    Subtitled Richard Sharpe and the Invasion of France, June to November 1913, this story features a corrupt political enemy who is determined to disband the South Essex Regiment, and to destroy the life of Major Richard Sharpe.

    I have listened to all the available Sharpe's series. It is far and away the best spoken series and this one is no exception. I always found myself wondering what would happen next. I found it hard to get out of the car at times so be careful about listening on your way to work. If you enjoy historical fiction you will love this series. I only hope that the rest of the series will become available on Audible.

    "Cliff Hanger Alert!!!!!!"
    Overall

    Let me start by saying that this is a fairly well written and thought out book. Its sole problem is that the author or editor seems to have forgotten that books should have a beginning, a story line, and a conclusion. Unfortunately, after listening to this book for over 27 hours, the author or editor chose to conclude the book with a cliff hanger. I have not doubt the intention is to force readers and listeners to purchase the next book in the series. To me this is a big turn off for any author. My recommendation to perspective listeners is that you should not purchase this book until the next in the series comes out. Even then, you should only purchase this book if the author and editor figures out how to write a proper conclusion. A good author could have done so quite easily with this story line.

    Admiral Jake Grafton takes his wife, Callie, along when the U.S. government sends him to Hong Kong to find out how deeply the American consul-general is embedded in political money raising scandal. And why not? Jake and Callie met and fell in love in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War, and the consul-general is a friend from those days.

    Bob says: "Really liked it, worth the read."
    "Great Book... bad narration"
    Overall

    I have always believed that a well written book is the most important factor in making a good audible book. I did not think a narrator could spoil a good story. This book proves me wrong. I did enjoy the plot, but the narrator made it very difficult to get through the entire book. The fact that this book is a "no go" is a reflection of the narrator... not the author. I have enjoyed several other Coont's stories.

    As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately.

    Elias says: "Finally here!"

    Overall

    All I can say is... that's 24 hours that I'll never get back. The book seems like it could get interesting at any time, but never actually does. The big climax never comes. This book is one of a series and I imagine that something really interesting happened in the books before this one, and could happen in the books after this one, but this book is a waste of time.

    Here is one of those rare novels, the first in an epic series, that completely transports the listener to an unforgettable time and place in history. At Talavera in July of 1809, Captain Richard Sharpe, bold, professional, and ruthless, prepares to lead his men against the armies of Napoleon into what will be the bloodiest battle of the war.

    Nicholas Winn says: "Great and you don't have to have read the others"
    "Sharpe's Eagle- Great Listening Experience"
    Overall

    I purchased this book as a first attempt at historical fiction. I found it difficult to find a good place to stop listening. I enjoy historical fiction and this one contains enough historical detail to keep it interesting just from that point of view. In addition, it has a very compelling plot and enough interesting characters to keep the listener engaged through out the telling of this story. I would recommend listening to this series in order if possible. The first available is Sharpe's Rifles. Start there and see what you think.

    No, the "Moonstone" isn't a celestial relic, it's a gigantic yellow diamond of unearthly beauty that was given to Rachel Verinder as a present on her 18th birthday - and stolen that very night! Betteredge, one of the most beloved butlers in English literature, is the focus of this seminal detective novel, which examines how one family's life is turned upside-down by the theft. And find out why the answers to all of life's problems can be found in the pages of Robinson Crusoe.

    Catherine says: "One of the best readings ever"
    "The Moonstone is a bit slow"
    Overall

    This book is probably very well written, but is alittle slow for the listener. The version I heard was broken into three parts. There was so much extra information (sidetracking) throughout the narration it detracted from the listening to this unabridged book. While it is enjoyable trying to follow the plot twists, getting through the gibberish is difficult.
