    Two brothers. One, top FBI Agent Aloysius Pendergast. The other, Diogenes, a brilliant and twisted criminal. An undying hatred between them. Now, a perfect crime. And the ultimate challenge: Stop me if you can.

    If you could sum up Dance of Death in three words, what would they be?

    Familiar, Fun, Mystery


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The Character of Pendergast, finally meets his match with his brother which is amazing. The part that gets repetitive is that this story still follows the same story. It is a good addition for those who are familiar with the Pendergast universe but it is starting to get old.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Loved the performance by Scott Brick. He is one of my favorites, without him I don't think these books would be as good.

    Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene - it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Neuromancer to be better than the print version?

    I don't know why I have only now found this book. I have been a long time lover of sci-fi but this book blew me away. I grew up playing Shadow Run, I'm not talking about the video game either. I played the paper and dice RPG. I loved the world and the characters especially the Matrix. I can't believe that with all that I never knew about William Gibson. I am glad I found it now though. This book is a must read for any lover of Sci-Fi or Cyberpunk. William Gibson is truly a visionary without him I believe the world of Cyber Space would be very different. Pick this book up. Read it. Then Read it again. It is that good.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Jean says: "Spies and a counter espionage"
    "Another Great Tom Clancy book"

    What did you love best about Threat Vector?

    This book has all that we have come to expect from Tom Clancy with a new twist. A journey into cyber warfare. I loved it. It was easy to follow and very accurate. Just like Tom Clancy should be. I am glad to see all the familiar faces again. It doesn't dissappoint

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Dance with Dragons to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but I always enjoy the effort put in by the audio book reader. Its like listening to a performance.


    Would you be willing to try another book from George R. R. Martin? Why or why not?

    I will finish this series but I don't think that I will read anything else by George R. R. Martin. He writes in a very realistic style but that is not the reason that I read books. I read them to escape reality. I would like for there to be at least 1 character that is able to come out on top. That isn't the case with Martin, every character he writes gets never is able to have a good life. They get betrayed or killed or have some other tragedy strike them. It gets to the point where it is almost predictable. Chances are if Martin is writing about someone from their point of view, that means that this character is doomed to some sort of tragedy.


    Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is great


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It frustrated me that no ones life ever works out.
