Story reminded me of a cross between 2 video games: Final Fantasy and Fallout. Was a good escape read from the every day things we all deal with.

Reader did a good job and helped pass the time while painting my neighbors house.

Hostile in ways that a surface-dweller could never know, the tunnel-mazes of the Underdark challenge all who tread there. Among these souls are Drizzt Do'Urden and his magical cat, Guenhwyvar. Exiled from his drow homeland, Drizzt must fight for a new home in the boundless labyrinth. Meanwhile, he must watch for signs of pursuit - for the dark elves are not a forgiving race.

Drizzt stories are timeless. The reader rushed a lot of lines but did a good job differentiating the characters so it was still enjoyable to listen to.

First read Salvatore when I was a teenager. Stories are good decades later. Reader did a great job, also. If you like fantasy and haven't read or listened to RA Salvatore, you're missing out.

The year is 2026. China has taken over as the world's largest economy, while the United States, mired in an oil shortage, struggles to adjust to its diminished role. Then, a surprise attack throws the US into a chaos unseen since Pearl Harbor. As the enemy takes control, the survival of the nation will depend upon the most unlikely forces: the Navy's antiquated Ghost Fleet and a cadre of homegrown terrorists.

I do not know if it's the story itself or just the reader than has turned me off from this story. The only difference in the readers voice for different characters is he tries to sound a little deeper for certain male characters. Very very difficult for me to follow. I am also used to Tom Clancy stories so I am not sure if I have my expectations to high or if the readers voice just cause me to feel like I miss entire chapters. Maybe I'll try actually reading the book instead. I recommend others try that.
