    You may know me best as Meredith Nic Essus, princess of faerie. Or perhaps as Merry Gentry, Los Angeles private eye. In the fey and mortal realms alike, my life is the stuff of royal intrigue and celebrity drama. Among my own, I have confronted horrendous enemies, endured my noble kins treachery and malevolence, and honored my duty to conceive a royal heirall for the right to claim the throne.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't mind the "slutty" and numerous sex scenes should enjoy this book. Not for me, I gave up romance novels a long time ago.


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    All of the extremely descriptive sex. I thought the book was a fantasy novel or I would not have bought it.


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    All of the characters were equally well performed by the narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Divine Misdemeanors: Meredith Gentry, Book 8?

    I omit all of the porn, and just leave a hint of what transpired between the characters.

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"

    Would you try another book from Neal Stephenson and/or Jonathan Davis?

    If I read the synopsis and it sounds interesting, perhaps.


    Has Snow Crash turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not the kind of sci-fi I care for, in general.

    Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left - now he has less than one. With 50,0000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."

    Would you listen to Divergent again? Why?

    Yes, I would enjoy listening again to pick up any little nuances I missed in the previous listening.


    What other book might you compare Divergent to and why?

    I loved the "Hunger Games" trilogy and was looking for something similar when I found this series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Jumping off the building into the hole


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    not sure


    Any additional comments?

    The story provides new meaning to the caste system and stereotyping that modern day society has.
