Though C.S. Lewis speaks in terms that aren't common to the English language of today, he still brings intelligent insight into prayer and all its many facets. His dialogue between himself and Malcolm is very entertaining, a reflection of conversations between friends. I definitely recommend Letters to Malcolm for a different approach to a theological topic from a logical perspective.
The Magicians was an interesting audiobook. It had a good storyline, great character development, but sort of just flopped at the end. There is obviously a sequel, so I hope it leaves a better taste in my mouth, because this one just wasn't doing it for me.
When I heard that J.K. Rowling was writing another book, I was overjoyed! Being a Harry Potter fan, I was anxious to continue in the fantasy of the wizarding world. Boy, was I taken by surprise! This is definitely a book for adults. I say this because there are such graphic scenes, that are so close to real-life events that could happen, it makes it unnerving. However, the story was entertaining enough to keep me engaged, after I realized this wasn't a fantasy story. Rowling does well at developing characters and their interactions with one another made me want to find out what happens to them all. I recommend this to anyone who understands that this is a separate genre than Harry Potter, but yet still keeps you wanting to listen to more.
After reading quite a few of Nicholas Sparks works, I once again was pulled in to the story and the romance, and couldn't stop listening! The characters of Logan and Beth were simply made for each other, so you're dying to know how it all plays out. Kudos to John Bedford Lloyd for his narration as well as character voices, especially reading from 3 different points of view.
