    We all make bad decisions. It's part of being human. The resulting mistakes can be valuable, the story goes, because we learn from them. But do we? Historian Zachary Shore says no, not always, and he has a long list of examples to prove his point.

    Andy says: "helpful extension of the genre"

    Found this very interesting, smart people can make mistakes, but a wise person would learn from theirs.

    THE LAND OF PAINTED CAVES concludes the story of Ayla, her mate Jondalar, and their little daughter, Jonayla, taking readers on a journey of discovery and adventure as Ayla struggles to find a balance between her duties as a new mother and her training to become a Zelandoni - one of the Ninth Cave community's spiritual leaders and healers.

    eva says: "One word - Repetition"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was so looking forward to the final series of the Earth Children series only to be disappointed, it was so repetitive, rehashing what was in the previous books, why couldn't Ayla meet up with her son or the clan again. If your thinking about purchasing this book save your money.

    What else was disappointing about this book was the narrator, one point in the book she slipped into a cockney accent, it was only for a split second but was weird, I kept thinking she should be reading Enid Blyton series not these ones, please bring back Sandra Burr.

    A most disappointing book.

    Set in a world where some people are born with a Grace - a unique, sometimes uncanny, gift - this is the story of Katsa, whose Grace, demonstrated at an uncomfortably early age, is for killing. This makes her a perfect tool for her uncle, King Randa But Katsa chafes at the way she is being used - and even more at the injustices she sees around her.Then she meets Prince Po, who has a Grace to match hers...

    Kari says: "Outstanding first novel!"
    "Not Bad"
    Overall

    Just being new to Audiobooks, found this book very enlightening and a great book for those between the ages of 11 and perhaps 15, not quite on the same par as Harry Potter.

    To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare, woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point.

    Angie says: "I couldn't wait for the audio book"
    "Breaking Dawn"
    Overall

    By far the best out of all the Twilight series, you would believe that we actually live amongst vampires - no matter what our differences are, we can work together, seems to be the moral of this story.

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    Couldn't get into this book, but I would be interested in reading other reviews, may just change my mind about this book.

    This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, a librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36, and were married when Clare was 22 and Henry 30. Impossible but true, because Henry has Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his past, present, and future.

    Absolutely loved listening to this audiobook, entertaining and humorus, even though the main character was going from one time to another you could always stay on track, hope writer does a sequel re the daughter.
