  • Marauders of Gor: Gorean Saga, Book 9

    Story
    (29)

    Former earthman Tarl Cabot has been struggling to free himself from the cruel control of the Priest-Kings of Gor to no avail. As he pits his strength against such a formidable enemy, a terrible beast appears from the mysterious northern lands, bearing a token of the demise of Tarl's once-beloved woman Talena. The missive is a sign of defiance and disrespect from his enemies, meant to humiliate him and force him to challenge them in response.

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

    When I was a teenager, I truly loved these books. As I listen to them now, I remembered that there were spots that I skipped over because John Norman has this thing about telling you the same thing over and over and over.... Now they just seem monotonous. Female slaves rape rape rape... little bit of action... Female slaves rape rape rape (but always the woman truly and deeply desires this treatment.) The manliness of her man, and the womanliness of herself over take any rational thought she might have. I guess when I was a teenager, just the word "breast" and the thought of a naked woman was enough to capture my attention... Now, not so much!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Too much emphasis on subjugation of females. Wow... They are slaves.... I think if he took one and fully developed her as a real woman and a companion to Tarl, this could have really been a good series. Realistically, I can't think of any real woman who would be raped repeatedly and willingly submit to and deeply desire her rapist, unless she had been physiologically damaged. There is way too much discussion about this and not enough emphasis on the action. Carl Tabot seems, at points to have deep loyalties, but when it comes to women, these can change in a flash. There has yet to be a woman in this series that he has stayed loyal to.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe just for nostalgic reasons. They would need to perform the "Hollywood transformation" and make a lot of changes in the male - female relationship realm. Maybe have Tarlena actually become Tarl's companion in his adventures.

    (2027)

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    If you could sum up Warbreaker in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, innovative, unpredictable


    What did you like best about this story?

    Characters are fresh and complicated. Story line is well thought out, and constructed.


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Yaegashi’s performances?

    Not really impressed with the nearly "one note" narrator. Cadence is not right or something. The storyline keeps me listening, but he is no Michael Kramer.

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Where does Furies of Calderon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to many audiobooks, and this one is now in the top 10. Excellent characters and a intriguing plot! Kate Reading lends her talents (Wheel of Time) making this a must for those who love science fiction books. Fantastic mental imagery! Kudos to Jim Butcher for another fantastic book, and the beginning of a series that I am sure will bring me many hours of listening pleasure.
