For the ruling family has the power of telepathy, and through it, the ability to communicate faster than light, across interstellar space.

    This was a really good Sci-Fi story, and I liked it quite a bit. There was plenty of action. It held me to the end. Recommended.

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    This book was a hoot the first time I read it years ago, and it still makes me laugh. This is a good conversion of the book, and I recommend it.

    "Clear and Helpful"
    Overall

    This is a beginner's guide - which I am, so it is helpful for me. The diction is clear and understandable. Since I am hard-of-hearing, that helps a lot. I use it when ever I am in the mood to learn more Spanish. (Not too often in other words.) It would be more helpful if I worked harder at learning.

    In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged.

    Wheelman says: "Thoroughly enjoyable....."
    "A Keeper"
    Overall

    This story was good enough to keep and re-listen to every once-in-a-while. It was well written and holds your attention to the end. Recommended.

    One of the few survivors of a League sneak attack on his poor and miserable homeworld of Carescria, Wilf Brim sets out to settle the score. Were it not for the attrition from the war that followed, Wilf would never have escaped his lower-class status and been accepted into the Academy. Now, freshly graduated, young Sublieutenant Wilf Ansor Brim, Imperial Fleet, begins his first assignment, Helmsman of the I.F.S. Truculent.

    "Great Sci-Fi"
    Overall

    This was a great Sci-Fi story. It had plenty of action and the word descriptions of the people/things/places were easy to visulize. I enjoyed it and recommend it.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Excellent Start"
    Overall

    This is the first of a trilogy - Eldest is the second. Although a bit wordy, it is an original story line and very enjoyable. For a teenager, Paolini does an excellent job. I hope he is working on the third and last volume, 'cause I'm hooked.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"
    "Marvelous"
    Overall

    This was the first Dan Brown I read, due to the public hype for it. It was marvelous and I enjoyed it, although Ang.& Deam. was written first. Highly recommended.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    Victoria says: "loved it."
    "Her Best"
    Overall

    Jane Austen at her best. What's to say, I can find no fault. The seven hour BBC movie with Colin Firth and the crew is almost as good, and gives you faces to envision as you read this book.
