  • The Deeds of the Disturber: The Amelia Peabody Series, Book 5

    After an adventurous season spent excavating at Dahshoor, and narrowly averting the clutches of the Master Criminal, Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson and her spouse prepare for a quiet summer in England. The social and domestic routine, though interrupted by the precocious escapades of their only child, Ramses, hardly seems much of a challenge for the indomitable Emersons.

    "Excellent Narrator"
    Overall

    For fans of the Amelia Peabody series, I highly recommend Ms Rosenblat's narration. She provides Amelia with a lovely british accent and appropriate voices for the other various characters. From a gruff and husky Emerson to the high and childlike Ramses her narration is completely entertaining. As this is the 5th Amelia Peabody narration I have listened to, three by Ms Rosenblat, I have established a definite preference for her's.

    For vibrant, lovely Jean Suttman, the fellowship to study in Rome was the culmination of all her dreams, until she undertook an innocent expedition to the ancient subterranean Temple of Mithra.

    Overall

    Entertaining, not as enjoyable as the Amelia Peabody series but still a enjoyable light listen.

    When attractive American Jacqueline Kirby is invited to an English country mansion for a weekend costume affair, she expects only one mystery. Since the hosts and guests are all fanatic devotees of King Richard III, they hope to clear his name of the 500-year-old accusation that he killed the little princes in the Tower of London. Jacqueline is amused by the group's eccentricities until history begins to repeat itself.

    James says: "Good for driving"

    Overall

    enjoyable listen, not overly surprising plot.

    Evanovich fans rejoice! Stephanie Plum is back in town, along with her sidekick Lula, her Grandma Mazur, and an ever-widening cast of freaks, criminals, deranged felons, and lunatics looking for love. And just when Stephanie thinks her life can't get any more complicated, in walks the mysterious Diesel. A man who seems to show up at the most inconvenient moments.

    Joann says: "Classic Stephanie Plum"
    "Good and reliable fun"
    Overall

    as a fan of the Stephanie Plum numbered series I find these little excursions with the same base characters highly enjoyable, the narrator does a fine job and as expected of Janet Evanovich it's a fun lite listen.

    Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

    Overall

    This was the first title I've listened to/read by this author and I found it quite enjoyable. It is darkly funny and not for the squemish. I can't look at my Ikea catalog with out laughing now.

    Nevada Barr quickly attracted the attention of mystery fans when her first Anna Pigeon mystery, Track of the Cat, appeared. Now she immerses the intrepid park ranger in a perilous search that will take her far below the waters of Lake Superior. As Anna spends her days patrolling its shores, the surface of Lake Superior fills with tourists. In the depths below lie an ancient ship and the bones of its sailors.

    Charlene says: "Great mystery, totally enjoyed it"
    "Engaging, good read"
    Overall

    Barbara Rosenblat has once again brought the character of Anna Pigeon to life. The plot, location and characters are very enjoyable. This is one of my favorites from the series.

    Overall

    I would definite recommend reading this series in order, 1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree then this one. And luckily Audible has them all. This is a nice addition to the series and kept my interest throughout. I enjoyed the narrator as well. Listened to them with friends on a car trip to Oklahoma....time sped by.

    Two-Dollar Bill delivers all the storytelling twists and whip-smart banter readers have come to love in Stuart Woods's thrillers. In this latest, Stone Barrington, the suave Manhattan cop-turned-lawyer, is back on his home turf facing down a brilliant Southern flimflam man.

    Bill says: "Wonderful example to Stuart Woods' books"
    "Very good..."
    Overall

    This is the first book I've read by Stuart Woods, and it was very good. I enjoyed the narrator tremendously. The story kept a good pace and I did not find any fault in the characterizations. I'd recommend this book. I just wish Audible had more UNABRIDGED books by him as I stay away from Abridged.

    In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

    iphone reader says: "Excellent!"
    "Another great Emerson-Peabody adventure"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite so far of the Amelia Peabody series and a great listen. Barbara Rosenblat is an excellent narrator.

    The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

    Debra says: "Good Story, Painful Narration"
    "3 stars for author, 0 for narrator"
    Overall

    I listened to "Crocodile on the Sandbank" narrated by Ms O'Malley and barely made it through, I found the narration extremely tedious and bland. I switched narrators to Ms Rosenblat and was immediately enchanted with books 2, 3, 4 & 5. I am disappointed that this sixth book in the series is not available from audible with Ms Rosenblat's narration, as I have had to endure a rather bland rendition to continue the series.

    The sun rides high over the British Empire and the light still sparkles brightly in Amelia Peabody's eye as she returns for her second adventure in archaeology and romantic mystery as recounted in her lively journal, The Curse of the Pharaohs.

    Michelle says: "So much fun!"
    "Barbara Rosenblat rules!!"
    Overall

    I adore Ms Rosenblat's narration and characterizations. I made the error of purchasing the first Amelia Peabody book narrated by Ms O'Malley and boy is there a difference. Ms Rosenblat's narration is hands down the best!!
