    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It's not a bad book. It's probably that since I recently re-listened to Bujold's Vorkosigan saga, many other books seem a bit ... em... colorless in comparison.
    Story - 4 stars: it's sound, but it didn't take my breath away
    Characters - 3 stars: flat. I am convinced that an outstanding character in the book would totally make this a 5 star book across the board. Where are you Miles Vorkosigan?


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael J. Sullivan? Why or why not?

    probably not.


    What about Tim Gerard Reynolds???s performance did you like?

    He did a good job, but didn't strike me as outstanding.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    probably.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Would you listen to 14 again? Why?

    I had a big grin of satisfaction when I finished listening. Likable characters, good story, well read.

    Captain Eric Weston and his crew encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people; all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero. A first-rate military-science-fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I finished 1st book and don't plan on continuing.


    Would you recommend Into the Black to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend the book. For better military series, there is the Lost Fleet. For awesome characters, there is Miles Vorkosigan.


    Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    None. The characters are distinguishable only by name (That's not meant to be disparaging towards the narrator)


    Was Into the Black worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Decent plot, non-existent character development. There was exactly one instance of humor in the entire book. Why so serious, mr. author? This could be an awesome series, given likeable characters and more varied writing. Every time I heard "blazing", I cringed. There are other words to describe this concept. Ouch.

  • One God, Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam [Portable Professor]

    The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship, frequently defined by conflict, over the course of millennia of coexistence.

    David says: "No Faith Needed"
    "Captivating and educational"
    Overall

    The professor gives us a wonderful overview of the three major religions, their differences and similarities. All in a style that will keep you interested and learning during the whole course.
    I found it very objective, but then I am an atheist.
