    Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki.

    Bev says: "Surprised"
    "definitely worth a listen"
    Overall

    I certainly enjoyed listening to this - Thomas Harris is an excellent narrator and writer, and I loved listening to his first three books as well. However, compared to the first three books in the Hannibal series, this book seemed less researched and rushed to release. I still think this is an excellent book, and certainly worth the read.

    In a fantasy world as rich and real as our own, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell stand against the ancient forces which besiege the New World - forces so terrible that when last they threatened, they could only be withstood by sealing off the Old World from whence they came. Now the barrier has been breached, and the New World is again beset by their evil power.

    Story

    The narrator did well, considering the material was pretty ordinary. I like long 'epic' books, but this one actually felt LONG. It was like the author was dragging the word count out so that it was similar in length to the previous books, but had nothing more to write about. The plot was predictable and certainly not Goodkind's best work.

    Trenton, New Jersey. Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a ‘lucky’ bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck.... The job comes with perks in the guise of Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip’s lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky – the only question is... with whom?

    The narrator is excellent - Mooner's voice is hilarious.

    The book is like all of the Stephanie Plum series, same story but different enough that you want to listen to it anyway.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    Story

    Excellent book and great narration. Occasionally the narrator's pauses were mildly distracting but I think I was actively listening for the epic pauses becuase of the other reviews were unfairly critical of this.
    This book should not read this on public transport - unless your prepared for the strange looks from other passengers when you crack up laughing out loud! This book is a hoot. The only dissapointing thing is book two isn't available yet.

    In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, in his forest sanctuary. She seeks his help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence.

    A User says: "Better than the show"
    "Book was reasonable, Narrator was brilliant"
    Overall

    The book is long, which is great for 'value', however the writing is a bit basic and predictable - particularly for the first half. The narrator Sam Tsoutsouvas is fantastic - he brings the characters to life and the book was made better becuase of his narration.

    Apparently you can't buy this book in Australia due to publishing restrictions - what a tease.
