I am extremely dyslexic and if it was not for audio books I probably would never read. I travel a lot and love to have a audio book playing

    Full of eerie elegance and the underlying mysterious spirit of Japanese culture, these four Japanese ghost stories are performed by award-winning author and storyteller Rafe Martin in his engaging and inimitable style. The collection begins with "The Boy Who Drew Cats", a tale about the power of faith in one's own creativity, and continues with "Kogi", a dream vision in which the listener becomes a whale.

    I really enjoyed the stories and the performance but the music that introduced each new story was way to loud and drowned out the narrator's voice.

    In this third audiobook in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she's just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    What would have made The Science of Discworld better?

    Parts of it were great like the short story of the wizards but the science portion I thought was a bit forced or was not well explained


    Has The Science of Discworld turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    There were two narrators Stephen Briggs was amazing as always but Michael Fenton Stevens was dry

    You think you know her story. You've read the Brothers Grimm, you've watched the Disney cartoons, you cheered as these virtuous women lived happily ever after. But the lives of real princesses couldn't be more different. Sure, many were graceful and benevolent leaders - but just as many were ruthless in their quest for power, and all of them had skeletons rattling in their royal closets.

    Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her.... But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses.

    The work begins with Lord Brahma dreaming the universe into being and from there unfolds an enthralling collection of interconnected tales that span the history of Hinduism. Here are brave princes, divine divas and demon kings, family feuds and epic battles, burning loves and lies, tragic deaths and glorious rebirths. There are tales about dancing elephants, peacock warriors and monkey armies, all narrated by Jackson himself with great character, warmth and wit. A novel for sophisticated listeners of all ages.

    There's an old saying: if you eat a live frog first thing each morning, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that it's probably the worst thing you'll do all day. Using "eat that frog" as a metaphor for tackling the most challenging task of your day, the one you are most likely to procrastinate on, but also the one that might have the greatest positive impact on your life, Eat That Frog! shows you how to zero in on these critical tasks and organize your day.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This was book was recommended by several people and I found it was a bit of a let down. I was expecting a book that truly changed how I thought but I felt like the author would tell you one thing, thing tell you to do something else that seem to counter what he just told you.


    What was most disappointing about Brian Tracy’s story?

    it seemed inconsistant with his message


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brian Tracy?

    he was ok just boring


    Did Eat That Frog! inspire you to do anything?

    I can save you time and money. The best lesson in this book is: Do the thing that you really don't want to do first and the rest of the day will be easier

    A posthumous recipient of the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, Marion Zimmer Bradley reinvented - and rejuvenated - the King Arthur mythos with her extraordinary Mists of Avalon series. In this epic work, Bradley follows the arc of the timeless tale from the perspective of its previously marginalized female characters: Celtic priestess Morgaine, Gwenhwyfar, and High Priestess Viviane.

    What made the experience of listening to The Mists of Avalon the most enjoyable?

    I loved how in depth the story went with these characters in most stories the author just focuses on Arthur in this we get to know several female leads around Arthur and how that affected his life.


    What other book might you compare The Mists of Avalon to and why?

    Can't think of a book but this was made into a movie a while ago, it of course is way better in book form


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

    no


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

    oh gosh no, this is a huge book and takes a while to get through


    Any additional comments?

    This is actually several books combined as one, but it is a great Arthur told from a different point of view. It is full of rich detail you are not sure who you are rooting for.
