History as a great story. It is amazing how if Hollywood hasn't made a movie about it, it doesn't exist. Worked at a place where one of these amazing machines pumped out ammonia nitrate day and night and had no idea how the haber-Bosch invention had changed/impacted the world I live in.
I love reluctant hero's and its rare to find a female one at that. The first book was made up of short stories and read as a bunch of short stories. This second book however has the feel of a novel and after finishing it I am looking forward to another one.
This book is easy to get into and well thought out. A total joy.
This is the genisis of all those stories like The Thing, Alien vs Preditor. There is nothing like discovering where all the great sc-fi horror has come from. This is the seed of so much of what I have read in the last 20 years. In the begining there was Lovecraft.
Brilliant story. Smart, entertaining. Narrator didnt get in the way of the story. Checking the reviews helped me make the decision to buy this. Always worth checking the reviews.
Wil Wheaton reading a story about self aware trek type personel who have realised that if you go on an away mission and arent one of the chosen few you will die and horribly. And probably pointlessly. If you like trek next gen and are aware of the red shirt mythos you cant help but be curious. For me John Scalzi delivers the goods with the story Wil wipes the floor with his delivery.
Finishing with multiple perspectives was a bit of a jolt but made it feel complete by the end.
A drunken Kransky discussing his numerous near death events.
Totally wanted to listen from beginning to end. Damn my life interupting!
Will be listening again today.
