    Barbara Thompson says: "It's All There - And It's Wonderful"
    "Reading style matches the drama of Genesis"

    At first I was a bit disappointed in the reading style presented in this audiobook, but after the part about Sodom and Gomorrah, I had to turn off my iPod for a moment and catch my breath. This is definitely worth the purchase! The language is contemporary but not in a way that detracts from the stories of the Patriarchs. Outstanding!!

    Good message. Better motivator than all the motivational speakers I've ever heard. Not the last time I'll enjoy this one.

  • Starhawk: Priscilla Hutchins, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Jack McDevitt
    • Narrated By Tavia Gilbert
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins has finally realized her lifelong dream: She’s completed a nerve-bending qualification flight for a pilot’s license. Her timing is far from optimal, however. Faster-than-light travel has only recently become a reality, and the World Space Authority is still learning how to manage long-range missions safely. To make matters worse, efforts to prepare two planets for colonization are killing off native life-forms, outraging people on Earth.So there’s not a lot of demand for space pilots.

    shirley says: "lacking attention to detail"
    "If new to McDevitt, get this title first"

    Story seemed forced, almost contrived. Much of this could have been exposition in a new novel about those aliens first encountered at Talios. There were so many threads left hanging. I feel like McDevitt's biggest fan and this is not what I've come to expect from him. Even so, I did not feel it was a total waste of time. If you've never read McDevitt, start with this one and you will not be disappointed when you enjoy his other books.

  • A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5

    • UNABRIDGED (49 hrs)
    • By George R. R. Martin
    • Narrated By Roy Dotrice
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    James says: "Not as good as previous books"
    "If the gods are good, the sixth is the last"
    What disappointed you about A Dance with Dragons?

    I can only echo the sentiments others have already expressed. Dotrice made Aria and Dany sound like old Irish women and pronounced names in later books differently than he did in earlier books. It was so distracting it almost ruined the book.

    What could George R. R. Martin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    One word: editing. For crying out loud, this could have been done in 3 books if he'd cut out only half of the repeated comments, story lines, detailed descriptions of foods, crude references to women's body parts and Theon Grayjoy's thoughts. Too many protagonists, none of them primary.

    What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

    I must give Dotrice credit for tackling a gargantuan job of voicing hundreds of characters. But he should have at least saved some sound clips from earlier readings to make the primary characters sound the same in books four and five as in books one through three.

    What character would you cut from A Dance with Dragons?

    I wouldn't presume to cut characters in a wholesale fashion, but I would have liked to see severe cutbacks on the details of story lines for Theon Grayjoy, Brienne of Tarth and Davos Seaworth. The entirity of their contributions could have been handled with exposition, and much more briefly than it was done.

    Any additional comments?

    There are so many things that feel unfinished. Gendry, the bastard son of Robert Baratheon is one. Rickon Stark disappears for two books, then is given passing mention in book 5, so why was he a character at all?
