    New York Times best seller and Whitebread Book of the Year, Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney's new translation of Beowulf comes to life in this gripping audio. Heaney's performance reminds us that Beowulf, written near the turn of another millennium, was intended to be heard not read.

    I got this for a school report and it was so much better to listen to it then read it. Seamus Heaney has a great voice for the part and was able to make even the parts where they are just listing Danish kings interesting.

    In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a nave young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry.

    Story

    This is a excellent audiobook. I found the mix of 19th century pomp and stuffy-ness to mix great with a blood and guts, Kung Foo, Zombie story. The dark humor is superbly done and the narration by Katherine Kellgren is possibly the best I have ever heard. I am definitely going to have to get the sequal next time I have a credit to spare.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    Justin says: "Kinda boring, mostly tedious, and frustrating"
    "Really Good"
    Overall

    He is a little light on discription and a little heavy on drawn out space battles but his premise is fantastic. The level of real life physics he brings to the story adds a level of depth lost in a lot of the adventure sci-fi genre. The narrator is amazing as well.

    I really liked this book it was very suspenseful but in a fun way. The story sucks you in and really makes you care for the people. The narator also has the perfect voice for the part.
