    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Story
    What did you love best about Vampire Academy?

    Actually I loved the narration the best. Stefanie Wolf really nails the tone of the writing well. The story is not my normal fare, but it made me smile and the writing was tight. It was a very nice change from my normal fare, and I really did enjoy it. Not every book works well in audio form, but this is a great start.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rose because of her sarcasm


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile which was even more important.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is for a younger audience, but the writing was good enough that I enjoyed it as well.

    From the reinvention of French food through the fine dining revolution in America, Daniel Boulud has been witness to, and creator of, our contemporary food culture. A modern man with a classical foundation, he speaks with the authority that comes from a lifetime of experience, and no small amount of passion, about the vocation of creating and serving food.

    Story

    I admit it, I am a fan of any books on cooking, from Bill Buford's Heat to Tony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. This book is the first one I have listened to rather than read. The narrator is excellent, and I can close my eyes and imagine it is Chef Boulud speaking to me.

    It's not a long book, but fascinating to listen to.
