What are your top 3 podiobooks not written by you?

  • Avatar of James Keeling

    I wonder if this is remenicent of the furor over the old serialized pulp novels and radio shows.  Interesting from a social aspect.

    7th son. was too much, it probably would not have annoyed me as much near the end if i had started listening the begining of the podcast (when he started it) instead of catching up with books one and two and 3/4 of three before i had to wait between each episode. but i started to get annoyed with it towards the end, could not wait to get it over with. don’t get me wrong, i think it was a great story and hutchins tells it well. i do have it on my list of must hear podcasts i give to people, it’s just for me, i should have put a few days between each episode instead od doing a steady diet of it. maybe it was the cliffhanger ending of EVERY episode. oh well, but that’s me, now what do you think of me?? (sorry, been ranting about oprahell too much, kind of rubbed off)

    are among my favorite time travel stories, as well as the Hitchhikers Guide.  And there was that TV series with Jerry O’connell, was it Sliders?  that one was "cute" and I liked it.

    That’s why the suspension of disbelief is so important in stories that have to do with time travel…  Sit back and enjoy…   Kind of like the Mexican….

     O my god I’m going cross-eyed. 

    I agree with you though. It’s usually good storytelling.

    although I enjoyed Enterprise. Not as much as some other Star trek series.

    But hey what the heck.

    Timetravel rocks 

    All that matters is getting my fix.

    Avatar of Thomas Reed

    always makes for good scifi, if done right

    like the remake of orwells time machine and harry potter and the prizoner of azcaban

    but when futzing with the time line, like in star trek’s enterprise (boy, they ruined it didn’t they?), makes for more problems than i care to go into here

    the grandpa paradox of killing you own grand father before your parent is born, makes for unresolvable paradox, if you weren’t born how can you go back in time??

    Avatar of Peter Braat

     wow, it doesn’t happen a lot but I don’t know what to say. 

    now that philosophic 

    All that matters is getting my fix.

    Avatar of Thomas Reed

    i know, i did not realize i had mispelled it (i teach in a predominately hispanic school district) sorry

    and i love your murder by design, just waiting for the next episode (hint hint, if you haven’t already read my comment on your site)

    i haven’t looked to see what else you have done, was gonna do that after i had a few of the podcasts i am catching up with get caught up

    Thanks for putting me in such good company!!!

    Podiobooks I’m listening to:

    "Playing for Keeps" by Mur Lafferty

    "Morevi: Remastered" by Tee Morris

    "Interview for a Wizard" by J.A. Areces

     yeah…. get them at http://www.podiobooks.com

    Avatar of ogreoregon

    You got it right, science and philosophy. Both define time. Perception of time changes with age as well as culture.

    I feel like I haved time traveling down, I can talk to people in the past by going to an old thread and and posting a comment to something that was said months ago. and we are all in different time zones, so I can talk to people in the past or future,  we meet in that time flux in the middle.  What if time is only a self awareness

    and if we could change our personal belief in perception of time then there would be

    no constraints on changing the reality of time and it’s results on behavior.

    I will be watching this thread real close for Ideas,  I only started

    lisnening to podcasts about two months ago.  I have heard all of 

    Siglers stuff and I am doing 7th Son at the moment… I just can

    not get enough!!!!!! 

    Avatar of James Keeling

    I’m really enjoying SWC, but they’re just too sporadic…  get some consistency, they make Sigler look like an atomic clock that’s always on time…  And even though I agree with you… Hutchinssss…..  if "He who should not be named"…  Who does that one trilogy that shall also not be named….
