    Overall

    I've been listening to the Dresden Files back to back for seven books now and I continue to enjoy Masters' narration and Butcher's writing. If I had any complaint with the first books it'd only be the too far over-the-top Warden Morgan whose disdain for Harry goes beyond common sense and the confusing tension between our protagonist and Karrin Murphy whose attitude toward Harry warrants a punch to the teeth more than a kiss. With Karrin on vacation for this book and Morgan seeming to fall into line during Dead Beat this becomes one of the most enjoyable in the series. Imaginative, humorous, over-the-top with just the right amount of tension, Dead Beat is highly recommended.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Overall

    After a fantastic first book, the second was a disappointment. This entry is bleak, slow paced and meandered along without purpose until I finally gave up on it three quarters of the way through. If you liked the original book, do yourself a favor and stay away from the second and third entries in the series.

    Story

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Overall

    Wow, what could have been a really great book is ruined by the incredibly slow pace. I like some detail and description, but this borders on silly. Every minute detail of the characters from the moment they wake up and brush their teeth to their cab ride home is told in excruciating detail. Couldn't make it through part one of two. If you are still interested, do youself a favor and listen the abridged version.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    "Not for Kids"
    Overall

    Putting aside all the regilious debate, I was confused after reading this book how this is considered appropriate for childen. Between the mean spirited parent characters, the kidnapping torture and death inflicted upon the children in the story, and the adult subtext, I guess I got something different than I expected here - which was a horrible, dark little story of the main characters journey. Didn't enjoy this one.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    I've not written a review before but felt compelled to chime in and give Neverwhere 5 stars. A very enjoyable and imaginative tale. I haven't enjoyed anything quite this much since The Dark Tower. Gaiman did an excellent job not only with the book itself, but did an amazing job narrating this highly recommended book.
