    Ex-Chief Investigator Arkady Renko is in deep on the “slime line” - the fish-gutting station - in the Polar Star, a Soviet fish factory ship of some 250 souls, almost as many secrets, and a dangerous shipboard sub-culture that cares little for the Party, and less for human life.

    Richard Delman says: "Probably the greatest audiobook ever. Really."
    "Over dramatic Reader spoils the book"

    Story

    Really disliked the reader. Ruined the book for me. He over dramatized the writing. If the book had been read by a good reader, I would have finished it.

    The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Peter the Great, Nicholas and Alexandra, and The Romanovs returns with another masterpiece of narrative biography, the extraordinary story of an obscure young German princess who traveled to Russia at fourteen and rose to become one of the most remarkable, powerful, and captivating women in history.

    What did you love best about Catherine the Great?

    Even though this was non fiction, the book flowed and moved very quickly. Not to heavy and very interesting.


    What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

    I liked the reader, although a British accent might have been an added plus.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    She was truly an interesting person, who led a most extraordinary life!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "the best audio book ever"
    Overall

    I've listened to many audio books over the last 8 years and The Help is the best audio book I have ever listened to. It's actually better on audio than it is in book form. The readers are great. They make the book. Loved it.
