  • Joy in the Morning

    Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably have given way at the knees. For among those present were Florence Craye, to who Bertie had once been engaged...and her new fiance 'Stilton' Cheesewright, who regarded Bertie as a snake in the grass...also Zenobia Hopwood and her guardian Lord Worplesdon, whose violent antipathy to 'Boko' Fittleworth amounted to obsession...and that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout.

    Overall

    Reading PG Wodehouse is like eating candy--perhaps bonbons. And the narrator, Jonathan Cecil, does a brilliant job bringing Wodehouse's already so animated characters to full life. The only unfortunate part of the experience was the quality of the recording--often the sound is muddled--not so much that you can't hear, but if sound quality is important to you, you will be frustrated at times. Still, with that caveat, I can assure you that listening to this, Wodehouse and Cecil will bring you much joy--in the morning or any time of day you choose to listen.

    Story
    (2134)

    Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure.

    Prsilla says: "Really-REALLY Classic!"
    "Revenge has never been so sweet."
    Overall

    Dumas and Lee make a fabulous pair. While this is an incredibly long book, the payoffs are worth it. Listening to this I felt that Dumas must have had as much fun writing this as I was having reading it. A complete joy.

    Story
    (2226)

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Mary Lynn says: "Brilliant story, pitch perfect narration"
    "simply perfection!"
    Overall

    An exquisite read, a beautiful story. One of the best books I've read in years. I was completely taken by this book. Both Verghese and the reader, Malhotra, do a wonderful job bringing this rich tale--and its complex, kind, funny, honest, troubled characters--to life in vivid detail.
