I love reading/listening to something that I can loose myself in and have a hard time finding reality.

    The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky above their heads, so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals stand between the white killer robots of Krikkit and their goal of total annihilation.

    Would you try another book from Douglas Adams and/or Martin Freeman?

    First I have to say that I LOVE the Hitchhikers Guide series! It is one of my favorites and I will continue to re-read the series. Out of the 5 book series this is the one that I did not care of very much. I found myself trying to get through it for some reason. Don't get me wrong I love the book but compared to the first two this one was not my favorite. Narration was wonderfully done by Martin Freeman who is one of my favorites! Still recommend reading it as part of the series.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Okay when I first started listening to The Martian I wasn't sure what to think about it. I could not understand how I could listen to it for 10+ hours and it hold my interest. After about an hour I started to get really interested and then all of a sudden couldn't stop listening. If you have a hard time in the beginning just hang in there it gets better. I felt the narrator did a wonderful job with the main character. I would recommend this book and just remind the person to keep listening and then all of a sudden your with the main character stuck on the planet experiencing the dangers with him! What an adventure!

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Yes, it is a very long audio book but TOTALLY worth it! This has to be in my top 10. I usually listen to my books while working (I have a job that allows me to do that) or while driving but with this one I was constantly listening to it while dong laundry, cooking dinner, relaxing at night....etc. Ken Follett draws you in from the very beginning and holds your attention for the entire book, which is a lot to say since its a lengthly book. I did not want it to end. I'm on the fence about World without End only cause I loved Pillars so much. John Lee did a wonderful job narrating and I'm happy to know that he continues to narrate Ken Follett's other books. Overall, I would recommend Pillar to anyone.

    In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platform that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate. In the same year, a simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event. At almost the same moment in humanity's broad history, mankind had discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall - and the ability to forget it ever happened.

    Would you listen to Shift Omnibus Edition again? Why?

    I read Wool last year and decided to listen to Shift about a month ago. I love reading reviews on the books before purchasing to see what others say about it. With that said I already knew that the characters in Wool were not in Shift. I still loved the book. Shift starts to give you some answers (not all answers, but some) and a little history of the Silos. I surprisingly enjoyed the story and the performance was wonderfully done.

    Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbability, and desperately in search of a place to eat.

    What made the experience of listening to The Restaurant at the End of the Universe the most enjoyable?

    This series is in my top favorite and will always pick it up if I am in need for some entertainment. The second book in particular is wonderfully written and I feel it is as good as the first. Martin Freeman narrates the second book and found him to be very good and entertaining. Although Zaphoid has this really annoying accent I was still able to enjoy the characters. Of course I would recommend this to everyone!

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to be better than the print version?

    I love this book! In fact, I make sure that this book is always downloaded on my phone just in case I don't have anything to listen to. I have listened to this book twice and I still found myself laughing out loud. Douglas Adams keeps you entertained and the performance is outstanding. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained!
