    Story
    (3458)

    The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

    A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

    Dr. says: "Slow, Strange, and (ultimately) Satisfying"
    "Creativity rules! Patience is a must."

    Would you listen to 1Q84 again? Why?

    Yes. To be able to grasp at the things I didn't catch the first time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 1Q84?

    Aomame in the room with "The Leader".


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Tengo Kawana


    Who was the most memorable character of 1Q84 and why?

    Fuka-Eri (Eriko Fukada), she's 17 year old high school student, she's most memorable for being so odd in the whole story - that and a scene from the stormy night will get people to think how different yet not so different she is. Weird but true to her character.


    Any additional comments?

    Patience - Patience - Patience is the key, if you have none then this book isn't for you (remember, these are three books in one go - so you know), it's very long and detailed. You are basically in the world of 1Q84 once you're in - you'll know if you look outside.

    Story
    (1125)

    The prolific, perennially best selling author recounts his early life and writing struggles, gives advice on the crucial aspects of the writing art, and talks about his much-publicized, near-fatal accident.

    Bill says: "Excellent!"
    "Stephen King's Memoir, Helpful - Informative."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Writing to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the printed version, but to hear the words come out of the legend writer's mouth is far more appealing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Writing?

    Besides the posion ivy? I have to say is the odd jobs that he had before hitting it big time.


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

    I have not, this is the first one, and it won't be the last.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The persistence that Tabitha had on King, they are good for each other.


    Any additional comments?

    This book isn't mainly on teaching about writing, it is a book more about the writer but he does give amazingly helpful tips on what to do. This is a must read for King fans and those who wish to become writers themselves, learn and see how the legend went from regular joe to master of the craft.

    In the distant future, horrible dreams torment Admiral James T. Kirk, dreams prompted by his reading of Strangers from the Sky, a book about that historic first contact. He dreams of an alternate reality where he somehow changed the course of history, and destroyed the Federation before it began.

    Yuriko says: "Nice"
    "Entertaining!"

    Where does Star Trek: Strangers from the Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3 - I will hear it again, and again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Spock, because he's Spock, I can relate to being too logical. He helped the story's credit.


    What about George Takei and Leonard Nimoy ’s performance did you like?

    The way it felt like I was in the Enterprise and they were reading to me, it gives a thorough performance, almost like the show but in audio.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the end had a nice touch to the story, without spoilers, it did make you thing "was it"?


    Any additional comments?

    For the amount price listed, these are bargain brand, genuine show like entertainment. I will hear these over again.
