Good shorts in their own right. But more importantly, it brings out themes, characters, and even songs, you'll be hearing again in later Heinlein stories. To know where you're going you have to know where you've been.
This is a great series of books. It's founding plot provides everlasting basis for friction, drama, ((hu)man against man conflict for you English majors) etc. I could do without the romance angle, but even that is done pretty well and doesn't really get in the way of the core story. I could think of a lot of authors who could have started in the same place and really screwed it up but you don't get a series with about 8 books and a spinoff series unless you have kept your stuff together.
Non-fiction is harder to listen to and keep interested than fiction. Self help is harder than the rest of non-fiction. It's a tall order and this title didn't make it. It's probably not a bad Kindle or paper book read.
Not Scalzi's best, but if your a fan, you'll enjoy it. His sense of humor is there in full force.
I listened to the Hunger Games back before it was cool! It was a great book then, and a great movie now. It's an excellent series and Carolyn McCormick brings you Catness up close and persona.
The first of the series!! Very good. not all preoccupied with romance, excellent, rich characters. the narrator brings them to life, too.
I have all the DVDs of the Sharpe series, unfortunately this one wasn't made in to a movie, so this is the next best thing.
This book and the whole series is a good investment in time and money. It doesn't fit any of the standard formulas which made it all the more enjoyable. Stefan Rudnicki brings it home for us.
I really enjoyed this story. Having been a soldier myself added to that experience. If I ever run out of audio books to read the first time, this will be one of the first ones I read again.
This is the first Koontz book I read and it was a great introduction. I don't read all of his but those that seem to have a sci-fi slant to them I do tend to give a try.
I could not get into this book. The author is to busy trying to convince you that he is a civilized man now, even though he went through hell on earth during WWII. He uses words and phrases that show his aspirations to be the next Shakespeare. He isn't.
