    The biggest collection yet of favorite sci-fi stories - 16 full hours!

    "What a let down"
    Overall

    I brought the audio book because it has my favorite writers. However it would seem these short stories were a collection of their worst.

    With the help of 14 leading physicists, scientists, and spiritual thinkers, this book guides listeners on a course from the scientific to the spiritual, and from the universal to the personal. Along the way, it asks such questions as: Are we seeing the world as it really is What is the relationship between our thoughts and our world? How can I create my day every day? What the Bleep answers this question and others through an innovative new approach to self-help and spirituality.

    I pushed through as much as I could on this book but had to stop. The writing and subject are outstanding However, Suzanne Toren reads it as if she's standing in front of a class of first graders. I'll buy the printed version.

    A selection of 22 best science-fiction stories chosen by the author himself and representative of the full range of his 30-year career. The collection covers a wide range, from the day after tomorrow to the distant future, and from our own front doorstep to the farthest corners of the galaxy. Behind the idea of each story is the human factor that gives the story its meaning.

    I am a Alissa fan. However, this is not his best work. Also the narrators voice bored me to the point of deleting the book before I was half through it.

    The Children of Men begins in England in 2021, in a world where all human males have become sterile and no child will be born again. The final generation has turned 25, and civilization is giving way to strange faiths and cruelties, mass suicides and despair. Theodore Faron, Oxford historian and cousin to the omnipotent Warden of England, a dictator of great subtlety, has resigned himself to apathy. Then he meets Julian, a bright, attractive woman, who wants Theo to join her circle of unlikely revolutionaries, a move that may shatter his shell of passivity.…

    Story

    I enjoyed the story however, personally I will avoid future audios by this Narrator. There was never any real emotion in his voice. Worse was the long silenced and sudden pause between sentences causing several times for me to reach for my phone thinking the audio app had stopped working.

    What disappointed you about Ultima Thule?

    I could no longer torture myself and had to end the story half way through. At this point the character has yet to make it out of the office building. Not only do all the characters seem boring but the narrator, Jim Roberts, reads as if a bed time story to small children.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Roberts’s performances?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.

    Like so many others, Ramón Espejo ran from the poverty and hopelessness of the Third World to the promise of a new world, joining a host of like-minded workers and dreamers aboard one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the life he found on the far-off planet of São Paulo was no better than the one he had abandoned.

    Story

    I only do reviews if the book is extraordinarily good or really bad. This book was extraordinary great. The characters were well portrayed with lots of personality. Just when you think you know what's around the next bend, your jaw drops. The ending does not leave you having but does beg for a sequel.
