3 kids, 2 moms, 2 dogs, 1 GREAT husband all in one house. Busy life - listening to books is the best escape I have found since I can't seem to find the time to read.

    In an ancient cairn in the wilds of Scotland, Oxford student Simon Rawnson vanishes, seemingly into thin air. Where has he gone? Unsettling signs, a mysterious Green Man, and a Celtic circle chalked on the sidewalk point his roommate, Lewis Gillies, to an impossible answer...and an incredible destiny on the other side of a doorway between worlds.

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (31 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Story
    (3992)

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Daisy - I identified with her and the similarities in our personalities.


    Any additional comments?

    I always enjoy books that challenge me and motivate me to learn more about the subject.

  • A Memory of Light: Wheel of Time, Book 14

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "A long time coming"

    If you could sum up A Memory of Light in three words, what would they be?

    Fulfilling, Memorable, riviting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

    When Egwaine died


    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    their passion, they did not just read it, they performed it, which makes all the difference in the world when you are listening to a book that is the end of a series you started 15 to 20 years ago.


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

    Yes, however that is unrealistic, I can only go to the grocery store so many time before my family wants to go along.


    Any additional comments?

    I started reading this series in my early twenties and started listening to it in my early forties. I am now in my mid forties and very pleased with the ending and the fact the Brandon Sanderson was able to maintain the characters that Robert Jordan had brought to life for me so long ago.
