    Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.

    Story

    Dick Hill's interpretation of the characters in "Black Ice" truly enriches the story. The story is quite good on it's own but the narration takes it to a much higher level. Also, the pacing is great. So, very, very good direction, too. I will definitely look for more audio books narrated by Mr. Hill.

    After his experiences as a young naval officer in battles off Okinawa, Philip Bowman returns to America and finds a position as a book editor. It is a time when publishing is still largely a private affair - a scattered family of small houses here and in Europe - a time of gatherings in fabled apartments and conversations that continue long into the night. In this world of dinners, deals, and literary careers, Bowman finds he fits in perfectly. But despite his success, love eludes him.

    I am sorry to give this book so few stars. It may be a great book. I don't know. I've given it an hour and I am bored. I just don't want to stick with it.

    It is the summer of 1950 and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia's family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.

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

    Jayne Entwistle's portrayal of the main character was spot on. Her voice really took on the character of the 12 year old girl. Just brilliant!

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is difficult to choose just one character of this series as a favorite. I like Arya's youthful courage, Bran's developing awareness of his abilities, and Jon Snow's heroism. Oh, Daenerys is a great, strong, female courage. Oh, and Tyrion!!! Great combination of morality and pragmatism. So, there you go, can't just choose one.


    Which character – as performed by Roy Dotrice – was your favorite?

    Hmmm.... All Mr. Dotrice's male characterizations are fabulous. I am going to say Tyrion is my favorite followed by Jon Snow and Varys.


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

    You may want to listen to this all in one sitting but it would be difficult and I would recommend against it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wonder if the children will ever achieve adulthood in this series.
