    Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria Forester - even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that stone barrier, Tristran learns, lies Faerie . . . and the most exhilarating adventure of the young man's life.

    Story

    I LOVED the movie version of Stardust, and was delighted to find that it was based on a book. Sadly however, this is one of the few times (only 2 that I can think of, actually) where the book was NOT better than the movie. It turns out that some of the cleverest parts of the story were written in the screenplay... That being said, Neil Gaiman reads his story beautifully; it was a joy to listen to him.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    I feel a little bad about the harsh rating for the narration, as I am certain that the narrator would be wonderful... IN THE RIGHT ROLE. I understand that James Marsters might have been unavailable, but the choice to use John Glover was criminally negligent. I would buy the audiobook again in half a heartbeat if they would re-record it with Spike narrating...

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    What made the experience of listening to A Feast for Crows the most enjoyable?

    Incredibly entertaining series, and a wonderful narrator... until book 4. For some reason, Mr. Dotrice changed the voices he was using with several of the characters, and even changed the pronunciations of the their names. Very disconcerting. It's a shame he didn't listen to one of his earlier performances before starting the new book.

    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.
