  • Touch of Frost: Mythos Academy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Jennifer Estep
    • Narrated By Tara Sands
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy - a school of myths, magic, and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things.

    "Repetitive with terrible narration."
    Would you try another book from Jennifer Estep and/or Tara Sands?

    I don't believe I would read another book by either. The narrator was terrible and annoying to say the least with a whiny tone and repeated the same up and down pitch of every single line she spoke through the entire book. The author had a great concept, great imagery and compelling story. The problem was the execution. I actually found it difficult to finish the book. The repetition of key points (no spoiler examples) made it not only annoying to hear them for the 10th to 15th time they were mentioned but also made it painfully obvious as to where the book was going as contrast to the points stressed throughout the entire book. Such as that she was new with no friends at the Academy. She must have said this 10 times per chapter. I will not be finishing the series. I also feel as if there was a contradiction between making Gwendolyn smart yet stupid at the same time. Things that were plainly obvious she repeatedly skipped over that should have been even her general knowledge not just the reader.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the concept and lore of the story. Although the love story was a bit dry and boring the mystery was enough to keep the focus no matter how predictable.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was just terrible in every way. I apologize I can't say it better but she was just not suited to narrate this peticular title.

  • Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Dinesh D’Souza
    • Narrated By David Cochran Heath
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In his controversial New York Times best seller, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza answered the question on everyone’s mind: why is President Obama hell-bent on seeing America fail? The reason, D’Souza explained, is Obama’s fervent anticolonial ideology. Here, in his blockbuster follow-up, Obama’s America, D’Souza shows how President Obama is applying his anticolonial ideology to unmake America and turn it into a country our founders would hardly recognize.

    STORK says: "Obama was not ready for Prime Time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I have already recommended it to everyone I know. There are a few stretches in the association of the facts to the theory but overall it makes so much more sense then other theories about Obama and why he is such a failure. I only wish that more of America listened and understood before they had re-elected him. Impeachment?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Obama’s America?

    Has really given me the ability to look in the right place for information now.

    Have you listened to any of David Cochran Heath’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Very objective and attempts to refute his own claims in order to prove them.

    If you could give Obama’s America a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Not at all.

  • Alice in Zombieland

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Gena Showalter
    • Narrated By Natalie Gold
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.

    Linda B says: "Fun! Actually something new!"
    What did you love best about Alice in Zombieland?

    I actually liked just about everything about this. It had its slow moments but the narration, story, characters were all great. It was a bit predictable but I really would like to see a second book continue the story.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The modern setting and twist they put on zombies was quite good. It wasn't what you traditionally know about zombies which was nice.

    Any additional comments?

    I feel the association with Alice in Wonderland is a bit of a stretch. While I am aware that the idea of "Underland" is open to be interpreted and told many ways and does not have to follow an AiW theme it still just in no way resembled a trip to an alternate universe through a rabbit hole. I see where the attempt to make the connection was but I just feel that the title is a bit misleading as a fan of Underland stories. But as a stand alone book was well worth the listen and I strongly recommend.
