  • Escape Route

    Story

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    Overall

    Peter Hamilton, in my opinion, is one of the most talented sci-fi writers out there right now. And if you enjoy intelligent, hard core sci-fi epics, Hamilton is the author for you.

    Having said that, why would you want to waste a credit or cash on a almost 3 hour story? My answer would be to decide if you would enjoy his books. Rather than waste a credit or cash on a more expensive book, try this short story.

    The story is a good one and will give you a solid idea of what to expect from him. Listen past 1 hour and 35 secs because that is when the story picks up and you will see the type of twists and mind blowing possibilities that Hamilton can deliver.

    Two apparently unrelated anomalies have disrupted operations at a mining colony on Mercury. A troubleshooting mission sent to investigate encounters peculiar events and even stranger findings.

    Overall

    Stephen Baxter, in my opinion, is the most gifted and most entertaining science fiction writer out there. He takes your mind to locations, times, and possibilities that you would have never imagine. And more importantly, he makes it fun to be there.

    Cilia of Gold is a book that the talent involved had fun making as well. The production and narration were entertaining and appropriate. Where else can you learn that it snows in Mercury and want to know more...

    Audible, if you are reading, please add more talent like Baxter to your science fiction selections (and Peter Hamilton, Gregory Benford, David Brin...)

    Parenting is not about kids, it's about parents. If you're not in control, then you cannot be in charge. What every kid really needs are parents who are able to keep their cool no matter what. Easier said than done? Not anymore, thanks to ScreamFree Parenting, the principle-based approach that's inspiring parents everywhere to truly revolutionize their family dynamics.

    Overall

    Can this book truly and dramatically help your relationship with your children, spouse, parents, etc...In my opinion, yes.

    My parenting challenge is not difficult or extreme. I never really thought that I had to improve my parenting style or approach a great deal. But I did have a progressively difficult time with my 8 year old in the last 6 month. So I got this book with a credit. And I have noticed a difference within a week with my child....and my spouse, and myself.

    If you think you could use parenting relationship advice, listen to this book. If you don't think you need to read this book, then you definitely need to...

    It is applicable to any parent with children of any age. Make sure you read past the first two chapters. From there, you will be hooked.

    On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Neil Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain on their roof. It has haunted their sleep, invaded their dreams, and now they rise to find a luminous silvery downpour drenching their small California mountain town. A strange scent hangs faintly in the air, and the young couple cannot shake the sense of something wrong.

    Don't get this thinking that it will be your typical Koontz book. It's not. It is almost like someone else wrote it. Having said that, someone new to Koontz may like it.
