    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    I've been a fan of Asimov since my teen years. This was an enjoyable listen, but came across as a little dated. Not (all) in the technology, Asimov future seeing still stands up. But in the language and casual words of the characters. All in all, enjoyable, but not amazing.

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Meloney says: "Brilliant"

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

    I'm trying to find out.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Peter V. Brett? Why or why not?

    Maybe... its the narrator I am struggling with. I am not sure on the story yet.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pete Bradbury?

    Anyone else. Luke Daniels?


    Was The Warded Man worth the listening time?

    Not yet.


    Any additional comments?

    To much mumbling, breathy, over emoted narration. I had to change the settings on my car stereo to the 'voice' setting, turn it way up, and focus on what he is saying to try to keep up. Its a lot of work.

  • Hexed: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 2

    Story
    (6072)

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hexed the most enjoyable?

    Luke Daniels and a Great story made me want to be the main character.


    What other book might you compare Hexed to and why?

    The Sookie Stackhouse series (True Blood). They both have a vast world of intermixed magic, and a good sense of humor. But I love the way this writer has resolved the magic worlds to co-exist.

    And, those Dianna Gabledon (how ever you spell her name) books about that Jamie guy and the stones some chick fell into and went to the past (my wife loves that series) but without all the emo relationship. Or breathy panting sex scenes describing tight rear ends. There is some sex, and some descriptions... but maybe written from a guys perspective? (err... duh)


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Fluid, with enough silly characterization (but done well) to make it fun. Also... so important... he is VERY easy to understand. I am considering returning another audiobook because I cant understand what the reader is saying. Luke adds character to the... err... characters... but does so in a clear and well spoke voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Favorite book I have listened to in a long long time. I am committed to listening to the rest of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I HIGHLY recommend it. But, in fairness, my wife isn't sold on them yet. She thinks the talking dog is silly. But don't listen to her. These books are amazing.

    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    Would you try another book from Robert T. Kiyosaki and/or Tim Wheeler?

    No.


    What other book might you compare Rich Dad Poor Dad to and why?

    No frame of reference.


    Did Tim Wheeler do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. Good performance.


    Did Rich Dad Poor Dad inspire you to do anything?

    Not yet. It started too... Right from the beginning, I could see patterns in my own life that were causing my problems. But change requires more than listening to a book.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope. If I every go back to finish it, I may change my mind.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "A different book for me"

    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    The frank hilarious stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again, the frank hilarious stories.


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

    No, first time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Umm... add the fortune cookie phrase... "in Bed"?


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a great book. Usually I am a fiction fan, but occasionally listen to a bio. Very funny. Some good life lessons. I am not going to go so far as to say it was life changing and inspirational. But it made me happy. Everyday I listened to it.
