    It is 1814 and the defeat of Napoleon seems imminent, if the well-protected city of Toulouse can be conquered. For Richard Sharpe, the battle turns out to be one of the bloodiest of the Peninsula Wars, and he must draw on his last reserves of strength to lead his troops to victory.

    I really enjoy this series and reader. The action is engrossing and the history is not too intrusive.

    Inventive and uniquely original novelist Jasper Fforde sends his literary sleuth on another wildly imaginative journey through time and literature. Thursday Next faces a sinister global multinational corporation represented by Mr. Schitt-Hawse, beats the magistrate from Kafka's The Trial at his own game, and trains for her next assignment by apprenticing herself to Miss Havisham. Thursday then accepts the ultimate challenge: capture Acheron Hades, the murderer of characters from the classics.

    Anna says: "a zany action packed romp through lit."
    "Infinitely delightful"
    Overall

    The Thursday Next stories by Jason Fforde are a rare treasure - they are witty, funny, imaginative and take you to a place you really have never been before. When I started listening to this series, I explained the best parts to anyone and everyone. Mr. Fforde has a plot, but many the best parts are not tied up in plot elements and are liberally sprinkled throughout in side tales - each one of which is fun and original and may just appear as the critical turning point that allows Thursday to save the day.
    The reader is wonderful.
    If you have any whimsy in you and a love of words and books themselves, this is a wonderful series.

    The artifact is found seven miles below the surface of the sea and beneath 40 more feet of sand. The Navy's efforts to raise a wrecked submarine uncover it - and set in motion a scientific race to retrieve it, to discover just what it is and where it came from. Denser than any substance known to man, it has broken every drill bit they've tried on it and will not budge an inch. It resists every effort to breach it - or communicate with it.

    Overall

    Little by little as the main character becomes more human and interacts more with humans, so does the listener's interest in the story grows. There are some very sexually frank scenes as well as some gruesome spots. However, the author does involve us in the protagonist's story and the listener is rooting hard for the welfare and love life of the Changeling by the end of the book.
