    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    Story

    It was difficult to start because it sounded like it would be only appeal to junior high kids. But it turned out to be one of those teen books that adults can enjoy too. After the author introduces the characters and starts the main part of the story, it becomes very entertaining. Also, the books get better as you go on in the series because there is more drama. There is humor in this book; it isn't nearly as dark as the Hunger Games.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    I am glad I read the last book. But I must say I did not like the very last part of the ending. Just beware...this isn't the "everybody is happy" type of feeling you got after the last Harry Potter series.

    Gipsy's Acre was a truly beautiful place, with views of the sea, and in Michael Rogers it stirred a childlike fantasy. There, among the dark fir trees, he planned to build a house, find a girl, and live happily ever after. Yet, as he left the village, a shadow of menace hung over the land--for this was the place where accidents happened.

    Story

    I have finished all of the Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple books and am now going through all the novels that stand alone. This novel was not one of her best but I do not regret listening to it. It was actually pretty interesting, but having listened to so many excellent works of hers, a work that is only just good pales by comparison. (Sorry for the poor grammar; I'm too tired to fix it.)

    Sophia Leonides and Charles Hayward fall in love in Egypt during World War II, and vow to meet up again in England. After the war ends, Charles fears their reunion may be interrupted when he sees an obituary for Sophia's grandfather, Aristide, in the newspaper. The death turns out to be anything but ordinary - the rich old man's demise is mired in mysterious circumstances.

    I'm very biased as I absolutely love Agatha Christie, but this one will not disappoint. There are very few Christie mysteries that I wouldn't rate a 5 star. The only one so far that I have only enjoyed partially is The Big Four.

    For an instant, the two trains ran side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth McGillicuddy witnessed a murder. She saw the body crumple. Then the other train drew away. Everyone but Miss Jane Marple was willing to dismiss her friend's distraught report. Diligently studying train routes, timetables, and tracks, Miss Marple imagines where the body might be. Her detective genius includes playing the little-old-lady card and, ultimately, winning the challenge of wits.

    Story

    The narrator sounds like an elderly British woman, probably because Miss Marple is an elderly British woman. When I first listened to it, I didn't think I would like her but I soon grew accustomed to her and she is good at changing character.
