    This enchanting collection of stories is the warm and joyful sequel to All Things Bright and Beautiful and All Creatures Great and Small, the memoirs of James Herriot, the world's most beloved veterinarian.

    What did you love best about All Things Wise and Wonderful?

    I GOT ACQUAINTED WITH HERRIOT VIA THE TV SERIES AND LOVE THE BOOKS.


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

    HE GIVES EACH CHARACTER A VOICE AND PERSONALITY. HAVING SEEN HIM IN THE TV SERIES, HE IS THE MOST NATURAL PERSON TO READ THE BOOKS. MY RESPECT FOR HIM AS AN ACTOR HAS INCREASED EXPONENTIALLY BECAUSE OF HIS PERFORMANCES IN THESE BOOKS. HIS ACCENTS, VOICES, TIMING - PERFECT! HE HAS ACTED OUT THE STORIES AND MADE THEM MORE ENTERTAINING AND REAL.


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

    SINCE IT IS BROKEN UP INTO DIFFERENT STORIES, ITS EASY TO PICK UP AT MY CONVENIENCE.

    This faithful dramatic adaptation brings to life the many characters and stories now loved by millions of readers. The loving and compassionate Father Tim, the rambunctious Emma, the spunky Puny Bradshaw, the wayward Dooley, crusty old Miss Rose and Uncle Billy, Homeless Hobbes, newcomer Cynthia Coppersmith, and the ever-faithful Barnabas: they're all here to welcome you home. Once you've been to Mitford, you'll never want to leave.

    THE CHARACTERS ARE ACTUALLY DIFFERENT PEOPLE, LIKE RADIO THEATER OF OLD, WITHOUT THE ADVERTISING.

    I LOVE THE ENTIRE SERIES, BUT I LOVE THIS THEATER VERSION OF AT HOME IN MITFORD BEST.

  • Atlas Shrugged

    As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of Objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

    Shawn Levasseur says: "Edward Hermann's masterful performance."

    ATLAS SHRUGGED GIVES SOME CRITICALLY IMPORTANT INSIGHT ON OUR CURRENT POLITICAL SETTING. IT HIGHLIGHTS, IN STORY FORM, THE DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING.

    When their last outgoing flight is cancelled, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single-engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley, knowing that she needs to get home just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack, and the plane crashes into one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

    The irresistible tale of 19-year-old Martha Lessen, a female horse whisperer trying to make a go of it in a man's world. It was thought that the only way to break a horse was to buck the wild out of it, and broken ribs and tough falls just went with the job. But over several long, hard winter months, many of the townsfolk in this remote county of eastern Oregon witness Martha's way of talking in low, sweet tones to horses believed beyond repair---and getting miraculous, almost immediate results.

    In the best-selling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted. Heartwarming and redemptive, Oogy is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

    Newbery Award-winner Gary Paulsen's best-known book comes to audio in this breathless, heart-gripping drama about a boy pitted against the wilderness with only a hatchet and a will to live. On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.

    A User says: "the whole family loved it!!!"

    I have had the sequel, The River, for several years. I hope you make it available.

    A divorced woman, Roberta Jewett, returns to Camden, Maine, with her 3 daughters, to start a new life on her own. It's the summer of 1916 and Roberta faces the obstacles of rumors and innuendo, not to mention the lack of support from her mother and sister. In her efforts to rebuild both her life and a ramshackle house on the harbor, Roberta endures violence, betrayal, and her share of pain. But she also finds love, friendship, and acceptance from a most unlikely source.

    "You need to correct your info"
    Overall

    I purchased this book thinking either the "unabridged" or the "3hrs 10 min", was wrong. I figured since David Dukes narrated the "unabridged" version which I own on cassette, I was probably safe in assuming it was unabridged. I was WRONG! The book has been abridged all to HECK! The unabridged version is 12 hours in length. I called about this mistake a couple months ago and waited for it to be corrected, and got tired of waiting. I'm upset about my 1st purchase from Audible. YOU NEED TO CORRECT YOUR INFO, and i hope you will get the unabridged version up.
