    Elegant, enigmatic Jay Gatsby yearns for his old love, the beautiful Daisy. But she is married to the insensitive if hugely successful Tom Buchanan, who won’t let her go despite having a mistress himself. In their wealthy haven, these beguiling lives are brought together by the innocent and entranced narrator, Nick – until their decadent deceits spill into violence and tragedy. Part morality tale, part fairy tale, The Great Gatsby is the consummate novel of the Jazz Age. Its tenderness and poetry make it one of the great works of the 20th century.

    Ian C Robertson says: "The Very Good Gatsby"
    "Great insight into life in the Roaring 20's"

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Where does Defending Jacob rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top. I couldn't stop listening!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Defending Jacob?

    The vacation.


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    Yes, I liked his performance of the male characters. His voice for the wife wasn't as credible and grated on my nerves.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It didn't make me laugh or cry, but I really liked it.
