  • Get Back Jack: Hunt For Jack Reacher, Book 4

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Diane Capri
    • Narrated By Kelley Hazen, StorytellerProductions
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar’s off-the-books assignment leads them to the surviving members of Jack Reacher’s elite military unit. Five years ago, Reacher sorted and destroyed a team of arms dealers before he moved on. But he made mistakes. Now, his bad luck and trouble legacy plunges Otto and Gaspar into the minefield of a grudge war between Reacher’s fearless old friends and chilling new enemies.

    "love story with Jack Reacher books"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    First let me start this review saying that I've never written a bad review in my life. I know the impact that they cause as I've made choices myself based on reviews. I gave this a lot of thought.

    For the last several months I have devoured all of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series and loved them! Dick Hill does an incredible job! Then I listened to the last available book and immediately began searching for more similar books as this type of read was new to me being primarily a historical story reader/listener.

    Then I ran across this series which contained many of the same characters so I thought "score"!! Story line is good but OH MY the narrarating was painful to listen to. Suffice to say I am returning it today after many attempts to get past the Gaspar voice and the attempt at what reminded me of the Dragnet (dating myself and apologies to the younger folks reading this) narrator Hal Gibney which was a great black and white tv series back in the 1950's (I saw reruns - ha). It worked fabulously for that series.

    Perhaps this book would be best read the old fashioned way and I may try that as I thought the story was good if not a little weird as it was all about Reacher - there must be a relationship between Lee Child and Get Back Jack's author Diane Capri as if there were not there would be no way that this book and the entire series would have been published.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Narrating was so laborious that I lost the story line at times.

    What didn’t you like about Kelley Hazen and StorytellerProductions ’s performance?

    Horrible narrating.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    couldnt get through chapter 7 sadly.

  • The Virgin's Lover

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Philippa Gregory
    • Narrated By Graeme Malcolm

    In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. But one woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the peal of bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair with the young queen.

    Sarah says: "Interesting new twist on the"
    "Queen Elizabeth..."

    She was beloved and turned out to be a great Queen. This story shows her weaknesses when she is first crowned and the men she turned to - I think they were lovers but I'm not sure that this all happened but I enjoyed listening - am having to drive to Kansas from Colorado a lot these days and these stories are wonderful for that 8 hour's worth the money and enjoy as I did!!!

  • The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England: A Handbook for Visitors to the Fourteenth Century

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Ian Mortimer
    • Narrated By Jonathan Keeble

    Imagine you could travel back to the 14th century. What would you see? What would you smell? More to the point, where are you going to stay? And what are you going to eat? Ian Mortimer shows us that the past is not just something to be studied; it is also something to be lived. He sets out to explain what life was like in the most immediate way, through taking you to the Middle Ages. The result is the most astonishing social history book you are ever likely to read: evolutionary in its concept, informative and entertaining in its detail.

    Marc-Andr? says: "Detailed, Interesting and Entertaining"
    "If you love Medieval..."

    This book is amazing...I've been a long time fan of these times and have read lots of books like "Here Be Dragons" by Sharon K. Penman which anyone which likes these time should try (and there are two more of that trilogy) - but I've long wondered what it would be like to live there in those times and this book tells the story of how life is there - I've said many times that if I could go back to those times and be a King's sister or wife, I would...but after listening to this book I realize that I have it "pretty good" right here in 2010. This book is great and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys this time in history as I do, to hear what it is probably like. Definitely recommend this!
