    A master craftsman, Don Lark could fix everything except what mattered, his own soul. After tragedy claimed the one thing he loved, he began looking for dilapidated houses to buy, renovate, and resell at a profit, giving these empty shells the second chance at life he denied himself.

    I find that I either love or hate Orson Scott Card's work. This was definitely one I loved along with Lost Boys and Enchantment. It was amazingly involving and I fell in love with the characters.

  • Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict

    Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict tells the parallel story of Jane Mansfield, a gentleman's daughter from Regency England who inexplicably awakens in Courtney's overly wired and morally confused modern L.A. life. For Jane, the modern world is not wholly disagreeable. She relishes the privacy, independence, even the power to earn her own money. But how is she to fathom her employer's incomprehensible dictates about "syncing a BlackBerry"?

    Joseph R says: "Rude Awakenings and Eye Opening"
    "A mix of Jane Austen and time travel"
    Overall

    I'm a sucker for a well-executed anachronistic book and this one definitely fits that description. I love Jane Austen's books and the feel of this book is very similar while adding in a modern twist. I really loved this book. I liked Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict as well, but I think this is the better of the two books.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    I don't normally like abridgements, but this was really well done. This story follows Piemur, a young apprentice of the Harper hall. I love the way Anne McCaffrey interweaves her stories. They are very good even if you have never read her books before, but as you read her books, you get pulled into the lives of the characters and when you find a character you had read about earlier in a new book, it is like meeting an old friend.

    To slay the deadly Thread, the people of Pern regain contact with dolphins that met the earliest settlers. A dragon rider and a boy join with the dolphins to help settle the remaining parts of Pern.

    Alan says: "An Excellent Tale"
    "Wonderful book"
    Overall

    I'm listening to this book for about the tenth time. I love how the author brings elements of other stories into each book and yet makes the book stand alone. I'm a dolphin lover, so I could really relate.
