    I found this book to be very helpful. In fact, after I listened to it, I bought it to have handy as a reference. This book can be difficult to listen to as it contains a lot if intricate information that is best absorbed on the page; however, the audio version did its good by introducing me to the book and getting my creative juices going.

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    Overall

    So far, I have listened to Ender's Game and this one, and so far, Orson Scott Card has been one of the very few authors to move me with his words. This book is as exciting as it is emotional. A great story told by a great author.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Overall

    What I love best about this book is how it illustrates the futility of war. I enjoyed the resolution and everything before it. Wonderfully written and performed.

    As the story opens, Snowman is sleeping in a tree, mourning the loss of his beloved Oryx and his best friend Crake, and slowly starving to death. How did everything fall apart so quickly? Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories? Alone except for the green-eyed Children of Crake, he explores the answers to these questions in the double journey he takes - into his own past, and back to Crake's high-tech bubble-dome, where the Paradice Project unfolded and the world came to grief.

    Overall

    This book presents an interesting p.o.v to the end of the world. It was well written though to peripheral at times.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret.

    Overall

    Right from the beginning, this book is enthralling. It grabbed my attention immediately and didn't let go. I love the use of two narrators for the story. They both did an amazing job. Highly recommended.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Good, but long"
    Overall

    I liked this book, but I thought it was a little long. It's a very interesting story and well written. The narrator did a good job, as well.

    Though she's the vampire queen, Betsy Taylor is much more like a princess. In MaryJanice Davidson's novels, this high-maintenance monarch is finally coming to terms with her new status.

    This is a good book. I like the development of the characters and the direction the story is going. This is a great series.

    I liked the others more. This one drags a bit in the middle and seems to be majority for setup, which makes it necessary for the overall story. I did like it, but...
