    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    What did you like best about Bonhoeffer? What did you like least?

    I appreciated learning more of this important person in the Christian faith. However, the book is very poorly written, At first I thought that the narrator had made a mistake and repeated a rather large section of the material. But then it happened again and I realized that the author deliberately repeated himself very often. I would rather have ahard copy so I could pass over the repeated sections.

    Adam Dalgliesh takes on a baffling murder in the rarefied world of London book publishing in this masterful mystery from one of our finest novelists. Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team are confronted with a puzzle of impenetrable complexity. A murder has taken place in the offices of the Peverell Press, a venerable London publishing house located in a dramatic mock-Venetian palace on the Thames. The victim is Gerard Etienne, the brilliant but ruthless new managing director, who had vowed to restore the firm's fortunes.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The philosophical elements, such as the exploration of what personal identity means and how it is expressed in life.


    What does Penelope Dellaporta bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She expresses the characters in different accents that I would not even know about let alone be able to imagine as I read the book.


    Any additional comments?

    One very disturbing thing about this audio book was that every 30-40 minutes a sentence or two would repeat. It bacame very disturbing by the end of the book

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's nothing more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods.

    Sydney says: "a gentle mystery"

    Would you listen to Still Life again? Why?

    Tis was a murder in a small town, but the small town was in Quebec, so there was an element of the exotic. The characters came from several walks of life and the main detective knew how to communicate with them all. Well done


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
