1 : Windswept

by Adam Rakunas
Apr 17, 2017
8 Hours
Ages 18+
Labor organizer Padma Mehta is on the edge of space and the edge of burnout. All she wants is to buy out a little rum distillery and retire, but she's supposed to recruit 500 people to the Union before she can. She's only thirty-three short. So when a small-time con artist tells her about forty people ready to tumble down the space elevator to break free from her old bosses, she checks it out -- against her better judgment. It turns out, of course, it was all lies.

As Padma should know by now, there are no easy shortcuts on her planet. And suddenly retirement seems farther away than ever: she's just stumbled into a secret corporate mission to stop a plant disease that could wipe out all the industrial sugarcane in Occupied Space. If she ever wants to have another drink of her favorite rum, she's going to have to fight her way through the city's warehouses, sewage plants, and up the elevator itself to stop this new plague.

At first I was skeptic about this but once I started I was drawn in. This is a really surprising good book.
Lighthearted Cyberpunk by Catdaddy (Posted on 11/29/2017)
Or, “Run in Spaaaace!” Featuring the first person narration (yay!) by Nanette Savard (doubleyay!), “Windswept” has the feel of feminist cyberpunk. It is generally lighthearted, like vintage Neal Stephenson, but earns the “cyberpunk“ moniker: the program is dense with atmosphere, jargon and attitude, even including faulty implant tech. With a colorful supporting cast, intriguing twists to the story, and a lot of insight into the manufacturer of run and sugar cane, this is quite a fun story. The world-building is rich, sprinkled with terms from the culture of Chinese rice plantations, such as “kampong” and “tuck tuck”.
The drama is appropriate for older teens, with discreet sex and PG-13 violence, but language that is quite strong throughout (though not particularly offensive: just appropriate to the story).
Windswept Away by Daniel (Posted on 11/18/2017)
I love the voice acting of Nanette Savard, I love the futuristic distopia world. Its not the typical future distopia story, this is not some overly dramatic thing but bad things happened and how the "every day" person works to survive.

Padma Mehta is a bad ass character who deals with life and trying to make life better for her and others. She is not the typical hero but she is one. The world and the politics that run it are fascinating and making for an interesting over lording villain that we fear.

I love when their is singing in the stories. I love all of the characters and the voice acting was astounding. The range of emotions from ALL the actors made the world feel so much more alive that I have listened to the story over and over. I can't wait to listen to the next one.
An amazing character by Victoria (Posted on 11/18/2017)
Yep.. Really is a movie in your mind. No Imagination needed. Fantastic strong main character. The acting is First Rate. Any emotion she experiences you experience. The actions scenes are totally visual. Sound effects music all of it adds to a satisfying adventure.
Great new series! by Laura (Posted on 9/19/2017)
I'm always eager to get my hooks into a new futuristic sci-fi series, especially with first person narration, and this one delivers! Really enjoyed the performances, especially Nannette Savard as Padma! Hoping many more episodes will follow!

Enjoyable new series by damien (Posted on 5/16/2017)
A creative and different new series. It's nice to see a female protagonist that can kick ass, but isn't overly sexualized either. I look forward to seeing where the series goes from here.

Confession Time by ElectricOutcast (Posted on 5/11/2017)
I actually bought an Ebook copy of this because it ran for like 2.99 before I bought the GraphicAudio version. So I thought it would be cool to actually read this book while listening to the audiobook at the same time, like in my childhood where I had all the Disney read along tapes. There were some parts that you guys left out but they were mostly minor details that I could go back and read later, but other than that, the audiobook was real easy to follow along with and it helped give me a vivid vision on the events in this book.

Now I don't want to bring up politics on here but it's kinda relevant to my opinion of the book. I think if you're a Pro-Union person or if you're someone that is turned off by greed, I think this book is the anti-Atlas Shrugged. So help me, I plan to have more and more people read or listen to this book and have this thing become viral because the message should be heard.
interesting, funny, and action by rafael (Posted on 4/28/2017)
