    Best-selling science fiction superstars Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle combine their talents with those of Steven Barnes in an extraordinary adventure of humankind’s first outpost in the farthest reaches of space. Light years from Earth, colonists land on a planet they name Avalon. It seems like a paradise - until native creatures savagely attack. It will take every bit of intelligence, courage, and military-style discipline to survive.

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

    I would recommend this book. While under 30 years old, you can still tell the difference in societal norms. Cigarette smoking being glamorous, women in mostly subservient roles to men. But still a very good story. Because of the deepness of the narrator's voice it was sometimes hard to understand, but overall a very enjoyable listening experience.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the narrator did a very good job.

    In 1948, an alien starship crash-landed in the New Mexico desert and brought with it the key to mankind’s future. Code-named the Rho Project, the landing was shrouded in secrecy, and only the highest-ranking US government and military personnel knew it existed. Until now....

    Where does The Second Ship rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a very interesting book with a fairly new premise. While the villians are two dimensional, it is a very fun book and an easy listen.

  • Solaris: The Definitive Edition

    At last, one of the world’s greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it. To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem’s provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A Plot. It totally lacked one. It just seemed to ramble going here, going there, but never really getting anywhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stanislaw Lem and Bill Johnston (translator) again?

    Probably not. I have read several Stanislaw Lem books and after each one I ask myself: 'Why did I read this author again"?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, to be fair, the narrator was OK. It was just the material he had to work with.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Nothing. A couple of good twists but nothing really memorable.

    Guy Carson is a brilliant scientist at GeneDyne, one of the world's foremost biochemical companies. When he is transferred to Mount Dragon, GeneDyne's high-security genetic engineering lab, his good fortune seems too good to be true.

    Carson soon finds that it is. He learns that GeneDyne geneticists are tinkering with a common virus with an eye on the enormous profit to be had from a cure for the flu. Their cure involves permanently altering DNA in humans. What's more, Mount Dragon harbors another secret that puts the world at horrifying risk.

    Kathy says: "Great grab-you-in-plot!"
    "Predictable"
    Overall

    Ithought a book by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child should be pretty good and the premise seemed topnotch. While the premise remained top notch, the writing was abysmal. Actually, the author of the blurb about the book was much better than the book. Within mere pages it became way to obvious what was going to happen and how. There was one nice twist at the end of the book, but overall just predictably boring.

    One night when he was 10, Tyler stood in his backyard and watched the stars go out. They flared into brilliance, then disappeared, replaced by an empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives.

    Robert says: "A Classic"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    While this book had a great premise, the author took forever to go nowhere. Poor character development, you really didn't care about the characters. Over all I consider it a waste of time.
