    Would you listen to Life, the Universe, and Everything again? Why?

    I could listen to Martin Freeman read this 100 times and never get tired of it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marvin is my favorite character because he is just so pathetic. I also like The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy if you can consider it a character, which I do.


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

    Everything. The various voices, the sarcastic tone. He truly brings the books to life and I think Douglas Adams would love his narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Douglas Adams always makes me laugh. For absurdity if nothing else.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great book with a fantastic narration. Everyone should get it.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ender's Game to be better than the print version?

    I would rarely say yes to this but with the full cast performance I would have to agree that in this case the audio is better!


    What about Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s performance did you like?

    I loved their performances.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book had several locations where I laughed but mostly it just made me cry and feel pity for ender.

  • The Book Thief

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 56 mins)

    Story
    (6340)

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Shannon says: "Word Thief"
    "Fantastic"

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

    I haven't listened to any of his other narrations but I plan to check them out!

    Books can change your life.

    When her own first child is tragically still-born, the young Mette is pressed into service as a wet-nurse at the court of the mad king, Charles VI of France. Her young charge is the princess, Catherine de Valois, caught up in the turbulence and chaos of life at court. Mette and the child forge a bond, one that transcends Mette’s lowly position. But as Catherine approaches womanhood, her unique position seals her fate as a pawn between two powerful dynasties.

    Would you listen to The Agincourt Bride again? Why?

    Yes I probably would. I loved the narration and mostly enjoyed the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Agincourt Bride?

    The Battle of Agincourt description.
    The bond between Giomette and Catherine.
    The birth-scene of Elise's daughter.
    The wedding planning and wedding between Catherine and Henry.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the glen when they have Owen play the harp and then King Henry plays for Catherine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I really wish that was possible sometimes!

    I felt like the last chapter was very rushed but other than that I really loved the book.
