    Story

    In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution for the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world. Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.

    Katelyn says: "Excellent"
    "Just like the movie but more..."
    Overall

    This unabridged version is like listening to a special extended version of the movie. It is well narated and would be an excellent listen before or after you hve watched the movie.

    In November 2002, U.S. astronauts Donald Pettit and Kenneth Bowersox, and Russian flight engineer Nikolai Budarin, left on what was to be a routine 14-week mission to maintain the International Space Station. But then, on February 1, 2003, the Columbia space shuttle exploded beneath them. With the launch program suspended indefinitely, these astronauts had suddenly lost their ride home.

    Dan says: "Very good story"
    "Spaceflight fans must listen to this"
    Overall

    Very details history of the US astronauts and go throught the whole history of the US and USSR space program... also has a really great cliff hanger ending...

  • The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook

    Story
    (214)

    The high-energy tale of how two socially awkward Ivy Leaguers, trying to increase their chances with the opposite sex, ended up creating Facebook. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost, and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another.

    Charles E. Grant says: "Infotainment, poorly written"
    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    Well read, is a little techy but not to much to go over the top but still enought for the computer geeks... Just talks about the early years of facebook but it still entertaining...

  • Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon

    The flight of Apollo 11 made Aldrin one of the most famous persons on our planet, yet few people know the rest of this true American hero's story. In Magnificent Desolation, Aldrin not only gives us a harrowing first-person account of the lunar landing that came within seconds of failure and the ultimate insider's view of life as one of the superstars of America's space program, he also opens up with remarkable candor about his more personal trials - and eventual triumphs - back on Earth.

    Overall

    Satisfingly technical to keep a geek like me happy... but with a lot of reflection of his entire life so far as well.
