    Story

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Unique take on a historic subject"
    Overall

    I didn't know what to really expect. This was a great mix of history and fantasy. Lots of detail, but worth the entire read.

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    "Better than I expected"
    Overall

    After HUNGER GAMES, I needed more. Sometimes the book after such a phenomenal and original story lacks a little of the surprise and excitement. Not so with this book. It lives up to HUNGER GAMES and more. The only bad part, I have to wait another year for the next book!!!!

    A superb, high quality hypnosis program by Glenn Harrold, the UK's best-selling self-help audio author. After being safely guided into a very deep state of complete mental and physical relaxation, you will be given multiple suggestions to release any need or desire for sweet, fattening food and feel good about eating smaller amounts of healthy food instead.

    "blah"
    Overall

    I gave this 5 listens before I just could take it no more. 30 minute segments should be a full 60. He has a dull voice that gets worse with time. The "music" at the beginning and end is beyond cheesy. The worst is to hear him say "sickly sweet and fattening foods." Who talks like that?

    Story
    (581)

    The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

    Eva Gannon says: "Perhaps An Early Work?"
    "Really all Crichton?"
    Overall

    The genius of Crichton is not as evident in this book as all his others (all of which I've read). Did he really write all of this? Parts are suspect. But a fun story.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "Who knew?"
    Overall

    Who knew a story about a boy being raised in a graveyard would be such a wonderful read? Neil Gaiman proves beyond our imagination in storytelling. He also does a fabulous job as a reader. Nobody "Bod" Owens and his very unusual adopted family of ghosts and other supernatural creatures are actually very ordinary, which makes the story accessible to all ages. Love it.
