    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    Story

    I listened with my husband and it sparked a lot of interesting discussions. None of the concepts where that new to me but I found the bending of science to fit the cultural view very interesting and apt. It was quite focused on the research which I find fascinating but may not suit everyone. I really liked the way they looked at many aspects for hunter gather life and not just sex.

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Story

    First Vampire novel I have listened too but I have read a lot and this was very average. Not a lot happens, the usual everything that could go wrong goes wrong plot with the main character being used as an 'example' to other new vampires for no real reason. I enjoyed it but wont be getting any more. The romance is very back seat and unimportant, the mystery is almost forgotten until the antagonist starts waving her arms saying look at me look at me and the scary confrontation with the family was a wash out.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Story

    Being a mmo nut myself I really got into the story, it was funny and entertaining. The characters where quirky and the reading was great. The only thing I didn't like was the ending, no profit driven company would do that, even it it was best for the 'toons'.

    If you like Disk world you will like this.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    Story

    I really enjoyed the story and listened to it every chance I got. It was exciting for the most part and I really cared what happened to the characters which he occasionally killed off which kept it all the more suspenseful.

    I haven't read a book like this for near on 15 years and it reminded me why I loved them so much when I was younger.

    It had a bit of a slow start but it made you care about the characters and made me want them to survive. The ending was a little abrupt with an epilogue to tie the story lines in neat bows.
