Spin

Spin: Book #1
By Robert Charles Wilson
Narrated by Scott Brick / 

Spin

“This book won the 2006 Hugo award and in my opinion was completely worthy of the prize. A massive galactic story but with plenty of action grounded on earth and great character development. Super interesting use of relativity and time alteration are an integral part of the plot and makes the space travel more plausible and fascinating. This is another one of those massive scale stories but not difficult to follow because of the way that it is handled. I enjoyed how this book took on huge concepts that effect all mankind and its place in the universe but at the same time kept it human, about human reaction to incredible events, and didn’t get too lost in the technicalities while still utilizing science as a major plot point. It also addressed philosophical and religious issues making it a truly well rounded read.”

Blood Music

By Greg Bear
Narrated by George Guidall /  10 hours 54 minutes

Blood Music

“Greg Bear is quickly becoming one of my favorites. This particular book is medical science fiction, which in my opinion is a sub-genre that deserves more exploration. By far this book contains some of the most original ideas that I have encountered in a long time. For a small book the scale of the story is tremendous. Without spoiling the book I’d like to mention one of the most interesting ideas proposed within the story. In quantum physics it has been proven that the observer of an experiment alters the outcome of said experiment. In this book when observation is concentrated to a large degree the universe has a difficult time adjusting to the observation, and therefore warps the fabric of space-time. I won’t go further into it so as not to give away too much of the story, but this book will have you pondering the mysteries of the universe long after you read it. I highly recommend this book and am greatly looking forward to reading more of his novels. On a side note I also recently listened to the Greg Bear story “Webster” from the Mindwebs radio program, and I highly recommend that too.”

Flowers for Algernon

By Daniel Keyes
Narrated by Jeff Woodman /  8 hours 59 minutes

Flowers for Algernon

“One of the best and most heartbreaking books I’ve read in a long time. The story of a man who is mentally handicapped and goes through an experimental surgery to make him smart. It works and he becomes a genius, but only temporarily. Just long enough to give him a taste of what he has been missing, realize that people always laugh at his expense, fall in love, and generally be a respected human being. But he finds his genius more isolating then when he was dim, both ends of the spectrum being ostracizing and causing him to think differently than others. This book started as a short story, which won a Hugo award, and then was expanded into a novel, which won a Nebula – well deserving of both. It was also adapted into film in 1968 and is worth seeing and almost as touching as the book, the film version is called Charly. There have been many other radio and film adaptations, but I am unfamiliar with these. I don’t want to reveal too much of the story but I will say that the last fifty pages had me crying.”
