    This is the story of the unhappy family of Anna Karenina. The novel contains much concerning Tolstoy's spiritual crisis and his search for the meaning of life. But it is also chiefly about marriage, and the growth and death of love.

    "Most probably the best novel I have ever read."

    If you could sum up Anna Karenina in three words, what would they be?

    This is an wonderful story of the human condition. The various aspects of our humanity are captured in different ways through the characters in the story. The depth in this book is amazing. There are many excellent books which I would recommend but this book is a must read.

  • The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1

    Story
    (1771)

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    David says: "mouth watering"

    Story
    Where does The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The stories and characters are very engaging and entertaining but the stories can be a touch repetitive. In all a fun read and interesting to read the originals after so many movie and TV versions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1?

    The very open way the use of cocaine is described and discussed. In particular Dr Watson's succinct reasons to Holmes of what damage he was doing to his brain. They are consistent with modern research.


    What about Charlton Griffin’s performance did you like?

    The reader does and excellent job of reading in character.

    In this major new work, Peter F. Drucker discusses how the new paradigms of management will change our basic assumptions about the practices and principles of management. Drucker explains "The New Information Revolution", discussing the information an executive needs and the information an executive owes.

    Roger Smith says: "Drucker for the Next Century"

    What did you love best about Management Challenges for the 21st Century?

    Drucker is a quantum leap ahead of other management writers. His breadth of understanding of organisations and the changing social issues in society put this book in a special class. His views on future trends is very apt and puts much of the changes in the world into context. This is much more than a management book. Highly recommended.

    Bill Bryson was struck one day by the thought that we devote more time to studying the battles and wars of history than to considering what history really consists of: centuries of people quietly going about their daily business. This inspired him to start a journey around his own house, an old rectory in Norfolk, considering how the ordinary things in life came to be.
