    Where does Conquest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book doesn't stand out among any of the other books I've listened too. I just enjoy Mark Tufo's writing so far.


    What other book might you compare Conquest to and why?

    Can't make a comparison at this time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Very descriptive fight scenes. Very cleverly done.


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

    NO. Neither.

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was so glad when this ended. So tired of listening to it. Should've stopped at book1. There are just too many stories, and too many characters, going on. Difficult to keep track of them all in an audio book. Some scenes are too descriptive, making them longer than necessary.


    What could Justin Cronin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Eliminated unnecessary characters and their stories.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    World War Z: The Complete Edition is a new recording of Max Brooks’ best-selling novel, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, featuring 21 additional Hollywood A-list actors and sci-fi fan favorites performing stories not included in the original edition.

    Would you try another book from Max Brooks and/or the narrators?

    I had no issues with the way it was written, or even the narrators. It was just very dull.


    What was most disappointing about Max Brooks’s story?

    Ten minutes into a character's story and then onto another character to get a different perspective. Just one after another, after another, after another for the hour and a half I listened to it. Couldn't stand the thought of it continuing. Didn't want to keep listening to see if it did.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    The narrator did a fine enough job.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Total disappointment.

  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Ernest Cline

    (10926)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ready Player One to be better than the print version?

    Yes


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

    Wheaton does a superb job with the story. He brings the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not one particular moment. There were many.
