    A Pushcart Prize-winning author and contributor to the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, and GQ, Colum McCann is renowned for his carefully constructed character studies. No exception, Let the Great World Spin follows the fortunes of a menagerie of New Yorkers through a day in 1974 - the day of Philippe Petit's death defying tightrope walk between the newly built Twin Towers.

    Robert says: "An essential addition to your Audible library."
    "Question "glowing" reviews"
    Overall

    I suffered through every page of aparant pointless, descritive prose hoping it lead to a connected ending. In the future I will totally ignore ***** ratings the lower ratings are much closer to the truth. For refernce,authors who entertain me are Baldacci, Grafton, Meltzer, Burke, Brown, Flynn, Griffin, McCullough, Preston, Lutz to name a few.

    The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good...and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.

    Glen Gaines says: "The Kushiel series in order"
    "Publisher's glowing critique unsubstantiated."
    Overall

    In reading 300 audio books, "Kushiel's Dart" joins only 2 others condemed to the bottom of the pile, hopefully never to be read. Anne Flosnik is an excellent narrator, and brings feeling to the work, however learning a list of characters all with unique names, from a referencless, abstract culture is not entertaining. After 2 I was hoplessly lost in lala land.

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    Deborah says: "Christmas/Birthday in July"
    "Swan Peak Very Interesting cover-cover"
    Overall

    Supurbe narration. Intensely interesting. Embodies Montana values. It's man's reading. Some isolated women might find it's too earthy. But I loved everything about this book.

    New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown is back with a spine-tingling story of murder and betrayal, and a homicide detective's struggle with his own rules of conduct. When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the key to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job.

    Joey Rae says: "Disappointing At Best"
    "Thank you Sandra Brown"
    Overall

    Ricohet maybe the most touching, entertaining romantic mystery listen of my experience. Outstanding reading, audio reproduction quality, intense character development, magnificant plot fill me with joy and appreication for living in a world where such art florishes. Sandra Brown's grasp of human nature, and creativity in interuptating this nature in her characters simply holds me in awe. For me, this was a wonderful experience.
