    A posthumous recipient of the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, Marion Zimmer Bradley reinvented - and rejuvenated - the King Arthur mythos with her extraordinary Mists of Avalon series. In this epic work, Bradley follows the arc of the timeless tale from the perspective of its previously marginalized female characters: Celtic priestess Morgaine, Gwenhwyfar, and High Priestess Viviane.

    Where does The Mists of Avalon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better audiobooks since it is an old favorite.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The reader, Davina Porter. She is one of my favorites.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She is able to mix and match the voices without making all the men sound like idiots.


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

    I guess my strongest reaction is just a real comfort with the story - I strongly associate with the crossover elements to other literature on the Arthurian legends.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly, highly recommend.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Would you listen to The Fault in Our Stars again? Why?

    With the movie coming up I wanted to listen to this beforehand and I'm so glad I did. Great story with unexpected twists. The dialogue is perfectly aligned with how young adults communicate. The narrator was compelling and convincing as Hazel Grace.I listened to this straight through - literally couldn't stop for seven plus hours.


    What other book might you compare The Fault in Our Stars to and why?

    ..


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I will in the future


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

    Did it.

    July 2005. In the Pyrenees mountains near Carcassonne, Alice, a volunteer at an archaeological dig stumbles into a cave and makes a startling discovery: two crumbling skeletons, strange writings on the walls, and the pattern of a labyrinth; between the skeletons, a stone ring, and a small leather bag.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Some parts just seemed to go on forever with no real point but it WAS interesting to discover the parallel characters between the times.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kate Mosse before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    Did Donada Peters do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, she is completely believable and her french is quite fine.
