    The anthology Songs of the Dying Earth has assembled one of the most distinguished casts of authors ever - including Dan Simmons, Neil Gaiman, George R. R. Martin, Paula Volsky, Mike Resnick, Robert Silverberg, Lucius Shepard, Tad Williams, Tanith Lee, Liz Williams, Glen Cook, and eleven other famous writers - to write stories in honor of the genius of Jack Vance, stories using the bizarre and darkly beautiful far future setting of the Dying Earth, near the very end of Earth's lifespan.

    Story
    (3520)

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    I am a long time customer of Audible This is the first book where, after listening to the first part, I can not tell you what the plot of the book is.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    What would have made The Name of the Wind better?

    a better name for this might be 'orphan gets into rich man's magic college'


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    definitely NOT Day 2


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    no plot, no action to speak of just a boring boring listen.

    It is 1758, and the flames of the Seven Years' War are burning hotter than ever. The rigors and dangers of battle are actually a welcome respite for Lord John and his brother Hal, who feel the constant strain of their family's troubled history. Blending war, family secrets, and forbidden love, Gabaldon crafts a suspenseful novel that loyal fans and newcomers alike with find irresistible.

    As a long time audible customer who can remember the first servers and the need to download small parts of books to a small pre mp3 player I am really embarrassed.

    I got my wife a zen and logged her into my account so she could download a title for her own enjoyment.

    The male to male sex really upset her.

    She read the audible posted information and thought she was getting a romance historical title.

    oppppppppps that is not what it is

    I did not think to tell her to read some reviews. She listened to the sample audio and bought the book.

    Audible needs a better book description or rate the title.

    This is a xxxxxx title and should be described as such.

  • The Kite Runner

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    P. C..S. says: "A Worhty Read"
    "Great Read"
    Overall

    Khaled Hosseini has that rare ability to paint his world in words for us to enjoy. recommend highly! Hope he does not stop here, 5 stars from me

    George Smiley, one of the most brilliant spies in the world, is chosen to dig out a mole and destroy him. And so Smiley embarks on his blind night walk, retracing path after path into his own past - its aliases, covers, sleights of hand - burrowing into the dust of unresolved episodes.

    Valerie G. Olson says: "Wonderful story that exercises the intellect"
    "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    I suppose that the reader?s English accents should bring one in to the story I found it very distressing and very hard to follow the story. This is probably one book that should remain a book.
