  • The Rook: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Daniel O'Malley
    • Narrated By Susan Duerden
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Myfanwy Thomas awakes in a London park surrounded by dead bodies. With her memory gone, her only hope of survival is to trust the instructions left in her pocket by her former self. She quickly learns that she is a Rook, a high-level operative in a secret agency that protects the world from supernatural threats. But there is a mole inside the organization - and this person wants her dead.

    Ethan M. says: "Harry Dresden meets English bureaucracy"
    "Pure fun"
    Would you listen to The Rook again? Why?

    Very seldom am I tempted to listen to a story again. Though I know the second time, when enough time has elapsed, can be pretty good. Rook would be on the list for consideration, though next time I may read it. I was not as impressed by the delivery of the reader.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the interesting world the author created, and the uniqueness of the superhero like characters.

    What three words best describe Susan Duerden’s performance?

    reading grocery list

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the very beginning, surrounded by bodies and no memory. Fun and gripping.

  • Ex-Communication

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Peter Clines
    • Narrated By Jay Snyder, Khristine Hvam, Mark Boyett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they’ve created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks.

    Lore says: "Corpse Girl for the win!"
    "A story about Superheros and Zombies"

    I like Walking Dead, I thought World War Z was a fun zombie book (and the only zombie book i've bothered reading outside of this series). Most of the time I spend On Stephen King or maybe those Prey series.

    Yet Peter Clines hooked me with 14, so I gave Ex heroes a chance. . and loved it. Ex Communication is the third in the series. . and for a world overrun with the undead (who left is there to fight) this stories setup. . .actually began in the previous book. It all comes together, is well done. . .and gives us a deeper look at one super character we kind of thought left us too soon

    There were a few glitches when I started, like sometimes the girl was read by a girl and sometimes a boy. . but I think they fixed it. I ate through this book in record time. Its just cool, clean, fun.

    Now if only we could return to the world of 14. . .is there any stories there left to tell?

  • Neverwhere

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Neil Gaiman
    • Narrated By Neil Gaiman
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "Addicted to Gaiman"

    I started with American Gods. It was sometime until I read/listened to graveyard book, and by then the ball was rolling. Neverwhere is my 3rd Gaiman book, and I loved it.

    The story has it all, a touch of fantasy laid onto our world. A little bit of london. .beasts and warriors all right beneath the service of our everyday lives.
