    "A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster. You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell...."

    Amazon Customer says: "Chris Patton did a wonderful job"
    "Great adaptation of a classic"
    Overall

    This book is a great version of Beauty and the Beast set in modern time. Chat rooms and hints at fairy tales along with teenage life brings a new flare to this classic tale.

    Will is a young American ad executive in Paris. Except his agency is a front for the CIA. It's 1959 and the Cold War is going strong. But Will doesn't think he's a warrior-he's just a good-hearted Detroit ad guy who can't seem to figure out Parisian girls. Zoya is a beautiful young woman wandering les boulevards, sad-eyed, and coming off a bad breakup. In fact, she impaled her ex on a spike. Zoya, it turns out, has been a beautiful young woman for hundreds of years; she and her far more traditionally witchy-looking companion, Elga, have been thriving unnoticed in the bloody froth of Europe's wars.

    What did you like best about Babayaga? What did you like least?

    I "read" this for my book club with bn and it was a good read. I'm very glad that I purchased the audio book, otherwise this story could have gotten away from me. The story is winding in some places and the narrator did a weird whispery voice for Zoya, but the guy voices were really good and I was quite amused by the character of Brandon.
    I least liked the "witches songs" as they confused me and I lost the thread of what was going on in the story through that bit, but they weren't overtly long and didn't ruin the story.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Where does And One Last Thing... rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This short yet sweet story ranks high in my collection, mostly because the narrator brings the story to life.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This story wouldn't be the same without the narrator. Sure the story is great, but seriously...Amanda Ronconi just gets it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story makes me laugh.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Would you listen to Ender's Shadow again? Why?

    Yes, I've listened to Ender's Game already, and after listening to Ender's Shadow, I can really see different sides of the characters that I hadn't seen in Ender's Game. Now I need to re read Ender's Game and then give another listen to Ender's Shadow.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrators are just great, emotions and everything. It's like watching a movie with your eyes closed.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    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.

    Great story, but definitely preview before you buy....I really don't care to listen to this narrator for too long
