    Jack London's classic adventure story about the friendship developed between a Yukon gold hunter and the mixed dog-wolf he rescues from the hands of a man who mistreats him. White Fang is a companion novel and thematic mirror to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild.

    What did you love best about White Fang?

    I love that it comes from the dogs point of view.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of White Fang?

    When his final owner saves him from the "beast"


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

    Tom does a great job in making all the characters accents and voices. You can really get the feeling and the idea of all the different people that are involved.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life is tough when you're part wolf And they know it

    America is falling, ready to join the Roman Empire as a distant memory in the annals of history. The year is 2027. Tired and desperate, the American people are deep in the middle of The Second Great Depression. The Florida coastline is in ruins from the most powerful hurricane on record; a second just like it is bearing down on the state of Texas. For the first time in history, the Middle East has united as one and amassed the most formidable army the world has seen since the Third Reich.

    Book in the series. I was not so thrilled about the narrator as he did not read with enthusiasm. His ability to do the different characters was not the best I've heard in audible books though he was bearable. I guess we'll see who read the second book.

    Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact.

    In this Hugo-winner from Connie Willis, when too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

    It is a time of profound change for Ellie Linton. Enemies are everywhere. Some come crawling over the hills others drive in and knock on the front door. Sometimes her friends are there and sometimes they are not. Ellie fights every inch of the way. But when courage and imagination are not enough, when she is trapped and helpless, Ellie must face the end of life as she knows it...standing alone, sustained only by her own strength.

    After six incredible books, John Marsden has written the final volume and a last adventure for Ellie, Lee, Homer, Fi, and Kevin. It may be the end of the series, but does it mean the end to Australia as we know it or the end of the war? Or both?

    Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

    The story starts off right where the last one ended. Thankfully nothing was left out. I loved the addition of new characters and guard members. The Moag leader is a real coward. I think he knows he will not win the war so he, in my opinion, cheats. The guards final decision to regroup is smart. The narrators are brilliant and I'm glad make doesn't have to read all of the girls parts and visa versa. Great job! Now on to the next one!

    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, It is a rich tale with a touch of history! Keeps you interested.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Maddelin, Im not sure how to spell it but the main character is my favorite.


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

    No, I haven't listened to him before but he did an outstanding job on this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Every part that the main character was able to pull himself, and others, out of a situation by digging deep and forcing himself to go on.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire book including the history lessons that intertwine are fasinating and mind capturing. You want to finish it in one sitting, which is impossible to do if you work or go to school or have a life.
