Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

This book series held my attention and I basically listened to 3 books in the course of one and a half week.
(It helped me through recovering from eye surgery.)

Having been haunted by the past and enslaved by the present, James Griffin-Mars is taking control of the future. Earth is a toxic, sparsely inhabited wasteland - the perfect hiding place for a fugitive ex-chronman to hide from the authorities. James has allies, scientists he rescued from previous centuries. James also has enemies. They include the full military might of benighted solar system ruled by corporate greed and a desperate fear of what James will do next.

The performer on this book has adopted a theatrical style of speaking and treats the whole book as if he is proclaiming a declaration of war.This gets old very quick.

The book itself is uninspired, sloppy, not well structured and not captivating at all. I will not finish this book.

From his rapid-fire stand-up comedy riffs to his breakout role in Mork & Mindy and his Academy Award-winning performance in Good Will Hunting, Robin Williams was a singularly innovative and beloved entertainer. He often came across as a man possessed, holding forth on culture and politics while mixing in personal revelations - all with mercurial, tongue-twisting intensity as he inhabited and shed one character after another with lightning speed. But as Dave Itzkoff shows in this revelatory biography, Williams’ comic brilliance masked a deep well of conflicting emotions and self-doubt.

As someone who enjoyed Robin William's work, I never earlier had an appreciation for his struggles, demons and life's challenges. This book is very well narrated and captures some of Robin's frantic mania so well that it sounds like Robin himself.

I now have an increased appreciation for Robin, not just as an artist, but as a very special human being who will be remembered (and mourned) for a long time to come.
