The Cruelest Month is my first book by Louise Penny and it is wonderful. The narrator is excellent with outstanding French accent. However, there is a major plot line in this novel that is covered in the first two books. I recommend reading the books in order. I am going back and listen to Still Life and have a wonderful journey with the Chief Inspector Gamache and his team.
I am so delighted to find a new series that I am truly enjoying. I do recommend reading The Last Kashmiri Rose before listening to Ragtime in Simla. I am finding that reading the books in order as the history of British India are key to the integral plots and characters. Joe Sandilands is a wonderful and admirable hero and the images and culture of India are outstanding. If you enjoy a historical based mystery with a touch of romance I highly recommend getting to know Joe Sandilands. The narrator is excellent.
I stopped listening after only about 10 minutes into the book. I have been a member of audible for many years and I have had books that disappointed me, but this book is terrible. The writing is from high school and the performance is from a first year acting class. Though a first year acting class may have been better. In short do not waste your time, your money or a credit.
I purchased Tilt A Whirl over two years ago and I had not listened to it until last night. What a wonderful surprise. I started about 9pm and I was awake till the end. Ceepak is a wonderful hero - a true honest good-guy. Tilt A Whirl had wonderful moments of humor and amazing characters, but also a serious heart-breaking family tragedy. The narrator is excellent and I agree with others - do not let him go! I will be picking up other titles in this series.
I was alone in a strange town in a hotel room when I started to listen to the tale of the haunting of Maddy Clare read by Pamela Garelick and I found myself falling into a mesmerizing and complex ghost story, The tale is an old one of a ghost seeking justice - but Pamela Garelick's performance brought out the heart stopping terror of the ghost of Maddy Clare. Maddy is not a kind and friendly ghost, she is complex and full of anger and demands. So, turn down the lights, light the fire and enjoy a traditional haunting Gothic ghost story.
This is a wonderful joyous celebration from an outstanding actor. I have always enjoyed Ms. Spacek and I truly enjoyed listening and learning about her life's journey. The stories of her early childhood in Texas are delightful and heartwarming. Her Hollywood tales provide insight and a laugh as she discovers her acting instrument and the love of her life. May we all be blessed with an extraordinary ordinary life.
What joy one more Lord Peter story. If I could have one author added to audible it would be Dorothy Sayers. The Lord Peter novels were the first recorded books I checked out of the library and I was hooked. Please bring Dorothy Sayers and Lord Peter titles to Audible.
I read Watership Down when it first was published and I have memories of truly enjoying this tale of rabbits and their daily life and struggle. I purchased WD on sale and I am delighted with this excellent presentation. The story is thrilling and the characters are charming, intelligent, strong and captivating. I highly recommend this excellent both for book and narrator.
Well, what can one say about a mystery about a flock of sheep who wake one day to find their good shepherd dead. The sheep try to solve the mystery of who killed George and find a new shepherd who will continue to read romance novels to them. There were images in this very silly tale that had me laughing out loud. May not be great classic literature, but it is truly a unique story that makes a fun listen.
I love the Major! This delightful tale will warm your heart, make you smile, and let you believe in a happy ending. Ms. Simonson structures the story with surprises and well imagined characters. Peter Altschuler is a wonderful narrator who makes the Major come alive. If you need a little joy in you listening, Major Pettigrew is well worth an investment of a credit.
I am a fan of Binaca Amator her voice is lyrical and takes me into the characters head and spirit. Dragon's Keep is a good fantasy novel written for teens. The plot is interesting and the book has good character development. However, I felt that the ending was rushed and built on a series quickly written plot devices to produce the ending and conclude the book. I was to say the least disappointed.
