    Bobby Dollar is an angel - a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby’s wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own - pride, anger, even lust. But his problems aren’t all his fault. Bobby can’t entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he’s not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions.

    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

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

    Luke Daniels is currently my favorite Narrator. He is easy to listen to and always does a awesome job. He's really good at voices.

    This is Book 2 of Terms of Enlistment. If you enjoyed book 1 you will enjoy this one as well. I'm usually not into space adventure books,"NOT A STAR WARS FAN" but, I really enjoy this series and really want Marko the author to hurry up and put out another book to the series.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    All that needs to be said is it is defiantly worth the credit and that you will LOVE this book. The only regret I have, is I wish I would of waited until there were more books to the series out. I can't wait till the next book.

    The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.

    I love the narrator. I have listened to numerous books he has narrated and he never disappoints. The story is about a young man that lives on earth and the planet is defiantly not the world we know it to be. Well, the young man enlist in the military hoping to get into the navy and get off the destructive planet. This book takes off a little slow but by the end of it you will defiantly want more.

    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....

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Thank you Ernest Cline and Will Wheaton. I haven't picked up a book in over a decade and when I did its only because I had to because of some school requirements. But, a co-worker recommended that I listen to this book and it changed my life. It opened up a whole new world for me. This book was magical for me. Since listening to this book a year ago. I have just finished listening to my 21st book. Thats right the guy who hated to read and had not picked up a book in over 10 years listened to and read 21 books in one year. Its all because this was my first Audible book. If I would of listen to any other book first. I would not be sitten here writing this. It's like a high that I keep chasing. I keep listening to books trying to get the feeling that this one gave me. So, take my advice. If you grew up in the 80's its a must read. YOUR WELCOME

    Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    I don't know why I got this book but I'm glad I did. I never got a book with a women narrator but she nailed it. I'm not really into the zombie books but this one is different, you will see. Plus I'm from Texas and I only live a hour from Louisiana. So the southern accent the narrator has made it comforting and easy to listen to.

    I've been told to go to Hell more times than I can count. But this time I'm actually going. My name's Bobby Dollar, sometimes known as Doloriel, and of course, Hell isn't a great place for someone like me - I'm an angel. They don't like my kind down there, not even the slightly fallen variety. But they have my girlfriend, who happens to be a beautiful demon named Casimira, Countess of Cold Hands. Why does an angel have a demon girlfriend? Well, certainly not because it helps my career.

    What was most disappointing about Tad Williams’s story?

    It didn't measure up to the first book. Yes, I did enjoy the book but I expected more.


    What three words best describe George Newbern’s voice?

    Entertaining, Good,


    Could you see Happy Hour in Hell being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes I could see this made into a movie but it never will be unless his next books to this series is better then this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good listen. To me it was barley worth the credit, but it was worth the credit. I hated that he is so obsessed with his demon lady. I mean come on she is a demon and he is a angel. You know that he's going through all kinds of hell and she will probably just screw him over cause its in her nature. I loved the first book. This book not so much.
