    Flashman is back! When the memoirs of Sir Harry Flashman, the celebrated Victorian soldier and scoundrel, first came to light 30 years ago, we were introduced to adventures related with verve, dash, and meticulous historical detail. Now come three new episodes in the career of this eminent and disreputable adventurer.

    Overall

    Flashman's jaundiced-eyed view of history is refreshing. If you are just plain tired of playing nice, Flashman's your man.

    Case is the voice of my Flashman and Elsbeth.

    Flashman stories cover Victorian and Edwardian England from 1820-1915. The historical research is accurate but your girlfriend might not like it.

    Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as Prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Airforce.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.

    The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board....

    Story

    The only bad thing about this book is that it is the last in the series. I can only hope Westerfeld has another story brewing that we can look forward to.

    Alan Cumming is every bit the pro as a reader. His reading gives voice to each character and is flawless.

    This was a great pairing of author and reader and was a set that we purchased books 2 & 3 the morning of the release and had them listened through within days.

    I will listen to them again so it was well worth the price.

  • Assassination Vacation

    • ABRIDGED (7 hrs and 24 mins)

    Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other, a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage.

    Rachel says: "extremely entertaining and informative"
    "Recommended"
    Overall

    Sarah Vowell is definite as a consonant. Five stars aren't enough!
