    Police chief Cameron McDonald has lived in idyllic Wheelock, Massachusetts for most of his life, as has his beloved wife Allie. Their comfortable lives are thrown into tumult, however, when Cam's distant cousin Jamie arrives in town along with his wife's dead body. Jamie admits to the murder - a mercy killing to end the pain caused by a ravaging cancer. And now Cam is torn by his oath to uphold justice and his family obligations as chief of the Scottish McDonald clan.

    Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine, number-one New York Times best-selling author George R. R. Martin is a giant in the field of fantasy literature and one of the most exciting storytellers of our time. Now he delivers a rare treat for listeners: a compendium of his shorter works, collected into two stunning volumes, that offers fascinating insight into his journey from young writer to award-winning master.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I was OK with purchasing I and II, but when the stories were the same as in the original dream-songs version I was very disappointed! I bought 2 and 3 and the stories were the same as in the original? What's with that? Why didn't you indicate that it was the same as the original?


    Any additional comments?

    Don't sell an volume 1 and 2 with the same exact stories on the original volume!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Riptide to be better than the print version?

    I listen to audio books while I work, and no time to read a printed copy, so yes the audio is better for me.

    No.

    A former Wall Street Journal editor and the current president and CEO of the Atlantic Council, Frederick Kempe draws on recently released documents and personal interviews to re-create the powder keg that was 1961 Berlin. In Cold War Berlin, the United States and the Soviet Union stand nose to nose, with the possibility of nuclear war just one misstep away.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not sure. When I started listening to it, I thought it would be something that I could follow. It was a miss mash, and I didn't know what was going on, I thought WTF! Then thought I must listen to the rest to see what is going on, just when I thought I knew, I found that I didn't! I don't know who could follow the plot? I sure couldn't.


    What could David Mitchell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Connect the stories so that it made sense


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked a couple of the chapters, that's when I thought I knew what was going on, and then found out that I didn't
