    Fly away with Peter Pan to the enchanted island of Neverland! This first chapter book adaptation of the classic novel, originally published in 1911, tells the story of the boy who never grows up. And when they join Peter on his magical island, Wendy and her brothers are in for exciting encounters with mermaids, an Indian princess, and pirates! Let the amazing adventures begin!

    H. says: "This may not be the story you think you remember"
    "You've seen the movie now listen to the book!"
    Overall

    I grew up with the Disney Peter Pan and loved it so I got this book. And was extremely pleasantly surprised to discover that it is even BETTER as an audio book. Jim Dale is a master reader and this story is really a lot of fun for adults as well as children. A lot of hidden humor.

    p.s. I would love to see Peter & the Star catchers on audible.

    Reporter Sierra McIntyre is determined to find out who is kidnapping homeless retired Ghost Hunters off the streets of Crystal City, and more importantly, why. When her search for answers leads her to interview the new Guild Boss, John Fontana, she's ready with her questions.

    "Writing great Reader dissapointing"
    Overall

    The book was well written and enjoyable DESPITE the reader. She read males just fine; however she read the main female charachter as if she were a sterotypical blond - vapid. Her reading was really quite disappointing. All in all I'll be reading other books by Jayne Castle but I'll be avoiding this reader.

    In the heart of the California gold country, three-year-old Sarah McKensie is orphaned by a stagecoach robber and then adopted and nursed by a she-wolf in this playful homage to the American tall tale. As she matures, Sarah learns to assist her pack by contributing human tools to the hunt and, eventually, interacting with humans. With her best friend and pack-sister, Beka, at her side, Sarah becomes a local legend: the Wild Angel of the Sierras, rescuer of imperiled travelers.

    Deborah says: "Amazing, Mesmerizing Read"
    "Not just for kids"
    Overall

    This is a superbly written and read audiodrama. The reader does accents, animals, males and females in an incredible performance. The book has fascinating charachters and really brings the life of Northern CA during the gold rush to life. Truly a fantastic read!

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    This is a wonderfully quirky modern day fairytale of a knight in suit and tie. It is read superbly and there are no dull moments. This has relistenability!

    1893 is a tough year in Montana, and any job is a good job. When Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as ranch hands at the secretive Bar-VR cattle spread, they're not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a comfortable campfire around which they can enjoy their favorite pastime: scouring Harper's Weekly for stories about the famous Sherlock Holmes.

    Fred says: "For Holmes Sake"

    Overall

    It started out fun. Great premise. Two good charachters, the story just sort of petered out. Loved the short story it was based on and so got this. It's well read but I probably won't listen to it again.

    Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars have led Castillo and his team to Uruguay, where the man they seek is murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the dirty-money chain, those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They've left just enough of a trail, though, for Castillo to pick up the scent and to follow it wherever it takes him. He ends up...well, not exactly where he expected.

    Ed says: "Great story even better narrator"
    "A fun book"
    Overall

    Wish it weren't abridged.

    Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin star in these four gems. In "The Christmas Party", Wolfe condescends to uncharacteristic theatrics, which aren't enough to clear him from suspicion of murder. The "Easter Parade" tempts Wolfe to commit larceny for an orchid. "A Fourth of July Picnic" has Wolfe scheduled for to appear as an orator. But his day in the sun is rained out by murder. The last selection, "Murder Is No Joke", is a whodunit in a couturier's salon, where a murderer is dressed to kill and kill again.

    Michael says: "Two of the Best Wolfe Shorts and Two Ok"
    "Fun"
    Overall

    Listening to these will make you wish there were more...

    Murder strikes thrice in these three baffling mysteries of crime and detection. First, Stout's great detective, Nero Wolfe, develops an appetite for the sweet taste of revenge when someone slips something most foul into his lunch. Then a couturier's beautiful sister uses Archie Goodwin, Wolfe's man about town, as her ready-made alibi. Finally, Wolfe has a run-in with the law after a mysterious old woman leaves a package at his brownstone that pits him against a cunning criminal and the U.S. government.

    Michael says: "Three Stories All Good, but Two were Repeats"
    "Nero Wolf"
    Overall

    Always fun. The stories are fantastic.

    When someone makes a present of a fer-de-lance - the dreaded snake - to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows he's close to solving two apparently unrelated murders. As for Wolfe, he's playing snake charmer in a case more deadly than a cobra and whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer with poison in his heart.

    ShySusan says: "One of the best crime series of all time."
    "The first Nero Wolf novel"
    Overall

    This first Nero Wolf novel is worth a read because this is where the series started. However, the tropes are not yet completely set. Nero and Archie are great but not yet the more fully developed personalities we know from some of the later books. Still, if you're a Nero Wolf fan you really can't live without it.

    In these three baffling mysteries of motive and murder, even the great Nero Wolfe finds himself stumped. First there is the case of the two passionate lovebirds who want to make sure that neither is a cold-blooded killer. Then it's off to the races, where Wolfe must choose from a stable of five likely suspects to corral a killer on horseback. And finally the detective finds himself the confidant of a distraught, self-described grifter who claims a murderer is stalking Wolfe's own brownstone.

    Michael says: "Three OK Stories, Homicide Trinity much better"
    "Fun to listen to"
    Overall

    Hearing Archie needle Nero & Nero Needle Archie is truly a delight.
