  • Broken Mirrors: A Marla Mason Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 55 mins)

    A Marla Mason novel! She's an ass-kicking sorcerer who doesn't wear a leather catsuit, doesn't suffer from low self-esteem, doesn't wallow in angst, and is almost always absolutely certain she's right... even when she's dead wrong. What about Broken Mirrors? It's got monsters. It's got sarcasm. It's got death, betrayal, ancient gods, dark doppelgangers, mirror worlds, wisecracks, artifacts, oracles, and magical daggers. Oh... and a cloak.

    Would you try another book from T. A. Pratt and/or Jessica Almasy?

    NO!


    What was most disappointing about T. A. Pratt’s story?

    The characters were cartoonlike


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jessica Almasy’s performances?

    Yes. Her performance seemed overacted, but the story lent itself to that.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't finish it and that is rare for me.

  • Thirteenth Child

    Story

    Eff was born a thirteenth child. Her twin brother, Lan, is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means he's supposed to possess amazing talent - and she's supposed to bring only bad things to her family and her town. Undeterred, her family moves to the frontier, where her father will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that separates settlers from the beasts of the wild. With wit and wonder, Patricia Wrede creates an alternate history of westward expansion that will delight fans of both J. K. Rowling and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

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

    I listened with my two young adult daughters. It sounded like a fun book but it was terminally boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia C. Wrede again?

    No


    What aspect of Amanda Ronconi’s performance would you have changed?

    I can't blame the performance. The book was just a great concept made as dry as possible. Even the magical parts were rendered boring. It was like Harry Potter and Laura Ingalls with the best parts of both removed.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I kept hoping for it to get better. The premise seemed so promising. But I could have stopped at any point. I just finished because I was on a long drive.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    (16587)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    He didn't over -do accents and voices.


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