    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    What made the experience of listening to Wizard and Glass the most enjoyable?

    This novel tells the story of Roland's past. A lot if questions were answered.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how it explains a lot of things from all past books. Also it sets up the rest of the stories very well


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings all characters to life and you can picture each character by his voice. Even the female voices.

    The second novel set in the Old Republic era and based on the massively multiplayer online game Star Wars: The Old Republic ramps up the action and brings listeners face-to-face for the first time with a Sith warrior to rival the most sinister of the Order’s Dark Lords: Darth Malgus, the mysterious, masked Sith of the wildly popular “Deceived” and “Hope” game trailers. Malgus brought down the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in a brutal assault that shocked the galaxy....

    Yes, This is an amazing book. You get to hear sound effects of light saber battles. The storyline is great, the fights are great.


    What other book might you compare Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived to and why?

    The SWTOR is the best series I have read followed closely by the Darth Bane series.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Darth Malgus was a great character.


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

    Revenge of the Jedi!


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't realize the trailer for the Online Game is from this book. When I was reading the book I realized it was the trailer. After reading that part I went and watched the trailer again it was amazing to watch it play out. It was exactly portrayed in the trailer as it was in the book. It was great.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 54 mins)

    Story
    (3334)

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

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

    I was told that the gunslinger series is a great series but the first book is kind of dull but it is a must read to set up the rest. I agree 100%. Not much really happened. I have not started the other books yet. It is intriguing to find out exactly where they are exactly. You leaves a couple of possibilities. I hope they get into that later on.


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

    Not yet off this book alone.


    Any additional comments?

    We will see if the series is as good as hyped up.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Where does Ender's Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to about 30 audio book and this book would rank about 8-10. If you take away the Star Wars series I have read then it might hit around 4-5.


    What other book might you compare Ender's Game to and why?

    I am a Star Wars book fan. The Old Republic series is great. The Fatal Alliance is amazing.


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    The fate of the universe in the hands of a child


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the novel very much. Ender is a great character and Card really puts you inside his head and you get to know Ender very well. If you like Sci Fi novels this is a must read. The sequel to Ender's Game is also a great book.

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    If you could sum up Speaker for the Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Intelligent Imaginative Detailed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Speaker for the Dead?

    Finding out why the piggies did what they did to Pebo.


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

    Can you handle the truth?


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book very much. It did a real good job of painting a picture of a universe that could actually be out there. Card has a great, reasonable imagination of what a future universe could be like. The growth of Ender was interesting. If you read Ender's Game you have to read this book. It gives you all you need to know about all the key characters in how their futures have panned out.
