Mahan's ready for new adventures - just as the gaming world of Barliona thought it was about to reenter its old comfortable rut. The winds of the Dark Forest have finally died down; Altameda has recognized its new owner while Geranika is nursing new schemes of global destruction. Would Mahan be happy with this predictable old life? We think not!

I've read the entire series and while not exactly higher literature, it's been very entertaining to read. But this is the last book in the series, and the way it ends is lazy, uninspired and depressing. Feeling rather ambivalent about the entire series now...

Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

An absolutely brilliant and hilarious book. Fresh, adorable, weird and likeable comes to mind. Only tanked a bit as the story progresses to her award show experiences where it slightly drops to name dropping, but that might just be me.

Better than all the other female comedian books, save Tina Fey maybe.

Das Meisterwerk von Michael Ende: "Die unendliche Geschichte" von Michael Ende gehört zu den bekanntesten Jugendbüchern der Welt und handelt von der Kraft der Phantasie. Gert Heidenreich macht aus der Geschichte ein magisches Hörbuch.

Delicious mix between the predictability of a fairy tale and the surprises, character growth and touching moments of a truly good story.
