Joel Osteen's brand of inspiration, positive and up beat messages have changed the lives of millions of people around the world and he continues to do so in this book. It's filled with positive messages about love, hope and forgiveness giving in Joel's signature down to Earth style. I loved it.

I had heard a lot of positive things about the Dresen Files series from friends before I had bought this book. I was surprise to see that the characters were cookie-cutter and the plot was something that a middle schooler came up with. The performance with excellent it's just too bad that the story was mediocre. I would not recommend this book.

This book is for the geeks out there. If you know a lot about Star Wars already or nothing then this book is for you. It is read in a fun, entertain but informative fashion like your favorite uncle telling you all the crazy pranks he pulled in high school or something. It's detailed but not so detailed that you need to sit down and concentrate on every detail in order to enjoy the book. I listened to this while cleaning my house on the weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly.

This is another great book by our favorite detective vampires duo and this time he brought along his pet. All they need is a van and some snacks!! This book is such a fun read and the narrator does a great job with all of the character voices. I love all of Hartness's snappy dialogs and his reference to current events. It is super fun read and entertaining.

Would you consider the audio edition of Back in Black to be better than the print version?

This is a fun series and it doesn't require a lot of attention or concentration. Some series are too detailed and requires you to give all your concentration to it. You can listen to this while you are cooking or doing house chores and still get the over all view of things. I love all of Hartness' modern day cultural references such as Star Wars and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's super fun and lots of laugh. if you're looking for more intellectual boring books then these aren't the droids you're looking for. if you just need a few hours to relax and not think too much then I recommend this highly.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Back in Black?

the cultural reference such as dungeons and Dragons and Star war quotes. I love people that totally geek out on Star Wars and aren't ashamed of it!

Which character – as performed by Nick J. Russo – was your favorite?

I love Lilith the skin tight clothing wearing bitch who seduces anything and everything with a heartbeat.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures meets Buffy the Vampire

Any additional comments?

Get the whole series if you haven't already gotten it! Use the Force!

Its important to stay focus and keep the principles of attraction in your mind at all times when you are manifesting. While this book offers you nothing you may not have ever heard before but it does explain it in a way just different enough to give you a little more depth into the universal law. Its a great additional along with Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, Bob Proctor, etc. highly recommended.

What can I say-it's Tom Hiddleston narrating a book. If he wants 2 read an instruction manual for computer programing-I'd buy it! On a serious note, it's not a bad delivery-there are better narrators out here. He can sometimes sound dead-pan & stiff but overall enjoyable!

What did you love best about The Shadow of the Wind?

I love the different vivid characters in the book and the author really allowed their personality to really shine! He's definitely a great character writer but the story is okay.
