Hope y’all had fun getting your geek on May the Fourth. This is a quick post to let you know that Audible is continuing the celebration with a Sci Fi sale of audio books (which ends May 10th)
Lots of great choices. I will highlight four that I’ve read and reviewed. They’re all very different and all great reads (and listens).
Ender’s Game is one of my favorite books and this audio play is superbly done. Orson Scott Card rewrote his book as an audio play; this production really brings it out. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Ender’s Game Alive Review. It’s up for 3 Audies. Here’s a bit more behind the scenes:
Romulus Buckle & the City of the Founders is some serious swashbuckling fun – get your Steampunk on with fun characters and flying action. Romulus Buckle & the City of the Founders Review
Solaris is a sleek psychological thriller with great characters and interesting relationships. Mr. Lem does some intriguing reflection on love, trust, purpose and objective reality, all of which is done in the context of a great story. Solaris Review
Technomancer deals with grey men, the Community and power. It’s part detective story, part urban fantasy and part invasion of aliens. While I haven’t had an opportunity to fullly review it yet, I do include it in some Reflections on Evil As Portrayed in Conemporary SciFi & Fantasy
It’s a great time to indulge your inner geek.
