    Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. The recording couldn't hold my attention. I kept finding myself drifting off. It's basically the summation of The Colbert Report but way too long with no audience feed-back to keep Stephen lively. It's just repetitive conservative parody/bashing the whole time and it gets old after a bit. I kind of wish I used my credit to by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter instead. I'll stick to watching the TV show instead.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Would you listen to Cold Days again? Why?

    I actually did listen to Cold Days twice. Jim Butcher always has those tiny details that you might miss on the first go that turn out to be significant later. Listening it the second time was even better than the first!


    Any additional comments?

    I literally couldn't stop the recording until the end. I had to finish it. This is a great addition to the series. The ending sets up nicely for the next book, which I'll be anxiously waiting for. I just hope it doesn’t take too long. James Marsters, as always, does a fantastic job with the character voices. I nearly spit my soda out when I heard him do a female pixie voice, but he pulled it off.

  • Gabriel's Inferno

    Story

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Would you try another book from Sylvain Reynard and/or John Morgan?

    If all her book are this long and pretentious, then no!


    What was most disappointing about Sylvain Reynard’s story?

    It's Twilight minus sparkling vampires. The two main characters are so very unreal. Juliana is a weak, niave, throws fits when men can't read her mind, and focuses on making Gabriel the love of her life, rather than her expensive education. Gabriel is a popmus, designer label stamped ass who thinks worldy women are non-persons to be used for sex only and hates himself for having a lebito. He puts Juliana on a pedestal for her "purity and innocence" and is lothed to corrupt her with his beastly ways. Juliana is a fragile simp who is scarred for life because her ex-boyfriend likes Nine Inch Nails and said he wanted to f**k her like an animal. I want to vommit.


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

    I would have skipped pages and pages of silly internal dialog on how perfect Gabriel's voice and eyes are and how angelic Juliana is. Unfortunately, skipping is a little hard for an audio book.


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

    Nausea


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time. I'm glad I only spent 5 dollars.

    Best-selling author and master storyteller Neil Gaiman here presents a breathtaking collection of tales that will chill or amuse readers and that always embrace the unexpected.

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

    The stories and narration by Niel Gaiman are, as always, beyond fantastic, but you would be better off buying "Fragile Things" which contains all the good short stories from M is for Magic and more.


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

    I like Mr. Gaiman's short stories, especially October in the Chair. I find them all delightful.
