I drive for a living and listen to a lot of books. I enjoy the long series of books because I go through them so quickly.

    Karigan G’ladheon, running away from school, is traveling through a deep forest when a galloping horse pounds up to her, its rider impaled by two black-shafted arrows. With his dying breath, he tells her he is a Green Rider, one of the magical messengers of the King. Before he dies, he makes Karigan swear to deliver the message he’s carrying, and gives her his green coat, with the symbolic brooch of his office.

    Would you listen to Green Rider again? Why?

    I will read again. Very entertaining. I am putting in on favorites list, right up there with Tolkein.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love this book. Wondered at first if it was more of a teen novel, but glad I kept reading. The more I read, the harder it was to put it down. I am on the last book in the series to date, and I will miss it.


    What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

    Awesome job. So smooth, she makes you feel like you are right there in the story.


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

    No, but the suspense of the denied romance is killing me. Hope it it doesn't end like that.

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

    What other book might you compare Innocence to and why?

    I think this is like his earlier novels. Which I am thankful for. Deep and thought provoking yet simple. He's gotten too much like Stephen King the last few years in my opinion. Too much violence.

    Love the ending!

    Marc Vitrac was born in the early 1960's, about the time the first interplanetary probes delivered the news that Mars and Venus were teeming with life, even human life. Now, in 1988, Marc has been assigned to the US-Commonwealth base on Venus. But there are flies in this ointment - and not only the Venusian dragonflies, with their yard-wide wings....Extravagant and effervescent, The Sky People is alternate-history SF adventure at its best.

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    Some of these types of books are not enjoyable or easy to read. I did enjoy this one however and thought it had a good story.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    What did you like best about this story?

    In the first book poor Caladen just couldn't catch a break. An interesting story but a little depressing. I was very happy that this book while still very intense had a broader charactar and story base that relieved some of the gloom. If you liked the first book you will love this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All good.


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

    Loved every minute.


    Any additional comments?

    Narration was great too.

    I have to agree with some other comments about these stories being a wee bit drawn out and some, um, slightly unusual characters. But I enjoyed them anyway. A good book should stretch your imagination a little bit.
