    Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw.

    Story

    As soon as I finished the first book in the Clifton Chronicles, the second was released. I was thrilled with the timing because I LOVED the first. Can't wait for the third to be written. I have not read Jeffrey Archer in many years, but intend to read all that I have missed.

    It's not the dead that seem strange to Quirke. It's the living. One night, after a few drinks at an office party, Quirke shuffles down into the morgue where he works and finds his brother-in-law, Malachy, altering a file he has no business even reading. Odd enough in itself to find Malachy there, but the next morning, when the haze has lifted, it looks an awful lot like his brother-in-law, the esteemed doctor, was in fact tampering with a corpse, and concealing the cause of death.

    Story

    The title fooled me at first. I greatlly enjoyed Timothy Dalton's narration. The story was a little difficult to get into at first, but once I did, I truly enjoyed the book. It took me a short time to figure out the characters and to put everything into place. I do recommend this book .

  • Dreams of Joy: A Novel

    In her beloved New York Times best sellers Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and, most recently, Shanghai Girls, Lisa See has brilliantly illuminated the potent bonds of mother love, romantic love, and love of country. Now, in her most powerful novel yet, she returns to these timeless themes, continuing the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearl’s strong-willed 19-year-old daughter, Joy.

    Story

    I loved Janet Song's narration. She did an excellent job and that is what made me want to listen and continue with the book. This book was not as good as the one before it, Shanghai Girls. I found it to be rather depressing and hard to believe at times. If you have read the first, than by all means read this one.

    Something very strange -- and sinister -- is going on in the Russian woods at Borodino. In a place called Mrs. Ivanova's Charm School, young KGB agents are being taught by American POW's how to be model citizens of the USA. The Soviet goal -- to infiltrate the United States undetected. When an unsuspecting American tourist stumbles upon this secret, he sets in motion a CIA investigation that will reveal horrifying police state savagery and superpower treachery.

    Story

    Remembering the headlines and story of Russian spies living among us just a few years ago made this a very interesting and exciting story. My interest and curiousity were maintained throughout the book. I especially enjoyed the narrator. He did an excellent job.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.
