    Austen’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet deals with the issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Austen at her wittiest.

    A generation after the events of The Long Earth, humankind has spread across the new worlds opened up by "stepping". A new "America" - Valhalla - is emerging more than a million steps from Datum - our Earth. Thanks to a bountiful environment, the Valhallan society mirrors the core values and behaviors of colonial America. And Valhalla is growing restless under the controlling long arm of the Datum government.

    This was fun! I'm very pleased that this is a series. I sort of wish Joshua would get a little more pissed off about how people use him.

    For generations the misty Shadowline has marked the boundary between the lands of men and the lost northern lands that are the lair of their inhuman enemies, the ageless Qar. But now that boundary line is moving outward, threatening to engulf the northernmost land in which humans still live - the kingdom of Southmarch.

    There's a bit of clicking and screeching in the beginning of this audiobook. It nearly deafened me while using headphones. But it goes away after a bit and other than that, this is a lovely story with exquisite narration.

  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

    Since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 and Through the Looking Glass six years later, Lewis Carroll’s nonsensical tales have delighted the world with wildly imaginative and unforgettable journeys. While charming children with a heroine who represents their own feelings about growing up, the Alice stories are also appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

    Story

    If you are looking for a good book to listen to in a silent room, by yourself, with nothing else going on and completely sound proof to the outside world then you have found the perfect book. Otherwise, have fun listening to a man whisper. I actually started laughing out loud at the idea of me, going about my day, to the constant, unintelligible whisper of an old man. Which is exactly what I was doing up until that moment, except when he decided to scream in my ear. There is no happy medium in this book. The beginning of Through the Looking Glass is as far as I got and it was just too absurdly irrational to go on. Christopher Plummer is dynamic, never doubt it, but "too dynamic" is a thing this audiobook has come to make me believe in.

    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    Story

    I love this series. Frank Muller is a narrator that I would just listen to a story for the sake of hearing him read it. His inflection and variety are really amazing. I was nearly heart broken when I discovered he didn't finish the series but George Guidall is really amazing as well. I suppose Mr. Mullers interpretation of Eddy's voice kind of threw me off but thats the only thing that comes close to a complaint.
