I have tried several times to listen to this novel and each time I get unbearably bored with it in about a quarter of an hour.

Will definitely get the next book in the series. Excellent listen. The narrarator, Oliver Wyman, did a wonderful job.

What did you love best about Hellhole: Awakening?

Character depth and political intrigue in a science fiction setting.

Any additional comments?

I really love this series - it reminds me distinctly of another series that Anderson wrote but I loved that series too so that was ok for me. The only issue I had at all with this novel is I wanted to the Antagonist on the throne to be less cartoonish and have more depth.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If I can change anything I would have made the heroine substantially less - um - combative?

Would you be willing to try another book from Jacquelyn Frank? Why or why not?

Yes, I think I would try another one but I would be hesitant. I absolutely loved the premise just not the execution.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Xe Sands?

narrator was fine.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I actually think this would make a better movie than audiobook so I might.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It was just another zombie book until I really starting to enjoy the main character and his attitude. I am a fan of Mark Tufo and this had almost the feel (not as much humor) as some of his books.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't remember a boring section in the entire book.

What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

His tone and inflection carried the main character well.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the parody of Burroughs work. It was one of the better audiobooks I have listened to this year (if listened to with a view towards its humor). I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

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

No, I went for a few days without to it; however, it's still a great story.

Would you try another book from David Weber and/or Khristine Hvam?

I love David Webers' novels so yes, I absolutely would. However, I like his military novels and this just didn't add up. I did like the backstory on Honor Harrington and her "cat" so that filled in some information.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Beautiful Friendship?

That's the thing - The book flowed well, listened well there just wasn't anything memorable about it. I guess I would have to say the end scenes in the woods were perhaps the best written - definitely had the feel of David Webers normal style.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Hard to say as it would be a movie geared towards teens.

Would you consider the audio edition of Ashes to be better than the print version?

Yes, the characters came off a little less shallow in the audiobook.

What other book might you compare Ashes to and why?

The first in the Mark Tufo series without the humor? The book reminded me a lot of a fast read harlequin novel just without the romance.

Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

The soldier that the protagonist meets and then travels with. The female protagonist was a bit too - whiny? - for my taste.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. I enjoyed the base premise of a boy who had been "lost" and came back to reclaim his power.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The White Mists of Power?

It would have to be the revelation of the bards identity at the dinner.

What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

I liked that the readers voice was not obtrusive. It made getting into the story much easier.

What made the experience of listening to A Game of Thrones the most enjoyable?

The action was always moving forward. The vignette style of the book made the extremely long novel easier to pause in spots. It had a little bit of everything: Byzantine political drama, war, fighting, zombies. What's not to like?

What other book might you compare A Game of Thrones to and why?

I don't have a comparison.

Which character – as performed by Roy Dotrice – was your favorite?

Tyrion is definitely my favorite character, a heroic anti-hero. I least liked Danaris in this novel. She becomes much more likable in subsequent novels though.

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

Yes, I would have liked to listen to this book in one sitting; however, that's darn near impossible.
