    Would you listen to Zombie Fallout 5 again? Why?

    Probably


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Too much time was spent in flashbacks


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice acting. Brings the characters alive.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this is a great series. This last book was not one of the better ones because so much time was spent on relationship flashbacks. Still, I completely recommend the series.

  • War and Remembrance

    Story
    (1675)

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    aaron says: "What can I say that hasn't already been said??"
    "Published a while ago but amazingly good."

  • Furies of Calderon: Codex Alera, Book 1

    Story
    (3097)

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Jim says: "Remastered into chapters from CD."
    "Well Crafted Story."
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite fantasy series. It had me interested from the beginning and I couldn't wait to read the following books. The main character actually develops and turns into a true hero that you enjoy following in the story. If you're looking for a CHANGE from Robert Jordan's long winded style with plots that go nowhere, then this is your book.
