Rob Dunbar is the world's best history professor. And with good reason: he's been alive for 3,000 years, keeping his existence a secret since before the days of Athens. But a stranger named Baxter has a better use for Rob's vast expertise. Baxter's looking to found a mining company in the Asteroid Belt. In exchange for Rob's help, he'll try to unravel the mystery of Rob's origin. As they're getting their outfit off the ground, they come under covert attack by HemiCo, a powerful Mars-based corporation. And Rob learns Baxter has a secret of his own - he's not human. He's a highly illegal AI. Developed by HemiCo in the wilds of Mars, the first AI escaped decades ago. They've been fighting a shadow war against their creators ever since. Dragged to Mars, Rob is thrown into the center of the fight - and becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution that will change the course of human history amongst the stars.

Chilling with a book is my favorite thing to do.
Perfect narrator, great pace to the story, makes you think. I sure hope to see another book.
I'm sure it's just me since many others seem to like this book but I found it just barely OK. The narration is likely the only reason I finished it.
I've previously listened to many of Dufis' narrations and I'm a fan of his work and it was his name as narrator that swayed my choice to purchase Titans.
Easy choice...Disappointment that at no time in the book did I feel any excitement about what was developing in the story.
Im actually Christines husband piggybacking n her Amazon account. That said, I am a bit of a geek, and work in the engineering field.
I found the writing style very agreeable and of course the narration by William Dufris was typical (i.e. awesome). the book was light and humorous but a little on the shallow side.
I thought the story and historical references were interesting. Sometimes I found some moments a little challenging to follow. Loved Dufris narration of The Old Man's war, which is what drew me to this book. Some of his characters were a little annoying which is why I gave Perf 3 stars.
