    At the tender age of 10, Fanny Price is 'adopted' by her rich relations and is removed from the poverty of her home in Portsmouth to the opulence of Mansfield Park. The transplantation is not a happy one. Dependent, helpless, neglected and forgotten, Fanny struggles to come to terms with her new life until, tested almost to the limits of endurance, she assumes her rightful role....

    Where does Mansfield Park rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Juliet Stevenson is amazing. She does a great job at giving the text the inflection it needs. She can portray happy, distraught, shallow, etc. All that is necessary for a true portrayal of Austen's characters. But I felt like, somewhere in part 2, Jane Austen forgot where she had meant for this book to go and it sort of dragged on with the details of everyday until she could finally work her way back around to the desired ending.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator is AWFUL. The high pitch she takes to narrate Lissa makes Lissa sound like a complete airhead. And the story line is very thin. Not suprising, not suspensful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephanie Wolf’s performances?

    I've heard good things about these books, so I'm considering giving Book 2 a try.

    Lanik Mueller is a "rad" - radical regenerative - a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft. But it is a promise which may never be fulfilled, as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination.

    Once again Orson Scott Card takes the reader into a fantastical world all of his own creation. What an imagination this man has! The book was a good listen; I feel that it could have been better (and OSC agrees in his intro). Not as good as the Ender's Game books, but still a great exercise for the imagination.
