    James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    Ethan M. says: "Fun hard SF action with a blue collar bent"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Something really needs to happen. I guess it is suppose to be a character drama, but the characters aren't that interesting.


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

    James Corey is a good writer as the prose flows nicely. The problem is nothing seems to happen and there is no action.

    For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

    Where does Hunted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is excellent. It is action packed and rates as one of the best in the Iron Druid series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole story involves Atticus and crew sprinting across Europe.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Luke Daniels is one of the best I have ever heard. All his awards are justified.


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

    The ending is quite interesting.

    BUY ALL KEVIN HEARNE'S BOOKS. He is my favorite writer.

    Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up. But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

    Andrea says: "Absolutely loved it!"
    "Good, but not as good as the 1st two."

    Where does White Trash Zombie Apocalypse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is good and worth the listen, but I did not find it quite as entertaining as the 1st two books (which I loved). If you are a fan of the series you should buy this, but if you haven't read the other books start there.


    Have you listened to any of Allison McLemore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Allsion McLemore has a unique voice. I do not think she is the best reader I have ever heard, but does a good job in the White Trash Zombie series.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Great Story, compelling for all 19 hours.


    What other book might you compare NOS4A2 to and why?

    It is sort of like "It", but much better.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Mulgrew’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listen to a lot of books and KATE MULREW is the best I have ever heard.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

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

    The beginning of this book is very good. If you are interested in the events surrounding Kennedy's death, this book delivers it in an entertaining and factual way. I learned a lot.

    The problem is towards the middle of the book, it delves into this completely unrealistic love story and King's portrayal of women is less than top notch (to say the least).


    If you’ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

    This book is not as good as King's earlier work, but it is a different genre.

    Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    Many books written by women get all caught up in who is kissing who and the emotional boyfriend drama the main characters are feeling. This is NOT the case in this book. It is a wonderful fantasy that is not a boring teen melodrama.

    Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia. Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.

    She is pretty good as some of the southern accents seem difficult.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time, I would do it.


    Any additional comments?

    You should buy it. Definitely worth a credit.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

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

    The overall story is not bad, but it gets almost "preachy". We get it. Correia loves guns. Guns can solve any problem. The bigger the gun the better. Also, the American government is evil and out to get you.

    His portrayal of women is also cliche at best.

    On the other hand, Oliver Wyman is magnificent as a narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Larry Correia? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Like I said the story is not bad, but the politics become overwhelming.


    Do you think Monster Hunter International needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It already has 2 or 3.

Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword.
