    World renowned critic John Gardner has received prestigious awards for his wide range of literary achievements including short stories, novels, and essays. When he turns his talents to retelling Beowulf, the earliest epic in British literature, the result is a work that combines extensive knowledge with a marvelous strain of pure fun. In Gardner's version of the epic, instead of lauding the helmeted hero, Beowulf, the spotlight shines on Grendel.

    David says: "The dragon's speech is the best part"
    "The Monster's Point of View..."
    Overall

    George Guidall's interpretation of Grendel provides superb narration of the darker side (the monster's point of view) of the classic epic Beowulf. To be enjoyed by age appropriate younger readers (Grade 8 and up) as well as adults!

    What begins with A? Aunt Annie's alligator! Learn the ABCs - the Dr. Seuss way.

    Saturnberry says: "Absolutely hilarious - a great reading."
    "A good time for Learning!"
    Overall

    My nephew, Jack (2 years old), giggles when ever we play any of the Dr. Seuss books, (especially the Cat in the Hat), but "ABC" is his favorite! Great for learning anytime and highly recommended by this Uncle!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    I strongly recommend this book to all who love fiction. It does not matter whether you're a fan of science fiction or not - Ender's Game has something that everyone who likes good writing can appreciate. Great narration!

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Great Listening!"
    Overall

    I found the story well told, the characters brought to life and the balance of detail with just enough left to your imagination. I would recommend this book to most everyone.
