    Tarzan of the Apes tells the story of John Clayton, born in the coastal jungles of Africa to John and Alice Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she-ape Kala after his parents died, Clayton is named "Tarzan" and raised in ignorance of his human heritage. Feeling alienated from his peers due to their physical differences, he discovers his true parents' cabin, where he first learns of others like himself in their books, with which he eventually teaches himself to read.

    Story

    I thought that the story was narrated with great emotion and expression. I may not like the ending............but it is very Burroughs.

    Unfortunately, the accent used for the lady's maid was too thick at times to understand.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Story

    This sequal was wonderful and Jennifer is a delight to listen to. The history was wonderfully displayed but not overly so. The frustrating part were the pauses between chapter announcement and the chapter, several times I thought that it had stopped working because they were so long. It took the flow from the story.
    Deborah is a wonderful writer and I find that just when I come up with a question, she answers it in her story. The writing in both her books were very intuitive and I look forward to the third! Deborah please hurry!! LOL
