    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    Was The Hangman's Daughter worth the listening time?

    I wouldn't listen to it again. I was over it before the story was done but kept with it just in case it got better. It didn't.

    I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado - taking you with it - you have no choice but to go along, you know? Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Eh - I would suggest reading the book over listening to it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Devon Sorvari’s performances?

    No - I thought her voice was mean and rude most of the book. While the character of Amy is not a positive, peppy girl, Devon Sorvari's portral is a bit brutal for the character. I considered not listening to the rest of the book because of this. The fluctuations in her voice did not match the words being read for most of the book, for me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is part of a series and book 2 has not been published yet (let alone recorded for audio). SPOILER: This book does NOT end with Amy defeating Dorothy, good vs. bad, the battle is not won and another twist is thrown in. It left me more pissed off than excited that there might be more. Bad ending for me.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    This story was good and in Dan Brown style but I found myself waiting for the end to come where in his other books I was captivated the whole time. Good book, just not my favorite.
