    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

    At first, I wasn't sure about Khristine Hvam--Karou sounded a bit too much like Arial from the Little Mermaid--but I was soon impressed by how she slipped in and out of the different character's voices, and she won me over. The story, however, had me at hello. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is the best fantasy story I've heard (or read) this year. I'm so excited to hear the rest!

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Like pretty much all the characters in The Name of the Wind, I am enamored by Kvothe at the same time as I find him maddening. But imperfect characters are my favorite thing ever, so I'm really looking forward to continuing this series.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Story

    The Kingkiller Chronicles has everything I want in an epic fantasy series: compelling but imperfect characters, adventures, and a surprising amount of humor. Unfortunately, it also has the one thing I don't like about epic fantasies: long waits between books. It's like not being able to talk to someone you love, with no end in sight...

    In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

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

    Yes! I joined Audible so that I would have something to listen to on my commute, but I've been listening to Days of Blood and Starlight every chance I get--not just in the car.


    Any additional comments?

    It's so great to be excited by a story again, and this series is pushing all my buttons. I just love it.

  • Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Which character – as performed by Rob Lowe – was your favorite?

    This is a hard one... maybe Bill Clinton.


    Any additional comments?

    I've never been much of a Rob Lowe fangirl, despite being the right age, but I did like him in Californication, and the reviews here were good, so I thought I would check it out, and I'm glad I did. As everyone said, his impersonations were spot on, but more importantly, Stories I Only Tell My Friends has heart. Rob was funny, smart, thoughtful, and also respectful and kind when it came to pretty much everyone he has worked with. What's not to like? He may have just won me over.
