    What disappointed you about Cujo?

    The whole thing. I remember reading this as a teen, but i don't remember it being so awful. That goes to show you teens have poor judgement. There was so much written in this novel that was completely unnecessary. If all that was removed, it would have been a very clever short story. King could have written less about the things that didn't add to the story line and more about things that would, and then It could have made a good novel. But in the end, the part about the dog was good and the only god part of the book.


    Has Cujo turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. not at all. I love these types of books, I just need to be more selective with Stephen King's novels.


    What about Lorna Raver’s performance did you like?

    I thought she was wonderful given what she was reading. I'm suprised she didn't sound as bored as I was hearing it. I think that speaks very well to her performance.


    What character would you cut from Cujo?

    All of those sales and advertising exects. And the bloody vomit cereal. I mean really?


    Any additional comments?

    You must really LOVE Steven King to get this book.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Would you try another book from Rick Riordan and/or Nick Chamian?

    I love everything Rick Riordan has written and so has my son. The stories are clever and brilliant as well as being current with the aspect of today's living. But with this narrator, I could't even make it through 10 minutes of the Audio book. So, Rick...YES. Nick...NO!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I can't honestly tell you. I'm going to have to buy the book and give it a read to know how the story goes. I'm sure it's great.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Chamian?

    I would have preferred Joshua Swanson as he was the one who narrated the entire Heroes of Olympus series thus far. For an audio book, the narrator is the most important part of the entertainment value, like in TV or movies. I know I would find it unbelievable to see Madonna play Wonder Woman. I only hope everything is well in Joshua's life and there have been no tragedies to have prevented him from making this performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Please, please, please producers and directors of audio books. Please don't change narrators mid series.

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    Story
    (345)

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Where does The Time Traveler's Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved everything about this book. The story line was tricky to keep in place, but the writer did it perfectly.


    What about Maggi-Meg Reed and Christopher Burns ’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed listening to Maggi-Meg's portion more than Christopher's portion. She made much more of her character. I believed she was Clare. I was convinced of it. She made a remarkable performance. As for Christohper, he was less believeable. There were times in which I thought he was reading as a news caster or a game show host, and then there were times I could hear Henry in his voice. His performance did not distract me from the rest of the book.


    If you could take any character from The Time Traveler's Wife out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would have to be Clare. I am a military spouse, so I can see myself through her. The unknowing and the uncertainty.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about a true love that survives anythng. Something that is unconditional and where time is the only thing that matters.
