    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Story

    The reading of this one is sloppy!
    He randomly mispronounces names of main characters. One paragraph he pronounces it right and the next wrong. It's very distracting.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Story

    It with some trepidation that I purchased this book but couldn't be happier that I did. The story, characters and narration are all exceptional, and most importantly kept my interest throughout. As always, Scott Brick does a fine job of spinning the tale and his transition from one character to another is delivered smoothly and without notice.

    I have already purchased the second in the planned trilogy and definitely would recommend this book to all. Give it a listen, I'm positive you will be as happy as I was.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story

    It was with some trepidation that I purchased this audio book even though it had excellent reviews. This is not the type of book that would normally interest me, but I was hooked within the first ten minutes of listening. Wil Wheaton does a fine job narrating and the story and characters are entertaining from start to finish.

    I do almost all of my listening to audiobooks as a way of keeping my sanity during my hour long commute each day, and found myself taking the long way home just to get in a few more minutes.

    This is a can't miss book in my estimation and it's my bet you will find this book as enjoyable as I did.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Story
    (7088)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Courage,Perserverance & Sacrifice, its all here!"
    Overall

    I was riveted from beginning to end. What an inspirational story of courage, perserverance and sacrafice. You will not be disappointed!
