Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.

This was the first Gaiman book I ever read, it's not too hard to get into, flows nicely and is an easy book to get through in one solid sitting or over a week.

You were on your way home when you died.It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.And that’s when you met me." A short story about the universe.

I got this after riding the high from the Martian, while it is utterly different I am not disapointed. 8 minutes, what do you have to lose?

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

  • Exhilarating adventure. Brilliantly executed.

The best hard sci-fi in existence, period.

quite simply this is one of the best books I have read in the last few years. The mix of dark humor from the protagonists perspective, to the efforts made back on earth leave a tingle running down your spine for most of the book, I have never felt such a desire for a protagonist to survive like this. to top it all off the author is not afraid to show his math and it just works. Buy this audiobook, buy a hard copy, buy it for friends.

The Killer Wore Leather is a deliciously tongue-in-cheek murder mystery set at a leather convention, allowing listeners into this private world of personalities and peccadiloes. It's the kinkiest game of clue ever, with a sex toy as the murder weapon, and every leather man and woman lacks an alibi. Cleverly crafted and highly humorous, Antoniou is at her wicked best in this pause-resistant fetish fest.

a tongue in cheek look at the pageantry behind fetish events. The authors knowledge and previous books culminate in a very funny parody. it's not particularly titillating but it's not meant to be. just pure comedy.
