    From best-selling author Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquleaure, in the traditional folktale of "Sleeping Beauty", the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the prince reawakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation.

    "Ummm...not what I expected."

    Story
    What would have made The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty better?

    Well, a story other than sex may have helped a bit.


    Has The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I got this because I love the Kushiel novels, but this was over the top raunchy. Carey writes a great story and adds erotica. No real story here.


    What three words best describe Samantha Prescott and Corbin Steele ’s voice?

    The narration was fine. It is hard to rate because I couldn't finish the story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good...and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you enjoy fantasy, great characterization, and like/don't mind some well-written sex scenes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! The characters are great and I particularly enjoy that there is no black and white, good vs evil. I like a few of the "bad" characters.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Flosnik – was your favorite?

    Phaedra, of course.


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

    They should make an HBO series!

    (17086)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Fun and enjoyable!"

    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top, for when you just need a pick me up.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The cruise part was HILARIOUS! I was jogging and burst out laughing...and continued jogging and laughing...people were nearby....and I think I frightened them.


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

    Her impressions, accents, and dry humor. Perfect narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh


    Any additional comments?

    I read this after the Game of Thrones books...much needed.
