    Doctor Dolittle, a little, lovable, old doctor, has so many animal pets spread throughout his house and garden that patients will not come to him anymore. As a result, he becomes poorer and poorer. But he occupies nearly all of his time as the animals' doctor, and soon discovers that he can talk to the animals; Jip the dog, Dab Dab the duck, and Polynesia the parrot.

    "Delightful kids book"
    Overall

    Just as fun as I remember it from childhood. The narrator's animal noises are kind of annoying though.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "One of my favorite books"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful book and the narrator does a great job with the voices and accents. I noticed that in bookstores Gabaldons books are often filed under Romance, but they are so much more than that. Adventure, science fiction, historical fiction... Beware, this series is addictive!

    The thrilling novel Expired tells the story of a mother struggling against the appalling violence of the city streets - and something even more sinister.

    "Interesting supernatural thriller"
    Overall

    This was a good listen, it kept me interested right up to the end. I liked the supernatural aspect of the story - that reminded me a bit of Frank Peretti's early novels (This Present Darkness) - but from an urban/African-American/female perspective.
    I hope there will be a wider selection of Evie Rhodes' books available on Audible soon!

    In Dark Corner, a Mississippi backwater harbors a growing evil. After David Hunter learns of his estranged father's death in a freak boating accident, he travels to the famed author's home in the quaint burg of Mason's Corner to discover the man he never knew, and something terrifying about himself.

    DMHVetSurveyor says: "Heading to the top of the genre!"
    "Kept me awake at work!"
    Overall

    This was a highly enjoyable listen. It's a thrilling tale of vampires loose in a small Southern town and ordinary people banding together to fight against very long odds. The narration could have been a bit more interesting and the relationship between the two main characters - David and Nia - was a bit too perfect. I hope that Brandon Massey continues to gain a wider audience that includes people from all cultures, he deserves it.

    Story

    In lower Manhattan, a charnel pit of horror is uncovered: the remains of 36 people murdered and gruesomely dismembered over 130 years ago by an unknown serial killer. Just as a museum archaeologist and an enigmatic FBI agent begin to unravel the clues to the killings, a fresh spree of copy-cat murders and surgical mutilation erupts around them. Mixing science and terror in a way only they can, Preston and Child deliver a novel that's as gruesome as it is enthralling.

    Dianna says: "This Book is a True Curiosity!!"
    "Interesting mystery"
    Overall

    Mystery with twists and turns aplenty. I liked Special Agent Pendergast very much and look forward to reading more books featuring him.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of Harry Potter who just discovered this series, and I'm glad to have something to fill the "void" until the final Potter book comes out.
    Looking forward to continuing the saga with "Eldest."

    Meet Ella Turner and Isabelle du Moulin, two women born centuries apart, yet bound by a fateful family legacy. When Ella and her husband move to a small town in France, Ella hopes to brush up on her French, qualify to practice as a midwife, and start a family, but a peculiar dream of the color blue propels her on a quest to uncover her family's French ancestry.

    Beth says: "excellent listening, mediocre story"
    "Time-spanning mystery"
    Overall

    I like all of Chevalier's novels, and this one was no exception. Her style of telling the story from different points of view keeps things moving without being too confusing.

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    John S. Atherton says: "I give the book a five but I won't buy it..."
    "Interesting tale"
    Overall

    This take on Dracula is very interesting and kept my attention to the very end. New details and background were constantly being discovered and the main characters are sympathetic if a tad underdeveloped.

    What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as Tyrannosaur Canyon?

    "Boring and Melodramatic"
    Overall

    This book was a letdown after reading The Cabinet of Curiosities by the same author. The characters were flat and unrealistic. There was not much "mystery" to it either.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    Art says: "The Plant"
    "Visceral and gory tale"
    Overall

    This book was a disappointment. I read some great reviews of it and perhaps my expectations were set too high. There was just a lot of blood and other bodily fluids and it wasn't very scary at all. The only reason I finished listening to it was to find out if anyone survived. If you really want to read this, I'd suggest checking it out at the library where it's free.
