    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Sci Fi writers and people who study the human condition with everything that makes us awful.


    What could M. John Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Developed the world a bit more so I could try to find something to latch onto. The characters were not strong enough to do that.


    What about Julian Elfer???s performance did you like?

    He has a good ability to do male and female characters. He was also easy to understand.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment; like others I picked this book based on Gaiman's recommendation and found it lacking.


    Any additional comments?

    I could see how things were going to connect between the three main characters within the first hour or so and there wasn't much else to look forward to from that point on.

    Benny Imura and his friends have found the jet and Sanctuary - but neither is what they expected. Instead of a refuge, Sanctuary is a hospice, and the soldiers who flew the plane seem to be little more than bureaucrats who have given up hope for humanity's future. With Chong hovering between life and death, clinging to his humanity by a thread, Benny makes a startling discovery: a scientist may have discovered a cure for the zombie plague. Desperate to save Chong, Benny and his friends mount a search and rescue mission. But they're not the only ones on the hunt.

    I gave it 3 instead of 4 stars because for some reason the teenage angst bled through more in this book than in the last book. It was understandable but it made it difficult for me to get through at times.

    In this sweeping, threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars, mankind is unwittingly infected by a millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person’s so-called junk DNA becomes activated. Depending on their racial and ethnic heritage, they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the "others" that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren’t your usual vampires and werewolves - it goes much deeper than that.

    the voice acting can take awhile to get used to and it's not very good but the story elevates the book to a good rating

    Marsalis is one of a new breed...literally. Genetically engineered by the U.S. government to embody the naked aggression and primal survival skills that centuries of civilization have erased from humankind, Thirteens were intended to be the ultimate military fighting force. The project was scuttled, however, when a fearful public branded the supersoldiers dangerous mutants, dooming the Thirteens to forced exile on Earth's distant, desolate Mars colony. But Marsalis found a way to slip back.

    What made the experience of listening to Thirteen the most enjoyable?

    the intricate world building


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was similar in darkness to the Kovach series but while maintaining a certain level of hope.


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

    his curses.....the man knows how to deliver curse words.


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

    I laughed and cried actually


    Any additional comments?

    If you like his other books; you'll like this one

    Zero Tolerance picks up a few weeks after the close of Maberry’s action-thriller Patient Zero. Dropping back into the world of former Baltimore cop Joe Ledger, the Department of Military Sciences, and flesh-eating zombies, fans of the series will finally see the tying up of a few loose ends.

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

    I'd recommend it to fans of the Joe Ledger series but it is too short to waste a credit on.


    What about Ray Porter???s performance did you like?

    Ray's performance was amazing as usual.

    The cozy little town of Pine Deep buried the horrors of its past a long time ago. Thirty years have gone by since the darkness descended and the Black Harvest began, a time when a serial killer sheared a bloody swath through the quiet Pennsylvania village. The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”

    What did you like best about Ghost Road Blues? What did you like least?

    The horror element of the story can be campy at times but it's actually very good. What surprised me though was how the book ended. It wasn't a cliff-hanger but many of the characters in the story, and there are a few, didn't have any real conclusion. The whole book felt like a setup for the sequel which is something that one usually feels while reading the second book.

    Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate betrayal. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Crown, nothing will ever be the same between them.

    Mitch says: "Great Ending"
    "The best in the series!"
    Overall

    I finally finished listening to Last Sacrifice. I thought it was the best book in the series! Emily Shaffer did a great job narrating the story and giving different voices/accents to the many characters in the book. The music and sound effects were a nice touch as well.

    Although Richelle Mead tied up the major loose ends of the series, there were a few minor details left unfinished???however, I have a feeling they will be resolved in her spin-off series coming out next summer!

    This book was bittersweet, but absolutely brilliant. I hope you enjoy [listening to/reading] it as much as I did!

    It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians - including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian!

    A User says: "Great Book!"
    "Frosty!"
    Overall

    I am really enjoying the Vampire Academy series. This is the 2nd book and it's better written than the first one. (The first book confused me and had no introductions or background to the story)

    The narrator of this book gave Rose a whiny voice which was annoying at first, but then I got used to her narrating.

    Overall, I liked the story and am really liking the series.
