    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    "I'll be reading the next book instead of listening"
    Overall

    I have just finished this first book in the Game of Thrones and I will say sadly, that I will be reading the second one instead of listening. I normally love readers who act as much as Roy Dotrice, but I think I would enjoy some of the characters better in my own mind, then the way he portrayed them. There were times that I was actually taken from the story and thought, “That is a terrible way to depict that line…” He is a very exciting reader whose voice and acting is GREAT for some of the characters, and TERRIBLE for others, which for me equals a fail. I am giving four stars because this is a FIVE STAR STORY, with a reading that subtracted from the experience instead of adding.

    The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good...and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.

    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't able to finish, I read about 2/3 of the way through and gave up because I just had zero interest in what was going on.

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    FanB14 says: "Dissent Rules"
    "Fell short of the First book"
    Overall

    This book wasn't bad but could have been so much better. I don't want to give things away by using examples, but lets just say there is a lot of repetition and a ton of missed opportunities. Action could have been used to develop the characters but instead just filled up space.

    I'll continue on to the 3rd book as I did enjoy the work but hope the 3rd book lives up to the first.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Lore says: "Wow - 45 hours long and leaves you wanting more!"
    "Sanderson's best work"
    Overall

    I loved Myst Born but The Way of Kings is setting out to be a more mature and well developed read. I'm in love with the world and the characters and highly recommend this book.

    In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.

    Tracey says: "Doesn't live up to potential"
    "Unintresting"
    Overall

    Predictable and uninteresting and unintelligent characters. Boring plot.

    I was looking for something lite as I just finished the Dune Series but was let down. For a lite read with worthwhile characters and plot check out the Mystborn series.

    Turning 27 may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the midwestern United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target.

    D says: "Can't stand alone"
    "Favoret Author, Bad Book"
    Overall

    I can't believe this is written by the same author as the sword of truth series. The characters are not consistent, the plot is far from strong and the antagonist is extremely generic.

    Terry what happened?
