    Story

    The performance and the writing are both first class. It's not often I give five stars but this one sucked me in quickly, just like when I read the name of the wind. The narrator Simon Prebble who did the fantastic job of reading mr norrell and jonathan strange, also delivers a top performance in this book.
    The Oversight has often been linked with Susana Clark's novel,
    Although I can see why people say they are alike, I personally don't think they are that close.
    If you liked mr norrell then you will probably love this book, but if you found mr norrell to be somewhat drawn out and slow at times, then fear not as this is not the case with The Oversight.
    This is the first of a trilogy and often the first book is just setting things up. I think this is more than a set up book and can't wait for the next one
    Five stars and wholly recommended

    Only five still guard the borders between the worlds. Only five hold back what waits on the other side. Once the Oversight, the secret society that polices the lines between the mundane and the magic, counted hundreds of brave souls among its members. Now their number can be tallied on a single hand. When a drunkard brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, it seems their hopes for a new recruit will be fulfilled - but the girl is a trap, her appearance a puzzle the five remaining guardians must solve or lose each other, and their society, for good.

    Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache... and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect.

    Story

    There are lots of things to like about this book, the premise of bringing people back so they can tell you who murdered them or just so you can say goodbye to the love ones you lose is maybe not a new idea, as anyone who has ever seen the first episode of torchwood will tell you. That said I have read that Seth has stated he came up with the idea first, I say, I really don't care who thought of it first I'm just glad he wrote this take on the idea.
    There are a few holes in the plot but its rare nowadays to find a plot without any.
    So all in all I'd defanatly say give it a try.
    Seth has taken me back to when I loved watching the twilight zone, and made me hungry for some more strange tales.
    Now for the bad bit
    If you have never heard a Irishman before then you may be able to forgive.
    But ari fliakos does to the Irish what dick van dyke did to the cockney accent.
    For the most part I thought he was doing a Scottish person pretending to be Irish ( just picture Sean Connery in untouchables)
    I was hoping he would be a minor character, but no such luck.
    For those of you that read as much you listen to audio books, then maybe this is one to read.
    I did get past it by just pretending he lied about where he was from, ( unlike Roy detrice doing daenerys in the a dance with dragons.... Don't get me started on that)
    Sorry I digress,
    If your looking for something a bit different and are fine with Americans who can't do accents well then download it now
    You won't be disappointed.

    Death won't silence them. Revivers. Able to wake the recently dead, and let them bear witness to their own demise. Twelve years after the first reviver came to light, they have become accepted by an uneasy public. The testimony of the dead is permitted in courtrooms across the world. Forensic revival is a routine part of police investigation.In the United States, that responsibility falls to the Forensic Revival Service. Despite his troubled past, Jonah Miller is one of their best.

    There are some odd things about Nate's new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn't perfect, it's livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don't nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela's apartment. And Tim's. And Veek's.

    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters - some heroic, some diabolical - and a supernatural element as baffling and chilling as any he's ever conjured.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive-and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills-and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit-he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

There is passion here, and misery and charm, grandeur and squalor, tragedy, nobility and courage. Unabridged and split into two parts. The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs.

But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.

Told by the narrator in a "sitting around the fireplace enjoying a warm cup of cocoa" sort of way, the listener embarks on a journey through a wondrous land inhabited by wondrous creatures. Yet, the listener soon discovers that the wonder of these creatures is blanketed in a thick comforter of despair brought on by the cruelty of the joke.
