One of my better purchases!

An extremely interesting biography of the Christian apologist and teacher. I had heard his name but knew little about him and after listening to the excerpt thought it sounded interesting. It was much better than I expected, both in all he had to say about his life growing up in India and all that happened to him in North America. It was full of human interest, and once I started listened I could not stop. The Simon Vance reads well, and just faded into the background.

A very good biography of the well known 19th Century Christian evangelist. I have read other biographies of DL Moody, but Dorsett covers ground have I have not come across before. Unlike some previous efforts here we have the man painted 'warts and all.' Very well read.

Very Good

A classic time travel story, which describes an experiment in which one can travel through time by self hypnosis. Very enjoyable and very well read. The sound quality is more like good FM Radio rather than CD, but I did not find it off-putting.

Rendezvous with Rama cover art

Excellent

5 out of 5 stars

I found this most enjoyable, and found myself wanting to learn more and more about Rama and its makers. By the way I have listened to many audiobooks with this narrator and have become used to him, so while he may annoy some, I had no problem whatsoever. Only thing is, when will Rama 2 be on audible?

Very enjoyable

Very well read and a truly interesting space yarn

Not the best

I have read/listened to all the Coyote books plus the two spin off books, (Spindrift and Galaxy blues) and enjoyed them all, but this one is just all right. It is read well enough, but there is really very little going, as it follows one character's involvement with an alien religious cult, however at the end it does truly take off. I was tempted to stop listening half way along but am so glad I listened to get that ending. There are so many areas which might have been explored and were taken nowhere. Do not judge the rest of the series from this book

A excellent little adventure

A well read, easy to follow story, in the tradition of Robert Louis Stevenson

A story of first contact

Overall

I found this a most enjoyable story of first contact. It is well read and easy to follow. Some die hard readers of Science Fiction may be familiar with this type of plot and find little new, but I simply enjoyed it. I supposed it helped a little that I read/listened to the Coyote novels, but that is not necessary to enjoy this book. This is much more "alien" than the Coyote books.

A well read and easy to follow time travel yarn. It follows the usual "be careful what you do in in the past or you will alter the future" form, but I found it a most enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours journey

A really good book spoilt for me.

I was really looking forward to listening to this audiobook, and found much of it very interesting and enjoyable. However it was spoilt for me by the explicit sex in parts of it. This kind of content does nothing for me and I often thing it is added to increase sales. It is a great pity that Audible do not indicate that kind of content in the same way as I-tunes and others do.
