  • The Colour of Magic: Discworld #1

    The Colour of Magic, the first novel in Terry Pratchett's wildly imaginative Discworld series, takes the listener on a remarkable journey. The magical planet of Discworld is supported by four massive elephants who stand on the back of the Great A'Tuin, a giant turtle swimming slowly through the mysterious interstellar gulf. An eccentric expedition sets out to explore the planet, encountering dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and of course "The Edge" of the planet.

    "Loved the book not so sure on the narrator"
    Overall

    I have read many of the Discworld books and really enjoyed them. I purchase the audio book for my boyfriend and son to enjoy a on long car trip, the reading is ok but the narrator has a nasal quility I didn't like and I have to agree with my boyfriend that listening to it makes you sleepy.

    Clare Cosi used to manage the historic Village Blend coffeehouse…until she opted for quieter pastures and a more suburban life. But after ten years and a little friendly cajoling from the owner (a fresh pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain was all it took), she's back to the grind. With a sprawling rent-free apartment directly above the Village Blend, her cat Java by her side, and plenty of coffeehouse redecorating ideas, Clare is thrilled to return to work. Until she discovers the assistant manager unconscious in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The lead actually having a clue, she stumbles along and wouldn't have solved it the answer hadn't come looking for her.


    Was On What Grounds worth the listening time?

    Yes but won't buy more if is is series.


    Any additional comments?

    Learned a lot about coffee

    Emperor Mollusk. Intergalactic Menace. Destroyer of Worlds. Conqueror of Other Worlds. Mad Genius. Ex-Warlord of Earth. Not bad for a guy without a spine. But what's a villain to do after he's done... everything. With no new ambitions, he's happy to pitch in and solve the energy crisis or repel aliens invaders should the need arise, but if he had his way, he'd prefer to be left alone to explore the boundaries of dangerous science. Just as a hobby, of course. Retirement isn't easy though.

    What did you love best about Emperor Mollusk Versus the Sinister Brain?

    Cheesy like classic Dr Who episodes. A brain in an exosuit, pet giant centipede, bird body guard.


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

    No, I don't believe I have.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed it well enough, but would ask a friend to buy unless it was a daily deal. The characters didn't grow through the whole book. The lead was kind of dislikable and author relied on falling objects too much in the beginning.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The premise was the most interesting


    Would you be willing to try another one of Yahtzee Croshaw’s performances?

    Yes his voice was a little nasal but character were easy to tell apart.


    Could you see Mogworld being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a TV movie or mini-series


    Any additional comments?

    It was a fun ride just wish lead zombie would have more clearly grown.

    He's not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age - and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners - a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls - he’s going to put his plan into effect. The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start with somethingsmall. Something like a king....

    Would you listen to The Spirit Thief again? Why?

    So far no this book serves as an intro to the world and characters. It left me wanting to know more about them but the under lying story isn't complex or worth a 2nd listen to me right now


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The villain was flat and predictable. The main cast was interesting but incomplete lots left for future. I hope the rest of the series pays off.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the scenes with the thief. The voice acting and dialog are fun.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Wished the book was better able to stand on its own but really feels like it is a setup for more books.

    Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Her best friend hisselpenny got intolerably dumb and the sister was annoying.


    Has Changeless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Wierd but the ending, I thought it was the most emotional and best written.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was just weaker then the rest and the characters too dumb. I still enjoyed the book.

    In the festive season of Winterfair on the planet Barrayar, Lord Miles Vorkosigan is making elaborate preparations for his wedding. The long-awaited event stirs up romance and intrigue among his eccentric family and friends, particularly for bioengineered space mercenary Sergeant Taura and shy, diffident Armsman Roic.

    Overall

    I had read two of Lois McMaster Bujold books over the years but nothing containing Miles himself. I have really enjoyed these audio books they make the miles fly. I found the narator easy to listen to, he changed for each character but not to such an extreme as to be unplesant to listen to. The reading was nice and smooth, without putting you to sleep.
