    Story

    I loved everything about this book. Based on the best information available, the author put together a terrific story. It left me wishing that there were more complete details and records from this reign.
    The narrator did a great job too, I really enjoyed it this book!

    The story is ok but the narrator is way too nasal.
    I'm partway through the first book and I think I'll have to get the book to finish it.

    Minerva marks the delightful debut of The Six Sisters, a family saga in six volumes that will recount the romantic adventures of the six marriageable daughters of a country vicar, the Reverend Charles Armitage, in Regency England. The eldest, Minerva, is enchantingly beautiful - but a prude. She lives in the country looking after her siblings while her mother reclines on a chaise longue happily inventing new malaises.

    I do really like a good comedy of Victorian Manners story and I loved this one. I'm looking forward to reading the whole series. M.C. Beaton put a good effort into this one!
    I liked the narrator too, especially when she was doing the men's voices.
    And I love finding a new narrator that I like!

    A cult classic in the United Kingdom since its first publication there in the 1970s, Don't Point That Thing at Me is the first of a series of hilarious and dark-humored crime thrillers featuring the Honorable Charlie Mortdecai: degenerate aristocrat, amoral art dealer, seasoned epicurean, unwilling assassin, and acknowledged coward.

    Story

    I listen to this book once a year or so and it never fails to make me laugh. Simon Prebble narrates better than I could read it in my head. A fun combination of Wooster and Bond. If plot is very important to you it might let you down a bit, but I wouldn't let it stop me from enjoying this book. I wish there were more that just 3 installments.

    The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerie’s survival—but no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations.

    Story

    This is a book for teens, not adults. I'm on part 2 right now and the story just has not developed. At all. The narrator is hard to listen to as well so overall, not worth the credits.
    I won't spend any more on this author or narrator.

    When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions.

    Alison says: "Love this One of my Favorites of Sophie Kinsella's"
    "great"

    This was everything we like about Sophie Kinsella, fun, not too heavy but interesting. Believable characters and good narration make this worthy of your audible credit.

    New mum Emily wants revenge on the stick-thin assistants who laugh at her post-baby tummy and post-baby budget. But frumpiness has its advantages when you're wielding a secret camera - and sending the footage straight to head office. Store manager Sandie has a lifelong love of the world of retail - the glitz, the magic, the stockroom. Then she's fitted up by an ambitious assistant and secret shopping is the only way to keep her one passion alive.

    The green and gold of France during a hot August is poignantly remembered by Cecil, the middle sister of a family of English children on holiday in the champagne country of the Marne. The sudden illness of their mother means the children are left to deal as best they can with the hostile, mysterious, but entrancing world of the Hotel des Oeillets.

    Hannah says: "Wow!"
    "great narration- forgettable story"
    Overall

    Greengage Summer isn't really about anything and I found it a bit confusing to tell the truth.
    The narrator was great though and if it wasn't for her I would have quit listening halfway through.

    I love this book! The narrator is terrific. I find myself laughing out loud in the car. The boys dorm world in 1990 South Africa is brought alive by the author & narrator.
