    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.

    Would you listen to Ender's Game again? Why?

    Yes. It’s beautiful story that shows all the facets of human nature.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ender's Game?

    I especially liked the part when Valentine and Peter reach an agreement and start working together to influence the minds of others.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The narrator does a beautiful job in bringing the scenes of the battle school to life.

    The most emotional moment for me was when Ender talk to the Bugger queen.

    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    Any additional comments?

    This book, much like the previous two, is the perfect mix between the ancient egyptian mythology and the present time. The characters worry about the impending apocalypse as much as they worry about their relatioships or their first prom. Both the narrators do an amazing job and, despite all the drama and the bad things, the author was able to tell the story in an entertaining way. Although it's a story for the young crowd anyone who likes all things egyptian will like this book.

    Here is an award-winning production with an all-star cast, bringing to life one of the best loved and recognised children's books of all time. This is a full dramatisation with specially composed music.

    What made the experience of listening to Winnie the Pooh (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

    The narrators gave a new perspective to the story, and the sounds and musical notes made it perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Eeyore. His depressive mood and negative thinking contrasts perfectly with some of the more cheerful characters in the book. And the way his friends keep trying to help him and cheer him up is simply adorable. For me his birthday is one of the best stories in the book.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Judi Dench as a narrator was my favourite. She was able to tell the story in playfull and entertaining way.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I bought this audiobook right after watching the new Winnie the Pooh movie and started to read at night night in my bed. I quickly found that this one was an amazing bedtime story that would put me to sleep in a very restful way. Not because the audiobook is boring and can't be read all the way trough (I've done it and its a very nice experience too) but because the voices, the sounds ans the story are so soothing.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "A nice talk with Ms. Fey"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    I didn't get a chance to read the print version but I can't imagine it gets better than this.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    One of the most memorable moments for me was the Sarah Palin


    Have you listened to any of Tina Fey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any other performances by Tina Fey but after listening to this one I will for sure look for them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There wasn't a particular moment that moved me but the entire book is written in such an amazing and honest way that I felt I was talking to her in person, and that in itself is a big moment!
