    "Awesome narration"
    Overall

    The narration on this was fantastic. Listening to Fagan makes your skin crawl - it's that good. I had to get the unabridged version. I can't imagine Dickens with the wonderful commentary cut out. I highly recommend this book and am going to check out what other's have the same narrator.

    A mysterious boatman on the Thames, a drowned heir, a dustman and his wife, and a host of other Dickens characters populate this novel of relationships between the classes, money, greed, and love. The 58 characters are presented with remarkable clarity by David Timson.

    A. Millard says: "A Masterpiece"
    "Good Book - Good Reader"
    Overall

    Another great Dickens book with an excellent narrator. One might say there are almost too many characters but it was still very enjoyable.

    In Dead Man's Walk, Gus and Call are not yet 20, young men coming of age in the days when Texas was still an independent republic. Enlisting as Texas Rangers under a land pirate who wants to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans, Gus and Call experience their first great adventure in the barren great plains landscape, in which arbitrary violence is the rule -- whether from nature, or from the Indians whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico.<

    Loved the book and Will Patton's characterizations

    In 1897, at the age of 50, Bram Stoker was touring manager to the actor Henry Irving and was enjoying a modest success as a journalist and writer. Publication in that year of Dracula was to bring him international and lasting fame.

    Bo Laughlin says: "Great Book - Almost ruined by the narrator"
    "Horrible Narrator"
    Overall

    I read this series quite some time ago and decided to listen to it on audio book. I loved the first book but, when I tried to listen to this one, the narration was so incredibly bad that I wasn't even able to get through the first part of it. This guy "might" be good enough to read want ads from the paper out loud but, when it comes to reading a book aloud, he is HORRIBLE.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    Phillip says: "I couldn't put it down...5 STARS"
    "Ok but........."
    Overall

    The narrator was ok. The book was ok but I often wanted to slap the idiots in the story. What annoyingly obtuse people. The main character vacillates between flashes of brilliant insight and flat out failing to see the obvious or being seemingly unaware of things that are common knowledge.

    I don't normally complain about the length of a book, in fact, I tend to get the longer titles. I never get abridged titles. However, this one could have been a good 4 hours shorter without leaving out anything of value.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    I read this book when it first came out and thought I'd try the audio version to help with my commute. Great story and excellent narration.
