    In the imperial capital of the Mughal Empire, a traveler arrives at the court of Emperor Akbar. The traveler, Mogor dell'Amore, has a tale to tell, and as the words flow out of him, the tale's rich tapestry of power and desire begins to take on a life of its own.

    When I finally made it to the end I asked myself why. I still have no idea why I did not give up sooner. Too many names, places, repeated names and repeated places. On and on...

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

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

    The book started out great and was interesting. Unfortunately it then droned on and on with the usual psycho babble supported by Dr. so and so's experiment; and So and so's study that found...
    I gave up listening with about an hour to go. I could not stay awake.

    Webmind is an emerging consciousness that has befriended Caitlin Decter and grown eager to learn about her world. But Webmind has also come to the attention of WATCH - the secret government agency that monitors the Internet for any threat to the United States - and they're fully aware of Caitlin's involvement in its awakening.

    "Twilight with computers"
    Overall

    Lame book with annoying narration. Predictable characters, boring story. Nothing ever happens other than two teenagers kissing.

    The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners - a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life - has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life.

    Melinda says: "thought-provoking, engaging dystopic fiction"
    "Why am I listening to this?"
    Overall

    !/3 of the way through I asked myself "Why am I listening to this?" and I couldn't come up with a good answer. Turned it off and erased it.

    The first of a four-part audio series from Stephen King's best-selling book, Four Past Midnight. On a redeye flight from Los Angeles to Boston, only 11 passengers survive - but landing in a dead world makes them wish they hadn't.

    Liz C. says: "Story, yes; narrator, no"
    "Laughable"
    Overall

    Story was great but Willem Dafoe's narration was laughable. His attempts at women's voices is very , very bad. Almost ruined the book.
