  • "A lovely gem for our times"

    Overall

    I am a patient reader/listener, but have to admit I struggled to get into this book. Thank God I stuck with it!

    This is a lovely little love story, complete with overtones of race, class, and being good enough. It is about people trying to survive in cultures not native to them. It is about finding love late in life in surprising places. And mostly, it is about Helen Simonsen's deeply crafted characters, artfully captured by a gifted narrator.

    I must say that it was the narroator's spot on interpretation of the peevish, upper crust, social striving Major Pettigrew that put me off at first. But this is the mark of a fully developed character--one I am compelled to know more about, even though I don't like him much.

    By the way, I loved him completely by the end, even more so because his flaws were so genuine.

    If you liked "Natherland," "Let the Great World Spin," or "The Elegance of the Hedgehog," I believe you will find this a very excellent listen. If your TV viewing leans toward BBC and "The Tudors," you will love this book.

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

  • "Sad to see--or hear--it end"

    Overall

    Well into years of marraige, I think I'm rarely bored by the routine and the sameness of it all. I find deep joy in the fact that I know my spounse's "moves" and he knows mine, that our days consist of a lot of child-centric activity, that the lawn gets mowed on Sunday, that we often fall into bed too exhausted to do much more than murmur a good-night.

    It is these very things--the sameness, the absence of say, the kind of sponstaneous and thrilling sex you had in your early 20s, that many of my friends complain about.

    And when I hear their frustration, I think, "Yes, but if you lost it all, every boring bit of it, I bet you would do anything to get it back."

    Mary Beth Latham, the loving wife and mother in Anna Quindlen's brilliant new novel, gets the chance to experience that when an act of violence destroys everything she knows.

    Qundlen draws us, with perfect language, into Mary Beth's internal diologue as she struggles to deal with the choices she made that resulted in devastating loss.

    It is so beautifully narrated by Hope Davis, so exquisitely peopled with thoroughly developed characters...God, I just hated this book to end.

    I loved every last word of "Every Last One."

  • "Fantastic modern day fairy tale"

    Overall

    A stately English country home, its exterior a beautiful mask for dark secrets within.

    A mysterious cottage perched on a cliff high above the English sea.

    A secret garden, its blooms walled off from the world.

    Two cousins, both beautiful, both devoted to one another.

    And a four-year-old girl who appears mysteriously on the docks at an Australian port, with nothing to explain her existence but a book of fairy tales.

    Indeed, fairy tales take center stage in ?The Forgotten Garden,? Kate Morton?s rapturous follow-up to ?The House at Riverton.? In fact, getting this book through Audible.com is almost a bit of fairy magic in itself, given that the hard copy is not scheduled for publication until April, 2009.

    The manner in which the book leaps between 2005 Brisbane, Dickensian London, andCornwall in 1975 as well as 2005 can be a bit disconcerting at first. But as if sprinkled by magic dust, you are quickly pulled into the tale. At the center are two beautiful cousins, Rose and Eliza. One is privileged but sickly, the other poor, but spirited. Together they combine their strengths and become an indomitable pair, forever linked by their devotion to one another.

    Until the ultimate promise is honored?and a secret is born that might very well destroy them--and all who follow.

    ?The Forgotten Garden? features characters you would find in most fairy tales?a good and noble heroine (actually several, since this story spans multiple generations), a misguided king who is overpowered by his evil queen, a good prince, a loyal handmaiden, a noble woodsman (or, in this case, gardener), and, of course, an enchanted garden.

    But each character is fully realized and made modern. ?The Forgotten Garden? is a rich and rewarding read that will not be forgotten any time soon.

Daryl's greatest hits:
  • The Weight of Silence

    "Engrossing debut novel"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about The Weight of Silence?

    The story gripped you from the prologue and wouldn't let go. The characters, with the exception of Griff, were relatable and well-drawn. The narration was incredible; I wish all full-cast narrations were this well-done!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to decide. They all had qualities that I admired and related to, but the children are probably my favorites due to their innocence and desire to protect those they love.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is well worth the listening time. It does shift point of view from 1st to 3rd person, which is a little bit clunky and cumbersome, and Griff is too unlikeable to be taken seriously as a well-drawn character, but overall, this is a well-written suspenseful debut novel.

  • And the Shofar Blew

    "Great book - so-so narration"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book is a must-read for any Christian thinking of going into, or marrying into, the ministry. The message that one must stand solely on God and his word is so important that it is often missed in our world and, sadly, even our Christian literature.
    The book is long in spots, but each scene builds and builds and shows what can happen - editing anything out would have taken away from seeing the lives of the characters unfold.

    The narrator, like other reviewers have said, does speak very slowly - particularly for the older characters - but once you look past that, she did a passible job. I rarely had difficulty differentiating between the characters - no small feat when there are 6-8 of them over the course of the novel!

    This is an important work, well worth the credit.

  • Little Mercies

    "A good emotional quick read from Gudenkauf"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Any additional comments?

    I first became a Gudenkauf fan with her debut, The Weight of Silence. These Things Hidden was a pretty good read; One Breath Away was a misstep for this talented author.

    This book deals with the tragedy of Ellen Moore, a child advocate who - after a morning of chaos - left her baby in the back of her car on a hot summer morning. her path intersects with Jenny, a street-smart yet naive ten-year-old who travels to Iowa in search of relatives.

    Perhaps Kate Rudd's narration is a bit overdramatic, but it didn't call for the scathing review posted on this site. Tanya Eby's narration of Jenny's portion was admirable.

    I found the ending was a little too Hallmark, but this book is a riveting read. Good work, heather Gudenkauf!

  • The Horse Dancer

    "Narrator's accents distract from the story"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think I would recommend the print version, but not the narration. Many reviewers have loved the narrator, but she doesn't do it for me. There are too many accents and she does not do many of them well - for example, the requisite American cowboy speaks VERY slowly (Americans do not speak that slowly or flatly), and her French pronunciation was atrocious!
    Still, the premise of the book is a good one, and I will read this in print.

  • "What a Writer! A true storyteller"

    24 of 25 helpful votes

    A true storyteller draws you into the story and you are able to visualize, be in that story. Kate Morton is profound in that capability. I have loved everyone of her books. That is odd for me because I do not care for English accent in my ear. Caroline Lee is the one exception. She is a fantastic narrator. I just so appreciate a story that once you begin you just cannot put it down until you know what happens. An author that keeps you right there in that story with those characters, it's a gift. This story will wrap right around you. It is believeable, and yet woven with fantasy of a lovely imagination. I loved it!
