    On the technological, decadent world of Proton, someone was trying to destroy Stile, serf and master Gamesman. His only escape lay in Phaze, a world totally ruled by magic. Soon he learned that his alternate self had already been murdered, and that he was next. On Proton, his fate depended on winning the great Games. On Phaze, he must master magic to survive. And if he used any magic at all, his friends were determined to kill him at once!

    Jerry says: "Favorite Piers Anthony Series"
    "Great book! The reader takes some getting used to."
    Overall

    I would give it 5 stars if it had a better reader. He has no range of voices. They all sound pretty much the same. The story is an interesting mix of Sci-Fi and Fantasy and I enjoyed it very much and will continue the series in spite of the reader.

But his time is short and before his life ends he's got one final mission: Find and destroy Sanctuary, a fabled haven for those that chose to defy the system. But when Logan meets and falls in love with Jessica, he begins to question the very system he swore to protect and soon they're both running for their lives.

    What did you like best about Logan's Run? What did you like least?

    This would be a good book to read, I think. The narration was done poorly. Mr. Wyman did a great job voicing the different characters. When it came to the narrative, however, he couldn't have been any more boring. Slow, sleepy, monotone. Even the action parts had no emotion whatsoever!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Oliver Wyman’s performances?

    No

    2057. Humanity has raised exploiting the solar system to an art form. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclear-powered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. And they're good at it. The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    Story

    If you think that this is a book about the fascinating exploration of an alien artifact, you would be mistaken. If you think that this is a book about the crew who investigates an alien artifact and the alien artifact is just a background to their story then, unfortunately, you would be correct. It was mostly boring and really only got better towards the end.

    On Stranger Tides follows the exploits of John Chandagnac, who travels to the new world after the death of his puppeteer father to confront his uncle, who has apparently made off with the family fortune. During the voyage, he befriends Beth Hurwood and her father, Benjamin Hurwood, an Oxford professor. Before they arrive at their destination, their ship is waylaid by Blackbeard and his band of pirates.

    Derek B. says: "I have waited for this audiobook for years!"
    "Great book, not impressed with the reader"
    Overall

    Maybe it is because I just listened to a novel read by David Suchet. (He is the Master of voices!) I thought Pinchot voiced the different characters fairly well, it was his reciting of the narrative that was uninspired. He sounded like he was bored most of the time. Maybe it's just me. Great book though.

    When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo - an unhatched dragon egg - fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle.

    Janet says: "Dragon Riders of Pern meet Master and Commander"
    "Tedious"
    Overall

    This book would be more interesting if it was actually about aerial combat with dragons. Yes, the last hour involved some aerial combat, but, the bringing up baby story to get to that point was very tedious. I really don't care about how many cows Temeraire had for breakfast. I was hoping that the next book would continue the story about the war with Napoleon, but, apparently it doesn't.

  • Murder on the Orient Express: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

    Savor one of the most clever of Christie's suspenseful classics. An American businessman is stabbed to death aboard a luxury train, the Orient Express, snowbound in the middle of Europe. Nothing escapes the eagle eye and quick intelligence of the great Hercule Poirot, and clues abound. Sorting through a dozen perfectly respectable passengers, all suspects, Poirot is tenacious in his pursuit of the truth.

    Glenda Fuller says: "Great Story and Well Read"
    "Brilliant!"
    Overall

    David Suchet has got to be the best narrator I have ever listened to. His voice acting is superb and really makes this classic come to life.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    DJM says: "Good story from front to back"
    "The Comet takes too long to hit"
    Overall

    The beginning was very boring to me. I kept at it knowing that it had to get better after the comet hit. It did, but then, it ended way too quickly and some of the events were glossed over. Still, not a bad listen, could have been better...

    All the best ingredients are here: an idyllic cruise in an exotic setting, a beautiful young woman on her honeymoon, a shocking murder with suspects galore. Fortunately Hercule Poirot is on the scene, thanks to a cruise holiday on the River Nile, and he exercises all his "little grey cells" in probing the passengers' airtight alibis. This most challenging mystery is known to be the author's personal favorite.

    Ian says: "A fine Poirot mystery"
    "Brilliant!"
    Overall

    David Suchet has got to be the best narrator that I have ever heard. Just absolutely brilliant! P.S. The book is not bad as well...
