    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    I love books with strong women charachters and this one was one of the best i have listened to this year. The story is really engrossing but the narrator really makes it great! Cant wait to down load the second book. I wish all narrators were this good!

    Annie Starling is missing her memory of the last eight weeks - the most devastating in history. It started in Russia and went global in a matter of days, the most virulent virus the world has ever known. It's stripping its victims of every last thing that makes them human. And that's just the beginning. The other survivors are no less dangerous than the infected. She meets Lane, who stops at nothing to assert power and control over everybody who's left; Kyle, who dreams of building a new world upon the ruins of the old.

    Would you try another book from Michael J. Totten and/or Steven Roy Grimsley?

    I don't think I will.


    What was most disappointing about Michael J. Totten’s story?

    I liked the plot, however, the characters were very flat. The author only gives you a little background about these people and then he tries to put them in situations that really require a lot more insight. Example: One character apparently falls in love with another character, however, they never even had a serious conversation together. It just didn't work and I couldn't get into it. The choices these people make are really dumb.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven Roy Grimsley?

    I thought the narrator was actually good. He is the only reason I even gave this 2 stars.


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

    Annoyance

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Where does A Game of Thrones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. The narrator was not the best but he wasnt the worst either. I could tolerate him. The story is what was so great. I loved all the different people and their lives. Cant wait to listen to the next book in the series.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    What disappointed you about NOS4A2?

    The narrator made everyone sound like they were mental and very whiney.


    What was most disappointing about Joe Hill’s story?

    The entire plot was bad and the part involving religion was disturbing to me.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Mulgrew?

    Anyone else. There are so many good female narrators I don't understand why anyone would go with someone who made everyone sound so dumb.


    What character would you cut from NOS4A2?

    I just couldn't get into this book at all I didnt like anyone really.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know how this book ended. I just gave up and stopped listening. I don't normally write reviews, however, I thought I would so maybe I could save someone from using a credit on this.

    Set in a world where some people are born with a Grace - a unique, sometimes uncanny, gift - this is the story of Katsa, whose Grace, demonstrated at an uncomfortably early age, is for killing. This makes her a perfect tool for her uncle, King Randa But Katsa chafes at the way she is being used - and even more at the injustices she sees around her.Then she meets Prince Po, who has a Grace to match hers...

    Kari says: "Outstanding first novel!"
    "VERY GOOD BOOK"
    Overall

    I really liked this book. It was different from any other book i have listened to because there is a seperate person reading for each part. I wish more books were narrated this way. I thought the story line was great and the heroine was awsome. I wish i could find more books like this.

    Overall

    I loved the entire series - the narrator droned a little in all the books but still a good listen. You cant really catch up if you havent read the first 2 books. These books are really well written and so easy to listen to that i found myself listening all the time. I am really sad the series is over. The reason i gave 4 stars instead of 5 is i thought the first 2 were perfect and the last was really a wrap up with alot more charachters. That got a little tedious to follow sometimes. Anyway these are really great books.
