    Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine, number-one New York Times best-selling author George R. R. Martin is a giant in the field of fantasy literature and one of the most exciting storytellers of our time. Now he delivers a rare treat for listeners: a compendium of his shorter works, collected into two stunning volumes, that offers fascinating insight into his journey from young writer to award-winning master.

    If I would have expected less from such a large sellection it would have been better.

    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.

    Story

    This was one series of disappointments. I can't believe I spent months on these books. A lifeless and talentless ending cheaply done. Roy Dotrice makes every character sound like an old man. I give it one star only because of its length. Yuck!

    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.

    Story

    This story would have better served by a narrator whose voice is not so distinct. Everyone, I mean everyone, sounds like an old man!! Dotrice seems unable to soften his voice for youth or female. Few charactors are able to stand out for they all sound too similar. A real shame.

  • Sarum: The Novel of England

    Story
    (304)

    In Sarum, Edward Rutherfurd weaves a compelling saga of five English families whose fates become intertwined over the course of centuries. While each family has its own distinct characteristics, the successive generations reflect the changing character of Britain. We become drawn not only into the fortunes of the individual family members, but also the larger destinies of each family line.

    Story

    Not recommended reading for entertainment. Not bad if you want a history lesson - 30 hours on the history of one city in England. No charactor developement. McCaddon may do better with some material to work with.

  • The Case for a Creator

    Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded. Today science is supports the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. Darwinism has faltered in the face of facts and hard reason. Science definitely gives faith a boost as new findings emerge about the complexity of our universe. Strobel re-examines the theories that once led him away from God. You'll encounter discoveries from cosmology, DNA research, and human consciousness that present evidence in The Case for a Creator.

    Alan Rither says: "Excellent Summary of Apologetics"
    "Incredibly challenging and thorough"
    Overall

    Mr. Strobel has left no doubt shrouded rock unturned in presenting this argument. He researches this theory with a fine scientific examination of the facts and presents his ideas clearly. Very thought provoking and definitly worth the read over and over.

  • A History of the Arab Peoples

    Story
    (56)

    Despite the turmoil of Arab nationalism and fundamentalism, Middle Eastern wars, and oil crises, the history of the Arab world has been little known and poorly understood in the West. One reason may be that, for more than half a century, there has been no up-to-date single volume work that chronicles the story of Arab civilization - until now.

    Tim says: "Daunting quantity of information!"
    "Partial and limited"
    Overall

    Mr. Hourani, does the arab peoples a disservice by placing their origen at the 7th century. A rich and distant heritage should not be ignored. This book would be more aptly titled A History of the Islamic Faith. It is shallow and without the slightest color attributed to its cover. Mostly a long disertation on lineage of leadership. Difficult to get excited about.
