The rule about trilogies is usually that the first one is decent, the second is a bit weaker and the third fulfills everything the series is about. It applies here. It gathers the best elements of the first two books, acknowledges the events they have gone through, and pulls all the stops.
All the characters in this book were introduced previously in some capacity, whether present or mentioned. The combination of action and humor reaches a new, refined height as Peter Clines flexes his creative muscles.
What would you do if an alien ship picks you up and give you control to fight an army of giant space robots? This story explains what most of us would do in these circumstances. The sequel is definitely on my list. I want to know what happens next.
This is the best collection of stories I've come across for a while. It's full of memorable short stories and one less than memorable, unnecessarily long one.
After the first two installments of this trilogy, this one delivers. You get all the action and tension you could hope for, and then some. My only complaint is that the final few chapters feel rushed, and the conclusion could have been better by mentioning things such as Battle School and what they plan to do next.
Here's an interesting study about a bunch of people who would pay big money to gain smaller and smaller split-second advantages over other traders, building systems and becoming obsessed on that micro-second "flash" advantage.
This course covers a variety of topics and compares them across religions, including creation, where we're going, rituals (in time and space), important people, places and objects, the nature of God, the afterlife and everything in between.
It explores debt as a universal truth, covering its financial form as well as trying to interpret religions on a debt-based system.
It made me really think about the world in a different way.
This course should have been called "The Most Influential Characters in Western History" because I don't see any of the influential characters in Middle Eastern, Asian or African civilisations. And there's plenty to choose from. All characters and stories discussed take place in America, Europe or a fantasy equivalent of them.
Such a lost opportunity to really explore the world.
I have a personal discomfort of the idea of going to a hospital and seeing a doctor. Yes, I know I need to if things get bad, but I never thought of things from their perspective.
This course helps relieve some of that unease. It doesn't get rid of it, but it is a step toward understanding.
This series of lectures explores some of the biggest controversies of early Christianity, ranging from the serious questions (do we still have the original New Testament?) to the borderline crazy (did Jesus have a twin brother?)
If you take it with a grain of salt, it's an interesting journey through some of the most hotly debated issues of the faith.
I stopped listening halfway through. I think this didn't age too well. I usually love good sci-fi novels but this one just didn't click even though I listened for as long as I was going to.
