    In 2002, Catherine Asaro won the Nebula Award for The Quantum Rose, the sixth novel in her Saga of the Skolian Empire. This very same novel was also named Best SF Novel by the Romantic Times. Schism: Part One of Triad is the 10th novel in this multiple award-winning series

    Rebecca says: "Poor Narrator Distracts from Good Book"
    "A good story in the series, but ..."
    Overall

    I don't know how the producers could have someone who can't pronounce neutrino narrate this story. The inconsistency between narrators of books in the series is annoying, but mispronouncing scientific words in books that are so heavily embroidered with science is maddening.

    Berlitz Kids' The Five Crayons is the introduction to the Adventures with Nicholas series. Featuring easy Spanish vocabulary and simple sentences, this story teaches colors, numbers from one to ten, rooms and furniture, animals, weather expressions, means of transportation, location words, and more. The 60-minute program offers a catchy, thematically related song for each chapter. It's a fun learning experience for students, parents, or teachers.

    Overall

    I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that this wasn't very user-friendly without some paper to go with it. The beeps for turning the page emphasize the need for a book to look at. I was hoping the downloaded file would help, but it's a bare bones doc file. I would have preferred a pdf with maybe some coloring-book style pages that would match the beeps. Too much to ask for in an audio book I guess.
