    Story
    (106)

    After the fall of the American Ayatollahs (as foretold in Stranger in a Strange Land) there is a Second American Revolution; for the first time in human history there is a land with Liberty and Justice for All.

    Joseph Beeler says: "Classic Heinlein"

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

    No. The audio volume seems to go up and down, making for a very frustrating listening experience, especially in an environment with some background noise, such as a car.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Heinlein's style


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric Michael Summerer’s performances?

    Not unless I can sample it first. His narration was fine, but the quality of the audio file was not.


    Could you see Revolt in 2100 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Please no.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't believe this made it out into the wild like this

    Story
    (1844)

    Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

    Cris says: "Better than Other Recent Releases"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Forgotten has way too many cliches in it. While the story is fairly entertaining, the characters are one-dimensional and predictable. I started rooting for the bad guys to take Puller out so we won't have to read another of his adventures.


    Has The Forgotten turned you off from other books in this genre?

    My favorite character in this genre is Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch, and while he has gone through some awful episodes, he has recently picked up the pace again. I hope David Baldacci can do the same.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Their performance is perfectly acceptable, but not outstanding.


    Do you think The Forgotten needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not if it isn't vastly improved over this episode.
