    There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives. Then out of nowhere, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them....

    No matter what this seems to be the core. It may get amplified, or reduced by people and the situations their in, but this is the core string of it all.
    This gave me insight and understanding, and made me understand there are things I will never understand, into why after 20 years it has to end. And it made me laugh in the process.

    When Runnel leaves his mountain valley to head for the great city of the water mages, he has no idea of his own magical talents. But he soon finds that without meaning to, he complicates and then endangers the lives of everyone he comes to know and care about. For when it comes to magic, there are rules and laws, and the untrained mage-to-be must be careful not to tap into deep forces and ancient enmities. Otherwise, other people might end up paying the price for his mistakes.

    Story

    OSC has a good game plan with his Mither Mage series. I really enjoyed Lost Gate and Gate Theif, so followed it up with this novella. I'd like to see more. It's a good world he's creating, though I'd like to see more adult geared lines, following those people that started as teens with Ender and Alvin.

    Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

    Too convoluted and not enjoyable. I try to get through at least 3 chapters of any book since some take time to unfold, but with this there was no desire at all.

    In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, best-selling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own.

    Story

    I enjoy physics and cosmology but have no formal training. And I have an issue with String and M-theory- but this put it into perspective to where I still don't like string theory, I will tolerate M-theory, and I understand now why so many physicists want it to work.

    This is a great primer for anyone that enjoys these sorts of topics, and a good intro for those that think they might.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    OSC is an author I always come back to, and always look for his new releases. I enjoyed this story, and now look forward to The Gate Thief. I most appreciate OSC for the way he intertwines mystical, legend, and physics, science together. He also does an excellent job with characters and characterizations.

    When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful, an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again.

    Story

    I've read Mars and Venus, In the Bedroom, Diet, and now this. I guess if I read them all I should not have had to read this (-: I believe in a lot of what he says in all his books and about relationships, but he really does write more for female understanding. If more females would read and understand, or couples together then discuss, these books could save many troubles.
    As for this one, he gave me some information that has allowed me to forgive both her and myself, and will make it a little easier to move on. For that, the whole thing was worth it, But again, like most books in this vein, its there more for a woman to understand the mystery of herself.

    When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the solar system, the world reacted with awe, hope and fear. But the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, were peaceful traders and the world breathed a sigh of relief.

    Where does Live Free or Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Live Free or Die was fun and entertaining. The premise drew me in, the writing style is good, and The narrator is fantastic. This book made me buy the other two and listen in order. This is by far the best of the three, Followed by citadel. Hot gate seemed disjointed, almost like it was a "Had to do" book rather than final of the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tyler Vernon is a helluva guy- he is the guy you wish all these rich guys in the world actually were.


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

    Mark Boyett does a great job inflecting the different characters and bringing them to life. I will actually look at other books he's narrated and give them a look.


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

    This book drew me in immediately and caused me to purchase the other two before I finished this one.

    Considered by many to be the authoritative biography on Andrew Jackson, Robert Remini's examination reviews in depth the political career and personal life of one of the country's most memorable leaders. It is the definitive summary of a man who in turn defined an era, captured in a form that would appeal to both novice students and learned history buffs.

    "The abridged paperback"
    Overall

    The abriged paperback was very good. It portrayed a great era in American History and made Jackson come to life without too much overwhelming reading. I would love to read the entire anthology, but having read the single volume abridged version it is time to move on. I recommend this unabriged audio version since it the whole version Remini wrote and is THE authoriatative version on Jackson. His abridged version has made Jackson one of my favorite presidents to date.
