    Fun story and well written. Grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me going the whole way through. Can't wait to listen to the next 4 books in the series.

    What if the Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world? A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth's surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil's Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost leaving behind Angkor Wat....

    Story
    Where does Atlantis: Devil's Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is pretty good. Though I think that things are changing how they work from book 1 until now. But still not too bad.

    The one complaint I will make is that the audio editing was done fairly poorly. There are several times where the reader goes back and re-read words or phrases in, what seems to be, an attempt to improve the reading. But then the editor did not remove the first reading. So you hear the same things twice several times throughout the book. This needs to be resolved.

    Persecuted refugees from six separate alien races have migrated to the idyllic planet Jijo. And despite their incredible diversity, the inhabitants live together in blissful harmony. However, settlement on Jijo is illegal - and it's only a matter of time before the residents of this forbidden paradise are discovered by the galactic powers-that-be.

    **** SPOILERS ****

    OK. Maybe I just don't get "adult" sci-fi. But this book kinds just drug on with no read direction. There were so many mini stories in the book that I had a hard time keeping up with all of them.

    There is so lottle to go off of for the first few chapters that I had no clue that we were talking about so many different races and trying to keep up with which race was which was a pain.

    Then to get to the end and find out that we were not going to get ANY resolution was a massive letdown. No resolution on anything. What is going on under water? Who is this mystery man and what's up with his head? Who are the visitors and then the newer visitors?

    The story got more interesting about half way through the book, but I doubt the series is worth getting the next two just to find some form of closure.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    This book is filled with good example of what we can each do to take control of the changes we need to make. Well worth the read and something that should probably be read several times.

    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    Story
    If you could sum up Earth Unaware in three words, what would they be?

    A good book to preface Ender's Game and provide a little insight to the entry of the Formics into our solar system.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Earth Unaware?

    The attack on the main Formic ship. Shadows of a hive mind as one Formic sees a previous enemy.


    Any additional comments?

    Like several of Card's books I think the ending was lacking. I have heard that this is supposed to be book 1 of a trilogy, but the ending left way to may loose ends. So I hope book 2 comes out soon to help tie up those ends.

    Children of the Mind also had too many loose ends. At least we know that Shadows Alive should tie most of those up.

    The story was good. It helps set up several key elements for the entire series and was tough to put down.

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

    I loved this idea of how Peter Pan cam into existence. Yes, it is a youth book, but very well put together and well worth the listen. Jim Dale, who also reads the Harry Potter books, does an excellent job as usual.
