    When the steamer Drake is shipwrecked off the Spanish coast, only two passengers survive. One is Alec Ramsay, a young American boy. The other is the Black Stallion, the wildest of all wild creatures. Stranded together on a desert island, boy and stallion develop a deep and wonderful understanding. The Black Stallion is the horse Alec has always dreamed of - beautiful, free-spirited, and astonishingly strong. Alec is determined to tame him and bring him home to New York.

    If you could sum up The Black Stallion in three words, what would they be?

    Still a classic


    Any additional comments?

    There are still thrills in this great old book. It has been a movie for a reason. The theme is classic and it is a tightly written book that defies time.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King has won sweeping critical acclaim and an impressive collection of awards for her writing. Although other writers have tried, no one has matched King's ability to capture the allure of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes.

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

    While the audio version was absolutely excellent and was as good as the print version, the print version was excellent in its own right and could in no way be call inferior to the audio version.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Mary Russell, wife of Sherlock Holmes, is having issues with her memory which is bringing problems to them both. With lives in jeopardy Sherlock Holmes enlists the help of Dashiell Hammett, the author of Sam Spade mysteries and much more.


    Any additional comments?

    Jenny Sterlin does her usual superb job of reading in this book. She is the best voice for the characters.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would be willing to recommend this book to anyone who reads fiction. I had no interest in the vampire genre at all until I read a book by Jeanne C. Stein. She is the one who got me interested in the genre and her books are still the best.


    Have you listened to any of Dina Pearlman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dina Pearlman has read all the books in this series and it is clear that she is getting a better grip on the characters in each new book. This is her best yet.

    This series may not have many installments to go and that is a real shame.

  • Delusion In Death: In Death, Book 35

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    What did you love best about Delusion In Death?

    Nora Roberts a.k.a. J D Robb is a master (mistress?) of creating great characters that one likes and villains that one can hate. You can't help pulling for the heroes in their trials. You know they are going to win out, but there is still the tension that makes it feel as if they could lose. The regular cast of characters is here in all their humor, intensity and charm.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of Susan Ericksen. She can find things in a reading that I might not find for myself. More of a vocal actress than a reader she really brings the characters alive with her depth of understanding of the story and characters.

  • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Fantastic"

    Story

    Sometimes you need to return to the source to remember just how good it was in the beginning. L. Frank Baum's delightful tale is still wonderful and not too different from the musical movie of the Thirty's that is now the familiar version.
    People are so accustomed to the Judy Garland version that we forget the original story. The biggest shock is a reminder that the ruby slippers were silver.
    Anne Hathaway was absolutely superb in this reading. She acts all the characters with her flexible voice and they are clear and distinct. Additionally she does the characters in a way that will appeal to children and old children alike. I hope to hear a lot of reading from her in the future. She is a super talent.
    The combination of story and performance gives this a "10" rating on almost any rating system.

    For 12,000 years the Galactic Empire has ruled supreme. Now it is dying. But only Hari Sheldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last 30,000 years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire, both scientists and scholars, and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy to serve as a beacon of hope for a fututre generations.

    Story

    I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and "Foundation" along with "Foundation and Empire" and "Second Foundation" rank among the top, both as to the remarkable writing by Isaac Asimov, which stands up very well over half a century later, and the performance of the material by Scott Brick who does a remarkable job of bringing the characters to life.
    Scott does more than read; he creates a cast of characters that act with believable motivation.
    The three above mentioned books were all read by Scott and he is among the best of the vocal actors of today. Buy all three as I did and you will listen this remarkable trilogy of the collapse and rebirth of human society throughout the galaxy many times, as I will.
    It is not inconceivable that George Lucas found some inspiration here.
