    Natalie is a young Gold Coast mother with a loving husband, two small children, and a happy lifestyle. While helping her mother move house, she finds a little box containing a Burmese artifact. When Natalie learns its unique history through a letter left by her great-great uncle, it ignites her interest in its origins and her uncle’s unfulfilled plans for this curio. Her investigations collide with her own dramatically changing circumstances and create a dilemma that challenges the core of her marriage as she finds herself immersed in two very different golden lands.

    Where does The Golden Land rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hard to answer this one as its a bit different from my usual genera.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was easy to follow, not any twists and turns that you had to keep track of as with some stories. This was nice for a change as I listen to a lot of mysteries and thrillers.


    What about David Tredinnick’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant to listen to and got the various characters voices just right.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, not really, though there were parts that had a bit of suspense and made you keep reading.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Story

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes definitely, because it had 'suspense' and I enjoy that.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the parts that came from the dog's point of view. These were not over done, the author didn't try to give the dog human thoughts or feelings, it was just right.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will check out others now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I couldn't and that was frustrating.

    When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof, or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking - to save someone else's life.

    It's 1970s London....When his firm's next robbery goes badly wrong, Glaswegian Colin Grant knows it's time to move on - fast. In Africa, Colin finds a new way of life and new friends. But, as he soon discovers, it's a land of unbelievable and almost irresistible riches. And all he has to do is work out how to fly a planeload of gold out of the country without anyone - especially Major Judas Akaba - finding out.
