  • To Say Nothing of the Dog: Or How We Found the Bishop's Bird Stump at Last

    Story

    In this Hugo-winner from Connie Willis, when too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

    Sara says: "A fun read"
    "A Delightful Romp"
    Overall

    Never before have time travel, science, literary allusion and the sticky matter of Victorian manners been brought together so charmingly and so seamlessly. The prose itself is a perfect mix of the modern and the Victorian style, and the reader carries it off with perfect aplomb. The story is witty and delightful, the characters both exasperating and endearing, and the entire 20 hours slide by in a kind of dream of delighted amusement. I couldn't recommend it more!

  • Night Train to Memphis: The Fifth Vicky Bliss Mystery

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 37 mins)

    Story
    (110)

    While on an all-expenses-paid cruise down the Nile, Vicky takes on a new case involving a plot to rob the Egyptian museum. With Sir John Smythe, reformed jewel thief and Vicky's lover, the prime suspect, she prepares for shipboard romance and a dash of intrigue.

    Judith says: "Vicky's Egypt trip is fun for Amelia fans"
    "Quite a Ride"
    Overall

    I think the thing I love most about Ms. Peters' books is that they are so darn educated. If you want a smart read that still gives a thrill, this is high on the list. A warning of a slight ribald edge to the sensitive reader, however. Ms. Rosenblat's performance can only be described as first rate and not to be missed.
