    On holiday in Cornwall, the three children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that: it is the key to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching for it themselves, the Drews put their lives in peril.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "A short but excellent tale."

    I bought this for my 10 year old grandson and I am not sure which of us enjoyed it more! It is a nicely paced story which held our interest. Some great twists and also connections with history.

    Nine years ago, Molly Tanner witnessed a young girl's abduction in the busy city of Philadelphia, shifting her occasional clairvoyance into overdrive. Two days later, the girl's body was found, and Molly's life fell apart. Consumed by guilt for not acting upon her visions, and on the brink of losing her family, Molly escaped the torturous reminders in the city, fleeing to the safety of the close-knit rural community of Boyds, Maryland.

    Would you try another book from Melissa Foster and/or Kate Udall?

    I probably wouldn't listen to another of Melissa Foster's books. I might give a listen to another book narrated by Kate Udall, depending on the subject.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No real surprise.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I felt like the narrator was speed reading, not a lot of inflection to her narration.


    Was Chasing Amanda worth the listening time?

    This is one time when I would say I might have enjoyed an abridged version better. There seemed to be a lot of going on and on that didn't add to the story line, just got a little boring and predictable.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "World Without End - Ken Follett"
    Overall

    I am a great Ken Follett fan and loved Pillars of the Earth. World Without End does not disappoint. I was addicted! I listened to it every chance I got.

    With Nicholas Parsons in the chairman's seat, Just a Minute is the unfailingly witty series in which Paul Merton, Clement Freud, and a variety of guest players attempt to speak for one minute on a given topic: without hesitation, repetition, or deviation!

    A real treat to listen to. A laugh-out-loud experience.

    Different people react to disasters in different ways. When an Intercity service travelling from Kent to London joins Paddington, Hatfield, and Selby in a deadly list of notoriety, it isn't only fate who decides who is killed: one passenger uses the opportunity for argument to spill over into murder; while another, blonde, beautiful Amy Petty, sees the train crash as an opportunity to leave her life behind.

    A great listen! Good characters and interesting story lines. The story came together neatly and believeably at the end.
