    Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

    It's worth listening to! It's quick and enjoyable. Who can't relate to Alice's adventure in Wonderland? The narrator has a lot of different characters to portray and does a pretty good job of doing it.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book had religious sap all over it. Once I was 25% through... I was just cringing and regretting continuing. I finished the whole book and regret it. There was no surprise ending, nothing to make my suffering all worth while. It was a horrible book. The writing wasn't very artistic or poignant. BUT the story is what killed me. I hated it. Literally probably the worst book I've ever "read".

Its hero is a bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn't even met keep trying to kill him. (He has decided to live forever, even if he has to die in the attempt.)

    This novel may be very long and very detailed as far as character and dialogue goes, but that is the power and beauty of this story. I know all the characters so very well at this end of this long, often humorous, sad, boring, exciting, sad, and enjoyable story. I think the author sometimes uses monotony to help illustrate that which his characters are going through. It's a great experience and the narrator did an admirable job of preforming it. One way or another, you should experience this book.

Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    It kept my attention, but was rather predictable, which was maybe the point. I'm also not sure WHY this story was written... Is it symbolic? Is there some deep and powerful meaning behind the story line/characters/writing style? It was interesting. The narrator did a great job.

    It's very repetitive. But it's a classic, right? It's worth a listen. Sometimes it is very easy to zone out. I'm not sure if this is the writing or the narrator, but honestly, missing a few minutes of this book, doesn't leave you in the dark. There's no story line. It's more like a guide for generals in war. So, this information may very well come in handy next time I play Risk.

    Leo Tolstoy is widely regarded as one of the greatest of all novelists for such works as War and Peace and Anna Karenina. He also wrote a number of outstanding short stories. This is one of his best.

    I honestly haven't finished this story EVER. I fell asleep the first time I tried to listen to it, and since then have only used it to help me fall asleep and boy does it work! Great sleep aid and far cheaper and healthier than Tylenol PM! The story may be fantastic, but I've never been engaged enough to listen! :/

    Fitzgerald is an amazing author. And this short story very well illustrates the ideals and stereotypes that go along with age and the aging process.... it's a very interesting story and really makes the reader ponder the issues it brings up. The narrator did a fine job. And it was well worth listening to.
