    Story

    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Authors take to long to get to the point. They spend to much time showing how evil the evil is, and how bad things are for the humans. This book took too much time to get to the real storyline which is really good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Overall story line is great. There is a good plot, lots of twists and turns but sometimes a little predictable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Aasne Vigesaa?

    yes.


    Was The Elvenbane worth the listening time?

    yes

    Story
    (3030)

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you can overlook the insane amount of profanity and crassness in the book, and don't mind characters that speak like college professors, but are orphans without education, then you might enjoy this book. Apparently many people do. I didn't enjoy it at all and couldn't even bring myself to finish the book. The story wasn't that compelling and left me time and again feeling that the people are incongruous with their situation. Yes, I can believe that a small child can be highly intelligent and very clever, and by some stretch of the imagination I might be able to concede that a person leading the thieves guild could appear highly educated, but not everyone! Sometimes I felt that the author simply likes to hear himself speak (or write) in this case. He wants to show how intelligent he is by his use of words rather than writing a compelling story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Scott Lynch again?

    Probably not


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


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

    dissappointment

    Story
    Would you listen to The Total Money Makeover again? Why?

    Yes, I will probably listen to the book twice a year, until I feel that I have my finances under control. In the month since I have listened to this book, I have been able to form a budget, save $1000 in my emergency fund, and starting paying off my debts. I plan on having all my debts except my house to be paid off with in 16 months.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is broken down into steps that are easy to understand and help to motivate you to build wealth.


    What about Dave Ramsey’s performance did you like?

    Great speaker with good sense of humor, but treats the topic with the sincerity it deserves.


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

    no, this book was meant to be digested in parts. I listened to it strait through but now I am going back through and applying the steps to myself.


    Any additional comments?

    If you listen to this book, and apply the principals taught it will change your life.
