    Here is a tautly paced investigation of one the 20th century's most audacious art frauds, which generated hundreds of forgeries - many of them still hanging in prominent museums and private collections today. Provenance is the extraordinary narrative of one of the most far-reaching and elaborate deceptions in art history.

    Andy says: "reads like a thriller"
    "Great engaging story"
    Overall

    I really like John Myatt's work, and I have always been fascinated by his story, which brought me to this book. I really liked the way the story of Drewe and Myatt was told, and the narrator I think did a good job.

    On the beautiful Outer World planet of Solaria, a handful of human colonists lead a hermitlike existence, their every need attended to by their faithful robot servants. To this strange and provocative planet comes Detective Elijah Baley, sent from the streets of New York with his positronic partner, the robot R. Daneel Olivaw, to solve an incredible murder that has rocked Solaria to its foundations.

    Mark says: "Science Fiction at it's best"
    "Great sequel"
    Overall

    I was really glad to find out that all the Robots trilogy if Isaac Asimov have been narrated by William Dufris. I found the story very entertaining and as with "The Caves of Steel" I think the narration was really good, it was nice to hear the same voice for Elijah.

    If you are just going to start reading this trilogy, I highly recommend you start with Caves of Steel since the characters are first introduced in that book, and will give you more insight into their ways that will allow you to understand their reactions.

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Dionne says: "perfectly executed!"
    "Entertaining and engaging story"
    Overall

    I hesitated a little in getting this book in audible since I was worried that the narration wouldn't do justice to the story, but I think the narration was really nice, the narrator uses different voices for each character so it was easy to follow the dialogues.

    I really liked the story it was nice to find an Asimov thriller though it can sometimes feel a little dated, mainly with the population figures he uses, but if you overlook that I really recommend you get this audible to pass a good time.

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "A really funny audible"
    Overall

    I came to this book through a recommendation from a friend, and it was as good as I was told. I greatly enjoyed the stories, I thought the dad character was hilarious. I think the narrator did a great job. I highly recommend this book, and it's without a doubt in the top of my list of funny books.

    There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

    Catherine says: "Powerful and Disturbing"
    "Great listen, good narration by Christopher Lee"
    Overall

    I have really enjoyed this book. I think Christopher Lee does an amazing narrating of the book, I highly recommend it!
