    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    A great 20th century novel read brilliantly by Colin Firth. Please, put in front of the microphone again and again.

    Ten houseguests, trapped on an isolated island, are the prey of a diabolical killer. A famous nursery rhyme is framed and hung in every room of the mansion: 10 little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine...

    Story

    And Then There Were None is classic Agatha Christie, an author whose unique skills in deftly defining each character enables her readers to identify with at least one of the protagonists and so to virtually live within the story. Hugh Fraser is outstanding, bringing to life a large cast of both men and women from disparate social milieu. The listener is confused by miscues, occasionally confident of a solution, then shocked by the unexpected twists that build uncertainty on uncertainty. The ultimate resolution is implausible, but it's been great fun to be a part of it all!

    I would especially recommend this high style/minimal gore audiobook for friends unfamiliar with the English mystery as a genre.

  • Hannah Coulter: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 2 mins)

    Story
    (25)

    "Ignorant boys killing each other," is just about all Nathan Coulter would tell his wife about the Battle of Okinawa in the spring of 1945. Life carried on for the community of Port William, Kentucky, as some boys returned from the war while the lives of others were mourned. In her seventies, Nathan's wife, Hannah, now has time to tell of the years since the war.

    Marie says: "Very sweet story!"
    "Elegantly narrated and beautifully written"
    Overall

    Elegantly narrated and beautifully written . . . another wonderful book by Wendell Berry. Susan Denaker's understated Hannah is utterly believable and deeply moving. Even though I'm not Southern, I heard my grandmother's voice and was glad.
