    What did you love best about Battle of the Ampere?

    The continued development of the storyline


    What other book might you compare Battle of the Ampere to and why?

    gosh, I don't know


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't know.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Michael Vey does it again!


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked this series. I might listen to this one again, because, although I was motivated to keep going from the first two books, I was distracted some during this one (not the book's fault). But I knew Michael would come through!!

    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Rise of the Elgen to be better than the print version?

    I don't know; I do very little print


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I thought the stinky guy was intriguing


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

    keeping it moving along; didn't get sleepy from sitting and reading


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the stinky guy sacrificed himself; also the friendships were moving and how they all stuck together.


    Any additional comments?

    These are really good books. I highly recommend. The premise of the power with the rats was very unique, kind of disgusting and very interesting all at the same time.

    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

    Not that I know of


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I went from one to the next.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very interesting storyline, characters and filled with action. I enjoyed the science fiction of it as well! I kept thinking "these are kids' books?", but I do think my oldest granddaughter would like them. I got the recommendation from the Glenn Beck radio show I believe. Glad I followed his advice!

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Has Dark Witch turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't go for this series for sure


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The accent was detracting


    Any additional comments?

    How do I return this book? I heard you can do that.

    L.A. police detective Shane Scully comes under investigation by Internal Affairs (derisively known as "the tin collectors") after he kills his ex-partner who was one of the mayor's bodyguards. Temporarily reassigned, so that he can remain under the department's watchful eye, Scully finds that more than his badge is at stake when he is set up to take the rap in a deadly plot of corruption and conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the LAPD.

    Would you try another book from Stephen J. Cannell and/or Robert Lawrence?

    I have been a 'whodunnit' fan for many years and this book did not disappoint. I will try others by this author. I don't go only by the narrator. My enthusiasm is just stunted as I am reaching out for other kinds of books. I find myself being 'assaulted' by bloody/violence descriptions sometimes.

    In her highly anticipated new book, brassy and beloved medium Theresa Caputo, star of the hit television show Long Island Medium, opens the door to her world and invites us to experience her exceptional gift of communicating with those who've crossed over to The Other Side. Combining Theresa's personal story, compelling anecdotes, and client readings, this remarkable book teaches us about Spirit and helps us understand the life-affirming messages that are sent to us every day.

    Would you listen to There's More to Life than This again? Why?

    There was a LOT of information about how she 'sees' and interprets her "Spirit" connection. Having watched every possible episode of the Long Island Medium I can, I was enthralled. Teresa's narration was a little 'stilted' (like she was carefully reading) as first, but either she 'warmed up' or I got used to it. She's a special person I believe and her message has definitely touched my life in a very positive way.

    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    Story
    Where does The Overton Window rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was hard to get through (content-wise) because it was SO possibly real-life, that I found myself with the same 'angst' I get when I watch what is going on in our true-to-life politics. When I get so filled up with anxiety and that 'helpless to do anything about it" feeling, I have to 'turn it off'. So I found myself doing the same while listening to this 'fiction' story...not the fault of the book! I did finish it and would recommend it as 'enlightening' in a scary sort of way.

    Radio and television host Glenn Beck has experienced the rollercoaster of life like few others. From the suicide of his mother when he was just 13, to his eventual alcoholism, depression, divorce, unemployment, and health scares - Glenn has weathered life’s darkest storms. Any one of those struggles could’ve ruined him, yet Glenn was able to keep moving forward. He saw past the darkness into the light; past his grief and addictions and into what his life could be.

    What made the experience of listening to The 7 the most enjoyable?

    I really liked hearing about Glenn Beck's life experiences, especially related to the LDS church. His candid stories were human and easy to relate to. The "Dr" excerpts in between were ok, but were like elementary lectures...I took them as a 'reminder' of the principles they were trying to communicate. I did enjoy listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Glenn Beck's stories


    What about Pat Gray and Brian Sack ’s performance did you like?

    They were great


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life lessons
