    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "A Truely Great Book"
    Overall

    All I can really say about this book, is that it is simply one of the best i've ever read, and the Narration is very good, easy to understand. This is the sort of book that simply, just tells a good story, gives you an insight into the different minds, the different cultures, and the different things that makes us human. No matter what genre of story You enjoy, I am sure you will like this one. It is not a drawn out love story, nor an action pact racer, but a page turner just the same. I Truely enjoyed this audio book and would recomend it for Everyone.

    Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating memory - the day her mother was killed. When she and her "stand-in-mother," a fierce-hearted black woman named Rosaleen, are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily enters a secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women.

    Overall

    Well there are really not words to describe this. It is simply a wonderful book that really makes you think. The process of thought, and emotions, are so wonderfully portrayd in this book. It is true that a few parts may seem to have you thinking 'ok ok already, i want to know what happens next get on with it' but it's definatly worth it in the end, you truely get a feel for the charachters, and for the way things were. I would recomend this book for everyone.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Very Captivating Book"
    Overall

    Being a fan of fantasy, I very much enjoyed this Book, it was great. It had all the details that hold your interest. i never wanted to put it down! This Book doesn't have alot of in depth surprises around the corner, however the book is not lacking for it. The Charachters are easy to identify with and the story flows well.For readers like myself who simply want to enjoy a well told story, this one is a definate jewel and i can't wait for the next installment!
