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.
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.
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.
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!
