    This delightful workshop covers how you can use the myths and fairy tales that link us all to give your story more oomph. Get ready to laugh while you learn, because the speaker is a natural storyteller and a witty observer of life. Whether you're creating a screenplay, a novel, a play, a computer game, a puppet show, or just an entry in your journal, your story will be richer, it will touch more people, and it will have more meaning and depth after you listen to Chris Vogler's talk.

    "enjoyable listen"
    Overall

    I'm no writer, but I have some ideas that I want to turn into stories. In light of that, I thought this was informative. When I start putting pen to paper I will make sure to listen to this again, and take some notes.

    In addition, this gives new perspective to enjoying TV shows, books, movies, or other types of storytelling media.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Overall

    When I first started listening to this book, I was really upset. This was primarily because they had changed readers on me. However, I eventually grew acustomed to his new pronunciations.
    On the other hand, the differentiation in voices paled in comparison to Roy Dotrice. Even at the end of the book I was bothered by the difficulty in discerning which character was which.

    The story itself is just as good as the other Song of Ice & Fire books even though Martin introduces still more characters. My biggest criticism of the story is that it seems like another 'Wheel of Time' and that there will never be any significant progress from book to book, and there seems to be no end in sight, like this sentence.

  • Don't Know Much About the Universe: Everything You Need to Know About the Cosmos

    In the latest addition to his best selling and critically acclaimed Don't Know Much About® series, Kenneth Davis delivers a lively and clear guide to the discoveries, theories, and real people that have shaped space exploration from the beginning of civilization to the present. He looks at issues that go beyond the bounds of simple "Science 101" and asks the kinds of questions we may have wanted to ask back in school but didn't have the nerve.

    Overall

    I typically enjoy learning about most anything. Unfortunatly, a large part of this book was just difficult to listen to. The narrater reads, obviously, everything. So we are stuck listening to distances in miles and then in kilometers. We listen to all of the enries in a table that probably are interesting in the text, but are almost useless to listen to. I found the timelines a bit rough as well. I imagine that the book itself comes off much better.

    On the flip side, this does provide a nice overview of the solar sytem and the universe, and the scientific achievements that have helped us to understand it.

    I give it only two stars because it scores low in its ability to keep me awake during my commute.
