    Take a wonderfully crazed excursion into the demented heart of a tropical paradise - a world of cargo cults, cannibals, mad scientists, ninjas, and talking fruit bats. Our bumbling hero is Tucker Case, a hopeless geek trapped in a cool guy's body, who makes a living as a pilot for the Mary Jean Cosmetics Corporation.

    Where does Island of the Sequined Love Nun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top 3 or 4, without question.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Island of the Sequined Love Nun?

    *Spoiler Alert*

    When Tuck steals a jet.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    The narrator really nails many of the characters on an emotional level. His voice conveys their emotions and mannerisms extremely well.


    If you could take any character from Island of the Sequined Love Nun out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Beth, because watching her devious mind work would be enlightening. And besides, there's nothing wrong with having a lovely lady on your arm at dinner!


    Any additional comments?

    Christopher Moore is fantastic and this story doesn't disappoint!

    Drizzt Do’Urden has settled in the windswept towns of Icewind Dale. There, he encounters a young barbarian named Wulfgar, captured in a raid and made the ward of a grizzled dwarf name Bruenor. With Drizzt’s help, Wulfgar will grow from a feral child to a man with the heart of a dwarf, the instincts of a savage, and the soul of a hero. But it will take even more than that to defeat the demonic power of Crenshininbon, the fabled Crystal Shard.

    Where does The Crystal Shard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Upper-middle tier.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Like most folks, I really connected with Drizzt. I think many of us have moments where we feel like singular bastions of decency in a world that needs fixing. He is unwaveringly loyal and has a strong moral compass - I can get behind a character like that!


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    I truly enjoyed Mr. Bevine's voice talents for the various characters, along with the ease applied to speaking unusual words and names that are frequent fare in the fantasy genre.


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

    No, but that didn't make the story any less enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be getting the balance of the Icewind Dale trilogy, so that says something :-)

  • Ready Player One

    Story
    (9971)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    What did you love best about Ready Player One?

    Without question, the fond nostalgia that frequent 80's and early 90's references bring to mind. It's also just a fun story - and that's a high compliment indeed!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aech, because of the unexpected character identity when revealed.


    What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?

    His ever-present enthusiasm for both the genre and time period make the listening experience wonderful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ** Spoliers**



    When Shoto gives Wade the beta Capsule after Daito's death.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love the 80's and are content with a fun story that doesn't take itself too seriously, this is for you.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Story

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    What made the experience of listening to Lamb the most enjoyable?

    The narration was superb and the story is sublime.


    What other book might you compare Lamb to and why?

    Christopher Moore is in a special class of humor writers all his own and Lamb may be his best story ever.


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

    The voices are tremendous and bring the characters to life, which really makes the Audible experience meaningfully better than simply reading this story.


    If you could take any character from Lamb out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Biff, because I'm sure there's more to tell.

    Story

    Dimension of Miracles is a satirical science fiction novel first published by Dell in 1968. It's about Tom Carmody, a New Yorker who, thanks to a computer error, wins the main prize in the Intergalactic Sweepstakes. Tom claims his prize before the error is discovered and is allowed to keep it. However, since Tom is a human from Earth without galactic status and no space traveling experience, he has no homing instinct that can guide him back to Earth once his odyssey begins - and the galactic lottery organizers cannot transport him home.

    Author Ronda Del Boccio says: "Hilarious! - Could have been written this year"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It just lacked ongoing appeal for me and I wasn't in a tremendous hurry to resume the story following interruptions.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was just OK. It didn't leave me wanting more, but was fine for the story as written.


    What about John Hodgman’s performance did you like?

    The voices, tone, and inflection were great.


    Did Dimension of Miracles inspire you to do anything?

    No, not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved many of the transient characters, but just never fell in love with the protagonist.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    What did you love best about Ex-Heroes?

    This was a pretty unique combination of superheroes and zombies. Despite the occasional situation/remark that was not suitable for children, I had a blast listening to this with my middle school-age son! We took it on a road trip and the miles zoomed by without notice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The background on Cerberus and her introduction through a military mission.


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

    Nothing extreme, but high entertainment if you suspend disbelief and simply enjoy the story.
