    Young Princess Irene is sent to the country to be raised in a half-farmhouse, half-castle located in the side of a mountain. While exploring the top of the castle, Irene becomes lost and inexplicably finds her way to a mystifying and beautiful woman spinning a thread. Princess Irene is drawn to the woman whom she discovers is her great-great-grandmother. But after she returns, her nurse, Lootie, refuses to believe in the old woman's existence.

    All I can say is I loved this book. I would ride around the block before going home if I was at an exciting part in the book. The narrator was very good.

    Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past.

    Vanessa says: "Inkspell indeed"
    "Even Better than the First"
    Overall

    If possible, Ink Spell, is better than Ink Heart - more action and adventure, more twists and turns - now we can hardly wait for Ink Death

    Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

    Cynthia Lee Reneau says: "EXCELLENT!!"
    "Great Listen!"
    Overall

    We first listened to this on a family vacation - everyone loved it and when we finished we couldn't wait to get Ink Heart. Great story line - something out of the ordinary. Now we hear the movie will be out early in 2009. Lynn Redgrave is a wonderful narrator!

  • Walking from East to West: God in the Shadows

    Story
    (12)

    Ravi Zacharias was born in India and has literally moved from the East to the West and the West to the East and repeated the cycle again and again to answer skeptics' questions about whether God is alive, who Jesus is, what is truth, and whether we can really find absolutes. Ravi has spoken of his own journey only in bits and pieces in his other books and talks.

    Abhilash says: "Great book!!!"
    "An enjoyable book to listen to."
    Overall

    What an enjoyable book to listen to. I heard Ravi speak before and sometimes he can get pretty intellectual. But this is about his life, and how he came to believe in the God of the Bible. And who could be a better narrator than Ravi himself. It is a fascinating story.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    Victoria says: "loved it."
    "What a great story!"
    Overall

    This was a great story. I've never read a Jane Austen book before, and I wouldn't have listened to this one, but my brother got hooked on the PBS mini-series. So he read it and really enjoyed it. I was going on a long trip so I got it to listen to. It was a little hard to get into, but after a while I was hooked. I couldn't wait to hear the end. The narrator was perfect for this story.

  • The Princess and Curdie

    In this sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, Curdie has returned to his life as a miner and has dismissed the supernatural happenings of the past, believing them to have been a dream. When Curdie callously wounds a pigeon, his conscience leads him to Princess Irene's mystical great-great-grandmother for help. She has him plunge his hands into a pile of rose petals that burns like fire. Extraordinarily, this grants him the power to see what kind of "animal" a person is at heart.

    Tom says: "Another wonderful George MacDonald book"
    "Another wonderful George MacDonald book"
    Overall

    After reading The Princess and the Goblin, I couldn't wait to listen to this one. It was just as good as The Princess and the Goblin. Again, the narrator was excellent.
