    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    It felt a little slow to start, but once I got a couple of hours into it I really started enjoying it. It combines a bit of mystery/suspense/action with fairly modern day technical themes. I'd recommend it to someone who likes the genre, and it's a GREAT value for only one credit.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    What did you love best about The Name of the Wind?

    What attracted me to this title was the length of it for the value (27 hours for one credit? I'm there!). I like the descriptiveness of the prose; it helps a lot with visualizing the environment and identifying with the perceptions of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure yet - still listening to it (about halfway through).


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

    I have not listened to any of this narrator's performances before. He does a good job, though I've heard better. My criteria for good narration is whether I can identify the character speaking without much effort, and based on that, he's one of the better ones I've listened to.


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

    Several parts of it made me laugh out loud, though it's not a comedy.


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely buy the second book in the series!

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Where does Hounded rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the best. I love a good series, though I sometimes have trouble getting into a book if the setting is unfamiliar to me. The author overcame that fairly quickly by making the opening chapter very interesting.

    I would definitely recommend to others who enjoy this genre.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The performance was one of the best ones I've listened to. It was very easy to identify the different characters based on listening to the narrator's voice. This makes it an
