    On a languid midsummers day in the countryside, old Adam Godley, a renowned theoretical mathematician, is dying. His family gathers at his bedside: his son, young Adam, struggling to maintain his marriage to a radiantly beautiful actress; his 19-year-old daughter, Petra, filled with voices and visions as she waits for the inevitable; their stepmother, Ursula, whose relations with the Godley children are strained at best; and Petras.

    Annette says: "family. even the gods seem to know about it."

    Story

    Superb job by the narrator. Banville is Banville, which is to say interesting and excellent, but this narrator does him justice. Recommended.

    As Volume 2 of The Egyptian opens, Thebes is in the grip of panic brought on by famine, disease, and the threat of war. The fear crazed mob is on the verge of anarchy. Pharaoh Akhnaton, self-absorbed in his new religion, is now openly despised by nearly all. Sinuhe remains loyal. In the background, the priests and royal household begin to arrange for his removal and attempt to enlist Sinuhe in their plot.

    Story

    The story is fantastic, and highly recommended, but I particularly wanted to praise the excellent job done by the narrator; he brings multiple characters to life and adds something overall to the audiobook, which all good narrators do.

    A History of Rome is the story of a tiny market town on the Tiber, its rise to world domination, and then its slow, terrible plunge to utter ruin. It is the single greatest event in all human history.

    Story

    The narration and production quality were surprisingly high for an older (1930s I believe) history. Certainly recommended.

    The world of ancient Egypt springs magnificently to life in this astonishing historical novel of love, war, political intrigue, and religious revolution. Told from the first person point of view, it is the story of Sinuhe, physician to the royal court of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and his successors in the middle of the tumultuous 14th century B.C.

    Fernando says: "Best historical Novel Ever written"
