    In this prequel to The Sword of Shannara, in which many details of the Four Lands' history are revealed, Druids, horrified by the misuse of magic, have eschewed it in favor of science. But Bremen the Druid studies magic, and becomes an outcast on its account. Bremen discovers that an invincible army of trolls are fast conquering all that lay to their south. Before them come the Nazgul-like Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who have fallen prey to the dark arts.

    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    Would you listen to Beyond Belief again? Why?

    Yes. The emotional roller coaster was amazing. I left the book feeling close to the writer and the other people in the Sea Org.


    Which character – as performed by Sandy Rustin – was your favorite?

    All of them

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Would you listen to The Hobbit again? Why?

    Yes. The story is deep and wonderful. Performance is excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance is excellent but people should understand that the style is a little different from the American style we are used to.

  • Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Kristina says: "MUST READ/LISTEN"

    What did you love best about Killing Kennedy?

    In the book we as the readers/listeners really get a chance to relive not only the moments of JFK'S death and immediately after, but we also have the opportunity to experience his entire presidency.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Kennedy?

    For me the most memorable moment of the book was right after the president was shot. I felt as if I was with Jackie. Being able to feel her pain and the terror that was in her. I have to say it brought on more emotions then any other book I have read.


    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Bill being Bill.


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

    Cry


    Any additional comments?

    I am a lover of history. I hope that millions will read/listen to this book and allow themselves to become part of the story. The way Bill writes can allow normal people to truly understand the magnitude of who JFK was and what his death means to us all even in 2012.
