    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    What made the experience of listening to American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production) the most enjoyable?

    I always like a full cast production. It makes it easier to keep track of the characters and there are a lot of them here.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I had no idea where it was going. I'm still not sure if I really understood the last half. I will be listening to this again.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    I love long and complicated stories. I started on this because of the great reviews but the first volume was slow going. I'm willing to try the next one but I will not go on if it doesn't improve.

    I never realized how much Hollywood had tarted up the plot line of this classic. Tim Curry's reading saved it for me. I would never have made it through reading it myself.That being said, the language and writing style were an entertaining change.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    I can never keep all of Tom Clancy's characters straight but I enjoy the stories so much that I don't care. This was the closest I've ever come to following every plot point. Lou Diamond Phillips did an outstanding job with the accents, foreign phrases, and military jargon. I'll start looking for audio books with him as narrator.

  • Intensity: A Novel

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    This was not one of my favorites of Koontz's work. A bit too violent for my taste but it held my interest until the very end. I don't think I'll listen again but it was worth the money.

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    I love Pern! I've read all the books but wanted to revisit this enchanting place while I was convalescing from an illness. It was perfect. I think I would've preferred a female narrator because when I originally read the books I thought of them in a female voice. It was nice to hear all the names pronounced correctly as I often had no idea when I was reading them how they were meant to sound. This is a wonderful series. Read them all.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    She did an excellent job of narration.I was able to keep track of all the characters in this far ranging book. I hope she does the other two as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I was prepared to hate this book. I am so tired of witches, vampires, and all the rest of their supernatural relatives. What a pleasant surprise! It was interesting, complex, and unpredictable. Count me in for the rest of the trilogy.

  • Buddhism for Busy People

    In this simple, beautifully written book, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humour, he shows us how he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life, and the profound sense of well-being and heart-felt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Buddhism for Busy People to be better than the print version?

    This sort of material is usually a little dry so the audio book was a perfect solution.The narrator has a light and animated voice which is easy to listen to when the material is a bit slow. However, the author does have a good number of anecdotes to illustrate his points which always helps.
