The Age of Spiritual Machines is on the cutting edge of science in the Artificial Intelligence research field. An exciting look into the work that is leading us into the future. Written for all to understand. What will it be like to talk with an AI being?
This first book of the Neanderthal trilogy plunges you into the action right away, presenting well defined characters.
In the first book, the second lead character's trial for murder keeps the attention.
Robert's story is science at it's best, mystery at it's most compelling, and love at it's strongest. Jonathan's narration is, as ever, highly attuned to the senses, easily creating the range of characters.
During the conversation between Ponter and Mary the exploring of their two worlds is charged with the clash of mental and social viewpoints.
The Neanderthal Parallax Trilogy is the reason I like Science Fiction. The parallel worlds story is engaging. The characters are people you wish you knew. And the science is cutting edge and full of possibilities.
Captivating. Intelligent. Satisfying.
Favorite character, Ponter Boddit. He is appealing, moral and intelligent.
I have listened to Sawyer's books. His themes are why I enjoy Science Fiction. Davis brings them to life with his wide range of voices.
The Neanderthal Parallax is good for it's attention to character development. It's full of emotions.
Sawyer's future science is fascinating. Feeds the quest for knowledge.
No. I didn't consider this an Adult book. Lacks depth. Told from a child's point of view.
I would not read Harper's books.
Sissy Spacek did a good job. Very believable.
I didn't like this book, but the story was of interest for it's look at the old South.
Despite being a classic, I don't recommend this book.
Yes. I have read others that I enjoyed. I bought and recommended "Calculating God".
create more likable characters. update the job of main character. present fossil plot in the beginning. give more attention to the world of future Mars. remove references to past ideas in earlier books. delete accents; doesn't work for future.
fossils on Mars idea.
book was not up to sawyer's best work.
This book was so incredible I read it 4 times in the last month! It's the best audiobook I've listened to ever!
At the first page, Calculating God grabs each moment with compelling drive. From the first spoken word to the last, the characters capture your attention and never gives it back.
Calculating God is the first book I've listened to by Robert J. Sawyer and Jonathan Davis! It has sent me to find Robert's other books, and to write Jonathan a letter, of thanks for his talent in making the book live.
Many of the conversations between the alien and the scientist brings them to a close relationship which moved me to care deeply for these characters. I never met an alien with a sense of humor.
As an author, myself, I admire Robert's daring with character, plot, and intelligence. This book almost convinced me it was real. I found myself arguing the science. Amazing Book.
The facination of "The End" was Hitler's third war, the war against his own people
The failed plot to kill Hitler.
This is the first time I've listened to Mr. Pratt's work.
As an animal lover, I was angered by Hitler's order to euthenize all the pets.
"The End" gives the reader a "you are there" perspective more powerful than "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich."
The story begins with the hunt for Osama Ben Lauden. Story is not up to date.
The time line.
Only read a few lines of chapter 1.
I know it was free, but not worth the trouble.
This story is simple in it's premise and complicated in it's impact on the characters. The basic experience is: What happens when the EMP effect destroys the American way of liffe? No electricity, no transportation, no grocery or department stores, no entertainment dvd,tv, movies, music cds,computers; everything we now depend upon is lost. How do we live? The story pulls it punches by using a small town. But the characters are believable. Good resolution.
One Second After is a good "end of the world" story.
good characters. readers care about them
The End of American Life.
The end of sociiety, the end of trust, the end of hope. And the human power to return to civilization.
Puppy lives forever
book 2 of "A Dog's Purpose"
The dog's personality is full of charm.
Some of the story is sad.
A must read to finish the story.
I've read all of David Rosenfelt's "mystery" with a Dog books and loved them all. Lovable character, good plot, satisfying conclusion. And a hint of humor. Good reading.
