The Entropy Effect was an enjoyable enough listen for what it was worth. Leonard Nimoy and George Takei, along with the familiar sounds of the enterprise and the original music made to accompany the narration, made this abridged audio book very entertaining. Just in case the guys and gals from Audible read these reviews, I would enjoy listening to a full unabridged Star Trek Novel though.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back - though the price will be bloody and terrible...and there will certainly be hell to pay.

The novella from Clive Barker which inspired the Hellraiser series is just as uninhibited and frightful as the movies and then some. I knew Clive Barker was a writer but what I didn't know was that he is a damn good one. The novella gives the reader more insight into the Schism than the first Hellraiser movie, which will enthrall the fans. The narrator performed admirably and made the recording come to life. I will listen again.

There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

Narrator Dan Stevens ( Downton Abbey) presents an uncanny performance of Mary Shelley's timeless gothic novel, an epic battle between man and monster at its greatest literary pitch. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor to the very brink of madness. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship, scientific hubris, and horror.

Dan Steven's narration was brilliant. His voice for Frankenstein's creation was haunting. This was the first time I've heard Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and I enjoyed every minute of this memorable masterpiece. My heart ached for Victor and his monster both. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is rival only to Bram Stoker's Dracula.

The narration as always was exceptional. I did however find the final book in the Icewind Dale trilogy a little hard to finish. I found myself bored at times. Salvador is probably the best Forgotten Realms author but I find myself guessing what the characters will do next. It was not very surprising and the only thing I found interesting enough to keep me listening was Artemis Entreri the Assassin. The Halflings Gem is a good book but it will probably be awhile before I listen to the audio book or read it again.

Drizzt Do'Urden struggles with his own inner voices, voices that call him back to the pitiless depths of the Underdark. But louder still are the voices of his newfound friends, and the dream that drives Bruenor Battlehammer on to reclaim Mithral Hall. Time and again they're told to turn back, that some dreams can never be fulfilled, but on they fight - together.

As always the narrator did an excellent job. I enjoyed this book more than I enjoyed the Crystal Shard. Unlike the first book the tempo in Streams of Silver is more balanced with more interesting dialogue between characters and the battles more descriptive and in a way more flexible. If Salvatore wrote this book immediately after the Crystal Shard he improved dramatically in his writing style.
