    It all started with a birthday present that Omri didn't want: a small plastic Indian that was no use to him at all. But an old wooden cupboard and a special key brought his unusual toy to life, and strange and wonderful things began to happen.

    My 8 year old was entranced by this book as was I. The naration was great. Perfect solution when I'm too tired to read to him at night. We snuggle together to listen to Audible stories. Thank you!

    Story

    In 1948, after surviving World War II by escaping Nazi-occupied France for refugee camps in Switzerland, the author's grandparents, Anna and Armand, bought an old stone house in a remote, picturesque village in the South of France. Five years later, Anna packed her bags and walked out on Armand, taking the typewriter and their children. Aside from one brief encounter, the two never saw or spoke to each other again, never remarried, and never revealed what had divided them forever.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Viseral...moving...breath taking"
    Overall

    I knew nothing of this book when I rushed to download it for a long road trip. But the high ratings inspired me to buy it. I just finished listening to the first 1/3 of the book and am swept away by the brilliant reading, the rich prose, and characters so real that I feel like I'm somehow in the story. I want to be friends with these women - converse with them - explore and wonder with them. It will take your breath away.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "Amazing story and audio"
    Overall

    I felt a loss when the story ended. I wanted it to go on forever. The characters become friends that you know you'll sadly never see again. The audio was amazing - so well read (aka acted) that I felt like I was "watching" a play. I hear that they're turning the book into a movie. How will they do it -- the complexity and time travel seems overwhelmingly complicated to put on film. But I'll be first in line to see it.

    All along the Mediterranean coast, the Roman Empire's richest citizens are relaxing in their luxurious villas, enjoying the last days of summer. But the carefree lifestyle and gorgeous weather belie an impending cataclysm, and only one man is worried. The young engineer Marcus Attilius Primus has just taken charge of the Aqua Augusta, the enormous aqueduct that brings fresh water to a quarter of a million people in nine towns around the Bay of Naples. His predecessor has disappeared.

    Marty-Seattle says: "Brought my visit to Pompeii back to life"
    "Spell binding, rich."
    Overall

    The narration is fabulous, the story compelling. At first I thought, "Why do I want to listen to a 9 hour story about which I know the ending?" Worth every minute. I'm sorry it had to end.
