Publisher's Summary

After the last page is turned and the cover closed on a great book, is it really over? Ever wonder what happens to Harry Potter after, say, 20 years of marriage and a steady government gig? Or what Karl Marx would say about today's financial crisis? What did Scarlett O'Hara really think about tomorrow?

What comes after "ever after?"

Book: The Sequel dares to answer these burning questions with imagined first sentences from would-be follow-ups to classics from The Bible to The Lord of the Rings, and from Green Eggs to Hamlet.

A delicious and unexpected return engagement from such favorite characters as Jane Eyre, Ebenezer Scrooge, Jay Gatsby, Holden Caulfield, Wilbur the Pig, and Captain Ahab, Book: The Sequel is a perfect gift for book lovers everywhere - or for anyone to whom "The End" is simply the starting point for the imagination.

    "Great Idea, Poor Audiobook."

    Sadly, I have to say the Book: The Sequel just doesn’t work in an audiobook format.

    The “faux-pening” lines come so fast there is just no time to digest or enjoy them. And if you need time to think about any of the more obscure references – you just won’t be able to.

    Worst of all, the two of the three clearly amateur narrators are simply atrocious. One has a speech impediment and the woman uses random and unbearable accents that undercut the wit.

    Now, some of the crowd-sourced humour definitely misses the mark but there is some great satire and laughs to be had so my complaints are not with the content.

    I’ll definitely pick up Book: The Sequel as a hardcopy so it can be appreciated as a coffee table book for casual perusal or a dinner-party conversation starter where I think it can really shine.
