    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Altho I liked his previous novels I was unable to finish listening to this book. Take a mediocre novel, add truly unfortunate production choices and top it with a reading in which the vocal interpretation of characters approached comic book believability and you've exceeded my tolerance for pain. I still look forward to his next book.

    Called “the finest thriller writer in the world today” by the Daily Telegraph, Gerald Seymour is the author of several acclaimed best-sellers. A novel of riveting suspense, The Untouchable is the tale of Mister, the supreme crimelord of London, and his scheme to expand his illicit enterprises into the Balkans. Only one man stands in his way - British customs officer Joey Cann. With a flawless reading by narrator Gerard Doyle, The Untouchable is truly an enthralling listen.

    A well written novel, skillfully narrated, and ultimately mind numbingly sad. I will have to wait a while before I listen to it again.

    Set in the land of Zamonia, this exuberant, highly original fantasy from Walter Moers features an unlikely hero. Rumo is a little Wolperting—a domesticated creature somewhere between a deer and a dog—who will one day become the greatest hero in the history of Zamonia. Armed with Dandelion, his talking sword, he fights his way through the Overworld and the Netherworld.

    Overall

    be warned if alvin and the chipmunk specials make your ears ache, this reading is not for you. The writing is clever and inventive, the reading well done but the voice characterizations are weak and the electronic voice manipulation just oh so grating. A book to be read.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Overall

    I purchased this book with reservations. On the one hand I found the premise interesting, on the other I have no fondness for the main narrator's technique. While I am able to lose myself in the content for pages during action sequences, it is during the quiet descriptive lulls that I cringe. His need to impart each sentence with deep emotional content no matter the appropriateness is, to me distracting.
    > I found the story very good. With a bit more editing to it King fans might feel right at home.
