    Award-winning poet Regina McBride enters the realm of fiction with her stunning coming-of-age novel, The Nature of Water and Air. Flowing with lyrical prose and Irish myth, this mesmerizing story is permeated by a beautiful, romantic sadness.

    Overall

    If they had negative stars this would get it. This book was sooo boring. And when it got to one of the characters masturbating in a bathtub I turned it off. Waste of money and time. Do not buy this book. How stuff like this gets published is beyond me. I don't know how else to say it but please don't waste you money or credits.

    Gaius Petrius Ruso is a divorced and down-on-his-luck army doctor who has made the rash decision to seek his fortune in an inclement outpost of the Roman Empire, namely Britannia. After a 36-hour shift at the army hospital, he succumbs to a moment of weakness and rescues an injured slave girl, Tilla, from the hands of her abusive owner. And before he knows it, Ruso is caught in the middle of an investigation into the deaths of prostitutes working out of the local bar.

    Love is in the air in the colourful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly has finally proposed to the darling of his youth, Kitty O’Hallorhan. There’s a wedding to be planned, but before O’Reilly can make it to the altar, he and his young colleague, Barry Laverty, M.B., must deal with the usual round of eccentric patients—and crises both large and small. Being a G.P. in a place like Ballybucklebo often means more than simply splinting broken bones and tending to aches and pains.

    Story

    I love this whole series. I hope this is not the end. The writing is descriptive, with out being overly so. The characters are comfortable old friends. I love catching up with the going ons in Bally-Buckle-Bo. And wish I were there saying "hows about ya" Makes me miss Ireland. If you have not read/ heard any of the other books- go start at the beginning, you will not be sorry.

    Two years have passed since the events of the best-selling Christine Falls, and much has changed for Quirke, the irascible, formerly hard-drinking Dublin pathologist. His beloved Sarah is dead, the judge lies in a convent hospital paralyzed by a devastating stroke, and Phoebe, Quirke's long-denied daughter, has grown increasingly withdrawn and isolated.

    Story

    Not only is this book x rated - I skipped most of a chapter that described sex acts in great detail, but it is slow as well. Quirk just stumbles around not doing much detecting or getting much accomplished. Last Benjamin black for me. Wish audible had a rating system.

    Like the author, like the story, male voice is OK, however the female screams her way through the book. As she gets excited her voice goes up an octave or three and she starts yelling. It is a bit better in the second book, but if you sensitive ears stay away!

    Japan, 1857. For centuries, Japan has been on its own; isolated by choice from the rest of the world. But the Western powers are now at its shores, demanding to be let in; the government is crumbling, and revolution is building. The age of the samurai is ending and in its place a new Japan will be born. And a young woman is readying herself for marriage in this, the most tumultuous period of her nation's history.

    Story

    I loved her tales of the otori series. Maybe that set my expectations to high for this book. I have finished part 1 and am on to part 2, and so far nothing has happened. There is no chemistry no pop, no wonder. Just plodding. It's almost just a character study. If you get this book do not expect to find the wonder, mystery and magic of her other books. I was very disappointed. If I could afford to not listen and get something else I would.

  • Princes of Ireland: The Dublin Saga

    The saga begins in tribal, pre-Christian Ireland during the reign of the fierce and mighty High Kings at Tara, with the tale of two lovers whose travails cleverly echo the ancient Celtic legend of Cuchulainn. From that stirring beginning, Rutherfurd takes the reader on a powerfully imagined journey through the centuries. Through the interlocking stories of a memorable cast of characters we see Ireland through the lens of its greatest city.

    "Great book"

    Loved it all the reader was good the characters were great and interesting, Thankfully it was long as I didn't want it to end.

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"
    "The story gets lost in the story"
    Overall

    This is a good book and a good read (er listen). However, I feel that the story of the boy gets a little lost in all the stories. There are points when I think ok lets get on with the story and cut out all the storytelling. Yet in the end it all seems to work out ok.

    When the famous German author Sebastian Haffner died at the age of 91 in 1999, a manuscript was discovered among his unpublished papers. The book was begun in 1939, but with the advent of World War II, Haffner had set it aside. His family made the decision to publish it, and the book became a best seller in Germany in 2002. Spanning the period from 1907 to 1933, it offers a unique perspective on how the average educated German grappled with the rise of Hitler.

    Douglas says: "Great Read"
    "Good For Sleeping"
    Overall

    I listen mainly as I drive, I have heard this reader before and like him, but the book does not hold my attention, I have just finished with the first part and am trying to work up to reading the second part. It will not be while driving though as I find this book puts me to sleep.
