    Artemis Fowl’s archenemy Opal Koboi has masterminded a way to simultaneously secure her release from prison and bring the human and fairy worlds to their knees. And, unless Artemis can stop her, the evil pixie’s next move will destroy all human life on Earth. Ground zero is the Fowl Estate, where Opal has reanimated fairy warriors who were buried there thousands of years ago. Their spirits have possessed any vessels they can find - corpses, Artemis’s little brothers, assorted wildlife - and they are bound to obey Opal’s every command. Defeating the motley troops and their diabolical leader will require all of Artemis’s cleverness.

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

    I found the book to be entertaining for both my 10 year old girl as well as myself. When started following this story about two years ago and haven't been disappointed.


    What other book might you compare The Last Guardian to and why?

    The book is a child's level of "LORD OF THE RINGS". It has problem solving scenes that help the kids learn how to keep trying even when all seems lost.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the artificial intelligence of Follie's car. This is the car we all dream about as children.


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

    The problem now a days is that We can't listen or read anything in one sitting. I will tell you that my daughter looked for a few mins. to turn the book on.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tell Me Where It Hurts to be better than the print version?

    I found the audio edition of this book to be better then the printed version because it allowed me to sit back "see" the animal clinic and how the patient, the client and the doctor interacted. Simon Vance makes the book LIVE and allow a depth to the book I wouldn't have gotten if I read it in print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different voices held my attention. The story talks about the emotional needs our animals meet. It explains how different people can develop different points of view on treating our animals like our human families.


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

    The true story in the life of animals!

    Story
    (15)

    When boys act out, get into fights, or become physically aggressive, we can't avoid noticing their bad behavior. But it is easy to miss the subtle signs of aggression in girls: the dirty looks, the taunting notes, or the exclusion from the group, that send girls home crying.

    Cynthia says: "Compelling and informative"
    "Gives new insight to how mean girls can be."

    Story
    Would you listen to Odd Girl Out again? Why?

    I work in a school and found this book very helpful by giving insight to how mean girls can be. It points out behavior and patterns that people working with girls shroud watch for and address. I feel listening to this book every year would help me reach out to those children who need my help the most


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

    The film that shows how words hurt more then sticks and stones......


    Any additional comments?

    This book was right on target with girl's behavior. The description of bullying tactics that girls use may be more harmful then when boys fight. This book will make you remember some of our most hurtful times growing up.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    Story
    (1422)

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    Joshua Kim says: "Very Very Smart"
    "Great way to give structure to random events"

    What other book might you compare The Drunkard's Walk to and why?

    Any books by Malcolm Gladwell.


    What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Sean Pratt held my attention and brought the book to life.
