    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Chris says: "Finally, a modern day fantasy that really hits the"

    If you could sum up Hounded in three words, what would they be?

    Hillarious, Geeky, Fun


    What other book might you compare Hounded to and why?

    I don't think I can compare this book with many out there. It's like porn for geeks.


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

    Haven't listened, but want to.


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

    Yes, and I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book.. and ALL of the rest. It's worth it.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

    Jennifer says: "Great story, not thrilled with production"

    If you could sum up Atlas Shrugged in three words, what would they be?

    Deep, Complete, Memorable


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The depth in which Ayn Rand takes apart human spirit while building it up at the same time. I was actually angry at the world at a few points in this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Who is John Galt?

  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Ernest Cline
    • Narrated By Wil Wheaton

    Story
    (10923)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."
    "It's like a flashback and flash forward all in one"

    What did you love best about Ready Player One?

    The 80's nostalgia really got to me, in a good way. I knew almost everything they were talking about throughout the story. It was awesome!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Og, hands down. If he isn't the embodiment of Woz then you people need to read more!


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    He was pretty good. Gotta give it to him. Would have liked to hear a bit more difference in his tones, but overall, pretty good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Don't want to give anything away... but reading files has never been so moving...
