    This is a great fantasy book, even for someone who is not a fan of the game or of Blizzard.

    The battle scene that was the true climax of the book, won't go into detail but it gets graphic.

    Yes, I went thru it very quickly and had a simply great time enjoying it.

    What did you like best about World of Warcraft: Stormrage? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the lore but the detail was a little too much, it actually took away from the pacing of the story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The characters involved were very memorable from the lore, the detail about the odd enemy took away from it.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Stormrage was a great character, hence the basis for him to be the main character.


    Was World of Warcraft: Stormrage worth the listening time?

    Once again, I felt like this was a bit of a miss in the series and was much happier with Knaak's Wolfheart.

    For the poor, hardworking citizens of the Confederacy's fringe worlds, the Guild Wars have exacted a huge toll. Swayed by the promise of financial rewards, a new batch of recruits joins the fight. Eighteen-year-old Jim Raynor, full of testosterone and eager to make things right at home, ships off to boot camp and finds his footing on the battlefield, but he soon discovers that the official mission is not what he's really fighting for.

    Action packed with a great driving story line that keeps you enjoying the story. You don't need to be a fan of the game to enjoy this listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tychus Findlay, the definition of a bad ass in every aspect of the word.


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

    He is amazing, he embodies the characters perfectly. Even down to the most hardened marine!


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

    Expendable Three (pre-movie production)

    Jim Gaffigan is a regular on the late-night talk show circuit and an in-demand actor. Gaffigan's talent was recognized, and soon he was making appearances on The Ellen Show, Ed, Law and Order, Sex and the City, and That '70s Show. During this time, he released four CDs of his stand-up on his own label and worked in films, with small roles in Three Kings, Road Trip, and Igby Goes Down. Recorded live in August 2004 at Giggles Comedy Club in Seattle.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Pale?

    Once again, Hot Pockets!


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

    This might be one of the best stand up recordings of the year it was released. It's like the Irish version of Chris Rock's Bigger, Louder, Blacker.


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

    Ever thought Hot Pockets were funny? You will now!

    Gaffigan has proven himself a major talent in stand-up, acting, and writing. As approachable as he is edgy, he's responsible for some of the funniest and most memorable moments in recent comedy and has seen huge success with his first two albums - Doing My Time and Beyond the Pale. King Baby captures his clever, quiet style and features the signature jokes you'd expect, on topics ranging from bowling to bacon. This is an hour of Jim at his hilarious best.

    You know him as the guy who rips everyone apart at the Comedy Central Roasts. Now listen to the follow-up album to Greg Giraldo's amazing debut Good Day To Cross A River. Recorded in front of a raucous hometown crowd in New York City, Giraldo laments America's childhood obesity epidemic, explains why he takes umbrage with the term "happily married," and shares his favorite "only in New York" moments. Packed with unique insights only Giraldo can conjure up, Midlife Vices is sure to please.

    Where does Midlife Vices rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's near the top, not only was Greg one of the smartest comedians out there (a Harvard law school graduate) but one of the sharpest comedians. He was one of those people the community will miss.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Greg, main and only actor and he steals the show everytime.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His inflection, his real thoughts, his voice that breaths life into his own jokes. Just wouldn't be the same if someone else was doing it.


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

    It wouldn't be fair to one of his last recording to pick just one part, the whole thing moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love good, raunchy, smart and sharp humor you will listen to this more than once. A true classic.

    This album is a recording of Mike Birbiglia’s Off-Broadway play Sleepwalk With Me, a comic memoir of true life events revolving around his life-threatening sleep disorder. Birbiglia weaves a story as compelling as it is hysterical. It’s a story of heartbreak and denial, of incidents and escalating accidents that culminate with a death-defying leap. On the Sleepwalk With Me Live! album, Birbiglia invites listeners to take this leap with him.

    Of course, he has reached a level of awkwardness that makes him so funny and relatable!


    What did you like best about this story?

    How he turns personal tragedy into some of the funniest material out there. I hope that one day I can weave my stories in the same fashion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Think of your worst night terror and then make someone laugh at your pain, genius.


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

    I enjoyed the stories involving his brother, I was moved to laughter. This was a common occurrence, I'm very happy to say.

    Recorded at the Skirball Theater in New York City, New in Town shines a spotlight on the thoughts and feelings of writer (Saturday Night Live) and stand-up comedian John Mulaney, a pleasant, nearly 30-year-old man who enjoys making fun of himself and others. Mulaney tackles such red-hot topics as french fries, Law & Order, and his bygone partying days. Through his stories, listeners will follow as Mulaney ages from a nervous and dishonest child to a still nervous and dishonest adult.

    What did you like best about this story?

    His story that the CD is named after. Won't give any of it anyway but it will stick with you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Same one that involves the title, the way he describes it and sets the scene, is perfect. He's someone to take notes on.


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

    Laugh and very hard and very often.

    Check out his other stand up, called the Top Part. Another great recording.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    What did you love best about Matterhorn?

    It was very hardcore and gritty, the words were graphic and left you feeling what they were going thru!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Matterhorn?

    The start of the book involving a leech and a certain soldier, made me cringe....Going to leave it at that.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Grit, he can reach that deep gravely tone of voice that some of these hardened soldiers were probably like back then after being in the jungles for months on end.


    If you could rename Matterhorn, what would you call it?

    True Grit.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for the faint of heart but an amazing tail.
