    What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway? Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact. The Last Policeman presents a fascinating portrait of a pre-apocalyptic United States. The economy spirals downward while crops rot in the fields. Churches and synagogues are packed. People all over the world are walking off the job - but not Hank Palace. He’s investigating a death by hanging.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Though the story had a good premise (a detective still investigating a murder case as a devastating asteroid heads for earth) the delivery and production value were poor. It was very sleepy for a fiction/suspense novel.


    What was most disappointing about Ben H. Winters’s story?

    The delivery. Also the dialogue, there wasn't any! The protagonist mainly talks to himself or dreams, a poor way to write a novel.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Berkrot?

    Bronson Pinchot or James Marster's.


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

    Disappointment because I was looking forward to this one.

    Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

    What did you love best about On the Edge?

    The characters were All very rich, and the story flowed easily.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The protagonist Declan Camarine with all his arrogance and bravado made this story! He is not a character I will soon forget.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    A few come to mind, but i liked the end when Rose met the Dutches of the Southern Provinces. Moments like that make this story compelling, and induce the reader/listener to continue on in blithe.


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

    If I had the time I would definitely give it a try. This story moves along seamlessly and with pace.


    Any additional comments?

    I already purchased the second in this series.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest: Free Performance

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fool Moon to be better than the print version?

    Yes, James Marsters brings Harry Dresden to life > I would imagine Dresden sounding just like Marsters Portrays!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fool Moon?

    The character Terra and how she conducts herself was memorable and somewhat chilly!


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

    No, though it is worthy if you have the time!


    Any additional comments?

    Though for me this was not a better edition than the Original (Storm Front - book 1) it is a good listen ! I would listen to it if your going to continue to develop a relationship with this character and progress through the rest of the series...

    In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a nave young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry.
