I read mostly science fiction. My guilty pleasure is Star Trek although I do not listen to much since it is abridged.

    The fate of the Foundation rests on young Arcadia Darell, only 14 years old and burdened with a terrible secret. As its scientists gird for a final showdown with the Mule, the survivors of the First Foundation begin their desperate search. They too want the Second Foundation destroyed, before it destroys them.

    I for one have always like the Foundation Trilogy. I consider it simple and easy reading that does not require you to get a score card or journal in order to follow everything. For its' day it was a very cool idea.

  • Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ

    Story

    Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration - that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession. But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere.

    The basic premise of the book, that the word slave is somewhat mistranslated as servant is nothing new. But it does present a good background and explanation of what slave and slavery meant back in the day the bible was written.

    The book also is used as a platform for MacArthur to make the case for Calvinism and it does present the case for the concept of Calvin’s TULIP very well and is backed up with appropriate bible verses etc. The argument for/against Calvinism is old and interesting and certainly one that Christians can have without coming to blows. I can appreciate this books presentation on the idea.

    If you could sum up Mockingjay in three words, what would they be?

    a fullfilling end


    What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

    Not sure what I would compare it too.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    Katniss - I feel she had that character down very consistently.

    Mosaic is the incredible life story of Captain Kathryn Janeway, commander of the Starship Voyager! Read by Kate Mulgrew and enhanced with sound effects and an original score.

    Ben says: "Relaxing and enjoyable"
    "Good story but..."
    Overall

    I gave this only three stars not because of the story but because of the abridgment. Story is great and you learn much about Janeway. I just really dislike abridgments, I wish all the Star Trek book were not like this.
