The Lord of the Rings Audiobooks

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is an mark in fantasy books. What began, as Tolkien stated, as an imaginary exercise meant only to see where his imagination would reach a point of "that's enough, I've got nothing less to say", becomes one of the most known series in literature.
I remember reading in the back cover of the Felloship of the Ring that there was a Pre-Tolkien and a Pos-Tolkien era. Before I started the journey through the Middle Earth I thought that maybe it would be too long for me, that I probably was not going to read it all, but I have to say that it wasn't hard at all. Yes, there are big chunks of descriptive text but you are glad they exist so you can better envision such a different world full of interesting creatures. I not only read the first but I started the second and ended the third almost without noticing it. Lord of the Rings made me cry witch is almost unprecedented for a book. A few days ago I started listening to the audiobooks and I've got to say that the series works as well in audio as it does in paper.

Uglies Trilogy Audiobooks

The Uglies Series looks at a dystopian society where every teen gets a batch of plastic surgeries on the turn of sixteen and than magically become "Pretty". Off course this is not the whole story, as main character Tally realizes with the help of her new friend Shay. To escape having surgery Shay runs away and Tally becomes confronted with a difficult decision: run away as well or turn her friend Shay to the authorities.
What Scott Westerfeld brings to light with this series are complex moral issues. Being beautiful over being intellectually free? As always there is the other option: being an outcast. With the human being being a social creature that is always much harder than it looks.
