    Story

    This series is just plain adorable. Katherine Kellgren's narration is worth a credit on its own. She's marvelous as Jacky. Like a big bowl of ice cream, it's a great treat. But, it's not a meal. I've listened to the first three and I'm done.

    As a break in the routine, I've thoroughly enjoyed listening - more because of Kellgren than the rather simplistic plot. But all the talk of mizzen masts and bowsprits makes me long for another listen to the whole Master and Commander series by Patrick O'Brian. With Patrick Tull giving voice to Stephen and Jack, it's a complete meal for sure.

    In the third book of the "Bloody Jack" series, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber, a pirate at heart, returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humour, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston--under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and she is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

    There's a Pipi Longstocking element to this book that's adorable. No, it won't make you smarter or add to your understanding of the world. It's just swashbuckling good fun. But the best part of the book is the narration. Really, it should be Example 1 in the "How to narrate a book" tutorial. Katherine Kellgren makes this book what it is. She is Jacky. This is a simply a delightful, entertaining listen.

    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    Story

    I was surprised by how much I liked this book. The description caught my attention and I felt like I should give it a go. This was my first foray into steampunk and I'm not usually big on Victorian era books, but I was just so enchanted by the idea of Madame Geraldine's that I had to get over my trepidation and prejudices and just listen. Glad I did. The characters are great, I look forward to see how they progress and grow. I was a little weirded out because the story built and built and then summed up in the last 10 minutes- for a minute I thought that I missed a download or something because it really did only take the last 10 minutes to end which seemed a little rushed but it was still pretty satisfying. It's a toss up for me now- do I want to go to Hogwarts or Madame Geraldine's?

  • "Loved this book"

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    One of the best books I have ever read. I started it years ago and couldn't get into it. Now, after learning a lot more about the French Revolution, I got it. Dickens is hard to beat as an author - so beautifully written! But the moral of the story is just so powerful. I recommend this to everyone who has any idea about the Fr. Rev., and if you don't, find out so you can enjoy this book. It is a classic for a reason.

    I love Frank Muller, one of the best narrators out there. But I also have this book read by Martin Jarvis who is also very good, and actually has a little lighter quality to his voice, which is sometimes helpful in this rather dark novel..

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." So begins this classic, one of the most beloved novels of all time. Charles Dickens brings the French Revolution to life through such vivid characters as Charles Darnay, the Old Doctor, Sydney Carton and Lucy Manette. The action peaks with the storming of the Bastille, the dreaded symbol of government authority. And the blade of La Guillotine falls again...

Well, not quite grown up. In fact, Anne was not very different from her restless young pupils, their rows of bright, inquisitive eyes staring at her that first day of class. Anne was as mischievous and high-spirited as ever.

    Anikwa and James, 12 years old in 1812, spend their days fishing, trapping, and exploring together in the forests of the Indiana Territory. To Anikwa and his family, members of the Miami tribe, this land has been home for centuries. As traders, James' family has ties to the Miami community as well as to the American soldiers in the fort. Now tensions are rising - the British and American armies prepare to meet at Fort Wayne for a crucial battle, and Native Americans from surrounding tribes gather in Kekionga to protect their homeland.

    One day, 13-year-old Jessie Bollier is earning pennies playing his fife on the docks of New Orleans; the next, he is kidnapped and thrown aboard a slave ship, where his job is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. As the endless voyage continues, Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and inhumanity of the slave trade, but nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror he will witness before his nightmare ends - a horror that will change his life forever.
