    Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

    "What a terrific romp!"
    Overall

    Pure, unabashed fun.
    I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and the narrator was flawless.
    Someone really did their job well in choosing the perfect voice for this book.
    The funny thing is, I'm more than fed up with all the Goth crap that's all the rage, including vampires and werewolves.
    This series should not be painted with the same brush, nor categorized in the same genre.
    Well done Charlie Huston and Scott Brick...well done indeed.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Thank Goodness"
    Overall

    I was so worried that I'd be disappointed, since there was no way to top Pillars of the Earth.
    Fear not, this book does not disappoint in any way.
    I love John Lee's narration, and Ken Follett gave him such a terrific book to read to us!
    I swear to god though, if he put one more impediment in the main characters way, I was going to box his ears.
    Damn this was a good book, BRAVO!

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Lore says: "Wow - 45 hours long and leaves you wanting more!"
    "Terrific Story!"
    Overall

    Very enjoyable story, and two of the best narrators of all time.
    Well done guys, can't wait for the next in the series!

    Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home. To remedy this, he formed the idea of journeying about his house from room to room to “write a history of the world without leaving home.”

    Tina says: "Another wonderful Bryson"
    "Weak"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything", including the narrator.
    It was with delight that I noticed this book from the same author, and clicked on it without hesitation.
    I'm not sure why the author decided to narrate his own book, but he really should have paid someone like Richard Matthews (narrator of his previous book) to do the honors.
    The material was vaguely interesting, with a few good insights; it was nowhere near as strong or entertaining as A Short History.
    Sorry Bill, I don't enjoy writing a bad review, but I definitely don't feel I got my money's worth here.
    You can do much better than this offering...and next time, hire a pro to read it for us.

  • A Morbid Taste for Bones: The First Chronicle of Brother Cadfael

    Brother Cadfael is on a mission to his Welsh homeland to help obtain the bones of Saint Winifred, which now rest in a small village grave. The villagers are loath to part with the relics of a martyr said to have miraculous powers, but before an agreement can be reached, the one villager most outspoken in his dissent is found murdered. Carefully, kindly, and with cunning enough to please any mystery fan, the good monk sets out to solve his first case.

    Steve says: "Wonderful Reading and Listening"
    "Great Romp"
    Overall

    Good pace, nice character development, and well crafted plot.
    The setting is quite interesting, and the main character a gem.
    Very satisfying conclusion, with just enough surprise to leave the reader with an "Oh of course!".
