    When Elspeth Noblin dies of cancer, she leaves her London apartment to her twin nieces, Julia and Valentina. These two American girls never met their English aunt; they only knew that their mother, too, was a twin, and Elspeth her sister. Julia and Valentina are semi-normal American teenagers - with seemingly little interest in college, finding jobs, or anything outside their cozy home in the suburbs of Chicago, and with an abnormally intense attachment to one another.

    "Seductive and Entertaining"
    Overall

    Beautifully atmospheric and written with a keen ear for dialogue, I think Audrey Niffenegger's second novel is the best ghost story since Shirley Jackson's THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE. The story is sublime and full of surprises. The narration is superlative. I'm already looking forward to this author's next novel.

    Story

    Leonard, The Glister's 15-year-old narrator, lives in the decaying coastal community of Innertown. Every year or so, a boy from Leonard's school disappears, vanishing into the wasteland of the old chemical plant. Nobody knows where these boys go or whether they are alive or dead, and without evidence to the contrary, the authorities claim they are simply runaways.

    Tracy L. Walters says: "I can honestly say that this is the first book...."
    "Literary Thriller"
    Overall

    If your tastes run to more literary thrillers, you will love the attention to character, setting, atmosphere and plot John Burnside presents in this spooky mystery. This is no hack-em-up horror potboiler, but rather a thoughtful and quietly devastating tale of murdered children, damaged adults and the effects of greed. Beautifully written and narrated, I enjoyed every moment of this highly absorbing and entertaining audiobook.

    In 1956, Caedmon had the great fortune to record Eudora Welty reading some of her finest stories. In her sweetly vibrant Mississippi drawl, Ms. Welty deftly draws the listener in to the uproariously multilayered "Why I Live at the P.O.", the spontaneous "Powerhouse", and the insightful voice of women's truths in "Petrified Man". Ms. Welty's reading brings immediacy and resonance to these wonderful tales.

    Overall

    I have been a fan of Eudora Welty's for as long as I can remember, and I was quite excited about the prospect of hearing her reading her own exquisite short stories. It was wonderful to hear her voice, but the dear lady spoke so fast that it's very difficult to understand. Still,if you're a Welty fan, it's well worth a download. Enjoy.

    American Comedy Award-winner Brian Regan lights up the stage in this live performance. He has been on Letterman five times, the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and had his own comedy special on Showtime called Something's Wrong with the Regan Boy. In his Playboy interview, Dennis Miller named Regan one of his favorite comedians. As he performs around the country, people are constantly requesting favorite routines. This recording answers that call.

    Mark says: "Tell us some jokes... circus boy!"
    "Hilarious!"
    Overall

    This is one of the funniest routines I've ever heard, and I've listened to it half a dozen times. Every time I listen, I have to run and fetch a box of tissues because I laugh until tears run down my face. Brian Regan proves you don't have to work blue to make an audience scream with laughter. Absolutely hysterical! What a funny, funny man!
