Not saying it's bad work, but I just couldn't find the handle. There was simply no common ground between myself and Mr. Stross.

Couldn't pause except for pressing brief needs.

Quinto's performance was subtle and most compelling. I wish to thank Audible for leading me to a new author. I will certainly explore more Scalzi in the future. I would like to see more choices of speculative fiction short works on audiobooks.

An old favorite (the complete trilogy is a must) enhanced by the talents of a wonderful reader, actor, storyteller. I doubt that many people would ever say that the Lyonesse tale is less than extremely appealing.

There is so much that can and has been said about this book. I will simply add my own opinion. The Dispossessed is a must read and one of the pillars of modern speculative fiction, original in everyway possible. It is a work that will touch your soul and is particularly germain to today's America.

An index should always be included with books of short stories! Once I buy such a book it is annoying to go thru the beginning of each story, to find what is on the first page of all printed books for a very good reason.

Loved it, not as dazzling as Neuromancer, but much more finely constructed. A tale of a perfectly believable American favela, intricate and independent.

A wonderfully complex novel that smoothly weaves many subplots and loose ends into a magnificent tapestry. Stephenson floats to top level of speculative fiction writers with an ease that belies the virtuosity of his work. His characters are individuals who balance on an edge of graphic novel hyperbole and yet are grounded by real human background and emotional interactions. No plot summary here, it would be an injustice to the reader and an impossibility for this writer. However, to end with mentioning the heights of satire herein achieved would be a disservice. Any reader who undertakes the challenge of Snow Crash will be rewarded well beyond their effort.

Only problem is that being read to often makes me feel very sleepy! Great book from my distant past.
