What did you love best about Hell's Super?

I like the mix of fiction and information about the famous characters. I think the author needs to write an appendix so that the younger people will know who these people are!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'd have to say my favorite character is "Boo" the bat out of Hell. It's a bad bat turned good story!

Which character – as performed by Michael Gilboe – was your favorite?

He does a very credible Beelzebub. Have you checked to see if you didn't hire the genuine article?

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

In Hell you never know who you will meet!

Any additional comments?

The vocal sound effects are as fun as hearing the character's voices! Oh and I got this book for free so I could review it and other small lawyer type stuff. See my description if you like lawyer type stuff. :D

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

I didn't read the print version but shouldn't they be the same thing?

If you’ve listened to books by Emilie J. Howard before, how does this one compare?

Never read one by Emilie J. Howard before but I might give the author another go.

What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's a good reader but I have voices in my head that I can assign to characters so it's like making a meal, great to have it cooked for me but I can manage fine in the kitchen.

Who was the most memorable character of Cold Hollow and why?

I liked "Artie" because as a vision impaired person I could relate to him.

Any additional comments?

I have some but I'd have to put **SPOILER ALERT ** in front of the comments.

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

Well yes I would if I had friends who read or use audio books. Sadly I have no such friends (unless you count the maybe friends on the websites I interact with)

What other book might you compare SIMPOC to and why?

This is a unique twist on the whole apocalyptic epoch. If all humanity dies (or most of it) will the computers take over, will they do what is necessary to survive and will they all be on the same side or will there be good and evil or at least different perceptions of right and wrong?

What about Zachary Johnson’s performance did you like?

I liked that they used a bit of sound effect to make it seem like the computers are all saying things at once. I am a bedtime listener to books rather than having them play in the background during my daily activities (although some tempt me more than others) and so I enjoy the pace and cadence of Mr. Johnson's performance. (Not to say he puts me to sleep by any means!)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

When the humans go the way of the dinosaurs the computers reign begins but will the human frailties of the past become SIMPOC's downfall?

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to hear the next installment!

Where does Rebel Radio: A Post-Apocalyptic Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This type of book has become my favorite topic to read about. I enjoy learning some tricks and tips along with a great story arc. I think with all we are faced with today that people need to start preparing for the worse while hoping for the best.

What did you like best about this story?

For me I like stories with just two protagonists. These multi-person five different viewpoint stories with everyone retelling the events in their own perception are tedious. When switching between the male and female roles the reader is moved forward in the story and not just rehashing the events.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

Keven Pierce is an excellent narrator. I've heard him a few times and his voice although he doesn't carry a lot of range (for instance in this one he has to voice both male and female but he doesn't try to modulate his voice for the girl). There is something subliminal though that makes you know which character he's voicing. If I had my 'druthers I'd like to have books like this read by two people. Like a radio play. Failing that though this guy does a bang up job!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This wasn't an emotional book for me. Although as I do drink I could definitely feel for the man struggling with his alcoholism. Putting myself in his place sure I'd have a bottle or two stashed here and there but I wouldn't be hauling around a liquor store! You can bet the stuff I would have would be top shelf (since I'd be stealing it!).

Any additional comments?

I sure can't wait for book 2! Oh yes and this book was provided free to me by Audiobook Blast in exchange for my review. It is true for quite a few of the books I rate and the full statement is in my profile if you care to look. Okay then!

If you could sum up Android Paradox in three words, what would they be?

Technical, History, Intellectual

Have you listened to any of Erik Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I really like how he modifies his voice so he can be a man, woman or Android.

Any additional comments?

I think this is a good book to read when you are awake not trying to sleep as it does make a lot of twists and turns a sleepy mind misses.
