    What made the experience of listening to Owl Moon the most enjoyable?

    My daughter is both calmed and completely absorbed by this book. Nothing else does that except for blueberries for sal or the snowy day. Jane Yolen has definitely risen to the heights of children's storytelling and I can only be grateful!


    What about Jane Yolen’s performance did you like?

    her sense of timing combined with her soothing tones.


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

    hah! it's only 8 minutes. Unless you have a one year-old I'd say yes.

    From worldwide best selling author Daniel Silva, praised by Newsday for "bringing new life to the international thriller," The Kill Artist is a taut and elegantly structured novel about a reluctant hero and his mission to destroy an old enemy and preserve international peace.

    What did you like best about The Kill Artist? What did you like least?

    I thought the main character was fascinating, but the story itself didn't keep my attention and devolved into a misanthropic blah.


    Would you recommend The Kill Artist to your friends? Why or why not?

    just not fresh enough to recommend.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    if it were updated to reflect more current trends in movie heroines, probably.

  • Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really liked


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next Cassandra Clare book.


    What aspect of Amanda Ronconi’s performance would you have changed?

    Can't even remember it.


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

    The urge to put it down about a third of the way through and never pick it up again.

    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....

    Would you try another book from Kevin Hearne and/or Luke Daniels?

    I thought the first book in this series was funny, not the most well written of books but still enjoyable. Great world, fun concept, interesting characters. But by the time I got to the third book I'd started cringing as each new plot point was solved by some festering act of chance and the hero just kept wandering around wringing his hands as he caused a ridiculous amount of mayhem simply because he wasn't smart enough (and you'd think after 2,000 years he would be) to think his way out of the problems.

    I recommend highly that you stop after the first one, and if you can definitely halt before you get to the third installment.


    What was most disappointing about Kevin Hearne’s story?

    that the character kept just stumbling forward without any direction, rhyme or reason. Also the complete lack of accountability or morality for the actions of the main characters in the book.


    Could you see Hounded being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Unfortunately.

  • A Discovery of Witches

    Story

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Barbara says: "A feast for the mind and imagination"
    "suprisingly lovely"
    Overall

    I was very surprised by this novel. First by the detailed historical perspective, then by the sweet romance and finally by the suspense. Sometimes I wanted Diana to show more of the backbone she had at the beginning of the book after she falls in love, but she's a strong, interesting character and Harkness does a great job of weaving science, history, magic and suspense into one enthralling story. Plus, Jennifer Ikeda is simply amazing, I want to see what other books she's narrated because she does an incredible job shifting effortlessly between an austrialian, scottish, brittish and american accents.
