    A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens's most exciting novels. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, it tells the story of a family threatened by the terrible events of the past. Doctor Manette was wrongly imprisoned in the Bastille for 18 years without trial by the aristocratic authorities.

    Teddy says: "Truly a Classic"
    "Worth listening to."

    Where does A Tale of Two Cities rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A good story. It also starts you thinking more about history and our time and place.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too intense, and at times too slow.

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    John says: "Exciting Nelson DeMille novel with great narration"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It seems the plot is a bit shallow. Mainly wisecracking and I feel he dragged out what should have been a chapter into an entire boo,


    Any additional comments?

    Of the Nelson DeMille, it was my least favorite.

  • A Wanted Man: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 17

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Bill says: "Wanted Man is Wanting ~ And I Want 14 Hours Back"
    "Not my favorite Reacher."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It just didn't compel me like some other of the Lee Childs.


    Would you recommend A Wanted Man to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not particularly.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    Very slow. Not particularly clear. Also his doing Reacher with his broken nose became annoying.

    This is the first story in the Tarzan adventure novels. The legend begins when Tarzan’s parents are placed on a jungle shoreline by mutinous seamen. Here they establish a crude residence and survive for a time until attacked and killed by a band of apes. But one female ape rescues the baby, takes it for her own, and raises it among a large socially organized tribe of great apes. The baby grows to be a noble man whose great strength and keen senses compel the world around him to bend to his might according to the “law of the jungle.”

    Cheryl says: "Just as I remembered"
    "Classic but dated"

    Would you try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs and/or David Sharp?

    Yes, It's a light and fun story. It's also interesting in that it is so iconic.
