    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Nothing not to like in this series. There is humor, trash-talk in the face of certain death and, surprise! Monsters! I loved HP Lovecraft when I was younger, and these books really deliver. Don't miss them!

    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....

    Story

    I almost didn't buy this recording because of all the negative reviews. What a mistake that would have been! John Glover did an outstanding job of narrating this story. Yes, it's true that he's not James Marsters, but that did NOT diminish my enjoyment. Glover's voice is crisp, characters are easy to identify, and the story moves along with Jim Butcher's usual combination of magic throwdowns, "Aha!" moments and smartass remarks. I especially loved the insight into Dresden's character through his memories of his past. While "Ghost Story" is not the inexorable juggernaut "Changes" was, it is still a great listen. Five stars all around. Don't miss it!

  • A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"
    "What!?"
    Overall

    Tell me what has gotten into Roy Dotrice? He makes Danaerys Stormborn sound like a toothless old woman! I don't know if I can listen to the last half. As the book contains "Dragons" in the title, I presume I will have to endure a great deal of his terrible interpretation of a 14 year old girl. If it weren't for his otherwise interesting narration, I would quit now and just read the book.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Sittingduck says: "Detailed Koontz"
    "sorry, Dean"
    Overall

    This time you lose. Forever Odd was boring and pointless. I am a big DRK fan, but this one was a waste of an audible credit.

    One of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain is a masterpiece that is at once an enthralling adventure, a stirring love story, and a luminous evocation of a vanished America in all its savagery, solitude, and splendor.

    M. Dunn says: "Cold Mountain (Unabridged)"
    "Cold Mountain leaves me cold"
    Overall

    In short: I couldn't even finish it. The author's rendition was absolutely mind-numbing. In general, I find an author's reading of his own work to be beautiful and appropriate. Take, for example, Stephen King's reading of "The Dark Tower I, II and III" (since redone by Frank Muller) and John Berendt's fabulous job with "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", both of which were wonderfully done. However, Frazier's constant monotone and muttering were maddening, utterly destroying my appreciation of the lyrical poetry present in his written word.
    Sorry, Charles. Next time leave the reading to someone else.
