Audible Suggestions

Hi EDL-Team,

 

thank you for talking about Audible. It's an enrichment to my life. I also followed your suggestion for "The Martian" and enjoyed the story very much. Since I often listen to you while driving, I'd like to ask, whether you could add your listen/read-suggestions to the show-links. Seth was talking about a SF-series he reads and since I'm constantly searching for more book-like brain input these days (whichever channel), I was wondering what it was again.

Of course everybody else, who's reading this, feel free to put your favourites under this posting.

 

A nice day for y'all (<- hope I used this correctly)

Honor Harrington rocks!

It is the Honor Harrington series by David Weber.  The first book is called On Basilisk Station, and it came out in 1992 (at least the printed book did).

Book Suggestions

The Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell (six books in the original series plus 5 in the "Beyond the Frontier" follow-up series)

Enders Game by Orson Scott Card (16 books and counting in this universe, but Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow are the stand-outs)

The Demon Under the Microscope by Thomas Hager- A fascinating look at the history of antibiotics

Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue by John McWhorter- A look at how the English language has evolved

Redshirts by John Scalzi - a comedic look at what might happen in if the Star Trek universe was real

Daemon by Daniel Suarez - A rogue AI created by a tormented genius is unleashed after his death (Freedom TM was the less successful but still worthwhile sequel)
