At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

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....

What made the experience of listening to Hounded the most enjoyable?

This is a great book - light, fun, a little dirty and moves along. Perfect!

Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

The main character and his dog- But really, all of the characters are distictive.

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

It's not a sit-on-the-edge of your seat kind of book - but it is entertaining from start to finish.

Mystery writer and dabbling recreational sleuth Sophie Katz is head over heels in love--with a three-bedroom Victorian. She's just got to have it, despite a few drawbacks. Her slimy ex is the Realtor. The rich, creepy seller wants her to join San Francisco's spirited Specter Society. And her first tour of the house reveals, well, a lifeless body clutching a cameo with a disturbing history of its own.

This was an o.k. book. Had some sass. The plot had some good turns and kept me guessing right until the end. Interesting characters. Well read.

I really thought I was going to like this book, however, I'm on chapter 12 and I'm wondering if it will ever speed up. I think it's well written, but the descriptions are way to long and drawn out. I think there's an abridged version - maybe that would be better?
