Only a few weeks have passed since the Battle of Burrova, and Edward and his friends are busier than ever improving the Haunt and protecting the surviving villagers. Sadly, time is a scarce commodity in the world of Ivalis. Soon enough, Ed finds himself thrown in conflict against the man behind the mindbrood’s attack, a man who is seemingly capable of shrugging off mortal wounds and who is willing to unleash a devastating plague of undead against the Haunt and everyone inside.

A great book. The story of the dungeon lord is as good in book two as in book one, if not better. My Only complaint is some of the annoying audio layers over some characters. Specifically the spiders. There seams to be just recordings of other people talking in the background. Something i find distracting.

It can Definitely be recommended to any fan of the genre.

When Edward is swept into the world of Ivalis as a Dungeon Lord, the Dark's most powerful servant, he has no servitude in mind. He'll oppose the evil plans of the Dark god, Murmur, whatever it takes.

But in the battle between Dark and Light, what can Edward choose if both sides are cruel, uncaring monsters?

The story is interesting, action packed and fun. If you enjoy RPG games, this book is a great bridge from game to book.
The narrator is good, but the over the top sound effects and layered audio is distracting and annoying. But not so often that it makes it intolerable. But bumps it from a 5 star rating to a 4 star rating from me.

A hilarious and emotional personal account of the life, times, mistakes, and crippling codependence of comedian, producer, director, actress, and writer Whitney Cummings. Full of intellect, pathos, and profundity, I'm Fine...and Other Lies is, in Whitney's words, her first book, which means her last date. With her signature incendiary edge and self-deprecation, Whitney comes clean about what has shaped her into the trailblazing comic that she is today.

There are good stories with experiences worth listening too. Though, as a man you'll have to take a flick to the testicles every 5 minutes. There are a Lot of "as a woman" sentences and complaints about men in general. This is definitely a book more aimed at the female readers, but is well worth listening to for a man too.

Few authors can claim to have marked a genre so thoroughly and personally that their words have leaked into every aspect of modern pop culture. Clive Barker is such an author, and the Books of Blood marked his debut - his coming out to the world - in brilliant, unforgettable fashion.

All in all there are some good tips worth adding to your daily routines. But this mostly seams to be the thoughts and routines of an OCD mind. You'd spend 3-4 hours a day on making the day "right". Missing out on more then you gain.
The narration sound incredibly boring and uninterested. Sounds like trying to sound a certain way.

From the invasion of Britain to the siege of Paris, the Viking age was indeed one of the most tumultuous and formative periods of European history. This book delves into the many cultural aspects of the society: religion, social structure, architecture, and much more. Their celebrated ship building is discussed at length, myths are debunked, and legends are deliberated.

Why we think it’s a great listen: Among the great literary achievements of the 20th century, Lolita soars in audio thanks to the incomparable Jeremy Irons, bringing to life Nabokov’s ability to shock and enthrall more than 50 years after publication. Lolita became a cause celebre because of the erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Nabokov's masterpiece owes its stature not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story that is shocking in its beauty and tenderness.

First of all, the narration by Jeremy Irons is the best narration i have ever heard. He makes the story sound as the main character is actually the one reading it. Very impressive.
The story is remarkable. Writen detailed and still to the point. And the story itself is fantastic.
I Strongly recommend this book to anyone. And i insist on the version read by Jeremy Irons.
