    Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, is dying, and Spock returns to the planet Vulcan where he and Sarek enjoy a rare moment of rapprochement. But just as his wife's illness grows worse, duty calls Sarek away, once again sowing the seeds of conflict between father and son. Yet soon Sarek and Spock must put aside their differences and work together to foil a far-reaching plot to destroy the Federation, a plot that Sarek has seen in the making for nearly his entire career.

    Absolutely love this story! The best of Star Trek adventure pacing with some real human emotions, feelings, and relationships! I hope there are more from AC Crispin and Nick Sullivan (who does a stellar job of both male and female!).

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    This was a good story ala Stephen King, and a great performance by the narrator Ray Porter. I would have given the story a higher rating of 4 starts if so much of it didn't actually remind me of King's Gunslinger series or even some others. The story was well written and kept me engaged the whole time, so it is worth the entertainment value.

  • The Long Run: One Man's Attempt to Regain his Athletic Career-and His Life - by Running the New York City Marathon

    On the morning of December 22, 2005, New York City firefighter Matt Long was cycling to work when he was struck by and sucked under a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him within inches of death. Miraculously, after five months in the hospital and more than 40 operations, Matt was able to start his recovery. This book chronicles Matt's road to recovery as he teaches himself to walk again and, a mere three years later, to run in the 2008 New York City Marathon.

    Story

    Barely an hour into this, I feel bad for Matt until he continues his political puke blaming. He should be blaming the powerful oil and gas companies that have our government using our taxes for road (for cars, buses and trucks), instead of having invested it our public transportation system (which FYI is not subsidised like our roads for the car, gas and oil companies - by virtue of us, the tax payers, paying for)!

    I paid for a book about recovery from an accident, not another way for this chum to make more money spewing complete garbage!

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Story

    I was shocked by how bad this was with all the high marks. This would be a good action MOVIE, not a book. My goodness it was boring and filled with silly try-to-be-funny pokes at various politics. It started off OK, even though a little lame in the funny, but just proceeded to be way too long-winded. Mr Wyman is an excellent narrator, but the substance kind of stinks compared to David Weber's books, so he doesn't really help the story much.

I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Story

    I expected this to be better based on the reviews. It was really slow for more than the first 1/2 (which is quite a long time). The story was certainly interesting, once past the sluggishness, but comparisons to Jordan, Sanderson and Bujoid are off base.

    All three of those (Sanderson to a lesser degree) build characters personalities, Rothfuss has not accomplished that with this book. I feel no attachment to any of Ruthfuss's characters, which has never been the case with the other authors mentioned. The comparison to Harry Potter was closer, although I think this (name of the wind) better that that (I only read the first one and found it too juvenile).

    To me it seemed much more a childs book except I can't imaging children having the patience to read through such a slow book.

    The reader Podehl, was totally fine.

    I got the box set with Len Cariou as narrator and absolutely loved those three stories and the way they were told. I listened to the 1st Harry Bosch with Dick Hill as narrator and then this one. I just can't take it. I know some think he's great but he sounds cheesy and just like the character in Lee Child's books - they sound exactly the same.

    This is a great book and story with wonderful characters. This is also one of the most depressing of King's books I have listened too. I think that is the horror of it.
