    This dazzling memoir promises to be a courageously frank, honest and poignant read. It will detail some of Fry's most turbulent and least-well-known years, with writing that will excite you, make you laugh uproariously, move you, inform you, and, above all, surprise you.

    Story

    This is great. It's like Stephen has sat you down, as a good friend, to tell you some amusing (and heartwarming) anecdotes about how he accidentally became famous. Brilliant. The narration is utterly superb. What a voice!! I could listen to him recite the phone book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    You could sum up this story as..."Harry Potter goes to Hogwarts in space and learns lots of cool stuff so he can save humanity from the evil one". It's a great story, with good pace and fantastic voices. Lots of fun to listen to.

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 12 mins)

    Story
    (1749)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Peter says: "Heinlein's Masterpiece"
    "One of the best ever Sci-Fi classics"

    Story

    This book introduced me to sci-fi many (many) years ago. Hearing it in audible format was great - it added a whole new life to the novel. The voices only take a few moments to get used to, then you realise how much sense it makes to have the accents. It's a great story that has intellectual depth as well as interesting characters that you can care about. Do yourself a favour and listen to one of the best sci-fi books from the classic era (before the sci-fi genre got all weird, bloated and hard to read).
