    Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power - which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood. On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

    Story

    Ok, The series is pretty good overall, my biggest disappointment is all the wasted time talking about caff and sani-steams. As far as I know, in the SW universe caff DOESN'T EXIST!!! Blue milk, jawa juice, and yes even the sonic screwdriver (nice Who reference) are fine but all the HOURS spent looking for, asking for, making, serving, drinking, whining about not having CAFF really gets OLD really quick!!! And are all the references to taking showers REALLY NECESSARY?? SERIOUSLY, how many times in episode 1-6 do you see the characters taking showers and drinking coffee?? IT DOES NOT ADD TO OR MAKE THE STORY BETTER OR MOVE THE PLOT ALONG AT ALL, SO ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Yes, all beings clean themselves, eat, poop, and procreate, but unless it is an integral part of the story, can't we just assume that it happens and get on with it?? I mean if there is a particular scene where the characters are having dinner, that leads to drinks, and then to a little gratuitous procreation, then maybe a little more in the sani-steam THEN by all means write it in.......but this isn't a boring episode of seinfeld so how about a bit more action, and a LOT LESS superfluous bullshit......

  • Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder

    Homer's Odyssey is the once-in-a-lifetime story of an extraordinary cat and his human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limits on love, ability, or hope against overwhelming odds. By turns jubilant and moving, it's a memoir for anybody who's ever fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.

    Story

    As a cat lover, and a fan of Homer, I KNEW I'd love it!!! What I DIDN'T know was HOW MUCH I'd LOVE IT!!!!

    I drive a truck, and since we ordinarily drive 11 hours a day, the 9h 33m length was just about perfect for a days listening. I had no idea that I was going to laugh that HARD and that OFTEN!!! So hard in fact, i almost fell out of my seat SEVERAL times!!!!

    I give it 5 stars across the board.......THIS BOOK EARNED IT!!!!!

    LOVE YA GWEN.....and Homer......and Scarlett and Vashti....... ;-)

    A tale of archetypal heroes and sweeping adventures, of dragons and princes and evil wizards, here is epic fantasy as only Stephen King could envision it.

    Story

    The story wasn't bad, the reader wasn't BAD, but wow was it put together BAD!!!

    First, it seemed to pause/skip at every new chapter. and who's idea was it to put a new chapter every hundred words or so??? So what you get is a skip every 5 minutes or so.

    Could Bronson have maybe have put a TINY BIT of emotion into this read????
    Reminds me of the records we had to listen to in grade school........

    I HAD to finish it just to see how it turned out, but it was almost PAINFUL at times........

    PLEASE, REDO IT!!!! It could be ever so much BETTER!!!!

    Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and Ryu — Jane’s bloodsucking boyfriend — can’t let a major holiday go by without getting all gratuitous. An overwhelming dose of boyfriend interference and a last - minute ticket to Boston later, and Jane’s life is thrown off course.

    Story

    The first book started out pretty normal for a typical fantasy book, then went ALL mushy pretty quickly. These books are WAYYYY MORE romance than fantasy, and it has gotten to the point of ridiculousness!!!!

    Please, Nicole, make up your mind......either go FULL ROMANCE or FULL FANTASY......The story wouldnt be half bad if you just LEFT OUT all the kissy kissy crap!!

    Definitely NOT a series I will be continuing since there doesnt seem to be ANY chance of interaction between the two main characters without them ending up NAKED!!!

    I'm out.....
