    The amazing Spider-Man launches into his most harrowing adventure as a trip to Florida turns into a deadly race to prevent disaster! The Lizard is wreaking havoc throughout the Everglades, as he seeks a cure for his dual identity as the reptilian villain and the human scientist Dr. Curt Connors -- the result of an experiment gone horribly wrong.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Story was written for kids with little consideration for adult readers and listeners.


    What was most disappointing about Diane Duane’s story?

    I expected a story worthy of the Spider-Man brand. Instead I got a rushed story tailored for children.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrator?

    The narraration was fine. Kept the reader engaged.


    Could you see Spider-Man: The Lizard Sanction being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    This story would not translate to the big sdcreen. Feels more like a cartoon than a two hour movie.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    I was so afraid that Brandon Sanderson would stop writing this series after taking on, and doing a magnificent job, the completion of the Wheel of Time after Robert Jordan's unfortunately passing but he came through! I must have listened to The Way of King's 6 times, wishing for a second book to answer some of the questions and tie together the loose ends. While this book doesn't completely do that it definitely forwards my beloved characters and continues to build the story. This book was AMAZING - I just hope he doesn't keep us waiting as long for the third! I want more of Caladon, Yezna, Shalon, Dalanar and the rest! I want to know what happened on the Day of Requeince, who all become new Knights Radiant and which of the characters are the Heralds that have walked the world for the last 4500 years! Please, Brandon, don't make us wait too long!!!!!!

    For generations, the dragonriders had dedicated their lives to fighting Thread, the dreaded spores that periodically rained from the sky to ravage the land. On the backs of their magnificent telepathic dragons they flew to flame the deadly stuff out of the air before it could reach the planet's surface. But the greatest dream of the dragonriders was to find a way to eradicate Thread completely, so that never again would their beloved Pern be threatened with destruction.

    I am a Pernese at heart and any time I get to visit my fantasy world is a treat! Anne has created a world for me to escape to and characters that feel like family! While I listen I talk to the characters that I know so well and feel their hopes as well as their fears. It's a place that will never be and will always be and I love every moment of it - especially the 9th pass where Robinton rules from behind F'lar and Lessa and the characters are so real! If you've ever loved dragons this is a series for you, where they are friends and companions and saviors not beasts!

    After his mother, the beloved Rebel Queen, is betrayed and murdered by her own faithless lords, young Maric becomes the leader of a rebel army attempting to free his nation from the control of a foreign tyrant. His countrymen live in fear; his commanders consider him untested; and his only allies are Loghain, a brash young outlaw who saved his life, and Rowan, the beautiful warrior maiden promised to him since birth.

On the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station---smoking ruins littered with bodies and unanswered questions.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    I have long been a fan of Stephen King, from the first book I read, Firestarter, collecting his books in hard copy for my library. His have always been books that take patience to begin as he builds his characters and sets the foundation for a fabulous plot but this one seemed to be lacking his usual flair. It was interesting and he did a nice job of continuing the story from the shining but it just didn't have the "umph" that his earlier books did.

    This was a wonderful story, in the way of Dean Koontz, a little creepy, a little horrible, and a lot surprising! He is a master of pulling together multiple stories and vanquishing evil! But who would have thought of holes in reality?

    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, who is worshiped by millions and hated by one twisted soul. His existence is under siege as a series of terrifying, enigmatic "messages" breaches the security systems of his Bel Air estate. The boxes arrive mysteriously, one by one, at Channing Manheim's compound. Manheim's security chief, ex-cop Ethan Truman, is used to looking beneath the surface of things. But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be.

    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    Would you listen to The Alloy of Law again? Why?

    Yes, and I have! This was a great way to continue the allamancer concept when we thought all had ended with Vin and Elend!


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

    Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are two of my most favorite narrators - Mr. Kramer has a fabulous talent for changing personalities with nothing but his voice!


    Any additional comments?

    As with so many of his books, it has so much going on that I learn something more of the story with each listen!

    Where does Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There is no way I can rank this among all the audiobooks I have listened to, there are just too many. What happened to just being able to type my own review rather than being limited to answering questions?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island?

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

    I listened to the other WhoDunnit, now if we could only find the middle one!


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

    yes
