    "I don't believe in God, but I miss Him." This book is, among many things, a family memoir, an exchange with Barnes' brother (a philosopher), a meditation on mortality and the fear of death, a celebration of art, an argument with and about God, and a homage to the French writer Jules Renard. Though he warns us that "this is not my autobiography," the result is a tour of the mind of one of our most brilliant writers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. This is my first Barnes novel, and to listen to it read by Barnes himself is a real treat. I was so impressed that I bought his other books on Audible, and I find that Alex Jennings does a great job.

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Has Gabriel's Inferno turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This book is way too long. And I found myself switch chapters when descriptions of the heroine's shyness came up. The author spelled out every emotion, do we really need this? I went through the whole book, but should have just close it. Not worth my time. Unfortunately, I already bought the sequel when I started this book, on the basis of the first few chapters which at the time seemed inviting.

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    What made the experience of listening to Fever Dream the most enjoyable?

    I just couln't stop listening. This is the first time I listen to a book by Preston and Clild, and Rene Auberjonois, the narrator, did a great job. The plot is full of suspense and surprises, and the narrator's style is so vivid that the story evolves just like a movie.
