    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Would you listen to The Ocean at the End of the Lane again? Why?

    I enjoyed it but it is a story that unfolds and once you know all the twists and turns it is not the same the second time. I enjoyed this book and have a feeling Neil Gaiman will turn out to be a favorite author for me. I immediately started a second one of his.


    What does Neil Gaiman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really like the way he reads the story. Normally, it is a big mistake to have the author read the book but not with Neil.


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

    Too long for that


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and Neil's performance. My favorite audible book ever is still "the book thief". Everyone should listen to that one!

    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.

    If you could sum up Inkheart in three words, what would they be?

    An enjoyable listen.


    Have you listened to any of Lynn Redgrave’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. Lynn Redgrave is wonderful. I had to return the next book in series, ink spell, because the narrator was awful. I will have to read Inkspell and then listen to Inkdeath. Allen Courdener narrates and he was wonderful in The Book Thief!


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable for all ages.

    Paul Bäumer is just 19 years old when he and his classmates enlist. They are Germany’s Iron Youth who enter the war with high ideals and leave it disillusioned or dead. As Paul struggles with the realities of the man he has become, and the world to which he must return, he is led like a ghost of his former self into the war’s final hours. All Quiet is one of the greatest war novels of all time, an eloquent expression of the futility, hopelessness and irreparable losses of war.
