    In this sparkling tale, young merchant Abdullah purchases a magic carpet - and soon finds that the enchanted rug is none too agreeable. But despite the carpet's cranky demeanor, Abdullah must rely on its help to rescue a princess from a wicked djinn.

    What did you love best about Howl's Moving Castle?

    The style of the author flows and the the stories remind me something out of the Arabian Nights. Nothing is what it seems and yet it is simple...clever and full of charm. This is the kind of tale you expect to read near a fire.


    What other book might you compare Howl's Moving Castle to and why?

    Arabian Nights


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

    Easy to listen to with no distractions.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I usually like to prolong the experience I am not of the same mind as Edgar...I don't believe a book must be read in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a charming book and will not leave you with disappointment in either the story or the characters.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Where does Cold Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Cold Days ranks in the top 5% of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Better than Jack Campbell, Orson Scott and the rest. Keep James Marsters as the Narrator. Marsters is the cream of the crop for narrators.


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    Nope, I usually wouldn't read something like this but the television show caught my interest and then when they canceled I read all the book 1 through 11 in like 2 months and then.....


    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    I like the internal dialogue of Dresden but I think the Cat was good....


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

    Many moments got me laughing, shocked, and on the tip of my seat wondering...


    Any additional comments?

    Keep on writing this series Mr. Butcher and lets keep James Marsters...I would even pay more for Marsters like $10.00 more if I had a choice between to narrators.

    Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet--and himself--in harm's way. An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears.

    Where does Invincible: The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say that Invincible: The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier ranks among the top 10% of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. This is good storytelling that has science fiction, physics, intrigue, and politics all rolled up neatly keeping the reader interested all the time.


    What other book might you compare Invincible: The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 to and why?

    I can't compare this to another series. To me this is very original. This isn't like Old Mans War or Star Trek or Star Wars.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    Christian Rummel is able to change his voice without distracting you and also doing it accents and female and male tones...It makes me wonder how he remembers the different voices because some characters don't talk very much like once or twice a book and yet they match.


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

    No, I was constantly anticipating different things so it was more like that.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next book.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Would you listen to Ender's Game again? Why?

    I would not listen to Ender's Game again because I like to hear other new stories and books.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending of Ender's Game was surprising. I think the very conclusion was not polished and was rushed to give the reader or listener some answers which Mr. Card would later make more books. Many of the comments about his other books give me concern..

    such as broken timelines and recommendations to not read the books in the order in which Mr. Card wrote them. Some readers stated that the books felt like short stories put together.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was not the conclusion to the formic wars (I will not go in depth on that because it would ruin it) but on Ender dealing with the constant unfair treatment at the battle school and his ability to lead "Dragon" to victories even in the face of overwhelming odds.


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

    When Ender went back to Earth and talked with his Sister.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm very hesitant to read anymore of his books. People seem to like them but what I see seems too disappointing. I'm not going to read to find out what happens like seeking answers I want to be entertained not disappointed because the author can't do as well as he did the first time...

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.
