    It all began with the theft of the Orb that protected the West from the evil God Torak. Before that, Garion had been a simple farm boy. Afterward, he discovered he's a sorcerer. Now, at last, the Orb has been regained and the quest nears its end. Of course, the questors must still escape from a crumbling enemy fortress, flee across a desert filled with Murgo soldiers, and avoid the Grolim Hierarchs seeking to destroy them with dark magic.

    Story

    I absolutely liked the story a lot, but what made it become love was the narration by Cameron Beierle. That man is TALENTED! 8 different accents and sooo much more. If you have never read the Belgariad, listen to it now. If you read it before and liked it, listen to it now and fall in love with it.

    Story

    Upon finishing the Hunger Games Trilogy, I realized that I both loved and hated it. I will tell you the reasons.

    I loved it: I really loved the concepts the author had and the story she unfolded for the reader. Character Development was deep and you really found yourself caring who lived and died and wondering what was going to happen next. I was invested in the story. I liked the fact that Suzanne Collins was alright with having her main character living the reality of confusion and desperation of just wanting to live. I think sometimes she might have pushed it a bit far, but mostly that wasn't a problem.

    I hated it: OMG Filler. Seriously the author felt the need to tell every little side thing and it was sadly to the detriment of the flow of the book. The end went on and on and on. Was it necessary to add all that? Probably not and while some of it is interesting and you don't mind the tangents, some of it is really downright boring and annoying. You kind of have to chew through the cud to get to the good bits. This isn't really present in the first book, but the second starts this cycle and it is especially in the last book.

    Overall, I really enjoyed the story. I really loved the characters. I liked how it turned out and I would recommend the read. The first two books were better than the last, but just hold on and get through the last to finish it out.

    The quest was over. The Orb of Aldur was restored. And once again, with the crowning of Garion, there was a descendant of Riva Iron-grip to rule as Overlord of the West. And yet the prophecy was unfulfilled. In the east, the evil god Torak was about to awaken and seek dominion. Somehow, Garion had to face the god, to kill or be killed. On the outcome of that dread duel rested the destiny of the world.

The ending was a great one, with the author taking the time to close all the loops of stories. If you have never read the Belgariad, listen to it now. If you read it before and liked it, listen to it now and fall in love with it.

Now, the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its queen, a witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But she is still young, still open to influence - and corruption.

    Story

    IF you love Twilight, you will probably like this.

    I am not even half way through this book and I can already tell you this:

    The characters are petulant and one sided. They are not lovable, hardly even likable.

    The character names are horrid and not at all creative.

    The world is not described at all. You pretty much have to guess as you are reading. It's as though the author knows the world so well, she forgot we don't. What a major oversight!

    For me, this reads like a self important role play she tried to translate into a book. So far Terrible, do not read. I can't believe I am going to force myself to finish it. Too bad I can't return audio books.

    --Note, I am not going to finish this book. It is tripe. I can't believe I am saying that, but I am.

    (Note, I accidently put this on the second book, but I could not bring myself to read that book.)

    Story

    I absolutely love this series. Starting from the beginning, now to book 5, it is a continuous story of a hardnosed cop and her efforts to solve crimes and have a life. Her friends are dynamic and I laughed often. It has a little of that "this has a formula" feel, but the story is so intriguing, that it matters little.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Story

    This political science fiction drama is an amazing book. Frank Herbert wrote a fascinating tale about how Paul Atreides came to become Muad'dib and the Emperor of all the galaxy. IT is full of mystery and political intrigue, a flight from death, survival in the desert. Unlike many authors of his time, Herbert brought forth strong female leads in addition to his strong male leads. Simon Vance does an amazing job narrating this book and bringing it to life. His voice is smooth and pleasant to listen to. The rest of the cast add contrast and color I was not expecting and was happy to hear. They worked well together, blending the story into one cohesive oration. Loved!
