    Overall

    This was a Great buy! Be sure to print the maps before you go.
    Interesting, informative and clear.
    Definitely took us places we would have missed.
    they say allow 2 hours per walk, but you will need a lot more time that that. They take you into churches and museums so be sure to go early as the museums close early. Really enjoyed it.

    The author - a.k.a. "The Baby Whisperer - unlocks the secrets of infant language so that any parents, grandparents, or caregiver can interpret what babies are "saying" and give them what they need.

    Story

    Tracy Hogg really knows babies. her gentle approach really helped us with our newborn. This is an abridged version of the book. it is a great start and you will learn a lot, I'm sure, from this audiobook but we also needed the printed version for reference as well. The audiobook gives a good overview and the printed version is great to look up the specific issue you want to know about at the time. get both, they are really helpful (and watch out for her TV show for extra insight).

    Each of the four books in the series offers real advice from women who have been there, done that, and want other moms to benefit from their trials and triumphs. A perfect gift for baby showers, Mother's Day, or any day, these audio volumes are perfect to download to your audio device and take along in an overstuffed diaper bag. They're designed for the mom who can only find a few minutes of peace each day to listen.

    This was a short little collection of anecdotes. Easy reading if you are a new parent. not sure if it is worth the valuable audible credit though.

    Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second, Hello Wembley, which sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking 54-date Arena tour.

    This is a great biography from a wonderfully funny man. There were points during this book where I was crying with laughter. Remember that it is a biography and not a comedy performance. A wonderful insight into his life so far.

    Welcome to Venice. Gently sinking into the surrounding lagoons, this once great naval power now draws in over three million international visitors each year. But what makes Venice one of the World's top destinations? A World Heritage Site where the only traffic is on water, the city's architecture, culture and arts combine to create a uniquely romantic experience.

    Overall

    This walking tour started out great but then the map and the audio instructions didn't seem to match. We ended up following the map and missing the audio part of the tour for about 4 stops! Thank goodness we had purchased other audio tours before we went, so we just used them instead. This one would have been great if it had been clear on the route. But missing 1/2 the tour was disappointing.

  • The Forsyte Saga

    The three novels that make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family through three generations, beginning in Victorian London during the 1880s and ending in the early 1920s. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women.

    "DREADFUL NARRATOR"

    OH my word, this narrator sounds like they are a child learning to read. The book is great but i could only stand listening to this narrator for 30 minutes before i had to turn the book off. Gutted to waste a creadit.

First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    The DOG is OK! if you are anything like me the second a dog appears in a movie i dread that they are only in the story until something dreadful happens to them. Enjoy this book and the canine hero is OK

    This extraordinary, magical novel is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, a librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36, and were married when Clare was 22 and Henry 30. Impossible but true, because Henry has Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his past, present, and future.
