    In this deeply original book, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy sets out in search of the telescopes and detectors that promise to answer the biggest questions in modern cosmology. Why is the universe expanding at an ever faster rate? What is the nature of the "dark matter" that makes up almost a quarter of the universe? Why does the universe appear fine-tuned for life? Are there others besides our own?

    Would you try another book from Anil Ananthaswamy and/or L. J. Ganser?

    Yes, it stretches me! I've really enjoyed what I've been able to understand. LOVED it when the announcement about the Higgs Boson was made regarding dark matter, and at least I had an inkling what they were talking about!!


    Would you recommend The Edge of Physics to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, I have already. I have shared it with my 11 year old son, just to stretch his thinking as well. It's ok to listen and not understand every word and concept!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by L. J. Ganser?

    Yes, I like the narrator!


    Do you think The Edge of Physics needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Who knows! Don't ask me, like I said, I'm struggling with what I'm learning now (and I'm pretty smart!),

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    Story

    Diana Gabaldon is an artist with words, painting a picture that has the characters coming to life. Davina Porter is a performer, bringing Gabaldon's words to life. I've read the series, but I could not appreciate the beauty of the French and Scottish words without being able to hear them, and Davina Porter brings them to life!

    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    Purchased this book as a $4.95 deal. It's a genre I wouldn't have normally read, but as a new Audible customer, I have enjoyed exploring something new. The narrators are a man and woman, which makes the story telling more interesting, and even humorous. I've been nicely surprised with this book!

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Wild to be better than the print version?

    The narrator is great, she reads like she is telling the story first hand. Listening had a special effect, I didn't have to concentrate on the words, I just let the story flow over me. It's hard to describe, but it would not have been the same had I read it myself. Some stories are just like that.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild?

    It was so real. Sometimes a scene would unfold in the smallest detail, like what to pack in Monster, and it was like zooming you in to the story. You were there. And as the story continued, you could feel the weight lifting as she emptied some of the contents of that monstrous bag. Loved it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Because of the personal nature of the book, it would be hard to listen to the whole thing in one sitting. I needed time in between to digest. To settle myself, to think about what I'd heard.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful writer, and narrator.
