    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back. The brassy babe in the powder blue Buick has been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier, Trenton's most beloved citizen, arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, gone no-show for his court appearance. Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, searching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with dead drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo may be in over his head.

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

    Yes, but I kept thinking that the narrator could be better; she was gulping for air (out of shape or maybe she is just too heavy) and was annoying.


    What didn’t you like about C. J. Critt’s performance?

    The fact that she gasp every other sentence is too much.Why the producer or the supervisor doesn't correct this problem?


    Any additional comments?

    Please, please. please get a new narrator. I love these books and would like to listen instead of reading bc I don't have time to read, but I guess that I would have to make time now. I really like the characters and story. Janet Evanovich makes me laught so much with grandma Mazur, Stephanie, Morelli, Ranger and Lula.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Story
    Has A Feast for Crows turned you off from other books in this genre?

    After reading the previous books, I found myself wondering: What happend? Where are the main characters? Who are the new ones and why? 34 hours of nothing. Chapter after charper waiting for something worthy to arise and very few good things happen.The events from this book could have been condence in five chapters.Very disappointed.


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

    As the previous books Mr. Dotrice did a great job. I didn't care of the different pronunciation of names, I knew who he was talking about. I was more upset about the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Feast for Crows?

    Like I said before, the events of this book could have be done in five chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was annoyed by the lack of action, too much talk, talk, talk. I didn't care for most of the characters. I was bored, and couldn't wait 'til the end and no because it was good; I just want to put it aside and never listen ever, ever ever again. I just want my wasted time back.

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

    Top 10, the story kept me wanted more, I couldn't stop listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Transfer of Power?

    So many, plus I don't want to give anything away. The whole book was great.


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

    He was really good, different voices, well done.


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

    Absolutely, I hate no being able to listening at work (so many interruptions), but as soon I was in my car so was Mitch Rapp.


    Any additional comments?

    I regret not buying this book before; I was influenced by the reviews that the new narrator was terrible and now that I have finished listening, I STRONGLY DISAGREE. Nick Sullivan was really, really good; yes, George Guidall was excellent, but Mr. Sullivan was great. If he had read the first two books I would have love him too. The story is great, love the characters. Can't wait to get my next credit to buy The Thrid Option + can't wait for the movie.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Trudi Canavan? Why or why not?

    Probably not, maybe is for young people.


    Do you think The Magician's Guild needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I guess, for the ppl that like the book. The book have some unfinished business and I believe those need closure.


    Any additional comments?

    Slow start, there was a few good parts in the middle, but the last 2 1/2 hours were really good. The end was disappointing. What Fergun did was bad, I was expecting a big reaction from the guild. but nothing came out of it???Easy to guess that is on the second book, but it felt unfinished.Sorry, I feel bad to give a not so good review:(

    No I have not


    Did Polar Star inspire you to do anything?

    No, I just wanted to finish it and listen to something different.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    Davenport is a different type of cop, plays by his own rules and I like the story.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Davenport, he is cool, tough and sexy.


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

    Rarely books are made into "good" movies, they are always changing characters, the story, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope book two is as good as this one.
