    From the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak, and tentacled mayhem. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities.

    The narrator Katherine Kellgren did an excellent job. I was afraid to listen to the audiobook at first since I am a big fan of Jane Austen. But I am happy to say that after listening I was delightfully surprised the book was kept to most of the Jane Austen tradition. Now with that being said, the book is also quite a different story from the original. Yes, all of the original characters are there, but after listening, you will never view the original Jane Austen novel the same way again. This was actually a fun and entertaining listen with quite a few funny parts. The audiobook was very good, I recommend. Give it a listen. Enjoy!

    The first of Jane Austen's novels to be published, Sense and Sensibility marked the debut of England's primary novelist of manners. Convinced that "three or four families in a country village is the very thing to work upon", Austen created a brilliant tragicomedy of flirtation and folly.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sense and Sensibility to be better than the print version?

    Hmm, that would be a hard one to be honest. I remember growing up and reading Sense and Sensibility, so many fond memories. But listening to the audio edition does bring the characters to life and off the page. The narrator did a marvelous job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters, all of them!


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

    She brings the characters to life and makes them real.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Every Jane Austen book has those reactions in them.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of all of the Jane Austen titles, this one would have to be my favorite. From the movie, to the novel, and now the audio book, I can never get enough of these delightful characters. In my opinion, Jane Austen was one of the best authors of her time, and in my heart still continues to be today.

    The narrator, Wanda McCaddon did a marvelous job in keeping with the tradition and spirit of the theme of the book. Her voice was a great pleasure to listen to. This was an audiobook listen that I recommend highly.

    After six long years of political genocide carried out against the American people by the administration of President Benjamin Franklin Luder, the nation is stunned when Luder announces that he is issuing an executive order to suspend the next presidential election for "the good of the country," giving him an unconstitutional third term as president. Luder has slowly and systematically robbed the citizens of various liberties and freedoms through similar acts, and in the process he has nearly destroyed the once-greatest country on earth.

    What other book might you compare Flight of the Bowyer to and why?

    Hunger Games


    What about Alex Hyde-White’s performance did you like?

    Alex Hyde-White as always does a marvelous job. His characters are believable and emotions are right on Que. He allows the voices he creates to come alive, and in doing so, a well told story becomes an excellent adventure in listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone looking for a great action novel, this is it. This is an audiobook that will definitely keep your interest. A dystopian feel, with a political influence; kind of like the Hunger Games. Excellent listen, thrills, chills and suspense. Great plot line; the evil against good, where good must prevail. Great listen that will keep the imagination working. Recommend highly!

    Travel with Holmes and Watson to solve five mysteries from around the world. Narrated by the award winner and television celebrity, Alex Hyde-White. Story One: Not so Merry in Good Ol' Scotland. I awoke groggily, the surroundings looking dim. My vision was blurry, and I wondered where I was. I tried to move my arms and legs, but they felt as heavy as lead. Holmes? My voice rang out through the dark room, until a light was shone in my face.

    A well written story, each character well outlined. The author wrote the book in such a way that the story was able to be told in a way as to bring the listener into the world of Holmes. The narrator, Alex Hyde-White with his gifted and talented voice brought the characters off of the page, and into a three dimensional mix that allowed the characters to dance thru the imagination and bring you along on Holmes and Watson's travels. This made for a good story. Give the audiobook a listen and begin your travels with Holmes. You won't be disappointed.

    "The Playground" was part of the first hardcover edition of Ray Bradbury's legendary work Fahrenheit 451, published in 1953. In the story, Charles Underhill is a widower who will do anything to protect his young son Jim from the horrors of the playground - a playground which he and the boy pass by daily and the tumult of which, the activity, brings back to Charles the anguish of his own childhood.

    Nothing really matters says: "Something more than just a creepy short story."

    In the true spirit of the Twilight Zone atmosphere, Ray Bradbury weaves a tale that is both entertaining, and wickedly enthralling. To revisit childhood, The Playground touches on the worst and horrific parts of childhood, and also lends as a reminder to those innocent and carefree moments. For those who continue to say, "I wish I was a child again, how I would do things differently," this book is for you. A great little listen, the narrator, Jonathan Davis does a superb job.

    The history behind it and the Gettysburg Address reading at the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This was a reading and a lesson in history, so there was not really per say a character. This was more of a telling of the characters who played a part in history, and the shaping of our country.


    Any additional comments?

    Brother against brother, the civil war was one of the bloodiest wars fought. With the loss of life on both sides, the war was a personal one. For it was a war fought on our own lands against our own neighbors. The audiobook touches on Gettysburg, and why after all of these years, it still holds meaning, its importance and significance, and of course the Gettysburg Address. The narrators, Mark Boyett and Kevin Pariseau did a fantastic job. The audiobook is an interesting and telling listen.

    It was possibly the discovery of a lifetime: a drug that would reverse the effects of aging, seemingly indefinitely. The tests were all positive, first on rats, then monkeys and other large animals, and finally, on humans. It was a dream come true, the promise of a healthy, happy life, with all the benefits of the young, including energy, vitality, and sex drive, for 200 years or more. Tens of millions clamored to be among the first to take the drug.

    Always chasing after an elixir to prolong the life; always hoping to extend the life and escape the inevitable death. This story holds true to that age old conquest. But it also holds a valuable moral. Be careful when asking for what you wish for, you may not be prepared for what you receive. The audiobook will hold you to your seat thru the very last chapter. The narrator, Whitney Webster, does a masterfully and skillful job of treating each character with a uniqueness to allow the story to take on a life that is both suspenseful and riveting with her talent. This is an audiobook listening experience not to be missed.
