    Everything is possible in Paolo Bacigalupi's "The Fluted Girl". All you ever wanted is here, but it all has a price, and often the physical cost is way too steep. Cell knitters, Revitia treatments, and stolen body parts improve all aspects of the human body. And in Bacigalupi's decadent future world, the goal of all this is simply to enhance one's social standing.

    Story

    I love Paolo Bacigalupi's stories. This is an interesting and compelling short story about biological modification. Unfortunately, the tone of the reader's voice just about drove me crazy. The voices used for different characters were easily distinguishable, but they all grated on my nerves. Thank goodness it's short.

    Story

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    The latest addition to the Game of Thrones series is just as compelling as the books that came before it. The story follows an expanding number of characters to unexpected places.

    My enjoyment of the story was tempered by my frustration with the narration. I'm not sure why Roy Dotrice felt the need to create various accents for the characters. I'm also not sure why most of those accents are British. Certain characters sound as if they are toothless and speaking with a mouthful of marbles. I found most of the voices to be distracting and irritating.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Story

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    I loved this story when I first saw the book, but hearing it read by Samuel L Jackson takes it to a new level of hilarity!
