Thousands of years ago, Earth’s terraforming program took to the stars. On the world they called Nod, scientists discovered alien life - but it was their mission to overwrite it with the memory of Earth. Then humanity’s great empire fell, and the program’s decisions were lost to time. Aeons later, humanity and its new spider allies detected fragmentary radio signals between the stars. They dispatched an exploration vessel, hoping to find cousins from old Earth. But those ancient terraformers woke something on Nod better left undisturbed. And it’s been waiting for them.

His 1st book was a piece of genius. This one is just good. There is not much added to the initial story other than a reincarnation of pretty much the same. A novel idea and interesting concept to be explored for sure, but don't flogg it to death.

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past whom he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

It finishes and all I want is more... The power of the writer to play around with the audience is tangible throughout. I didn't pay attention uch to the somehow contrived plot, but was utterly hooked by the personal drama between the two main characters. The tension is so well strung, deliciously complicated...

In his much-anticipated debut novel, Hank Green - cocreator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers and SciShow - spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realising she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.

I love this book! New, fresh and so full of life that made me cast a different eye on some of the attitudes of my own teenage daughter. It is surprisingly deep given the very flippant language and pushes on at a tremendous pace. The main characters are believable and well read by Kristen Sieh until Hank Green spoils it all! He so is NOT the character he is reading. We know Andy from April's side of the story and this 'imposter' sounds nothing like him. A pale, meekly, shy and insecure geeky lovable guy all in a sudden becomes this cliché US boy-shool voice, self-assured, tanned well trained good looking body with a bit of an attitude. Shame really.
But hey, I adore the character of April May and the voice she was given by Kristen Sieh.

The girl with the dragon tattoo is not given to forgiveness. Lisbeth Salander has been forged by a brutal childhood and horrific abuse. And repeated attempts on her life. The ink embedded in her skin is a constant reminder of her pledge to fight against the injustice she finds on every side. Confinement to the secure unit of a women's prison is intended as a punishment. Instead, Lisbeth finds herself in relative safety. Flodberga is a failing prison, effectively controlled by the inmates, and for a computer hacker of her exceptional gifts there are no boundaries.

Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team....

Could be from the master himself. Good story, a bit too little detail and a somewhat soppy ending. Well worth it though.

The enthralling biography of the shepherd boy who changed the world with his revolutionary engineering and whose genius we still benefit from today. Thomas Telford's name is familiar, his story less so. Thomas was born in 1757 in the Scottish Borders; his father died in Thomas' infancy, plunging the family into poverty. Telford's life soared to span almost eight decades of gloriously obsessive, prodigiously productive energy. Few people have done more to shape our nation.

The untold story of the heretical thinkers who challenged the establishment to rethink quantum physics and the nature of reality. Every physicist agrees quantum mechanics is among humanity's finest scientific achievements. But ask what it means, and the result will be a brawl. For a century, most physicists have followed Niels Bohr's Copenhagen interpretation and dismissed questions about the reality underlying quantum physics as meaningless.

This is a seriously good book, if a bit vague at the end. I had no idea what a warzone quantum physics could be. Now we are all waiting for the next big discovery.

Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

A cottage on the coast on a windy evening. Under a pool of yellow light, two figures face each other across a kitchen table. A man and a cat. The story about to be related is so unusual yet so terrifyingly plausible that it demands to be told in a single sitting. The man clears his throat, and leans forward, expectant. 'Shall we begin?' says the cat….

I enjoyed this story very much, but regret the loss of two potentially great characters to literature. What could have been a great classic tale of two very unusual lovers, was all to briefly brushed over by this wrongly placed selfish narrator. I would have liked to know and dwell much longer in this new, mysterious cat world, but instead was rushed to a very superficial conclusion. This book could easily have been much longer and much better written.
