    I really was disappointed in this book. I kept thinking that the main character telling the story would get it...........the world is not black and white, people have flaws........she never did. The book was extremely juvenile and the main character was obnoxious. Made myself finish it thinking something would happen to fix the bad but it didn't. Truly unrealistic.

    Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast. When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation.

    I have been enjoying this series and this was a good story but I did not notice that the reader was Dick Hill before I downloaded. Not sure I would have listened had I realized. Just not a fan.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Story

    This is one of the most well-written books I've read and I have read many! This is such a touching story. The way the story is written is why it is such a page turner, you have to keep reading to find out why the characters feel the way they do. This book definitely touched my heart. The reader did so much to enhance this novel as much as any I've encountered, she was amazing in her inflection. Many thanks for having novels such as this for download.

    It is September 1919: Twenty-one-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from London to Norwich to deliver a package of letters to the sister of Will Bancroft, the man he fought alongside during the Great War. But the letters are not the real reason for Tristan's visit. He can no longer keep a secret and has finally found the courage to unburden himself of it. As Tristan recounts the horrific details of what to him became a senseless war, he also speaks of his friendship with Will - from their first meeting on the training grounds at Aldershot to their farewell in the trenches of northern France.

    This was such an intriquing novel. I was quite surprised by the ending but it led to understanding of the lead character's demeanor through the book. Many thanks for this excellent read.

    From the author of The Power of One comes a new novel about Africa. The time is 1939. White South Africa is a deeply divided nation with many of the Afrikaner people fanatically opposed to the English. The world is also on the brink of war, and South Africa elects to fight for the Allied cause against Germany. Six-year-old Tom Fitzsaxby finds himself in The Boys Farm, an orphanage in a remote town in the high mountains, where the Afrikaners side fiercely with Hitler's Germany.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    I have seen this movie and read the book twice but nothing prepared me for how great the audio version would be. The characters came alive and had big personalities, especially Gus McRae. Many thanks to Audible for having this classic among their treasures. Have not had a better told story in a long time.

    For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past - and get away with murder. Peter Straub's classic best seller is a work of "superb horror" (Washington Post Book World) that, like any good ghost story, stands the test of time - and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.

    Story

    I read this book nearly 30 years ago and still remember how it spooked me yet I could not put it down. Ghost Story in audible form was excellent and just as scary as the first time I encountered it. This book has characters I have remembered for over 30 years and it was like hearing from old friends and scary enemies. I'm not much on scary stories but this one was great.

She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    Would you listen to The Secret Keeper again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again, lots of hidden clues to the surprise ending.


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator made the book come alive. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the book near as well reading it rather than have this narrator tell the story.
