    This is the story of Brida, a young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for something more. Her search leads her to people of great wisdom, who begin to teach Brida about the spiritual world. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to become a witch.

    "Excellent read!"
    Overall

    I loved this book and found myself randomly stopping the narration to contemplate the ideologies and spiritual concepts presented therein. This is a lovely story that encourages us to view the world with a different set of eyes and openness to the less obvious aspects of our existence in the universe. If you are a Paulo Coelho fan, you don't want to miss this one.

    Story

    Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

    Overall

    I listened to this book in audio and enjoyed the story, but was disappointed with the narration. Enough so that I went with hardcopy editions of the next two books in the series. I found it distracting when the narrator switched to a comedic falsetto for the women's voices and I'm not sure where he came up with the accents he chose for certain characters. Another excellent story from Nora Roberts, but I recommend enjoying it in the paperback version.

  • Anansi Boys

    Story
    (1857)

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    A. Hawley says: "Beautifully narrated"
    "Don't miss this one!"
    Overall

    Neil Gaiman's books are always a delight, but you absolutely have to experience this one in audio. Lenny Henry is a delighful narrator with a gift for seamlessly switching voices from one character to another. He breathes life into each eccentric character in way that makes you feel you know (or makes you wish you knew) this quirky assortment of unlikely folks. The book is rich with dark humor and literally had me laughing out loud on a regular basis. I felt as though I'd just said goodbye to a good friend when the book ended.
