  • The Colour of Magic: Discworld #1

    The Colour of Magic, the first novel in Terry Pratchett's wildly imaginative Discworld series, takes the listener on a remarkable journey. The magical planet of Discworld is supported by four massive elephants who stand on the back of the Great A'Tuin, a giant turtle swimming slowly through the mysterious interstellar gulf. An eccentric expedition sets out to explore the planet, encountering dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and of course "The Edge" of the planet.

    "In awe of just how auful this book was"
    Overall

    I am in awe of just how truly god awful this book was especially after reading reviews! I read the initial reviews, saw there were plenty of more stories from this author and thought maybe I have stumbled across something here. I loved Douglas Adams, and am a big Neil Gaiman fan and the humor was said to be similar. Well I was in a for a shock. It is extremely rare for me not to at least finish an audio book as I have a long commute. I kept listening to it hoping for some improvement in the story to at least enable me to finish listening and not feel totally cheated. Well, I just couldn't. After their encounter at the end of the ocean where they met the creature who fell offf another planet, I finally gave up. All I can say, is Audible should owe me a few free credits after the torture of even listening this far into the story. The author's disclaimer not to share his work, was the most humerous part of the book as he should have no fears at least as far as I am concerned. People go read Nevewhere or Stardust from Neil Gaiman. Go read some Brandon Sanderson. Go read some curious george, if you have to, but don't read this.

    When the sky rips open somewhere over Dover, two objects hurtle out of the Vortex and crash-land in the sea. One is the TARDIS, out of control and freefalling - but the other, a mysterious crystalline sphere, is far more sinister... The Doctor and Donna are rescued and taken to a secret command centre in the Dover cliffs. It's May 1940, and Vice-Admiral Ramsey is about to finalise one of the most daring plans of the Second World War: Operation Dynamo.

    Lakisha says: "It rocks!"
    "Not bad for a Dr. Who Book"
    Overall

    Most of the doctor who books are god-awful. This story line, however, is somewhat interesting and catherine tate is the reader which is such a treat to listen to her play Donna in the book.

    When the TARDIS is invaded by a holographic marketing scam, the Doctor and Donna find themselves trapped on the Edifice, a purpose-built complex of luxury apartments in space. Their new environs leave much to be desired: millions of beings from across the Universe have been gathered to live side by side in similar apartments. Instead of creating neighbourly affection, it's led to terrible battles being waged in the corridors and on the stairwells.

    "Better then most"
    Overall

    this dr. who book is better then most (which doesn't say much for most of the doctor who books). Catherine Tate is also the reader. It's hard to go wrong with such a talented actress and comedian reading the story.

    When the Doctor arrives on Earth in the far future, he is horrified to find the planet beset by famine and starvation. England is a barren wasteland, and scientists are desperately seeding the ground to make the crops grow again. But now it seems that something even worse is happening. Karl Baring, the owner of research facility The Grange, has been snatched away in the middle of the night.

    Sophie says: "david tennant is an ace narrator"
    "At least it is read by David Tennant"
    Overall

    Another pretty dumb book. David Tennant is such a good reader however that he does make it somewhat entertaining.

    For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon...' An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax. But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on Earth.

    Rachel says: "Not Nearly As Bad as the Other Reviews Say"
    "Not Bad"
    Overall

    Most of the Dr. Who books are god awful. This one is a little better then some of the other Dr. Who Books. If you are desperate for a Dr. Who story, I would consider this one. If you are not, go find a better book.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Lore says: "Book 1 of a great series that is not to be missed!"

    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave listeners shaking their heads in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

    This is an exclusive, original adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by David Tennant. Featuring additional music and effects, Doctor Who: Dead Air has never been previously published. Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins.

    Paul says: "Brilliant story and well crafted audiobook"
    "David Tennant brings this story to life"
    Overall

    I have listened to just about every Dr Who audio book, only because I am persistent and hoped at least a couple of storied might actually be half decent. Even as persistent, as I have been, I have come to the end of my rope with how awful the Doctor Who books are. Well, this book is one of the few that actually is actually half decent. David Tennant is wonderful as the reader and it is an interesting story.

    Responding to an advert apparently worded for him alone, Captain Mike Yates (retired) is reunited with a ghost from the past. But why has the Doctor, that mysterious traveller in Time and Space, sent for his former UNIT acquaintance? Trapped by a horde of vicious creatures in an apparently innocuous English country cottage, the two old friends are on the brink of an enormous adventure.

    W. Doug Bolden says: "Charming? Yes. Doctor Who? Maybe."
    "Tom Baker is wasted on such a mediocre story"
    Overall

    Tom Baker, the fourth doctor, who is an excellent reader, deserves some great writing! Something of the calibur of what the current tv series provides to us. As thrilled as we all are to hear Tom Baker, back and reading once again as The Doctor, the material that Mr. Baker has been provided with to read to us is beyond retarded. Please god, some good author, write something and send it to Mr. Baker to consider reading. Unfortunately, we don't have Douglas Adams anymore. How about Neil Gaiman?

    Also the whole scum bag money sucking approach by Audible regarding this series is shameful. (They release the story an hour at a time and have the gall to charge for each hour).
