    Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice - until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone. That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable. Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po....

    This book was magical, exciting, and "ineffably" sweet! It was very well written. The narrator made the characters come alive. I loved it!

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    This book was so engrossing, I couldn't stop listening! Sometimes I will fall asleep listening to a book. That didn't happen with this one. I couldn't even fall asleep when it was finished. I loved Hurwitz's characters, except for the ones I hated. The writing was excellent! It conveyed so much feeling of pathos and love and terror! I would love to read more from this author, but I don't know if my heart could stand it.

    Scott Brick did a wonderful job reading the book! His portrayals were so convincing, and he was able to completely convey the emotions the author intended.

    Wow!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I finished this wonderful book with many tears. Most of my favorite Stephen King books are from his earlier books. However, this is an awesome book! Not only is this a work of amazing science fiction/horror, it is a beautiful, tender love story. It was hard to pull myself away from it long enough to recharge my iPod. Stephen King, you rock! :)

    The narrator did an excellent job portraying the different characters and conveying the terror and the sweetness in his voice!

    Well done! Let's dance! :)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    I lived this book! I suffered and laughed and cried with the wonderfully developed characters. I was fearful for the people involved with the writing of the book in the story. I even had to stop listening for awhile, because I was afraid of what was coming. It was a relief to know that I'd had nothing to fear. This was a wonderful and amazing book! The readers did a superb job!

    Thank you, Kathryn Stockett, for this book, and thank you for the glimpse into your own life at the end!

    Along the southern coast of England, atop the White Cliffs of Dover, stands a castle. And at that castle's old keep is an orphanage. Delphi Keep has seen many youngsters come and go through its gates, and Ian Wigby and his sister, Theodosia, are happy to call it home. Life has always been simple at the Keep, and the orphanage safe, until one day, Ian and Theo find a silver treasure box. And within the box, a prophesy. Three thousand years ago a great Greek oracle wrote of a quest.

    Story

    This is an outstanding fantasy book! It is full of wonderful characters, adventure, and danger. I love books about magic and the supernatural, and this one fits the bill. I was riveted! The characters were very human and vulnerable but very courageous. I didn't want to stop listening. Victoria Laurie has written other great books, but this one is a classic.

    Susan Duerden's portrayal of the characters is wonderful. She grabbed my attention and held it. I was amazed at her ability to create so many different voices.

    The only complaint I have is that when I came back to Audible to look for the next book in the series, it wasn't here. Audible, please bring us Victoria's next book, The Curse of Deadman's Forest, and use Susan as the reader again! Thanks!
