    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    What did you love best about A Game of Thrones?

    Winter is coming. But after listening I'm still not sure why that is a big deal.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    the narrator was ok for the story.


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

    some laughable moments, or am i just sick.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the book series and HBO series. that being said, and here it comes, (BUT), it does have a-lot of paddiing in the story line that you could do without. just be ready for a looooong ride when you start the series.

    In the distant future, horrible dreams torment Admiral James T. Kirk, dreams prompted by his reading of Strangers from the Sky, a book about that historic first contact. He dreams of an alternate reality where he somehow changed the course of history, and destroyed the Federation before it began.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book is not bad, the audio version is too short and cant possibly fit the book into 1 hour and 32 minutes.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Margaret Wander Bonanno? Why or why not?

    yes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Takei and Leonard Nimoy ’s performances?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see an unabridged version.

    One woman's story as she blogs about - and fights back against - the zombie apocalypse.

    Allison Hewitt and her five colleagues at the Brooks and Peabody Bookstore are trapped together when the zombie outbreak hits. Allison reaches out for help through her blog, writing on her laptop. It may also be her only chance to reach her mother. But as the reality of their situation sinks in, Allison's blog becomes a harrowing account of her edge-of-the-seat adventures.
