Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Very much enjoyed this book and the whole trilogy. Writing style is really fun and modern. Story had a fast pace and kept going relentlessly until the end. Reader is perfect. I would recommend this book particularly to people who are long Science fiction fans. Tons of fun references. You'll like Bob too.

Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver.

Elizabeth Kostova's writing style is excellent. Very clean and readable. This story teaches you something about painting, a subject about which I knew almost nothing. The characters are very vivid and well developed. There is a mystery and it is pretty good and Kostova is very good at teasing out the clues as the book progresses. This story had a moment or two where it felt it moved a little slower than I would have liked it to go, however, I believe that is also a sign of a very compelling story. I equate this story to experiencing a piece of art. The performance of the book is excellent and is a cast of multiple readers. Each reader gives added dimension to the characters and definitely is an enhancer to the story.

I would recommend: read the book. Then read Kostova's other work, The Historian, which is even better.

Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

If you love science but aren't immersed in it everyday, this is a fantastic book. It is well written and easy to digest and reviews the salient points, particularly the history of many branches of science. I very much enjoyed the reading and the knowledge. I would highly recommend this book.

Understanding our humanity - the essence of who we are - is one of the deepest mysteries and biggest challenges in modern science. Why do we have bad moods? Why are we capable of having such strange dreams? How can metaphors in our language hold such sway on our actions? As we learn more about the mechanisms of human behavior through evolutionary biology, neuroscience, anthropology, and other related fields, we're discovering just how intriguing the human species is.
