    When humanity expanded beyond the safety of Earth to new stars and horizons, they never dreamed what dangers they would encounter there. When the alien juggernaut known as the Covenant declared holy war upon the fragile human empire, millions of lives were lost - but, millions of heroes rose to the challenge. In such a far-reaching conflict, not many of the stories of these heroes, both human and alien, have a chance to become legend.

    Exposed as the Second Dreamer, Araminta has become the target of a galaxywide search by government agent Paula Myo and the psychopath known as the Cat, along with others equally determined to prevent---or facilitate---the pilgrimage of the Living Dream cult into the heart of the Void. An indestructible microuniverse, the Void may contain paradise, as the cultists believe, but it is also a deadly threat. For the miraculous reality that exists inside its boundaries demands energy....

    I am a huge sci-fi drama fan and when I came across the Void series after listening to the other Peter F. Hamilton books. I listened to this book when it came out but I just relistened to the entire void series to hear them as one book.

    Dorian Gray, a handsome and narcissistic young man, lives thoughtlessly for his own pleasure. One day, after having his portrait painted, Dorian makes a frivolous Faustian wish: that he should always remain as young and beautiful as he is in that painting, while the portrait grows old in his stead.

    The wish comes true, and Dorian soon finds that none of his wicked actions have visible consequences. Realizing that he will appear fresh and unspoiled no matter what kind of life he lives, Dorian becomes increasingly corrupt. Only the portrait grows degenerate and ugly, a powerful symbol of Dorian's internal ruin.

    As a portrait painter I really listening to this book as I worked on a portrait. There were some real inspirational lines in the book that inspired me. This is a good read/ listen and you will enjoy it.

    The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas.

    Published in 1844, it is often considered one of the great thrillers of all time and, along with The Three Musketeers, Dumas' most popular work.

    Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmund Dantes is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Chateau d'If. After staging a dramatic escape, he sets out to discover the treasure of Monte Cristo and catch up with his enemies.

    Barnabas' Daughter says: "Incredible value"

    Story

    I just listened to the book for the second time in the past year. The second time through I picked up on more of the old English that I missed before. The narrator is great and its a low budget production since one can hear the pages being turned in the background. Regardless I strongly recommend it.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    I really enjoyed the first half of the book but I found part of it were way to long and drawn out. I made it 3/4th way through the book and then I stopped and moved on to another book. Maybe one day I will go back to it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    I first read this book in High School. Throughout the years I have listed to this book many times since it is one of my favorites. The story is great and its all viewed from the point of view of Ender. If you have not read this book, do so and then read/ listen to Ender's Shadow, the book about Bean Enders 2nd in command. These 2 books go well together. I have recommended this book many times to friends and I now recommend it to you.

    The Brotherhoods is the chilling chronicle of the shocking crimes of NYPD detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, notorious rogue cops convicted in April 2006 of the ultimate form of police corruption-shielding their acts behind their badges while they worked for the mob. Their crimes included participation in the murders of at least eight men, kidnapping, torture, and the betrayal of an entire generation of New York City detectives and federal agents

    Story

    The story was very interesting about 2 NY detectives who worked for the Mob. I found the storyline flowed well from the start of the investigation, the build up of the case and the trial. The narrator did a great job capturing all the characters voices especially the wise guys.
