    Lirael has never felt like a true daughter of the Clayr. Abandoned by her mother, ignorant of her father's identity, Lirael resembles no one else in her large extended family living in the Clayr's glacier. She doesn't even have the Sight, the ability to See into the present and possibly futures, that is the very birthright of the Clayr.

    Story

    I love Tim Curry, really I do, but hearing him read from a female protagonist's point of view was almost more than I could bear. The story is fascinating, well paced, and unfolds quite nicely. The characters were likable and flawed just enough to make them real but not so much that it was frustrating or distracting.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" is brilliant. The characters, the plot, the language, all of it is executed with perfection. I listened to two different performances of this story and was very impressed with this version. The readers made an already capturing story more engaging.

    A mysterious island, shrouded in fear, evil, and darkness. Here the amoral General Zaroff hunts. And what, you ask, is the most dangerous game? It is the manner and substance of his nightly killings.

    What did you love best about The Most Dangerous Game?

    I purchased this audio book to play for my 9th grade English course and was not disappointed. The students were engaged (which is saying something), and I did not grimace at the reading once. I am a picky listener; I will stop listening to a story that I like if I do not enjoy the reader. B.J.Harrison was interesting and dynamic. He had a wonderful hold on the characters and brought them to life. Bravo.
