The Device by Patrick Skelton seemed like an intriguing sci-fi story so I couldn’t resist reading it. A mysterious device, a troubled man on a quest to uncover the secrets of his past  and a chilling discovery that might change the world. What’s not to like? It’s an interesting premise and the author largely delivers. Read the rest of this entry

The Vampire Diaries, Book 1: The Awakening

Narrated by: Rebecca Mozo

Length: 6 hrs and 31 mins

Series: Vampire Diaries, Book 1

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 10-27-09

Publisher: HarperAudio

Personally, I’m not very fond of love story books but this one isn’t that bad. The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening is the first The Vampire Diaries audiobook in a series and if I’m not mistaken it doesn’t follow the story from the TV show. I’ve caught glimpses of it but never actually got to watching it, but if you have you’re still going to enjoy the audiobook because it’s practically a brand new storyline with your favorite characters.

A review of The Host Audiobook by Stephenie Meyer

The Host: A Novel

Written by: Stephenie Meyer

Narrated by: Kate Reading

Length: 23 hrs and 5 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 06-09-08

Publisher: Hachette Audio

There’s no doubt – The Host is superior to the Twilight Series, probably given it is designed for adults, rather than teens, and I fall in that first category.

Quite interesting insights into a genre that hasn’t been explored much. Take Robert Heinlein’s “The Puppet Masters” or maybe ABC Televesion’s recently unsuccessful series “Invasion”, jump 3 years after some symbiotic aliens have successfully crushed Earth and many of its human population then tell  a story from the point of view of a good alien introduced right into a hostile host then you have the beginning of The Host.

The Hunger Games

Written by: Suzanne Collins

Narrated by: Carolyn McCormick

Length: 11 hrs and 14 mins

Series: Hunger Games, Book 1

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 10-01-08

Publisher: Scholastic Audio

Amazing, I’m really unsure where to start! The Hunger Games is the first in the trilogy of audiobooks by author Suzanne Collins and managed to leave me holding my breath on more than one occasion. This wasn’t the simplest review to write since probably the entire world population has already read the book.

I’ve kept this audiobook in my to-read list for quite a while and  have even given it out to a couple of friends yet never listened to it personally. I’m leary of the hype associated with audiobooks such as this trilogy. I feel like I’m going to be disappointed whenever everyone informs me how wonderful and intense it is and that I assume I’ll like it.

With that said, I eventually let myself to be persuaded into listening. As I read, I met quite a few interesting characters including Katniss, Prim, Gale and Peeta while they prepare for the reaping. Read the rest of this entry

Inferno Audiobook by Dan Brown audiobook Narrated by Paul Michael

Inferno: A Novel

Written by: Dan Brown

Narrated by: Paul Michael

Length: 17 hrs and 12 mins

Series: Robert Langdon, Book 4

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 05-14-13

Publisher: Random House Audio

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost four years since there was a Dan Brown book. In his latest novel, Inferno, Brown uses the protagonist from The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons – the imperturbable symbologist Dr. Robert Langdon. The author uses the same technique for his latest book, Inferno, switching the Bible for Dante. I think this works out quite well. The thing with all Langdon books is that they happen over a very short time period, so you don’t get so many opportunities to get to know the characters better, what they are about and the backstory is lacking.

A review of the new audiobook The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby

Written by: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Narrated by: Jake Gyllenhaal

Length: 4 hrs and 52 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 04-09-13

Publisher: Audible Studios

If you grew up in the USA you’ve probably read The Great Gatsby in school but somehow I managed not to do that. As an adult I’ve read and heard good things about it which left me with the impression that it seems to reflect on some of the base qualities that form our culture. That intrigued me and finally   made me read the book. I wasn’t disappointed. The audio edition I listened to is the newest one – a tie-in with the movie.

The story develops in the Roaring Twenties which are fascinating in so many ways. All the events in the book revolve around the love that Jay Gatsby feels towards the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. They meet a few years back during the war but can’t be together. Now, Gatsby has become very rich and thinks that he’s worthy of her. He’s trying to become close with her again but she’s married to another man who isn’t exactly the faithful sort. Read the rest of this entry
