    The images, ideas, sounds, and scents that abound in this phantasmagoric sideshow are provocative and powerful: the mournful cries of celestial travelers cast out cruelly into a vast, empty space of stars and blackness; the sight of grey dust settling over a forgotten outpost on a road that leads nowhere; the pungent odor of Jupiter on a returning father's clothing. Here living cities take their vengeance, technology awakens the most primal natural instincts, Martian invasions are foiled by the good life and the glad hand, and dreams are carried aloft in junkyard rockets.

    M. Stephenson says: "A haunting performance of a Bradbury classic"
    "Ignore the old science and you get great stories"

    Would you listen to The Illustrated Man again? Why?

    Yes. These stories are excellent tales about humans. They are interwoven and handed to the reader/listener.

  • Camouflage

    The artifact is found seven miles below the surface of the sea and beneath 40 more feet of sand. The Navy's efforts to raise a wrecked submarine uncover it - and set in motion a scientific race to retrieve it, to discover just what it is and where it came from. Denser than any substance known to man, it has broken every drill bit they've tried on it and will not budge an inch. It resists every effort to breach it - or communicate with it.

    Deborah Thompson says: "Grows on you"
    "Became more like a lifetime movie as it went on"

    What did you like best about Camouflage? What did you like least?

    Some of the ideas were interesting.


    What could Joe Haldeman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A little more discovery about what the characters could/would do from a larger perspective. It seemed to center around vacation, sex and killing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The message at the end where audible thanks you.


    Do you think Camouflage needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. It might progress into alien shape shift 50 shades of grey.

    In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman reveals that the secret solution to losing weight and preventing not just diabetes but also heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer is balanced insulin levels. Dr. Hyman describes the seven keys to achieving wellness: nutrition, hormones, inflammation, digestion, detoxification, energy metabolism, and a calm mind - and explains his revolutionary six-week healthy-living program.

    What would have made The Blood Sugar Solution better?

    If the good doctor had put as much research into all of the subjects as the basic metabolism parts this could have been a good book.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s story?

    He embraced some very non scientific crap about electricity and magnetism and ran with it as if it were valid. This puts all of the material in doubt as I can't trust that he has examined the basis of his knowledge on any subject if he did such a poor job on this one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.
