    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    I was captured right from the start. This is a really great story with vivid characters. I would have enjoyed reading it but the narrator takes this book and makes listening the ultimate audible experience!

    Ikey Solomon....


    Who was the most memorable character of The Potato Factory and why?

    Mary


    Any additional comments?

    Dont miss this one. Even if it is not what you would normally listen to....I promise you will be entertained and swept away. The second in this series is just as good!

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."

    Memory Of Light was great! The ending of this great series brought every thing together. It was surprising, fast paced and moving! Robert Jordan did a great job starting and Brandon Sanderson did a great job at ending this epic series!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Where does Tricked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fun, fun,fun! For a fun listen, this is it!


    What other book might you compare Tricked to and why?

    None....it is that different! Did I already say fun?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any part with Oberon!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oberon....his simple way of viewing the world and love of meat and girl poodles. I am glad to see our main characters moving into a more romantic relationship!


    Any additional comments?

    I get in the mood for something that is less intense and the Iron Druid series does this! The narrator is wonderful!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really like the story but the narration is painful to listen to. Does fine with any part except when actually reading what the characters say. Sounds like they all talk with same exact halting robotic voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Richard because of his continuing discovery about himself which is the opposite of kalins self assurance!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sam Tsoutsouvas’s performances?

    Not In a million years.


    Could you see Wizard's First Rule being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Think it would be a better series on tv. No clue on who would play the parts.


    Any additional comments?

    This series need a better narrators And a do over for audio. I will recommend it for reading but warn everyone on the audio version!
