Wow what a life, an amazing telling of the life of the original true believer. Peter Riegert fantastically fills in for Stan Lee narrating, at first I wasn't sure about anyone but Stan reading his own life story but after a few minutes I started to forget that it wasn't him reading. I am so glad I picked this book up, I learned so much about the origins of Marvel, other creators that Stan worked with and of course the incredible man himself. Highly recommend.

Marc Thompson was perfect. I wish I could give the performance more than five stars.

It wasn't the sex talk he expected. Phillip Sallinger's dad has told him he's a custodian - a guardian - and his genetically inherited power is telekinesis. He'll learn to move objects with his mind. Excited to begin superhero high school until he discovers he's assigned to a special-ed class for disabled empowered kids, he suddenly feels like an outsider.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

A fantastic book narrated brilliantly by Stephen Fry. As someone who had seen the movie but was never able to read past the first chapter or two of the book, finding it dull compared to the action of the movie. This audiobook was absolutely perfect, helped very much by Stephen Frys narration (I especially liked his Hagrid voice). I couldn't stop listening and can now say without a doubt that the book is better than the movie.

Ready Player One is absolutely brilliant and Wil Wheatons voice suits it perfectly. If you like video games or 80s pop culture do not hesitate to read this book.
