Who is Nola Brown? Nola is a mystery. Nola is trouble. And Nola is supposed to be dead. Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.

I am a huge fan of Brad's but I don't know if it was just the same orator that bored the hell out of me, he is so monotone it's mundane - or if it was just the same type of plot that just didn't do it for me. I pushed and pushed to try and get to the end but it just felt sluggish and stupid... I wish I could feel differently but it just didn't happen. I don't know how it ended and I really don't care as long as I didn't have to hear that guys stupid voice anymore. :(

From Mallory Ortberg comes a collection of darkly mischievous stories based on classic fairy tales. Adapted from her beloved "Children's Stories Made Horrific" series, The Merry Spinster takes up the trademark wit that endeared Ortberg to fans of both The Toast and her best-selling debut Texts from Jane Eyre. The feature has become among the most popular on the site. Sinister and inviting, familiar and alien all at the same time, The Merry Spinster updates traditional children's stories and fairy tales with elements of psychological horror, emotional clarity, and a keen sense of feminist mischief.

Worst load of tripe I've ever had to swallow, are these supposed to be RIP offs of Disney storylines?

Or the first horrible drafts of such stories? Worthless, don't waste your time. I'm 35 I ended up ushering it to put myself to sleep when the melatonin wasn't working.

Horror stalked the Four Lands as the Ildatch, ancient source of evil, sent its ghastly Mord Wraiths to destroy Mankind. Only Druid Allanon held the magic power of wishsong that could make plants bloom instantly or turn trees from green to autumn gold. But she, too, was in mortal danger, and Ildatch waited for Brin to fall into his trap.

Please get a woman to do the female voices, Mr. Keating does a lovely reading but the female voices are a bit of a stretch. Otherwise, well done. !!
