5.0 out of 5 stars I Hit the Motherlode!!! 28 Jun 2014
By J. Gooden - Published on
If you could sum up Sci-Fi Motherlode in three words, what would they be?

Unexpected, Twisted, Out-There. I grew up thinking I didn't like science fiction. Who knew that it could be so much fun? Robert Jeschonek definitely has a creative mind and a twisted sense of humor. Between his clever writing and the narrator's brilliant interpretation of the characters, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this listen. In fact, I had a hard time hitting the "pause" button. Even though this is a collection of short stories, Jeschonek does a fabulous job of fully developing characters and their voices left me with a definite picture in my mind of who each one "really was." And, because it is a collection of short stories, this book is perfect for either a "quick hit" or an all-day drive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Smidgen the Snack Cake. I know that darned chocolate-coated demon was calling me from the shelf of the grocery store just yesterday. I think I want a plush Smidgen. Maybe a plush VOODOO Smidgen. Yeah, that's the ticket!!

What does Bill Lord bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well, first of all he's got a great, voices. I hope they all get along inside his head! Seriously, he must be a very talented actor. His interpretation of the characters really enhanced the picture of each of them in my head. I didn't want to hit pause! He had me completely drawn in. I was disappointed to finish the last story -- he left me wanting more!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Twelve and a Half Hours, Eighteen Stories, Infinitely Twisted

Any additional comments?

This book is good, clean fun and appropriate for both adult and younger adult (teenaged) audiences.
