    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    What disappointed you about The Eye of the World?

    I don't get why this series is so popular. I honestly thought Jordan was making some of this up as he was going. I like detail in my books, but, there are different ways of doing it. George RR Martin has it down, Jordan, not so much. His detail is just tedious and drawn out. I cared none for any of the characters. And even thought it's been said before, the Tolkien ripoff is ever evident. So much so that alot of this seem so unoriginal. So again, I tried, I really did.


    Has The Eye of the World turned you off from other books in this genre?

    From this genre, no...from this series, yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I thought they were both dreadful. Micheal Kramer tries too hard and over emphasizes and comes off as whiny and nasal.


    Any additional comments?

    I just don't understand why this is so popular and hyped.

  • Rule of Two: Star Wars: Darth Bane, Book 2

    In the New York Times best-seller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man’s journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith - until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order...and create it anew from the ashes.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Rule of Two to be better than the print version?

    Yes! The sound effects and background noise make it so much more enjoyable!! You can actually put yourself into the action.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rule of Two?

    So many stand out moments...but if pressured...the final battle is quite awesome! It seem to last like for 10 minutes of listening!!


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?

    He does them all quite well, even the females. However, I think he seems to do quite well with Valenthyne Farfalla. He seems to put allot of emotion and feeling into his dialog.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Ultimate Anti-Hero


    Any additional comments?

    Even though Bane is the real main character here, he spends allot of time in the background. The gist of the story focuses on Zannah and her missions and training. Also on her doubts. She is by a Sith for sure, but sometimes feels torn about it.

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Where does Path of Destruction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first book I've listened to with background noise/sound effects and it makes it so much more enjoyable and easy to listen to!! Being a huge SW nerd I find it hard to believe it's taken me this long to listen to expanded universe book. Well worth it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Path of Destruction?

    For me it was Banes training on Korriban


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes with Githany. Two devious personalities trying to subdue the other


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry...no. Laugh...yes a few times. Des is quite funny in his gruff personality.


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't stop listening. On to Book 2.....
