    Captain Alexander Outland of the Sixty-Nine (short for Space Vessel 369, of course) is the best pilot in the galaxy. He’s also a pirate, a smuggler, and loved and loathed by women in umpteen solar systems. His crew of strays and misfits includes an engineer of dubious sanity, a deposed planetary governor, an annoyingly unflappable Sexbot copilot, and a slinky weapons chief who stubbornly refuses to give the captain a tumble.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'd enjoy the story line a little more if Outland didn't always think about getting laid.


    Has Alexander Outland: Space Pirate turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I got the book because of the story line. I'm sure others are a little less Dice Clay ish.


    What aspect of Andy Caploe’s performance would you have changed?

    He sounds like Andrew Dice Clay from Ford Fairlane and the writer makes it a combination between the Rock and Roll detective and Space smugler.


    Was Alexander Outland: Space Pirate worth the listening time?

    Getting past Alexanders horny-ness and the Dice Clay swag, it's a good story. Alexander started with a crew Hot gunnery officer, and mechanic. and an old man with a secret identity. Gathering to his crew as the story grows, he gains to his crew a mind reader that cooks and became a cook, co pilot robot made by his mechanic and the ships artificial intelligence was put in her/robot, and a soldier that had royalty history.


    Any additional comments?

    I like adventure, this has adventure. I don't mind some comments on how hot the gunnery officer (Slinky), but to always toot his own horn on how much women love his sex even though they want to punish him. Alex is just a male slut just like the Rock and Roll detective. While something hot is working for him.

  • Little Dorrit

    • UNABRIDGED (35 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Charles Dickens
    • Narrated By Anton Lesser

    Story
    (98)

    William Dorrit has been a resident of the Marshalsea debtors prison for so many years that he has gained the nickname "The Father of the Marshalsea". However, his suffering is eased by his close bond with youngest daughter Amy, or "Little Dorrit". The dashing Arthur Clennam, returning to London after many years in China, enters their lives and the Dorrits' fortunes begin to rise and fall. A biting satirical work on the shortcomings of 19th century government and society.

    Michael says: "a melody of genius writer & compelling reader"
    "Little Dorrit Narrated byAnton Lesser"
    Overall

    Anton Lesser was great. But Charles Dickens sure knows how to talk around the subject and hardly ever get to the point of the subject or name of the person who is being talked about. As a listener you have to guess allot. The best part is when Amy talks. She is strait forward and understandable. All the other adults talk in circles. What 1-5 words would all be necessary, it seems 15-30 words were used. I suppose it's the way the rich talked in those days. But it's hard to follow. If someone talked to me that way, I'd get board and walk away or I'd say; get to the point and stop talking in riddles. Different conversations come and go and it's hard to follow the direction of the story. I tend to only follow the parts when they stop talking in circles.
