    Would you consider the audio edition of World Divided to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version...


    What other book might you compare World Divided to and why?

    Hard to compare it considering how it is constructed, but I loved it.

    The first book in the series, he is consistent and does a GREAT job.


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

    Very heroic feeling, joy, sadness and every button in between.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes comic's and super heros, this was amazing, well done, and well thought out.

    An experiance that should not be missed. A masterful Epic with many twists and turns that keep you well engaged through the entire series!.

    The Orator is amazing as well with a range of voice and emotion that will make the Epic come alive and dance.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    It is great comic book hero, meeting undead. Something that is new and original. Being a fan of both, I enjoyed it, and will miss it now that it is gone. I ordered book 2 before I was out of the first chapters of book 1.

    Even worthy of a re-read, and I dont do that oftain!

    King Jorian was rather attached to his head. Hence, he felt his promise to seal the Kist of Avlen, a treasure trove of ancient manuscripts on magic, was little enough a price to pay for a chance to escape his own beheading. But when the quest pitted him against one peril after another - a murderous wizard and his giant squirrel, a castle full of executioners, a marauding troop of ape men, and a voluptuous 500-year-old princess who was also a serpent - Jorian wondered if he'd made a good bargain!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Goblin Tower to be better than the print version?

    Everything, it reawakens the feel for old fan fiction in me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Goblin Tower?

    Made me want to go back and re-read some of the other old si/fi fan fiction


    Which character – as performed by Charles Bice – was your favorite?

    Classic, if you have not read anything from Camp you need to.


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

    Nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    Remember before you order, this is CLASSIC, the author was one of the first big names in Fan Fiction.
    Some times you have to remember the age this was put out, and remember that things were more simple in those days, and the thoughts and idea's they put out also are. This does not in any way date the book too badly. I will read it again and again.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Alastair Reynolds? Why or why not?

    No......was great in the beginning then it tended to annoy me as the characters got more dumb as they went on.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    Very believable character action.


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

    No had to go back to it a few times

    It is the dawn of the 21st century, and America is in trouble. Public schools breed apathy and ignorance, and politics has become the art of the quick fix. There is one woman, though, who has both the vision and the money to leverage change. Mariesa Gorley van Huyten, heiress to one of the great American fortunes, is determined to bring America, and the rest of the world, back on track. She founds an educational subsidiary in hopes of raising a new, less cynical generation.

    Would you try another book from Michael Flynn and/or Malcolm Hillgartner?

    I think I am done with Michael Flynn. Will do another by Malcolm.


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

    Anticlimatic


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have not.


    Do you think Firestar needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It was a slow build up book, and the future of the book is very predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    Went into this hoping for great Si/Fi, and it turned into a major sweeping drama. I do not mind a little drama, and self introspection, but the book was plagued by enormous amounts of heavy Drama. The intrigue was fun, and the overall concept sound, but it could have been told in a much shorter book, with a much farther in the future outcome.

    I found myself growing tired of all the "twists" that were attempted. I had to put the book down and go back to it several times just to make it through, as I like to finish something once I start it.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    Would you listen to Legion again? Why?

    Yes, it had parts in it that deserve a second listen.

    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The final moment when I realized it was done, and I have to wait for more !


    Any additional comments?

    A very unique angle for a crime fighter, I was reminded of Criminal Minds, mixed up with a bit of Dresden Files. One to look forward to more from.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Laugh out loud several times, not a crying book although. The humor was dry in places, but it all fit together.
