    Story
    "Poor ol' Frank"
    Where does 3001 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's really not bad. Scott Brick has become one of my more preferred, American accented narrators. The story itself is amusing to me as I'm a huge fan of 2001, 2010, 2063.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 3001?

    Poor ol' Frank gets taken down a peg or 2 - and that's saying something. He's so blown away by the technology available in this new millennium he finds himself in. I really enjoyed hearing Scott Brick read the bits of the book that referred to 2010. I'm pretty geeky about all that, so it was a pleasure to revisit it. He does a great job.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His easy-sounding, laid back manner lends itself to the realm of the 2001 series. (I just couldn't imagine what could be done with the story itself - they FIND FRANK?? lol - I was gladly mistaken. I should have more faith in one of my favorite authors whose stories have truly touched my life.)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend this novel and audible version.

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping that the audio book would take the listener on an Odyssey through the monolith to intergalactic intrigue, not a rehash of our solar system.

    Story
    "a nice ending to the series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    probably not. This is way more science fiction than my friends would like.


    What did you like best about this story?

    brain caps.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    it was a good performance. I can't think of any parts I didn't like.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when Poole was getting depressed about all the people he had left behind.

    "3000 and Wonderful"
    What did you love best about 3001?

    Still a lot to learn from the past and future. Innovative treatment of learning and medicine.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How it tied into the previous two novels, and its outlook for the future.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first.
