  • Walk the Plank: The Human Division, Episode 2

    • UNABRIDGED (39 mins)

    Story
    (584)

    Wildcat colonies are illegal, unauthorized, and secret - so when an injured stranger shows up at the wildcat colony New Seattle, the colony leaders are understandably suspicious of who he is and what he represents. His story of how he’s come to their colony is shocking, surprising, and might have bigger consequences than anyone could have expected. Walk the Plank is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories.

    Any additional comments?

    The series is nice as a serial release, but , really, couldn't the titles be synced up to download properly on an ipod (I'm sure other devices will choke on chapter titles embedded in the album title) . I had to spend 30min experimenting how to edit titles/albums to get a sequential download (into my device). In a few short weeks, they are all going to be available and MOST people will want all copies, and be able to listen back-to-back.
    My solution, in case others need it:
    1 edit all titles to have episode numeral as 1st character
    2. edit all album titles to "The Human Division"

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 12 mins)

    Story
    (1861)

    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.

    Gerald says: "Very Good Interpretation"
    "Spans the generations of SF"
    Overall

    Combines the best of hard SF and social conciousness. Totally engaging reader, very talented

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Class struggles lucidly told"
    Overall

    The story rings so true. The voice talents were amazing, giving a luster of nuance to the encounters between characters. A shining star of hope in our world of [seemingly] endless petty and malignant intolerances.
