    The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Allegiance: Star Wars to be better than the print version?

    I have both read and listened to Allegiance and I must admit that Marc Thompson made the journey extremely satisfying. I don't think it is fair to compare print vs. audio because they are different entities but I do find myself recommending the audio more often than the written word.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson was able to capture the voice and style of well known movie actors...not an easy task considering the fan base.

    Story
    (2016)

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "I can relate"

    What did you love best about Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)?

    I loved hearing about her experience with panic attacks. I have panic disorder as well as agoraphobia and it was refreshing to hear her find humor in those awful times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Extremely funny but also relatable. Her Post-It note conversations are hilarious!


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

    The tone that is often in her voice is priceless. If I was simply to read the book I feel I would not have picked up on her 'attitude' as much.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator does well with the voices in the book, however, there are some 'accents' that were hard to follow.

    If available, read the book. If not, the audio is good, just missing more than I would have liked.
