    Meet the Roncalli and Angelini families, a vibrant cast of colorful characters who navigate tricky family dynamics with hilarity and brio, from magical Manhattan to the picturesque hills of bella Italia. Very Valentine is the first novel in a trilogy and is sure to be the new favorite of Trigiani's millions of fans around the world.

    Taryn says: "Very Charming"
    "I wish Adriana narrated this book"
    Overall

    I couldn't wait to read Ms. Trigiani's latest book. I have read or listened to all of her books, and I prefer her voice to Ms. Campbell's. I found her voice monotonous and her Italian accents weak. I felt I was listening to a teenager.

    The story was just ok. It seemed like I had to listen for a long time for very little to happen. I hope the next two are more action packed!

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "The Payoff is fantastic"
    Overall

    PLEASE give this book a chance! It takes a while to get through the background information, but it is worth it in the end. Stay with it and you will be rewarded. The second book jumps right into the action, and the author delves into Lisbeth's past. I couldn't put it down. The third book is coming out in Europe this October so it will be out here soon. Hopefully they'll keep the same narrator, as he was wonderful. Highly recommended if you can get through the first couple of hours.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Debbie McKelvey says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Couldn't stop listening"
    Overall

    This book is a must listen - the narrator is superb, and if you like the Count of Monte Cristo, you'll love this. I found myself listening in the car, on walks and even at home during any spare time I had. Enjoy!

  • World Without End

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    I didn't want this book to end. Just like Pillars of the Earth, this will become one of my favorite books. The narrator, John Lee, makes the story and characters come alive. He is the perfect actor for this book. I too, wish he would narrate another thousand page book, but it would still be too short. The characters in the book are very well developed and I would recommend this book to anyone, especially "Pillars" lovers. Don't miss this!
