    Story

    I have a new favorite fairytale novel! I so loved this book. I need to clarify that I am a musician. I think music is indispensable. I've sung and played musical instruments my whole life. I love musicals, operettas, and opera. This audio version is definitely a musical and is really an operetta in many places. This book tells a story of a land that relies heavily on music as art, entertainment, achievement, tradition and base of belief. They use it in everything from cooking and cleaning to royal ceremony. They have included many songs and all the musical passages are sung. The characters are well-drawn and full. I cared so much about them and that it all came out right . I cried with tears down my cheeks at the end. It is definitely good and made much better by the full-cast audio recording. I thought it was lovely. It has made my whole week and I will definitely visit this new friend again. If you love musicals and fairytales you won't want to miss this wonderful story.

    Aza is far from beautiful. With pale skin and blood-red lips (not to mention ungainly size), she is seen as odd, at best. But Aza does have one blessing: a voice of astonishing beauty. In Ayortha, where singing is the main mode of communication, this gift is no small thing, and soon Aza finds herself rising at court. But, as she will discover, unexpected good fortune can also bring unexpected danger.

    Story

    I had previously read Ben Franklin's Autobiography which was very good, but I really had wanted to hear his part in the founding of the nation. I highly recommend the autobiography as well, because it gives his personal style, flair and philosophy which helped him become who he was. It is very good, but I really wanted more and this book gave it to me. I so enjoyed listening to how much of a part he played not only in the shaping of the antecedents to the Revolution, but the part he played during the war. The Declaration of Independence, and the Constitutional Convention are either glossed over or left out of his autobiography. I had no idea he created batteries, discovered the gulf stream currents in the Atlantic, or that he conducted his own end of the war in Euroope as an envoy to France. I'm amazed at how much a visionary he was and how much he shaped our current society, by creating public libraries, and hospitals as well as the US Postal service and currency. His ability to motivate the public and move them in his direction without taking credit is a model to any modern day politician. This doesn't say anything about his scientific discoveries. The man is an amazing study and well worth any time and credits. I really loved this book. I don't think I can recommend it highly enough.

    Perhaps more than even Washington, Jefferson, or Adams, Ben Franklin is the Founding Father who best exemplifies the authentic American spirit and values. Eminent historian Thomas Fleming paints a lively portrait of this self-made man blessed with a wealth of talents: a best-selling author, the most important newspaper publisher in America, and a world-renowned scientist and inventor before he took on the task of becoming the true "Father" of American independence.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have recommended this series many times. It is fun for many ages of people who enjoy fantasy adventures. My whole family is reading it. It has a much better satisfying ending than the last one, but there will be one more book. My main reasons for recommendation would be humor, adventure, imagination, character development. Riordan is a really great author. I am so glad he started writing these books. this book does give you something you may need to talk to younger children about.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really like the character development in Frank and Hazel. They grow a lot. Piper and Jason both discover things about themselves or their powers. Reyna and many other characters, especially villains come back to make a reappearance. Leo even gets to have a bit of a romance. Loved it. Percy and Annabeth have a tough time just hanging onto life to do too much more than they did in the last book.


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

    He does a great job with this series. I especially like his cheeky voice for Leo and his solemn funeral voice for Nico. He does the women's voices well too. Coach Hedge is a crackup!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I especially was moved by Percy and Annabeth's escape through the doors of Death. Also Frank and Hazel in the House of Hades. Great ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I maybe didn't like it as well as some of Riordan's Heroes of Olympus books, because it was so dark, but it was still good. I'm really looking forward to the last book in the series. Three of my family members have read it now and my two youngest (9 and 12 years old) are still in process. I've got one that refuses to read it because the last book was too much of a cliff-hanger. He wants to wait to read it when the next book comes out to complete the series. Great book for the families. Does have one issue that you may need to discuss with your children, but nothing that shouldn't be discussed anyway. Still clean overall.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Kate is a great heroine. Smart, clever, and she evolves beautifully in the story.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope this is my first one. She did great! The french accent is NOT easy and can be cliche and painful to listen to if done wrong, but she really great! I'm very impressed.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, why isn't book 2, "Until I die" available? Book 3 is coming out next year, this needs to be added as well! Don't leave us hanging please.

    Not as much memorable, as SO SAD! The part where Tucker has to make a choice between himself and his horse. I sobbed. I own horses and they are my everything. Hit home and made me a mess.


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

    What's your purpose?

  • "Lovely, unusual ghost story"

    19 of 19 helpful votes

    A Certain Slant of Light is a different slant on a ghost story, and I really enjoyed watching the way it progressed. The two main characters are ghosts looking in on the living world, at first experiencing it without being noticed and later going unnoticed for what they really are. The prose is lovely and elegant, the story emotional, and once I got into this it was hard to stop listening. The story felt fully fleshed out, and yet I was left wanting a bit more at the end. That's probably a mark of a great book but for myself I would have prefered just a little bit more info in a couple areas, but overall this was a great listen!

    This is very much a love story, so be warned to expect a bit of mush. I found that part of the plot a bit rushed, not in terms of pacing but for the characters, and there were several times I found myself aghast at the lack of foresight shown by the main characters in some ways. Let's just say that not all ghosts haunt Girl Scout meetings, where we were taught to tread through the forest so as to leave as little damage as possible! That's a thought that was with me pretty much throughout the whole book!

    This is listed as a young adult novel, but it's one of the most adult ones I've come across and I wouldn't think of limiting this to a teenage audience. This is not at all a kiddie story. There's a good bit of sexual content, which, although never crude, might be something for which parents might want to prescreen for younger teens.

    The narrator is just right for the part. She perfectly captures the hushed urgency of the gentle-souled Helen, a ghost desperate to communicate yet terrified of notice.

    In the class of the high school English teacher she has been haunting, Helen feels them: for the first time in 130 years, human eyes are looking at her. They belong to a boy, a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now. And Helen, terrified, but intrigued, is drawn to him. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this unlikely couple with their first challenge.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.
