    For 15 years the weaver Silas Marner has plied his loom near the village of Raveloe, alone and in exile, cut off from faith and human love, while amassing a hoard of golden guineas.

    Silas Marner is a story that continues to resonate, and narrator Andrew Sachs does a wonderful job of bringing the voices to life. I listened to the entire book in one day. Couldn't turn it off.

    Story

    Philippa Gregory continues to produced stories backed by a wealth of research that truly bring historical events to life. In this story, Gregory tells of royal intrigue, power struggles, and romance. The story is beautifully crafted and narrator Susan Lyons does a wonderful job of bringing the voices to life. I absolutely adored this book and listened to it for hours at a time. Hated to have to turn it off and was very sad when the story was over.

    Story
    (194)

    In the wake of a humbling incident aboard a canal boat in the Cotswolds, young Captain Horatio Hornblower arrives in London to take command of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop barely large enough to require a captain. Her first assignment under Hornblower's command is as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon Atropos is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasure that lies deep in Turkish waters

    John says: "Great book. Poor narrator."

    Story

    I adore the Hornblower stories and excitedly listened to all of them. The others, performed by Christian Rodska, are magnificent. I couldn't turn them off. Unfortunately, Nicolas Coster has a slow, ponderous storytelling style that is completely out of sync with the adventures or Horatio Hornblower. He actually manages to make this story sound boring. And it's definitely not boring. Listen to the other Hornblowers and skip this one.

    When Percy Harding, Goliath’s most important citizen, is discovered dead by the railroad tracks outside of town one perfect autumn afternoon, no one can quite believe it’s really happened. Percy, the president of the town’s worldrenowned furniture company, had seemed invincible. Only Rosamond Rogers, Percy’s secretary, may have had a glimpse of how and why this great man has fallen, and that glimpse tugs at her, urges her to find out more.

    Story

    I admit I only listened to part of the first part of this book. It just moves too slowly and the narrator's voice is so soothing as to be soporific. In the end, I just didn't care what happened to the characters, so I stopped listening.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Story

    My teenage daughters insisted I read the VA novels, and I admit I wasn't excited about delving into the world of paranormal romance. However, once I listened to the first book, I was completely hooked. The stories are well told, with unexpected twists, and memorable characters. I hate to admit my teens were right, but they were right. These are really fun books.

    The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them . . . including Dimitri.

    Story

    The Vampire Academy series are wonderful page-turners and hard to put down, with memorable characters and unexpected situations. This book is read by a different narrator than the first three, which I didn't like at first. However, once I got used to the slightly different voice, I enjoyed this reading immensely.

  • The Language God Talks: On Science and Religion

    "More years ago than I care to reckon up, I met Richard Feynman." So begins The Language God Talks, Herman Wouk's gem on navigating the divide between science and religion. In one rich, compact volume, Wouk draws on stories from his life as well as on key events from the 20th century to address the eternal questions of why we are here, what purpose faith serves, and how scientific fact fits into the picture.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Language God Talks: On Science and Religion in three words, what would they be?

    A wonderfully thought-provoking thesis on the relationship between god and science, with a hefty dose of talmudic thought mixed in. Wouk explains why he believes in god, and how he has explained that belief to some of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century, including Richard Feynman. The narrator has a wonderful voice that brings this book to life.
