    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was interesting however with the flashbacks it takes a second to find out who they are talking about cause sometimes that person is dead. The wheel of times worked well with two voices, however either the levels weren't adjusted or somthing every time they switch the the girl to the guy the volume peaks out hurting the two voices.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ex-Heroes?

    Original of saint george


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ?

    Casting might have been fine with levels were adjusted.


    Was Ex-Heroes worth the listening time?

    Yes it was. Im going to test book two to see if it improves

    Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome, chillingly ruthless, and licensed to kill. This, the first of Ian Fleming's tales of secret agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called "Le Chiffre" by ruining him at the Baccarat table, forcing his Soviet spymasters to "retire" him. It seems that lady luck has sided with 007 when Le Chiffre hits a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules.

    This nationally best-selling novel from Pulitzer Prize-winner Jeffrey Eugenides was adapted into an acclaimed film by Academy Award-winner Sofia Coppola. A haunting yet wickedly funny tale, The Virgin Suicides has captivated countless readers with its intoxicating portrait of lost innocence. A brilliant fusion of dark humor and tragedy, it is an atmospheric, allegorical masterpiece about five oppressed, suicidal sisters and the boys who dream of rescuing them.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Ready for it to end.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Hard to tell, the story wasn't appealing. Maybe the movie was just casted well.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, i had read all the Wheel of Time books by Jordan and Sanderson and really enjoyed them. I had never read a book by Sanderson until now and was very disappointed.


    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    The basic story was interesting, however there was no character development. No epic seemed interesting and neither did the normals.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    It was more the writing then the actual narrator.


    Do you think Steelheart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I'm probably not going to get the sequel.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    If you could sum up A Memory of Light in three words, what would they be?

    Finally it ended.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Nothing it just years to end. The ending was good, just the last book seem to draw out the battles a little too long. I loved the series just as Sanderson took over it seemed like watching a few seasons of Dragonball Z with long combat scenes.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Lan Mandragon.


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

    Do television, a movie would suck.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    A vicious 15-year-old droog is the central character of this 1963 classic, a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. In Anthony Burgess' nightmare vision of the future, where the criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends' social pathology.

    Mild-mannered Walter Mitty is a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. This well-known and beloved tale has launched its famous protagonist into the cultural lexicon, warranting his inclusion in English-language dictionaries and countless anthologies. Stiller's imaginative performance as Mitty is the perfect re-introduction to the classic character and a great preface to the upcoming film, for longtime fans and new listeners alike.
