    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would. Les Miserables is an excruciating detailed understanding of the human condition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hugo's ability to describe the mundane in exquisite detail. But, most of all I enjoyed how Hugo describes each characters soul, morals, beliefs and emotions. If you put the story in the 21st century and left the characters as is, you be hard pressed to see any difference in the human condition.

    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.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is for people who like the underworld. It is dark, drab and dreary


    What was most disappointing about Neil Gaiman’s story?

    The story just plodded along.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "A wonderful time travel story w/ a King flare!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    Craig Wasson's interpretation of the main character is A1!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The way George expresses his love for Sadie is soooo endearing.
