Interesting concept. I liked it enough to finish listening to it and ended in a place that suggests a sequel. Nothing terribly new or exciting for the fantasy reader. Might be a fun story for the fans of "Ann of Green Gables" or "Sara, Plain and Tall"
I liked it. Kept me listening. First person narrative from an elite hit man. The author stretches believability in more than a few places and probably could have wrapped it up sooner, but all and all I think it’s worth a listen.
Wildly raunchy and unbelievable tales of a globetrotting life working on an oil drill rig made believable by the master story telling skills of Paul Carter. I loved every minute of it.
Imagine that you are an Alien race trying to make first contact with earth but are a little worried about the bad wrap you’ve been getting in the movies. What do you do? You get yourself a Hollywood agent. John Scalzi does a wonderful job in this absurdly funny caper. Original, well narrated and a lot of fun.
This is an amusingly clever tale of online deity shopping gone wrong. In an attempt to improve their situation Phil and Teri sign up as the newest followers of Lucky, a minor god of fortune. Lucky fails to tell the young couple about his baggage, mainly a former girlfriend and goddess of misery who is stalking him and the god of wrath and destruction that is trying to poach and eat Lucky’s followers in a misguided game of one-upmanship. It’s original, funny and well written.
I really like the idea of an overweight vampire. It's fresh and new and it promises something different. Alhough it was original it really didn't take off. Wasn't as clever as I hoped it would and it falls a little flat. No believability in dialog or characters either. There were some great ideas, but all and all it reminds me of a rough draft. In different hands this story really could have turned out well.
Pulitzer Prize winning author Rick Bragg is a wizard with words. The Prince of Frogtown is one of several books he wrote about his family and life growing up dirt poor in the rural south in the 50's and 60's. Author narrated, I was mesmerized by his voice. The slow southern drawl and apt description of life in a mill town was hypnotic. Totally creditworthy.
Dark magic. Set in England in a secret witch society run but "white" witches. The main character, Nathan Edge is a mix of half white and half black witch blood. His mother forced to kill herself and his father on the run, Nathan's mixed parentage makes him an outcast of sorts, mistreated and openly abused by the witch council. The abuse is very graphic and might put some readers off. The ending is rather abrupt, but I'm looking forward to the next installment.
This is a delightfully funny tale about a former super villain and super genius, Emperor Mollusk, who is so incredibly brilliant, he becomes bored and creates dooms day inventions that he then must save the earth from. Very entertaining. Great narration. The story wandered a little but still delivered a great listen.
So, this story is about a homicide detective that can conjure demons. Within the first three chapters the lead character conjures a demon that vows to flay the skin from her bones. So she does what all respectable homicide detectives do; she has sex with it with in minutes of their first meeting. Additionally, the author needs to get a thesaurus so she can look up another adjective other than "f**king" . All of the characters use it constantly in both dialog and prose like it's required. So if you enjoy the work f**k, stories that lack believability, or soft core porn then this is your book. I am so glad I bought this one as a daily deal.
