As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.

This was star wars from a unique point of view. Thrawn is a very different character from Tarkin or Phasma. With obvious strengths and weaknesses laid out in the beginning Thrawn weaves together the best and worst a space opera has to offer.

One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins - and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.

Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the End of the World. In science fiction, the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm. But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. "The Apocalypse Triptych" will tell their stories.

I have mixed feelings about each story but this book as a whole does not disappoint. just as in the prequel you can read any story in any order and I feel the same applies to each part of each trilogy so far. Stories I didn't care for in part 1 have taken on more meaning for me in this book. I can't decide if I want to reread "the end is nigh" or jump right into "the end has come"

I couldn't get into this one at first. I loved the full cast and the character development was great from the start. It wasn't until I heard this one joke that I liked that I really came to appreciate the experience as a whole. This was an easy read and yet it still managed to surprise me unexpectedly.

When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

I loved it. The narrative was a little confusing but to be honest I wasn't reading this for the mystery. The voice acting kept me invested more than anything else but what I really loved was the attention to detail. This took a hardcore look at some mature themes and while thats not for everyone I would still recommend this audiobook especially to someone who may have listened to The Fault in our Stars.

Albie has never been the smartest kid in his class. He has never been the tallest. Or the best at gym. Or the greatest artist. Or the most musical. In fact, Albie has a long list of the things he's not very good at. And his parents keep reminding him of those things all the time...even when it's just by accident. But then Albie gets a new babysitter, Calista, who helps him figure out all of the things he is good at and how he can take pride in himself.

The book description was perfect and the audio sample had me hooked as soon as I herd the narration. As much as I would like to praise this audio book I've never read this story before. Still I give it an A for Art and 5 gold stars.
