    No one else could have narrated this book. Perfect. I did give it a 3 star review though. Only because it felt like I was getting a repeat performance. I had already read the same stuff in her previous books. That was a bit disappointing.

  • Free: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    Mild-mannered Walter Mitty is a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. This well-known and beloved tale has launched its famous protagonist into the cultural lexicon, warranting his inclusion in English-language dictionaries and countless anthologies. Stiller's imaginative performance as Mitty is the perfect re-introduction to the classic character and a great preface to the upcoming film, for longtime fans and new listeners alike.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dangerous Dream to be better than the print version?

    I didnt read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I guess that would be Ridley. She is the only one who seems to be aware of who she is.


    What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

    I love Kevin T. Collins. I have listened to several books where he is the narrator.


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

    Yes, and I did.

    I loved this novelette. I can not wait until the next book !! Very excited for it.

    On a quest to find her sister's killer, Mac is a major player in a deadly game, but with one great advantage: she knows how to find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient book of magic so dark it corrupts anyone who touches it. What Mac soon discovers is worse than she had imagined. Surrounded by treachery, her enemies indistinguishable from her allies, she can be certain of only one thing: as All Hallows' Eve approaches, her time is running out.

    Would you try another book from Karen Marie Moning and/or Joyce Bean?

    Yes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Marie Moning again?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I dont really care for this narrators male voices. #1, they all sound the same, #2. They just arent that good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am listening to all of these books because, to be honest, i bought every one of them before I even listened to the first one, mainly because they were highly recommended by friends. Now, I am sick of hearing the word "orgasm".


    Any additional comments?

    These books are beginning to be very drawn out. It's almost like the author is trying to see how many books can be written from this one story. Nothing really happens. I will be listening to them all but really not enjoying them.

    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I have, to everyone !!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    OMG!!! What a book. I laughed, cried, gasped, cursed. It was an exciting ride. Probably the best mystery/thriller I have EVER read!! And I have read a lot. Just when you think it's all figured out, now let's wrap it up, something else happens. HIGHLY recommended. I wish there were more than 5 stars to give it.


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

    He is just a fabulous narrator. He shows such emotion. He is an actor and not just a reader.


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

    I NEVER want to lose sleep over a book, no matter how good it is. But i found myself going to bed much later just so I could see how this book ended. It was THAT GOOD !!


    Any additional comments?

    HIGHLY recommended, Get this book !! Very much worth the credit.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Six Years to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Six Years to and why?

    At first, i thought this was going to be similar to Tell No One, also by Harlan Coben. I will admit, I was very disappointed. Thank goodness I was wrong.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I had only listened to one other book narrated by Scott Brick and the story was so awful, it completely took away from the talents of Mr. Brick. I very much enjoyed this narration. He is excellent when it comes to multiple voices.


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

    Yes, I pretty much did. If sleep wasnt so necessary, I probably would have.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent book. I had heard and read so many positive reviews of this book so I decided to try it myself. I am so glad I did. I enjoyed it tremendously.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    Very refreshing. No cursing, no violence.
    I will be looking for more of these little short stories.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Not only was this a very touching story, it was an excellent mystery. This was a first for me from this author. I had heard so much about this so I thought I would give it a try. I was very impressed.

    Maggie is a marine dog that lost her partner and friend Pete. She and police officer Scott James are put together. Scott also lost his partner in the line of duty. A beautiful friendship develops. Scott and Maggie set out to find the killers of his partner.

    I am hoping this turns into a series. I would love to read more about Maggie and Scott.

    Definitely a 5 star book for me.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    If you could sum up The Fault in Our Stars in three words, what would they be?

    I LOVED this !!!


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    Maybe the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio? I can't explain why. It just reminded me a lot of it.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Hazel Grace


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh I did a lot of both !! I cried so much, my eyes were sore by the end of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely LOVED this book !! I listened to it in one day. Only stopping to eat and go to the bathroom. I will probably listen to it again one day. And I am NOT a rereader/relistener.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Storm Front to be better than the print version?

    I wouldn't know. I haven't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Front?

    Probably the battle scenes. The way Harry always seemed to have control of the situation.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    He brought the character to life. He wasn't just "reading" the book. He was "acting" the book out.


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

    The end. When he thought he was going to die.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Harry Dresden book. I enjoyed the tv series so I thought I would try the books. Not like the tv show I must say. I remember a few details from the show. Bob for instance is a person who is in the skull. It seems Harry never actually sees Bob in the book. The TV Harry doesn't seem so be quite so "renegade-ish"
    I will probably "listen" to all of these books over reading them.
