Isabelle Martinez was instantly fascinated by the sexy Coyote Breed she met at the bar, but her sensual flirtation with him was cut short when she saw the man who'd attacked her arrive at the bar. Breed enforcer Malachi Morgan was entranced by Isabelle's mix of shyness and boldness, and he was determined to chase and play with his sensual prey. But he could tell she'd been hurt before by a man, and he vowed that Isabelle was now his to protect and love, even as if it meant going against her family and his orders.

Where does The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

How did I ever consider my self a fan of SiFi and not read this book? I am a shamed, but have rectified the situation. This is a quirky book which is the foundation of so much SiFi culture. I then jumped to the 1980's BBC presentation and found the book better. Good audio and characterizations. If you are considering the title, Go For It! It's cheese, campy and an essential for this genera.

What other book might you compare The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to and why?

In the vain of Monty Python.

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

Still a fish tale

Being forced to read this in school I thought I would give it another try as an adult. I can appreciate it, but I didn't like it. The imagery is great, the symbolism to Christ's trials is evident throughout the book and Donald Sutherland doesn't break a sweat in regards to his narration -very quite, steady and well, boring. The voice is a good fit to the monotonous story. All in all it's still a fish tale

"It was the best of times and the worst of times." In one of the most famous openings of any novel, Dickens masterfully presents the turmoil of the French Revolution, which is the backdrop for a novel of love, patience, hope, and self-sacrifice. This version is read by Anton Lesser, whose award-winning Dickens recordings in their abridged form has now resulted in the opportunity to read the full unabridged text.

Buck is living the good life in the soft South, when he is snatched and transported to the savagery of the Northland. There, the Klondike gold rush has brought out rough basic instincts of survival in men - and dogs. He adjusts to the gruelling regime of a sled dog, which almost kills him, but he survives to find a new and fulfilling way of life. The Call of the Wild is not only a classic tale, but also an enduring masterpiece of the inescapable laws of nature. Now in unabridged form in a new reading by William Roberts

Such violence; I was remembering that I read this story as a youth and thought it was no big deal, but now, wow...
Props for a classic story that speaks to not only man's harsh actions but animals as well. Lost of violence and cruelty that is presented as a part of real life. The story is actually bland being a gold rush and sled dog story going here and there, but the interactions and relationships between the characters is what rips at your core and makes it a great listen. Good audio quality.

Yet the relationship between dogs and humans remains a fascinating mystery, as no one really knows what goes on in the canine mind. Now, in Inside of a Dog, Alexandra Horowitz fuses her perspectives as both scientist and dog owner to deliver a fresh look at the world of dogs - as seen from the animal's point of view.

I was drawn to this book by the cover art and that I have three labs at home. The book seems like the dissertation of a PhD candidate, with the "author's note" thrown in for the regular folk. When the author is being real its great, when she is being high falutent explaining her research it drags like a textbook.

In The Murder of Tut, James Patterson and Martin Dugard chronicle their epic quest to find out what happened to the boy-king. They comb through the evidence--X-rays, Carter's files, forensic clues--and scavenge for overlooked data to piece together the details of his life and death. The result is a true crime tale of intrigue, betrayal, and usurpation that presents a compelling case that King Tut's death was anything but natural.

Such a cool idea to write about King Tut, but it just didn't run as deep as I would have liked it too. The three time periods were OK, could have use just two Howard Carter's and Tut's timeline. Overall worth a credit --better yet, worth a CD burn and passing it to your friends!

George Eliot's first full-length novel is the moving, realistic portrait of three people troubled by unwise love. Adam Bede is a hardy young carpenter who cares for his aging mother. His one weakness is the woman he loves blindly: the trifling town beauty, Hetty Sorrel, who delights only in her baubles - and the delusion that the careless Captain Donnithorne may ask for her hand.

It's like ripping off the band aid slowly. I'm going to read some classics now. Please not more, writing is bland and basic. Story line is fantastic and un-climatic at the same time. That’s hard to do, but by all means read on and see for yourself.
