    Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

    What made the experience of listening to Kenobi the most enjoyable?

    The Actions of the main characters outside of Kenobi were not logical at all.


    Has Kenobi turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will still read/listen


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The listing part was ok, just illogical actions and dialogue from some of the characters.

    1943. The supernatural alchemy for the ultimate weapon, encoded in an ancient biblical text, has fallen into the hands of the most ruthless secret society known to man---the Nazi SS. Present Day.

    What would have made The 34th Degree better?

    Actually talk about the title more, the 34th degree. He could have taken out much of the dialogue that had no relevance to the story.


    What was most disappointing about Thomas Greanias’s story?

    This book starts off promising to be a good Science Fiction or Thriller Novel but quickly turns into a alternative history book about the Nazi's and Italy. It just happens to feature a guy that has the 33rd degree and that's as far as it really goes.


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

    Jeffrey Kafer


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 34th Degree?

    To numerous to write about

    Ignis Glace is a war-torn world of fire and ice. Tidally-locked to its tiny red sun, one side of the planet bakes while the other side is forever frozen. Known as Sunside and Nightside, these two wastelands are bordered by a narrow inhabitable region known as Twilight. Humans and mechs battle for control of their world, even while a third player approaches the game: the Skaintz Imperium. Once the aliens strike, no world is ever the same.

    If you could sum up Mech 3: The Empress in three words, what would they be?

    Teamwork always Wins


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mech 3: The Empress?

    The Sacrafice of the two that are one


    What does Mirron Willis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great depth of character interpretations and a voice that can hold a listener to a story like the great James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman.


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

    What makes us Human


    Any additional comments?

    I want to see a MECH 4!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Critics have compared her work to that of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, but J. California Cooper has a warm, witty style that’s definitely her own. Each of her short stories is a gem of downhome wisdom, polished with a bit of gossip, some heartbreak, and lots of humor.

    Most Alice Walker books

    Sten had fully expected to die in a blaze of glory, taking his Emperor's greatest foe with him. Instead he was a slave laborer in a P.O.W. camp deep in the heart of enemy territory. But sitting out the action had never been Sten's style. And now that the war was building to a climax, the Eternal Emperor needed him more than ever. Not even the toughest prison in the known universe could keep Sten from his mission . . .

    Ptolemy Grey is 91 years old and has been all but forgotten - by his family, his friends, even himself - as he sinks into a lonely dementia. His grand-nephew, Ptolemy's only connection to the outside world, was recently killed in a drive-by shooting, and Ptolemy is too suspicious of anyone else to allow them into his life, until he meets Robyn, his niece's 17-year-old lodger and the only one willing to take care of an old man at his grandnephew's funeral.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Old People Turn into Chores For The Young"

    Overall

    Walter Mosley has a true hit here. He really brought the reader or listerner into the story to understand Mr Grey's life. Good Job

    The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. But the Sith have disturbing plans - and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous’s fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality. Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps - young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff - Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants....

    This book is not written well, it takes 10 minutes to describe an action or event that takes 1 minute. it will make you skip sections

    The year is 2071. It is very recognizable world, only now the United States has implemented a wide-scale, government-run cloning program. Each U.S. citizen has a “copy” living separately in a cleared zone in the Midwest. If an “original” is sick or injured and requires surgery, whatever he or she needs is taken from their clone.

    In the two decades since the program’s inception, no person outside the government has ever seen their copy, and no clone has ever successfully escaped—until now.

    Mr Ringo has put together a troubling piece of Sci-Fi, He shows how he dislikes all but blond Hair people and that they should be the only ones left on the planet.
