into Darkness?

    I don't want to spoil it for any listener who might not have seen the movie, but the exchange between Kirk and Spock at the Warp Core.


    What about Alice Eve’s performance did you like?

    Please refer to earlier comment.


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

    Come on, the Movie has already been made.

    Freshly laid-off Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougall are going to sunny Florida for a modest romantic vacation. But the motel they picked isn't quite a pastel paradise, and they have to be midwesterners and make the best of a bad situation. Except bad goes to worse, and a string of misfortunes renders them unable to leave the state. Meanwhile, the next Mexican-American War is being fought, this time in Fort Lauderdale, between the Kentucky mafia and the Oxy cartel over control of the lucrative pain clinic market.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Riptide Ultra-Glide the most enjoyable?

    Dorsey once again delivers a frightfully realistic tale of the the twisted Fun House that is the State of Florida. A place where only the iced-coffee and water propelled Serge A. Storms inflicts his own delightful vengeance on modern day Carpet Baggers and con men.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Serge...of course.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    This is the first audio book that I've listened to from Dorsey. I've read all of his previous books. I didn't like that Serge had this higher-pitched, somewhat spastic sounding voice. With that said, it did assist in always letting the reader know exactly when Serge was speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very enjoyable listen, References to places and issues in the State were always dead-on! If you're a Dorsey fan, I strongly recommend it.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you're able to get past the fact that Serge sounds like Alvin from the Chipmunks, the story is excellent.
