    The narration leaves something to be desired, but it's not terrible. The story is a timeless one.

    The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm. Vaelin Al Sorna was only a child of 10 when his father left him at the iron gate of the Sixth Order. The Brothers of the Sixth Order are devoted to battle, and Vaelin will be trained and hardened to the austere, celibate, and dangerous life of a Warrior of the Faith. He has no family now save the Order.

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

    I would recommend this book to a friend. It had a good storyline and likeable characters. The flash-forward, flash-back format I could have done without, but that wasn't too big of a deal.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    For a story that, at it's core, is incredibly simple, this book is wonderfully complex and captivating. A purchase well made.

    Atherton University, freshman year. Kathryn, Randall, and Jesse come from different worlds, but find themselves drawn together in unexpected ways. For each of them, college promises a bright future and a way to disconnect from a dark, haunted past. But as winter sets in, their secret histories threaten to disrupt the layers of deceit that protect their fragile new lives.

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

    I enjoyed the book well enough, but I felt like the story line was porous and not overly plausible. I much preferred Rice's first offering, which wasn't so far-fetched as to grate the psyche.
