  • The Legend of Broken

    Story
    (58)

    With the historical storytelling brilliance of Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth, the hugely best-selling author of The Alienist writes a bounding epic: The Legend of Broken is an action-packed, multi-charactered tale of a medieval clash of cultures. In Caleb Carr’s fascinating tale of the kingdom of Broken, legend meets history, science defies all expectation, and one noble soldier struggles to save a fortress city besieged by enemies within and without.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know who would enjoy this book. It had pretty good ratings so I felt confident downloading it and using a credit. This book could be shorter if the author would just get to the point.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Caleb Carr again?

    I really don't think so.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think the performance was ok. I like the accent but I don't like the inflection. I have a hard time distinguishing between his humor voice and his serious voice since they are the same.


    What character would you cut from The Legend of Broken?

    The author.

    Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. His human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Brought back against his will, he became the sole defender of mankind.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better writing. The straw that breaks the camels back between Acheron and Artemis stems from her telling him that she had a baby. Ash assumes it to mean that she stole a child from a village and breaks off any ties he has with her and thus begins the Dark Hunter legacy. The thing is, she says this to him in Greek in the book - which Kenyon clearly states. Greek is a very structured language. The grammar would not have gotten in the way as it suggested by Kenyon. Because of this gaffe (which a little research would have resolved) I have been unable to read any more of her work.
    The abuse in this book is also ridiculously graphic. Sherrilyn Kenyon tends to write graphic adult scenes but these were over the top.


    What was most disappointing about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s story?

    Lack of research into something so fundamental to the world she created.


    What three words best describe Holter Graham’s performance?

    It was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Acheron?

    The graphic sexual abuse and the greek gaffe.

  • From Dead to Worse: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #8

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Charlaine Harris

    Story
    (1696)

    The eighth entry in Charlaine Harris' New York Times best selling, Anthony Award-winning series finds Sookie reeling from an explosive attack on the previous month's vampire summit. Many vampires were killed, including several of Sookie's friends. But most pressing for Sookie is the unknown status of her weretiger boyfriend Quinn. Like it or not, everything is changing in the supernatural world - and Sookie is caught in the middle.

    Irenehope says: "Seven books in Seven Days"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    I found the story to be pretty good. The constant repeating of Sookie's telepathic "disability" gets annoying after a while, though.
