    For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book yes this audio NO! The narrator was terrible. I am so sorry I pre-ordered this story I won't be doing that again without checkng who's narrating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I usually like Annabeth but thanks to this narrator I had no favorite character because it was very hard to listen to the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    First he has no range for the different characters everyone sounded the same because all he did was read and he sounded bored no matter what was happening in the story. I am seriously considering returning this audio and buying the book which is why the overall rating was 3 instead of 5.


    Could you see The House of Hades being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I haven't given it a thought.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE go back to Joshua Swanson or try Jessie Bernstein. After waiting all this time to hear this story it was a major let down and I will never buy another audio where Nick Chamian is the narrator.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    Story

    The narration was so terrible I could not enjoy the story. Ever time I was getting into the story Mr. Wilson swollowed irrating me so much I became distracted. I will never buy another audiobook George Wilson is narrating! I primarily paid to listen the narrator's body functions!

    Barely a teenager, Kaylin Neya is a thief, a fugitive and an attempted assassin. She also has a smart mouth, sharp wits and mysterious markings on her skin. All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra - if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks!

    Story

    Giving this novella for free was a stroke of genus. The charaters are interesting and the story keeps you listening, although some of the scenes were a bit gory. I fully intend to listen to the entire series. Thanks audible for the free book and a new author to follow!

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Story

    Not my usual reading material but I needed a break and decided to give this book a listen. Boy, am I glad I did! Amelia is opinionated, outspoken and her thoughts on men are amusing and not to be literal. The countryside descriptions may seem long winded but are colorful and superb give a good idea of the country. It was enjoyable and the sexual passages compared to most modern books was easy for all family members to listen. As for the story itself it was interesting and pulled me in and I have already downloaded the next book in the series. Last but definitely not least the narrator Barbara Rosenblat is excellent and adds to the books.

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Big magic and over the top fights. This book kept me interested from beginning to end. I enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of the chapters it really showed the difference between our reality and the book. I can't wait for the next book and if your smart you will definitely keep the narrator he rocks!

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Story

    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.

    FanB14 says: "Hilarious"

    SLJ was the perfect person to read this story! For those of us who have children we have ALL thought this at one time or another.
