    A sourcerer is born in Discworld: a wizard so powerful that he makes all other magicians look like a bunch of fools in pointy hats. Now, suddenly, Discworld is brought to the brink of an all-out thaumaturgical war. The only hope for peace is Rincewind, the failed magician who has a risky plan to save the world. He enlists the help of several odd new characters, including Conina the barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the Destroyer, and a yuppie genie who sees lamps as a growth industry.

    Melisa says: "Discworld fans will love it!"
    "A good listen if you enjoy Pratchett"
    Overall

    Rincewind is at it again and the Luggage tags along. This is a good book and the reader does a good job with it. However, the recording has a tinny sound, even when the narrator isn't talking directly to the reader. Pratchett has a very fine sense of humor and sometimes strange wit.

  • Explosive Eighteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    HappyMom says: "to quote Lula 'I really expected a better story'"
    "Another great Plum novel!"

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Grandma Mazure (sp?); she is hilarious.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lorelei King does a great job voicing each of the characters individually. There is never any confusion over who is talking and she breathes life into all of them.

  • Last Car to Elysian Fields

    Story
    (152)

    When Dave Robicheaux, learns that an old friend, Father Jimmie Dolan has been the victim of a particularly brutal assault, he returns to New Orleans to investigate, if only unofficially.

    Joseph says: "Another winner."
    "Hard to listen to."
    Overall

    While the story seems to be Burke at his best, it is hard to listen to this Hammer read. I definitely prefer Will Patton's readings of previous Burke novels. I find it hard to understand Hammer a lot of the time and the characters voices seem to run together. Hammer seems to be trying way too hard to sound Cajun. I hope the next one is better.
