Fantastically heartwarming, funny and sad

Trevor Noah shares with the listener what it was like to grow up in South Africa as a child who did not belong where ever they went. The book was fascinating as it tells the story from Noah's perspective but you soon find that it is more a book about the role of his strong mother in his life within the back drop of South Africa. It is heartwarming, and funny and sad all at once you will not be disappointed.

Linsten to the stars

Spin is a great character, she has grown up in the shadow of a man that was larger than life when alive but even more so in death. Her father is a great pilot in a society that worships them as the shields in the sky keeping them alive from their ancestral enemies the Krell. In Skyward you follow Spin as she fights against her father's past to make it through flight school and become a pilot. All of this amidst the back drop of constant threat of annihilation from the Krell and their Life Buster Bombs.

Sanderson is at his best when he is telling stories and Skyward is as rich as any of the other works that I have listen too. There is humor, depth of character and drama. A great book for the young and old alike. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

Fresh from his victory at the Marisan institute Darrow is now a Lancer of house Augustus. He and his friends live to bring pride to the house of the arch governor. Yet secretly Darrow must continue to find away to help the Son’s of Aries undermine the Society and its Golden cast of oppressors.

Bloody damn good

#Audible1. The story of how Darrow a Lowly Red is plucked from his mine on Mars where as a Hell diver he is the bravest of his clan, to try and undermine the Society that has oppressed his people for years.

Brilliant tale made better by the Tim Gerard Reynolds Gorry Damn good performance.

I cannot recommend this more highly than this.

More Blackthorn

Like the other Stormlight books Oathbringer has a backstory; The Black Thorns Backstory which is rich and bloody and full of grit. While this is Dalinar's story there is plenty of your usual faves. you find out more about the Cosmere and a couple of your characters from Warebreaker show up to cause trouble in the form of Nightblood and a couple others that you will have to piece together for yourself.

The only thing I did not like about the book is that it ended. and I now have to wait for more Stormlight Archive stories.

Life before Death Journey Before Destination....

Once again Sanderson weaves a rich tale of the struggle of the Allethy as they fight against the Parchendi. Kalidin and Bridge Four find out what it is like to have their lives back and as they do the demons they all but abandoned as slaves return to shape their new reality. Dalinar struggles against foes foreign and domestic. While Shalon and Jansna streak toward the Shattered Planes to let Dalinar know what they have discovered about the Parchendi and their link to the Void Bringingers.

By far my favorite of the Stormlight archive to date.

The narration of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are again fantastic as they were in the Way of Kings and OathBringer.

Ready Player One!!!!!

Don't bother with the movie, listening to Wil Wheaton perform Ernest Cline's break through novel is 100 times better than going to see Steven Spielberg's movie that only has the title and some characters in common with this Epic romp down geek memory lane.

Listening to this tale of a poor kid living his life online during one of the worst depressions in human history, is a great premise for a novel but layer in all of this nostalgic 80's pop culture references will either take you back to the good ole days or leave you asking what the heck is joust....

After listening to this the first time I went back and watched many of the films and downloaded emulators for the classic arcade games mentioned.

The story is about a Boy Wade Watts who lives in what passes as a trailer park in 2048 OKC. He and most of society spend their lives in a computer simulation called the OASIS. The OASIS is the brainchild of James Halliday, an eccentric developer that creates a grand game within a game for control of his fortune and the worlds most profitable company. Go for a wild ride that includes romance epic battles and the struggle for humanities soul against the evil corporation and its goons.

Scarlet the way you never thought she would be

Unique take on the tale of Robin Hood as told from the perspective of Will Scarlet. Great narration and a fun listen as we find out more about Wil and how she came to be one of Robin's merry band with the back drop of Nottingham and robbing from the rich to feed the pour.
