    What made the experience of listening to Written in My Own Heart's Blood the most enjoyable?

    Diana Gabaldons writing is as always beautiful and Davinia Porter Brings the characters to breathtaking life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love them all but I have to say I really did enjoy William in this book.


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    She gives each character their own voice it's impossible to pick a favorite,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have, but its 44 hours long.


    Any additional comments?

    You really need to read or listen to all of the Outlander novels in order to appreciate the scope of the story. If you haven't read them yet, do it. You wont regret it.

  • A Shiver of Light: Merry Gentry, Book 9

    Merry Gentry pretends to be human. She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency. But all of this is just a disguise; in fact she is a princess of faerie, her real name is Meredith Nic Essus, and she had to flee the Dark Court of Faerie because of attempts on her life. In order to inherit her rightful crown, Merry needed to conceive an heir, a notoriously difficult task for the slow-reproducing Fey. In the 2009 novel Divine Misdemeanors, Merry had finally achieved that goal - and fans have been kept waiting all this time to find out what happens!

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

    No one it was that bad.


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    She has lost her ability to write an interesting story, its just disappointing after waiting so long to find out what happens to Merry and her men. The death of one of the best of her baby daddies (and my personal favorite) was just pointless, not to mention defying already established rules about how difficult the Sidhe are to kill. There were so many interesting tidbits that could have been explored, that would have made the book so much better, but alas LKH has so lost her touch, I doubt she could write a decent grocery list these days.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was terrible. Her english accent invaded every character to the point where the LA cops sounded like London Bobbies.


    What character would you cut from A Shiver of Light?

    Taranus, he's an imbecile, how he managed to indirectly cause the death of one of the main characters is beyond me. A stupider bogey man has never been written.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope, it pretty much sucked.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    Would you listen to The Undead Pool again? Why?

    I absolutely will listen to it again, it's that good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Trent, choosing to be true to himself instead of his species.


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

    MG was a great narrator as always.


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

    I did cry a little at the end, because I love Al, even if I never really considered him as a romantic partner for Rachel. His heartbreak was very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait for the final installment. After that I will read/listen to the entire series all over again.

    Would you try another book from Juliet Dark and/or Justine Eyre?

    yes


    Would you be willing to try another book from Juliet Dark? Why or why not?

    yes Book one Demon Lover had many things about it that I enjoyed, unfortunately books 2 and 3 weren't as good, but I would still be willing to give other books by this author a chance.


    What three words best describe Justine Eyre’s performance?

    She was very good at giving the females distinct voices. The male voices werent as distinctive.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If she had kept the dark gothic feel of the first book throughout the trilogy.

    Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover - an incubus - and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    After really enjoying book 1 I was looking forward to continuing the story. It was ok but not nearly as good as the first.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The heroines guilt.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was good, not the best I've heard but she does a credible job.


    Could you see The Demon Lover being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit the most enjoyable?

    I wanted to re-read this book before going to see the movie and I am so glad I did. The Narrator was wonderful. He SINGS the songs and very well I might add.


    What other book might you compare The Hobbit to and why?

    The Hobbit is the "perfect" fantasy novel. There is no other stand alone fantasy novel that holds a candle to it, in my opinion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The riddle sequence with Bilbo and Gollum is by far my favorite part.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    I'll probably will get the other books in this series from the library.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Did a very good job with voicing the different characters
