    Story

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    Billy says: "Narration was distracting"

    Overall

    This is a total waste of money and bandwidth. This audio book was SO poorly read that it was nearly impossible to finish. It sounded like a high school freshman school project. The characterizations were embarrassingly silly. If I were the author, I would have this recording destroyed immediately. Wow.

    Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.

    Cathy says: "Full of surprises, delightfully unexpected"
    "mmmMMMgh. I loved it."

    Story

    I think I may have gone to high school with the Minotaur. The voicing of the grunt was priceless and you really get to know this unfortunate character. He reminded me of a Slingblade with horns. Plus, if you've ever worked at a restaurant - particularly in a kitchen, you'll recognize a few of these situations and like me, find a bit of nostalgia in being burned by fryer grease.
