  • Native American Tales, Myths and Legends

    The stories in this collection are drawn mainly from those tribes which lived in the northern and central areas of North America. These represent the linguistic groups gerneally referred to as Algonquian, Iroquois, and Sioux. A final chapter covers the tales of the northwest Pacific Coast.

    Story

    I love these stories and think they are great, I have always been interested in Native American myth and legend so I'm glad these were available.

    That being said, the narrator uses a very obviously fake 'Native American accent' which was not only difficult to understand but was incredibly offensive. He managed to take stories that are beautiful and cheapen them. I wasn't able to finish this audiobook as I could no longer stomach the narration.

  • Ready Player One

    (9950)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    I put off reading this one for some time because I am a 90s child and thought all of the references would go over my head and I wouldn't enjoy it. Quite the contrary! This was a great book and I loved it.

    Story

    I was excited to read this one because of all the positive reviews it got. However, I found that the author just spent the whole book writing lists of what was going on, rather than trying to engage me in a story. It was all "Will was a good listener. Will was clever", but I was never SHOWN this, just told over and over. The characters were dry and I just didn't find any reason to care about them. I also could not stand the voice used for the Ranger.

    In Trust the Dog, the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation introduces listeners to a group of extraordinary people who, thanks to their guide dogs, flourish in a world that assumes the ability to see. Among them are a brother and sister who lost their sight at a very young age and whose dogs essentially helped them grow up, a Serbian girl who fled civil war to find new hope in America, and a newly blind single father determined to keep his family together against all odds.

    Read this book because I am on a waiting list for a service dog and wanted insight into daily life with one. Found this book to be very well narrated and I quite enjoyed it. Definitely gave a good account of the service dog and handler relationship.
