    Experience Macbeth as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world.

    My daughter was taking a literature class and was required to read Macbeth. I had not read since high school ( many moons ago!) The is awesome. If you are needing to "understand" what is going on.... listen to this.

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    I agree with someone's review from an earlier book. I can't even imagine reading these books myself now. I believe Davina Porter is THE BEST Narrator I have EVER listened too!

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    I love this series, and I love to read. However, I enjoy Davina Porter SO MUCH that I can't even imagine reading these books now. She is probably the best Narrator that I have EVER listened to. Man she's good.

    Story

    disappointed. I was NOT. It isn't a happy story. Not one part of it. I kept expecting it to get worse. I don't think it did. No it isn't a fairytale ending, but I don't know how a story this dark could get any closer. All in all, I enjoyed the entire series. Now, I think I will find a mindless, happy story with a happy ending .... mmm... In which Pooh goes in search of Honey. :)

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    If you could sum up The Hunger Games in three words, what would they be?

    I was reading when I couldn't listen and listening when I couldn't read. Great story, loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is nothing that I didn't like.


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

    I did both. But I love Carolyn McCormick. She's great in everything I have ever listened to her read. Sometimes, I think that after I listen to her read, I read to myself differently. If that makes sense.


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

    yes
