The Rescue



by Kathryn Lasky

Didn’t like the 2nd one that much. So, why did I read the 3rd one? Only because they were bundled together in one audio recording. Seriously, that’s all. This is a very predictable book, which I suppose you’re going to argue is expected because it is a young fiction but I just have to disagree. Just because it written for a younger audience doesn’t mean it can’t have surprises! It got to the point that there was one owl that I was hoping would just get off’d so I wouldn’t have to read about it any more. Yeah, that annoying. >.< I am not reading any more of this series. It pains me to know that there is a bunches more of them.


The Journey


By Kathryn Lasky

I spent a lot of time waiting for something to happen. This book felt more like a tour of the land and culture then a story. Not terrible, but nothing exciting either. There really isn’t much to say about this book… >.< This is the second book in the series.

Prodigal Son (Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein #1) Audio Book


by Dean Koontz and Kevin J. Anderson

This is not a retelling of the original novel. Instead it is a look at what comes after that first story. This is as laden with moral questions as the original novel. What are the responsibilities of the creator? Are we bound by where we come from? It looks at the meanings of life and the importance of things that we often take for granted. It looks at basic human emotions and our ability to choose. How important are Read the rest of this entry



This is a book that I first read when I was young. My introduction to Lloyd Alexander was actually through the movie the Black Cauldron. And the first book I read by him was the Remarkable Journey of Prince Jenn. Llyod Alexander has a beautiful written voice. It is smooth and fluid. Very easy to read Read the rest of this entry

Mouse Guard: Roleplaying Game

I read the book Mouse Guard: Roleplaying Game. I read it because I was running adventures at PCM13. I really like this system. Its a great game for beginners. They take the rules and really break it down to just the basics. The players have no game mechanics to follow. They just have to focus on being in character and rolling dice when asked by the GM. I really enjoyed playing at PCM13 and plan to play it more in the future. If you are interested in a role playing focused system or just learning what RPGs are all about, I would strongly recommend this book!

I would be an audio book. What’s better then being a book?! And well as much as I talk you know I’d be an audio book…
