    Story
    (126)

    In Newcastle-upon-Tyne, AD 2142, Detective Sidney Hurst attends a brutal murder scene. The victim is one of the wealthy North family clones - but none have been reported missing. And the crime’s most disturbing aspect is how the victim was killed. Twenty years ago, a North clone billionaire and his household were horrifically murdered in exactly the same manner, on the tropical planet of St Libra. But if the murderer is still at large, was Angela Tramelo wrongly convicted? Tough and confident, she never waivered under interrogation - claiming she alone survived an alien attack. But there is no animal life on St Libra.

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

    Mr Hamilton has written a lot of good books. But this is by far his best. I like how he mixes scifi and reality in order to create a future you can believe in. I also like how this detective story in a not so distant future keeps you intrigued to the very end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angela is a cold hearted female who would do anything to get what she wants. But the better you get to know her, the more you start to like her and feel sorry for her.


    Have you listened to any of Toby Longworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't, but I am looking forward to listen to his other works. I love how he does all these accents. One minute he sounds like an East Indian and the next you think you are hearing some English bloke with a Newcastle accent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me feel sorry for the heroine.


    Any additional comments?

    You might want to listen to this book. It is long, I know, but I think this will be one of the best scifi books of 2013.

    Story
    (4963)

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "I can't believe it is over."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Memory of Light again? Why?

    I picked up the eye of the world back in 1991 because it was thick and I liked the cover. Through all the years I would take a week off just to read the novel when they came out. I probably reread the series a dozen times now. I love the fact that it is so easy to relate to Rand, Perrin and Mat. I loved to read about them struggling with everyday problems.
    And yes I would listen to AMOL again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Mat became a great captain in his own right.


    What does Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The drama and they made me sit back and enjoy the story, instead of rushing through the novel like I did the first time around with all the books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Egwene discoverd the answer to Balefire, and what it means to be the flame of Tar Valon.
