    John Carter, Prince of Helium, has been imprisoned for a Martian year, his wife in another cell - alive or dead, he doesn't know. In this continuation of the saga of the amazing world of Barsoom, the love story of Carter and Dejah Thoris - the red-skinned, oviparous princess - unfolds. Like all the tales in the series, fantasy and adventure combine in a style as malleable as dreams, exotic and dangerous and unending.

    Nathan says: "Fantastic"
    "Simple and straight forword."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The ending wasn't enough, and I would have like there to have been more focus on the relationship bewteen John and his wife.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs? Why or why not?

    If I was feeling like listening in on a world where evil is always beaten and the hero always overcomes whatever in the way. Than yeah I'd listen ERB


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was mid-level I've heard worse, his accent did get a little old, and he failed to but a lot varations in the script


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    sure


    Any additional comments?

    about all of the fight scenes felt recycled.

    Twelve-year-old Eon has been training for years. His intensive study of Dragon Magic, based on Oriental astrology, involves two kinds of skills: sword-work and magical aptitude. He and his master hope that he will be chosen as a Dragoneye - an apprentice to one of the 12 energy dragons of good fortune.

    But Eon has a dangerous secret. He is actually Eona, a 16-year-old girl who has been masquerading as a 12-year-old boy for the chance to become a Dragoneye.

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

    It wasn't a complete wast of time, but I don't think I'd listen to it again if I could go back. I understand that Eon was in a hard spot, but honestly I can only listen to so much winnying before I'm just annoyed.
    The courtly wit and banter that could have add some much the book fell flat. The book is missing something, I really don't I'll bother with the sequal.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't have a problem with her in the beginning but she started to wear on me the longer I listened. Maybe is was how it was written but the narrator didn't help Eon sounds like a winy little girl most of the time, at times the narrator even gave her a differant voice. But the worst part is listening to the narrator's mouth noises, and you could hear the creck of a chair.


    Do you think Eon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    sure if you liked the first one.

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III may be the son of the brave leader of the mighty Viking tribe the Hairy Hooligans, but he certainly doesn’t feel very heroic. When Hiccup and the other boys his age are challenged to pick baby dragons from the dragon nursery, Hiccup actually manages to catch a small one. But now how will he train his stubborn new pet?

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

    I seen the movie first and thought it was awsome so I picked up the audio thinking it would be even better but no it's not. Just about everything is different and not in a good way.


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

    I love Gerard Doyle he's one of my favorites, he did a wonderful job with the dragons and set the right tone for the style it was writen in.


    Any additional comments?

    Toothless is really annoying!!
