    Young Princess Irene is sent to the country to be raised in a half-farmhouse, half-castle located in the side of a mountain. While exploring the top of the castle, Irene becomes lost and inexplicably finds her way to a mystifying and beautiful woman spinning a thread. Princess Irene is drawn to the woman whom she discovers is her great-great-grandmother. But after she returns, her nurse, Lootie, refuses to believe in the old woman's existence.

    "A Fantastic Story for Kids"
    Overall

    I believe that this book is a great book for children to learn friendship and bravery. The author writes in a way children under five or six years old can understand. This book is a great book for a family to read together, it is a fun, entertaining,and a page-turner book.

    Of The Lion of St. Mark, G.A. Henty wrote: "I have laid my story in the time not of the triumphs of Venice but of her hardest struggle for existence, when she defended herself successfully against the coalition of Hungary, Padua, and Genoa, for never at any time were the virtues of Venice, her steadfastness, her patriotism, and her willingness to make all sacrifice for her independence more brilliantly shown.

    Jeffrey says: "A Great Listen"
    "Outstandingly entertaining and narrated"
    Overall

    This historical fiction is captivating and the narration is extremely well done. The narrator successfully gives each character of the story (of which there are many both male and female) a distinct, recognizable, and nuanced voice. The history of Venice at the end of the 14th century comes to life herein.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Very informative and entertaining"
    Overall

    This narration is very entertaining and informative. Because of the author's evident bias in favor of evolutionary theory and global warming, a critical listener might want to pair this audio with Michael Crichton's "State of Fear" (also available on audible.com) and perhaps a book on Intelligent Design. Despite these lapses into popular pseudo-science, the narration presents a fresh look into the all-too-human nature of the scientists we otherwise regard as godlike or have, unfortunately, never heard of. The listener will also gain a much needed appreciation of how very little modern man really knows his environment and the way things work.
