    Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine, number-one New York Times best-selling author George R. R. Martin is a giant in the field of fantasy literature and one of the most exciting storytellers of our time. Now he delivers a rare treat for listeners: a compendium of his shorter works, collected into two stunning volumes, that offers fascinating insight into his journey from young writer to award-winning master.

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

    I would, even though I disliked most of the sci-fi stories. I'm pretty sure most of my friends would..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreamsongs (Unabridged Selections)?

    Ice Dragon. A simply beautiful story, I just had to listen to it in a single setting.


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

    Roy Dotrice. After listening to A Song of Ice and Fire he has definitely become one of my favorite narrators, although his narration of A Feast for Crows and A Dance of Dragons was poor compared to his earlier narrations. I'm a big ASoIaF fan, so I suppose that influences my opinion of this book (:

  • The Fault in Our Stars

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

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

    A better story line, without terminally ill Prince Charming.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Green again?

    Doubt it


    What aspect of Kate Rudd’s performance would you have changed?

    Prince Charming, hated his voice and his character. Overall a good performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bored to sad, to angry. Bored because I felt half the story was about a typical sad teenager with the one exception, she has cancer. Sad because it's a sad story I guess. Angry because I spent my one free token in this book and everyone told me I just 'have' to read it.
