    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    If you could sum up And the Mountains Echoed in three words, what would they be?


    Any additional comments?

    What a treat to hear this story through Khaled Hosseini's own voice. This book follows the same great writing style and character development that I have come to love in Hosseini's other works. I am sad it is over and am already missing the characters.

  • A Feast for Crows: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 4

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Having listened to the first 3 books of this very lengthy series I am invested. Until now I have been incredibly impressed with Roy Dotrice's ability to give life to each character through voice. I have just started the 4th book and do not think I can continue listening. The change in the voices of the characters I have come to know so extremely well is utterly disappointing and is ruining the experience. Secondly the change in pronunciation of names and towns is not only confusing but frustrating. I think I am better off picking up these books and reading the rest of the series myself so I can stay true to the characters I know and stop try to correct Roy's new performance of the series. I am at least relieved to know that there was about 7 years between his performance of the first 3 books and the last 2. I wish he had taken the time to relearn the characters that he spent so many hours introducing us to previously.

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Would you listen to A Storm of Swords again? Why?

    Great book, the series keeps getting better!


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    Roy Dotrice is fantastic!! He does a great job individualizing the characters with different voices. His narration is one of my favorite parts of listening to this book!
