    The Overlords appeared suddenly over every city - intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior to humankind. Benevolent, they made few demands: unify earth, eliminate poverty, and end war. With little rebellion, humankind agreed, and a golden age began.

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    I enjoyed this book very much, loved the characters and the story. I liked the structure and series of short stories contained in Smithies' journey. Highly recommended.

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

    Asylum is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Asylum?

    The plot held surprises and I found plenty of smpathy for the characters.


    What does Ian McKellen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ian McKellan was fantastic. His voice and age were perfect for the narrator's own voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable listening experience.
