    Hiccup is lost in the Library Labyrinth and the Driller-Dragons, Madguts and Murderous, are on the prowl. Hiccup's birthday is not going to be the quiet affair he hoped for.... This book also contains a comprehensive Dragonese Dictionary for those who'd like to dragon-whisper themselves.

    Story

    My 9 year old daughter will not stop listening to these audiobooks. This one has been listened to four times and she STILL wants to hear it. David Tennant does a remarkable job narrating a superb fantasy story of Cowells. I would recommend this audiobook and in fact any of the How to Train your Dragon Books to everyone.

    Story

    It puts you right to sleep guaranteed. Not to say it isn't interesting. It is, especially if you happen to be a WWII buff like me. However, it IS looooooong and oftentimes difficult to follow with the appropriately British use of syntax and language. All that sad, it still provides a most interesting perspective on WWII from the British role, specifically Churchill.

    Two men possess vital information on Russia's Star Wars missile defense system. One of them is Cardinal -- America's highest agent in the Kremlin -- and he's about to be terminated by the KGB. The other one is the American who can save Cardinal and lead the world to the brink of peace . . . or war. Here is author Tom Clancy's heart-stopping masterpiece -- a riveting novel about one of the most intriguing issues of our time.

    Story

    The only complaint I have for this book is the narrator. He needs to take lessons from Lou Diamond Phillips, the narrator for "Threat Vector". Michael Prichard read in a dull steady rhyme, monotone that would put me to sleep if I listened to anymore than three pages at a time.

    Island of the Blue Dolphins is the remarkable story of a strange and beautiful Indian girl who lives a serene and courageous life as the solitary survivor on an island off the California coast. Left behind when the rest of her tribe fled, she waits, year after year, for a ship to come for her. She fights for her very survival, building a shelter, hunting for food, and making weapons to stave off her enemies, the wild dogs who took her brother.

    Story

    The reader is very dry and reads in a very monotone voice. It should be like a story being told rather than a book being read.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Michael says: "Obama Fans Aren't Going to Like This Book!"
    "Outstanding! He really is an amateur"

    Well worth the read if you want to know why our country is in such trouble right now. With leaders like Barak, who needs enemies.

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer, and the greatest viking hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a hero. Hiccup must battle Berserks, dodge Scarers, complete the Impossible Task and save Fishlegs from being fed to the Beast! And all while being hunted down by an old enemy with a dark secret about the Lost Throne. What's a hero to do?
