9781470844844: Birthright: The Book of Man (Far Future series, Book 1)

[Read by Tom Weiner]

An epic novel of human expansion across the stars

This brilliant science fiction novel constructs a blueprint of mankind's history-social, political, economic, scientific, and religious-for the next eighteen thousand years. Through a series of adventures, it illustrates clear, focused ideas about our birthright and our destiny.

Since this 1982 debut, Mike Resnick has emerged as one of the most honored science fiction authors of his time, picking up forty-odd Hugo and Nebula nominations and awards. He has set twenty-five novels and a novella in the future that was outlined in this book. Now, those who missed it the first time around can catch up on this mind-boggling, all-encompassing precedent to Resnick's fiction.

[Foreword by Raymond E. Feist]

About the Author:

MIKE RESNICK's outstanding work has won numerous awards, including five Hugos and one Nebula, and has been nominated for dozens more. He has traveled extensively in Africa, the setting for Kirinyaga. He divides his time between Cincinnati and Orlando, Florida.

From AudioFile:

It seems like Resnick's episodic science fiction novel should make an ideal audiobook. Though it covers the next several thousand years of human history, he tells his sweeping story in a series of adventures that illustrate single, focused ideas in clear, accessible prose. However, Adams Morgan's narration doesn't fit the work, and so diminishes its appeal. Morgan's voice is clear, but he keeps a great emotional distance and maintains too regular a pace, undercutting the action and adding an irony not in the original. What's more, because individual character voices are not well differentiated from one another, humans and aliens sound pretty much alike, which is confusing.
