    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    This was narrarated well, I just didn't really care for the story. The author obviously has a great imagination, but it was a bit much for me. Too much fantasy, too easy an ending where everything suddenly ties up at the end. Not a fan.

  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    "Hilarious and moving"
    Overall

    As always, David Sedaris books are fun to read and even better when read aloud by the author. His inflection adds a certain something. I was surprised that all the stories were comical, some were laugh out loud funny and others were just moving or interesting. Highly recommend.

    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    Kelley says: "I agree with Stephen King"
    "Creepy and fun"
    Overall

    Interesting book. Well read,it was clear and easy to understand the narrator. It made me want to drive longer to hear what would happen next. A good listen.

  • Vanity Fair: A Novel Without a Hero

    Generally considered to be his masterpiece, Vanity Fair is Thackeray's resplendent social satire that exposes the greed and corruption raging in England during the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars. Subtitled "A Novel Without a Hero", it traces the changing fortunes of two unforgettable women: the scheming opportunist Becky Sharp, one of literature's most resourceful, engaging, and amoral heroines, and her foil, the faithful, naive Amelia Sedley.

    Charles says: "Superb Version --- Highly Recommended"
    "Couldn't get through it"
    Overall

    The accents were hard for me to follow and I just got so bored by it I couldn't take it anymore and quit after listening to the first 9 hours. Ugh.
