    Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

    What did you love best about Alice in Wonderland?

    The imagination and language blew me away.


    What other book might you compare Alice in Wonderland to and why?

    Through the Looking Glass, though they're by the same author.


    Have you listened to any of B. J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not as good, in comparison to Benjamin Button, which was by far a better performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Curiousity Killed the Cat

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    If you could sum up A Clash of Kings in three words, what would they be?

    Tyrion, the Halfman!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Clash of Kings?

    The Battle of King's Landing


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    I love his manner and tone he gives, and his love and life of each performance.


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

    Laugh, usually at funny lines or at ironic parts.


    Any additional comments?

    An epic tale of revelry, vengeance, warfare, deceit, power, and death. This book starts seconds after the first, immediately driving the reader back into the Song of Ice and Fire mythos that the first book delivered. Overall, I felt the book was written very well. George R.R. Martin loves to end each chapter on a cliffhanger, and loves to drive his audience to different ends of the book. We get to learn more about the pasts of several characters in the Game of Thrones that we hadn't known about prior, see the cunning wit of Tyrion, or the honor-bound Jon, or new Mother of Dragons. We even get to see through Theon (who I have no care for) and a new character to boot. While I didn't find it as overwhelmingly grand and impeccably told as the first book, I found this one to be a different creature all together, and it told a tale worth telling. There are clear points of displeasure that I found in the book, like the overabundance of meaningless sex scenes, dreams, and food descriptions, it still didn't deter the overall story and the grand scheme of things. Just little notes. Some of the dreams placed real highly in the point of the book, such as the direwolve dreams, or Tyrion and Catelyn's recounts of past times. I would recommend to any that like mediaeval fantasy and adventure stories, though I will account that this novel is almost no good without its companion of the first, and could clearly not be a standalone novel. If one was willing to follow the full of the adventure, that it would be worth reading it at least once.

    Benjamin Button was literally born an old man. He lived a backwards life, for his body grew younger as the years passed him by. Come and listen to the original, unabridged story by F. Scott Fitzgerald which inspired the movie.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to a fantasy reader, but only if they truly care about the series. It's not worth picking up outside of the story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less repetition of useless details, and much less about Oba, the Oaf. His character is terrible, and the story drives a stake in itself. I got very tired of hearing invincible.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Simple and kind voice. A little monotone, but it was fine.


    Did The Pillars of Creation inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?
