    What did you love best about The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren?

    educational,compelling,and awe inspiring scary.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    that it is based on real, true cases


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

    no, first time listen to anything by Todd


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

    oh yes, warning to all, this is not even close to a "light listen". this is serious stuff, I mean the events that take place in this book will leave you beyond uneasy. if you scare easy or you are not in a good place right now, DO NOT GET THIS AUDIO BOOK! I know you have heard this before, macho b.s. but I don't scare easy. this stuff will get to you.
    ok, I have done my duty. this is my only review. it is because I truly felt it was important to give folks a warning. don't get me wrong its a great listen, I gave it the 5 star treatment. just wanted to throw that in, incase someone misunderstood my point.


    Any additional comments?

    Ed and Lorraine Warren are to be appreciated and respected. Who could do this stuff with their life and do it so selfless. being more aware than just about anyone at the risk. thank God for his special troopers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course, I think it is a unique and refreshing fantasy series. I ran across the first book in the series by accident and couldn't stop grinning at my rare find. It is just cool and badass!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love them all.


    What about David de Vries’s performance did you like?

    Dave is right on and I find him to be one of the best.


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

    Made me happy ;that for once when I tried an unknown, I hit the mark.

    A pyramid predating all known cultures appears without warning. Its discovery throws into question everything we know about the origins of mankind. Inside lies incredible technology, proof of a culture far more advanced than our own. Something dark lurks within, eager to resume a war as old as mankind. When it is unleashed it heralds the end of our species’ reign.

    What did you like best about No Such Thing As Werewolves? What did you like least?

    I am struggling to finish. So much going on and nothing!


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

    When I saw werewolves and good ratings I was excited. I am so sick of zombie crap. Then it just falls flat. Lame. Why is it so difficult for authors to write a good werewolf novel?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Like the book just flat.


    Could you see No Such Thing As Werewolves being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope not!

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Game of Thrones to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    That is impossible to choose. Martin can make a character mentioned in one sentence interesting.


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    Everything! He was born to narrate this series.


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

    Yes,although physically impossible.


    Any additional comments?

    The only con about this series is, you will compare every other fantasy novel to "songs of ice and fire" and realize you will never find anything close. It really deserves its own category because it is not fair to other authors. I really doubt there will ever be anything written to top this series.

    Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

    If you could sum up Tower Lord in three words, what would they be?

    This series rules


    What other book might you compare Tower Lord to and why?

    Maybe a combo of "game of thrones" and "warded man".


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

    Like all good narrators,he makes the audiobook a movie in your mind.


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

    The entire story hit the mark.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love epic fantasy,then this series is a no brainer! If anyone does not like this series,then they have no buisiness buying a epic fantasy novel.

    What did you like best about The Godling Chronicles: Of Gods and Elves, Book 2? What did you like least?

    Cover art is about all I can say that I like about this book.
    Boring! Just goes on and on with nothing to engage. It is a y.a. story that audible placed in adult genre to fill in gaps. They do this often.


    What was most disappointing about Brian D. Anderson’s story?

    Lack of action! Boring lame characters.


    What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

    His reading was good but too mature for this story.


    Was The Godling Chronicles: Of Gods and Elves, Book 2 worth the listening time?

    No,not for me. Others rate it high ,so maybe it's just my taste. Sometimes it happens,a book will be a favorite of many and I just don't see it.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be fooled by cool cover art! "Don't judge book by cover" , will I ever learn?

    Only one priest can battle the ultimate evil!

    An evil as ancient as time itself has arisen and taken root in New York City. Father Michael, the mysterious undead defender of the Church, answers the call to action from the Vatican, while Cain, a malevolent wraith that feeds on fear and blood, has taken the life and form of the city's mayor and readies a demonic army to ignite the apocalypse.

    What disappointed you about Evil Eternal?

    The narrator!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Could not finish,due to pathetic narration.


    What didn’t you like about Seth Michael Donsky’s performance?

    Simply put,ridicules cartoon voices.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Evil Eternal?

    Overdone in a lot of ways. The main premise of book could have been done right and it would have made for a unique religious fueled horror.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible continues to disappoint for those who enjoy good horror/paranormal fantasy. The only choices are female themed romance,gay or just bad!
