    Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    If you could sum up Hammered in three words, what would they be?

    Of all the series, this has been my favorite. The history of the characters that unfolds was wonderful.

    Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of World War II, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. It wasn’t his imagination; the wired woman can see into the future and use her knowledge to twist the present. In fact, Marsh soon discovers that the Nazis are running missions with people who have special powers....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Nazi's, magic, and phyco-science, who would have thought you could go wrong? This was decent but got really bizarre. Found myself 3/4 way through wanting to stop but pushed forward to see the ending.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Where does American Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For the most part this was really good book. But toward the end if became a little boring. I still enjoyed getting an indepth look into what those who sacrifice for our country go through.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    What did you love best about Hounded?

    I really enjoyed this book. The author seems to have done his research into the panthion of gods and Irish culture. Also the character development is great, after some time you could identify with the character in todays society.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    What did you love best about Tricked?

    This story was not as as good as the previous but still a good listen. If you have read/listened to the series then by all means this is one to continue the saga.

    Would you consider the audio edition of John Carter in 'A Princess of Mars' to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version so cannot comment on this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is dated in regards to the sci-fi of today, but still offers a good listen. The story is pretty good but seems lacking in some places. The author goes into great detail at one point but then will move the story along skipping what seems to be relevant material. Overall though I still say it was worth the listen.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Scott did a good job with the material at hand. Still kind of dry.

  • Edison: A Life of Invention

    (12)

    Armed with unprecedented access to Edison's workshop diaries, notebooks, and letters, Israel brings fresh insights into how the inventor's creative mind worked. For the first time, much attention is devoted to his early family life in Ohio and Michigan, where the young Edison honed his entrepreneurial sense and eye for innovation as a newsstand owner and editor of a weekly newspaper. These experiences underscore the inventor's later successes with new resonance and pathos.

    Michael says: "Worst narration ever"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This was a very technical look at Edison's inventions, not so much about the man himself. I had recently read a book on Nikola Tesla and found it fascinating, so I wanted to find out more about his rival, Thomas Edison. To my disappointment, the author never mentions then name Tesla, much less the war of currents. This was a defining major event in both inventors lives, it is why we use AC electricity today. It is what shaped the electrical industry the world, and no mention. Also the author was very biased toward Edison. I am glad I listened but could have cut out about 2/3 of the book and got the same amount information.
