  • The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Rick Riordan
    • Narrated By Jesse Bernstein
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

    Selected this book based on the trailers of the up and coming movie. I was not disappointed. the book is fast paced adventure that does not bore you. It is filled with light-hearted humor. And the characters are likable and easy to relate to. Percy is a down-to- Earth typical teenager with the kinds of problems that most of us can understand, and then a few more. Loved the book so much i have moved into the rest of the series with wild abandon. The best so far since Harry Potter or Artemis Fowl

  • Pawn of Prophecy: The Belgariad, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By David Eddings
    • Narrated By Cameron Beierle

    Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

    "My Favorite Favorite"
    What made the experience of listening to Pawn of Prophecy the most enjoyable?

    If Audio Books were Quality Street Chocolates then this would be my favorite favorite. A book originally given to me a gift. I did not read it for several years because of the prologue. When I did give it a chance finally, could not put it down. When through the rest of the 10 books faster than I have read anything other than Lord of the rings.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Garion. every time he thinks " Why me?" I think been there, done that!. A character you can relate to, not only as a person, but in terms of the kind of experiences he goes through.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have to pick one? Not possible there are so many. Garion in trouble, the homeliness of Aunt Pols Kitchen. The agony of leaving his childhood home. There are just so many I enjoyed.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not merely a legend, a Myth in the making.

    Any additional comments?

    Hands down recommend the book and the series to any fantasy fan. Dont ask for a comparison, there is nothing quite like it out there. This ones unique!
