    Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

    Overall

    Definately not for the family. Sexually graphic. Lots of profanity. Not really the Christmas book I was looking for.

    Artemis is at boarding school in Ireland when he receives an urgent e-mail from Russia. In it is a plea from a man who has been kidnapped by the Russian Mafia: his father. As Artemis rushes to his rescue, he is stopped by a familiar nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police. But this time, instead of battling the fairies, he is going to have to join forces with them if he wants to save one of the few people in the world he loves.

    Overall

    Eoin Colfer does it again. His attention to detail paints the fairy world beautifully. You are able to visualize and understand everything he writes. Fairies have always seemed girlish to me. But not now. Eoin Colfer has given me a whole new outlook on the little people. This book is packed with adventure and has a heartwarming touch. Get this book, and enjoy! For children and adults!

    If you have not read Artemis Fowl, I recommend starting there first. The first book provides much to the plot of this book. You are sure to enjoy them both.

    Each story in this popular and critically acclaimed series has been read by the talented actor, Victor Garber. Now fans who can't get enough of the vampire bunny, Bunnicula, will have something new to add to their collection.

    Overall

    The stories are great! A family finds a bunny at the movies - Dracula. The family dog tells you the story of how one rabbit came to change their lives forever. The banter between the cat and dog will crack you up. The entire family will love these books. Who knew a vampire book could be so fun loving.

    I recommend this listen! Enjoy.

    After his last run-in with the fairies, Artemis Fowl had his mind wiped of his memories of the world below ground. Any goodness he had grudgingly learned is now gone, and the young genius has reverted to his criminal lifestyle.

    "I Love Fairy Technology!!"
    Overall

    I absolutely love this series, and this book is no exception. If you have enjoyed the previous 3 books in the collection, this one is a guarantee! Eoin Colfer has a magical ability to describe the human and fairy technology and make me feel as if I understand and could use it myself! I wish he could have been my science teacher!

    Not read any of the Artemis Fowl collection yet? I recommend you do. The series will entertain children and adults. But as great as this book is, you will want to wait and read them in order. This book, more than any of the others, will require previous Artemis Fowl reading. I would tell you more about the book itself, but I don't want to ruin anything for you. And if you have a child that hasn't found reading enjoyable yet, your child hasn't read (or heard) Artemis Fowl.

    Stop thinking about it! This is a great book. You WILL enjoy it.

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "And I mean Everything!"
    Overall

    Let's just say it starts with the smallest atom and works its way up. I was looking for fun and interesting tid bits about our past (known past) our history. This deals a lot with scientific theory. I found somethings interesting. I was however bored through most of it, and felt like I was back in my freshman highschool science class. The book just wasn't my cup of tea.

    In the future, Cosmo Hill breaks out of an orphanage with the help of the Supernaturalists, a motley crew of kids who all have the same special ability as Cosmo: they can see supernatural Parasites, creatures that feed on the life force of humans. The Supernaturalists patrol the city at night, hunting the Parasites in hopes of saving what is left of humanity in Satellite City. Or so they think. The Supernaturalists soon find themselves caught in a web far more complicated than they imagined

    "You Have To Love Sci-Fi"
    Overall

    Although I am not the biggest Sci-Fi fan, I did enjoy Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series immensely and thought that I would give this book a chance. I liked it. The story was really out there! I definately hope that this is not our future. But if it is, I hope the Supernaturalist are around to help us. I would recommend the book to children over the age of 12. There are some very adult issues (death, battle, and legal mistreatment of orphans). There is a very exciting twist near the end - I won't give it away - but it was a big, unexpected twist. I would recommend to others (over 12 of course). I would also highly recomment Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series. Delightful series for all ages. I dare say better than Harry Potter!

    After being held prisoner for years, Artemis Fowl's father has finally come home. He is a new man, an honest man, much to Artemis's horror. He makes his son promise to give up his life of crime, and Artemis has to go along with it. But not until he has completed one last scheme.

    I have loved the entire collection. If you liked the first two, this one is a guarantee. I won't ruin it for you, but this ending is great! Don't think about it, get it! And if you haven't read the first two, stop, go back and start with Artemis Fowl. You just can't start here, and you wouldn't want to. The first two are necessary reads to get the most out of this one, and true delight to read to boot.

    Don't get caught with your pants down! Experts provide step-by-step instructions on what you need to know FAST: How to fend off a pickup artist, how to remove difficult clothing, how to fend off an obsessive ex, and how to determine if your date is an axe murderer. Tasteful and useful, and with a handy appendix of body language, pickup lines, and useful excuses, this is the book you need when you wake up next to someone whose name you can't remember.

    "It sounded funny! I was wrong."
    Overall

    I was looking for tips such as "what to do if you spill wine on yourself during a date" or "quick tips for fresh breath," maybe even "what to do if you can't rise to the occasion." That isn't what the book was about at all. The book spent chapters telling you how to escape through the kitchen or bathroom windows of restaurants when you don't like your date. How to ask the restaurant if you and your date can wash dishes to pay for your tab. How to ditch dates you don't like via disguise and lies. I found myself wanting to yell "grow up" or "duh" through the entire book (the 3/4 I listened to rather). I don't suggest it. But that's just my opinion.

    Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genuis, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories, they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure.

    Overall

    If you liked Harry Potter you will love this book. If you didn't like Harry Potter, you will still love this book. Funny, creative, the entire story will keep you wanting more. Be sure to listen to this story while you have a lot of time. You wont be able to turn it off! I don't want to tell you about the story. I don't want to ruin a great thing. Enjoy!
