    As the new story begins, Leeds and his "aspects" are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there's a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Brandon Sanderson and/or Oliver Wyman?

    I'm hooked on legion
    Even when skin deep was a really very very simple read I love the aspects.


    Would you recommend Legion: Skin Deep to your friends? Why or why not?

    It's a stand alone book
    No I wouldn't Because the solutions and explanations are to easy


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

    Great narrator


    Was Legion: Skin Deep worth the listening time?

    It was a break from Game of thrones
    JC makes it worth it


    Any additional comments?

    There's so much to explain as far as from a psychosis perspective what could happen to Leeds
    What if a 2 hr story explains the fall of Leeds into madness etc...
    I feel a 3rd story coming

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

    Absolutely
    He's great, I didn't know anything about him until the ocean at the end of the lane
    He's the rare kind who is a terrific narrator as well


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

    Yes, because the attention span of a toddler is hrs on end
    (That's sarcasm)

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a perfect blend of drama/violence/fantasy


    What other book might you compare A Clash of Kings to and why?

    Game of thrones/see above


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

    He continues to create every voice imaginableThis still takes getting used to, I almost want him to just Use his normal tone and it would be a great listen


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

    Battle of lies


    Any additional comments?

    Again a lot of plotting and adventure/Weird fantasy I never saw coming, but coming this far there's no turning back

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    What made the experience of listening to A Game of Thrones the most enjoyable?

    Dotrice, at first I wasn't sure of all the character voice changes but he makes it work. There must be hundreds of characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    The unknown, the mystery of those possible problems coming from beyond the wall
    The fantasy that leaves you waiting for it to happen


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

    Haven't done any yet, but....
    I can't believe he's the same guy who plays the Russian coach in "the cutting edge" movie


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

    This is really extreme dramatics with surprises and violence
    Not for kids


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to a part of the story and seeing the same part online is fun, you can do this without spoiling the rest of the book

    It has been 40 years since the publication of this classic science-fiction novel that changed the way we look at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man adventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.

    What did you like best about this story?

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

    No
    The performance was great, you can tell when they recorded separate scenes especially when HAL speaks, that doesn't ruin it, the effect is that it makes it creepy


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

    My reaction is asking for the sequel on audible immediately
    And buying the kindle version


    Any additional comments?

    I had know idea that the story was this cool
    Pretty cool that it was written yrs before landing on the moon and space flight in general

    What would have made The Haunting of Hill House better?

    A real story
    I was very disappointed


    What was most disappointing about Shirley Jackson’s story?

    Really everything
    Plot, the main characters
    The most annoying person was the doctors wife


    Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne – was your favorite?

    Eleanor was great
    But she was an empty character as well, and crazy before being asked to go the hill house


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Lots of disappointment
    No anxiety, no fear,
    It's a shame but I wanted it to be over


    Any additional comments?

    Reviews by other listeners are usually dead on but not this one
    Dunne was great but that's it
    I wish I had better feelings toward this

    In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property - complete with boathouse and swimming pool - and the price were too good to pass up. This is the shocking true story of an American dream that turned into a nightmare beyond imagining for the Lutz family, who were forced to flee their new home in terror.

    Imagining it happen at my house, my family lives on LI,

    14 by clines
    He is in elite company as far as I'm concerned


    If you could give The Amityville Horror a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Scaring your pants off wherever you are


    Any additional comments?

    Fast good read
    I researched some the events and some were impossible to happen, but that just makes the mystery more real, right?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    What did you like best about this story?

    The adventure, you become very involved with all the characters, good and just pure evil equally


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    Everything
    He fits the scene, I don't know where they find these narrators but they are fantastic


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

    I listened for long stretches but 40hrs 55 min speaks for itself


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was more of a tie in with Ellens curses
    The mystery behind jacks father was lacking
    This is epic and I would strongly suggest to anyone to give it a listen
