    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    It got off to a slow start, but then hooked me. The story made some pretty big leaps, but for me it worked.

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    Story
    (1698)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Story

    Okay, this book has been on the shelf for a long time.
    I remember reading it in high school, read it again in college and once more mid 40's.
    Still have the paperback in the attic.

    The story is still great, technology is dated but who cares.

    What really got me was the narration. Best I've heard in the last dozen or so listens.

    Give this one a listen.

    You won't regret it

  • Snow Crash

    Story
    (2720)

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "This one takes a bit of listening to get into."

    Story

    There were a few times when I first started listening that I thought of moving on to another book. But, I stuck with it and it was worth the wait. The characters develop into personalities that you can root for or against, depending on your leaning. The idea of living inside of a machine, while not new, is done well. The bottom line is, I would recomend this one to people who like Bradbury and Heinlein.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    This book is yet another spellbinder and gives hope that the series will continue. My thanks Mr. Butcher.

  • The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1

    Story
    (1791)

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    David says: "mouth watering"
    "sherlock holmes - volume 1"
    Overall

    this is a must listen for anyone who is a fan of Arthur Conan Doyle!

    you might have heard abridged versions on the radio, but these blow those away.

    a very enjoyable listen
