    Here are three special episodes of The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant (The Office, Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington.

    I love the raw, spontaneous nature of their exchanges... and thanks to the animated HBO series, I could picture much of this in my head as well... but the audio needs balancing. Ricky's laugh is SO loud, and Karl's talking sometimes so mumbled, that it is difficult to find a good volume.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

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

    YES! If you are even remotely interested in the HBO series, sci-fi/fantasy books or movies, or a fan of the Tolkien genre, you will love this.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Game of Thrones?

    The death of Robert, the finding of the wolves... too many to mention here!


    Which character – as performed by Roy Dotrice – was your favorite?

    Tyrion Lannister ... absolutely amazing!


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

    Both... out loud!


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent, excellent, excellent narration! Very much appreciated with the vast number of characters within the story.

  • How the Irish Saved Civilization

    Thanks to Thomas Cahill, the pivotal era called the "dark ages" is brought back to vibrant life, its personages portrayed in all their seemingly contemporary humanity, its issues simply and compellingly spelled out. How the Irish Saved Civilization will change forever the way we look at our past, and ourselves. Read by critically-acclaimed actor Liam Neeson.

    What disappointed you about How the Irish Saved Civilization?

    I love the book, love the history, love the story, and of course, love the narrator (Liam Neeson)... but the audio quality of the recording was so horrible!!! Very difficult to understand, especially when played over my car's speakers through the AUX. Other audible selections have no problems whatsoever with that. But this one was ghastly. I spent so much time trying to make the audio understandable, I missed half the telling of it. What a shame. :-(


    Would you be willing to try another one of Liam Neeson’s performances?

    YES! But ONLY on a better quality recording!!!


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

    Frustration... that I could not hear it clearly.
