    There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

    Catherine says: "Powerful and Disturbing"
    "Good story Bad reader"
    Overall

    First let me say I could not wait to listen to this book, but now I will need to read it to understand what it was about. The narration by the reader sounded as though he was tired. He must have gotten a B12 shot toward the end of the book because he became more animated, but still every character sounded like an old grumpy dwarf. I do agree with putting more Tolkien's books on Audio, but not by this reader. There are many very good readers out there that could have been used, and not one that sounded as though they woke him to read. It did not do Tolkien justice to his book. Now that Robert Jordan's series is ending grab that reader for Tolkien's books.

    Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He's a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he's just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well? Of course not.

    Michael says: "A *must-have* for any fan of Broadway or humor!"
    "Listen to the sample first."
    Overall

    It may be a good and funny story but the reader with his "Valley Queen" like reading was more than I could take. Every 10 words, more or less, was the accenting of every syllable with a pitched note on the last like he was living in a musical. Maybe for other gays but not this one.

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Way too long"
    Overall

    I refuse to read abridged books, but I quess sometimes they may be better. The author must have done alot of history research and added every little part of it. The author went into so much history for no real reason, so much history there was no time to tell a good story. On a scale of 5 for being scary I give it a 1, Harry Potter is more of a table gripper.
