    Like handshakes or housepets, many things are preferable when not slippery. Unfortunately, in this miserable volume, I am afraid that Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire run into more than their fair share of slipperiness during their harrowing journey up, and down, a range of strange and distressing mountains.

    fantastic book as usual, but once again the final "letter to the editor" was disappointingly omitted from the audio version.

    The word "carnivorous", which appears in the title of this book, means "meat-eating", and once you have read such a bloodthirsty word, there is no reason to read any further. This carnivorous volume contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal.

    I loved the story, but once again the letter to the editor was missing much to my dismay :(

    This audio is the only one which describes every last detail of the Baudelaire children's miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital, which makes it one of the most dreadful audios in the world.

    Nobody in their right minds would listen to this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay at the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded on this program.

    Set in the 1920s and 1930s, Honolulu explores the stark contrast between the image of the glamorous Hawaiian paradise portrayed to the mainland and the harsh reality of life on the island. With characters as vivid and richly descriptive as the history of Hawaii itself, this novel is sure to enthrall listeners.

    I purchased this book in preparation for a trip to Hawaii with my husband. It was perfect to get me in the mood for our trip as well as a great beach read. It was very interesting to get a taste of the history of the island of Oahu before visiting and definitely helped me to see the island and its people in a different light. I think the book was well researched and really gave me a view into a completely different world than my own. I would highly recommend it.

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers - boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out - and no one's ever made it through alive. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.

    Story

    My husband and I listened to this book together but found some of the premise to be too much of a stretch for us to really enjoy it. It ended up feeling a little forced. Some of it was interesting and I'll probably end up finishing the series just because I hate to leave a series unfinished, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    The night winds were beginning their wild dances beyond the bar, and the fishing hamlet across the harbor was gemmed with lights as Anne and her husband, Gilbert, finally a doctor, drove up the poplar lane. The door of the little house opened, and a warm glow of firelight flickered out into the dusk. Gilbert lifted Anne from the buggy and led her into the garden, through the little gate, up the trim, red path to the sandstone step. "Welcome home," he whispered, and hand in hand they stepped over the threshold of their house of dreams...and the story begins.

    Story

    I'm usually pretty patient but I only made it 40 seconds into this book before returning it for a refund. The sound quality was AWFUL. The narrator didn't seem terrible, but it sounded like it had been recorded in a tin can. I decided it was worth a little more money to get the version that Barbara Caruso narrates.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    What did you love best about Good Omens?

    I was worried (as a religious person myself) that the book would make too much a mockery of things I consider sacred, however I didn't find that to be the case. While it's a little lighthearted and a tad irreverent it was really just a fun little journey to take with the authors. A little zany and strange, but it does make you think while you're sitting there giggling in incredulity. A delightful listen all around!


    What other book might you compare Good Omens to and why?

    I think if you enjoyed both C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters and Douglas Adams' A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy then you will love this book. I know those are two completely different books, but I think if you disliked either one you will be unlikely to appreciate Good Omens.


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Martin does a fantastic job of bringing the different characters to life and giving them their personalities. His timing, accents and everything are spot on. I'm going to be going out and looking for other titles that he has narrated in the future.

    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

    Story

    This book was excellent. Ms. Bronte did an excellent job of telling several seemingly totally separate stories and then bringing them together at the end. As I went through I had to remind myself that each new place she told us about was still connected to the last place, but not in a bad way. I had been putting off reading it for a long time because I was daunted by the idea of getting into classical literature, but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it!

    The narrator was also excellent. She did a great job differentiating between different accents and voices in a way that was distinctive but not distracting. I'll definitely be looking for more of her work in the future!

    SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else.

    I loved this book every bit as much as its predecessor. I listened to the whole thing in a day because I couldn't put it down. It has so many great ideas and different ways to think about things. Their approach is such a fascinating way to look at the world and it's neat to see how many different things it can be applied to. If you read these books you will never see the world the same way again.
