    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    "Great Story - Terrible Narration"
    Overall

    This is a great story and I think that I would have enjoyed it much more had I read it. The narrator utilizes the most extreme southern accent for the lead character . I live in Mississippi and have not heard that accent for 40 years. It sounds like Foghorn Leghorn. Mr. Hill can do a good job, but he laid this one on a little too thick.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Would you try another book from Robert Galbraith and/or Robert Glenister?

    No


    What could Robert Galbraith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not sure. The characters were boring and uninteresting and the plot moved like molasses.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Glenister?

    No, his narration fit nicely with the plot. Again, boring.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I can think of.


    Any additional comments?

    I can understand why she would use a pseudonym for these books.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Only those who have read Shakespeare.


    What does Euan Morton bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    His reading brought the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think...and laugh a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    Christoper Moore writes some books which find humor in today's culture and others that deal with historical persons and literature.

    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To some I would. I would be embarrassed to recommend it to others.


    What other book might you compare Kiss the Dead to and why?

    The first half of the book relates to the style of the first 5 book in the series. No metaphysical sex. The second half regresses to her more current style.


    What about Kimberly Alexis???s performance did you like?

    She is great! No negatives.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Rated XXX


    Any additional comments?

    I get bored with Hamilton's sex scenes and up the speed of the playback through them. The detailed description is not needed for the story and is repetitive.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.
