    Komarr could be a garden with 1,000 more years' work, or an uninhabitable wasteland if the terraforming fails. Now, the solar mirror vital to the terraforming of the conquered planet has been shattered by a ship hurtling off course. The emperor of Barrayar sends his newest imperial auditor, Lord Miles Vorkosigan, to find out why.

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

    I've read every book in the series, and I got my mother (who's 80) to read them, too. Fun, sweet, very well written. Komarr just pushes Miles' story along even more. READ THEM ALL!


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    He's always great.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read Bujold's Vorkosigan series, and you love science fiction, then get them all!

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story! Everything was cliche: tired, bored private investigator with interesting ability; tough, beautiful cop; big, bad evil man; even that talking skull was cliche. I couldn't listen to more than a couple of hours of it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Butcher again?

    I would be willing to see if he could do better with another book. Maybe this was his first try...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He kept smacking his lips or something...it really bothered me, but maybe it won't bother everybody.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't get far enough into it to find any redeeming qualities.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 5!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all of the characters. Stephen King is an amazing writer, and I love the way he draws all of his characters...even the ones we meet only once or twice.


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have, but I would love to.


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

    It made me happy and sad -- exactly when King wanted me to be happy or sad or concerned or stressed. He's the master writer and can get those emotions across and into his readers.

    Loved it!

    The chartered Zarathustra Company had it all their way. Their charter was for a Class III uninhabited planet, which Zarathustra was, and it meant they owned the planet lock stock and barrel. They exploited it, developed it and reaped the huge profits from it without interference from the Colonial Government. Then Jack Holloway, a sunstone prospector, appeared on the scene with his family of Fuzzies and the passionate conviction that they were not cute animals but little people.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think children would like it...young children. Even teens will get tired of it. I've heard it won some awards. Maybe so; the writing is good. But the story is beyond elementary.


    What was most disappointing about H. Beam Piper’s story?

    It was way too elementary. I thought I was getting a book for an adult reader.


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

    He has a good voice, and he emotes sympathy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Little Fuzzy?

    The story isn't bad. I'd just make sure people understand they're buying a children's book. Maybe it was there and I just missed it.

    Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans.

    What made the experience of listening to We Few the most enjoyable?

    this was a well-written, very entertaining book! I even loved the battle scenes and enjoyed seeing how the Prince's soldiers changed their tactics to meet the varying tactics of the enemies they fought. Each character was nuanced, and by the end of the series I was cheering for them all. Fun sci-fi, fun military science, fun hero!!


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Gabrielle de Cuir ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to the three books that precede this in the series. Each is just as good as the next!


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

    Spoiler alert: when Prince Roger and his martial staff enter into the queen's presence at the end of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like sci-fi, get it. It's as fun as Buchold's Miles Vorkosigan novels, but much more intense.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Would you listen to A Discovery of Witches again? Why?

    Yes. The story was interesting and approched the witch vs. vampire conundrum in a manner that was unexpected. And, importantly to me, the writing was well done.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone interested in fantastic, magical stories will enjoy this!
