    In 1948, an alien starship crash-landed in the New Mexico desert and brought with it the key to mankind’s future. Code-named the Rho Project, the landing was shrouded in secrecy, and only the highest-ranking US government and military personnel knew it existed. Until now....

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

    Yes and no. I like the story but clearly the author knows nothing about teenagers and family life around teenagers...these children are just too polite and too perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The underlying these is complicated and holds a lot of scientific imagination without being overly descriptive.


    Did The Second Ship inspire you to do anything?

    It was good enough to buy the second book Immune, which I think is better with more action and imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    The first book made my teeth grit with all the herbal tea, getting up early to watch the sun rise and gluey politeness of the main character Heather. I also find it a little unbelievable that such intelligent science whiz kids would consider religion.So good story on the one hand, unbelievable characters on the other.

    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    Would you listen to Beyond Belief again? Why?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Belief?

    The picture of children, in California carrying rail road sidings and breaking rocks and adults watching on, telling them to run not walk--- an upsidown world.


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

    Sadness, shock, anger-- why has it taken so long for someone to do something about this? Jenna you are a heroine.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the Government agencies in the USA have to read this as compusary text. A real problem , happening today that they can solve. Shut them down now before they have another Jonestown on their hands. Also-- this would make a great movie.

    Neanderthals have developed a radically different civilization on a parallel Earth. A Neanderthal physicist, Ponter Boddit, accidentally passes from his universe into a Canadian underground research facility. Fortunately, a team of human scientists, including expert paleo-anthropologist Mary Vaughan, promptly identifies and warmly receives Ponter. Solving the language problem and much else is a mini-computer, called a Companion, implanted in the brain of every Neanderthal. But it can't help his fellow scientist back in his world, Adikor Huld, when the authorities charge Adikor with his murder.

    This is a thought provoking trilogy with original refreshing characters intermingled with believable scientific imagination stirred with the right amount of human behavior and a little romance. A challenging story line that really works. When is the movie coming out?

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "Intriguing, plausible or scare mongering ?"

    Would you listen to One Second After again? Why?

    Perhaps but I think the main thing is that it makes you want to go and read up,on EMP.


    Any additional comments?

    This book simplistic as it is, is thought provoking. It doesn't say too much about humanity and how we could quickly just degrade into a feudal system in a few weeks. What is this promoting? I wonder...is it typical American fear , republican style and 'there be Dragons' anti everyone else American. Or illuminating something real. So plausible scenario or scare mongering?

    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "Thoroughly Enjoyed!"

    I had not revisited Dune since college. This was wonderfully put together and narrated like a play. Just ordered number 2!

    Said to cure almost any illness, the new street drug Glow has attained almost mythical status in America. The key ingredient in Glow is the Living Blood, which courses through the veins of 17-year-old Washington state resident Fana Wolde. Distrustful of her parents and eager to share her healing powers via an elaborate underground network, Fana sets out on her own. But what she doesn't know is she's being hunted by a mysterious and homicidal group with ties to the Vatican.

    It was like listening to a play. This narrator is a real story teller. The book is just up my street; mystery, magic, paranormal mixed in to the present day.
