    For 500 years, the survivors of the Great Wars lived peacefully in a valley sanctuary shielded by powerful magic from the blighted and dangerous outside world. But the enchanted barriers have crumbled, the borders have been breached by predators, and the threat of annihilation looms large once more. Sider Ament, bearer of the last black staff and its profound power, devoted his life to protecting the valley and its inhabitants - and, in his final moments, gave stewardship of the black staff to the young Tracker Panterra Qu.

    What disappointed you about The Measure of the Magic?

    The story was more than disappointing. Slow to start, dragged on and on, boring. The performance was mediocre at best. I expected more from Terry Brooks.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Brooks again?

    Absolutely. Most of his books have hit the mark and kept my interest.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes. His characters voices were ... irritating.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Measure of the Magic?

    I couldn't listen to the whole thing. My mind wandered. I usually listen while working in the garden or doing house work and I found myself having to go back to re-listen because my mind wandered.

    It's starting to sound the same! The senator is always cranky. The captain of the Dauntless is always awestruck. Black Jack is having the same struggles. Are we going somewhere with this?

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    I thought surely it can't be as bad as the reviews given. Well it can. It was. The struggles in the relationship were not, in my opinion, met with an appropriate culmination. The story is too drawn out, the characters are too unhappy and the ending is un-satisfying. Not a match for the two previous books. If they make book 3 into a movie I hope it looks nothing like the book.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Have loved this book and have been reading it since I was a very young girl. Tolkien is an exceptional writer and Inglis brings his characters to life beautifully. Will listen to this performance over and over again as long as my devices will play them.
