    There were times where I thought the writing was just going on because it had to and it felt a bit drawn out.

    A good story and even though I just had to finish it, it definitely could have been shorter.

    Dan Brown is the best!

    His books are fantastic!

    I've recently been able to introduce my fiance to audio books as he reads all day and find "leisure reading" tedious.... Now we spend evenings listening to books before snuggling up for the night!


    Dan Brown needs to give us more!!

    I just love the way Eoin Colfer writes these books - they are great - I started with them by chance and now have my 12 year old into them to0 - I purchased the books but now have him reading along with the audio - far more fun for him than just reading!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    What a fantastic book!! First I was too apprehensive to start it - then I just couldn't switch it off!! Then I got tired of it thinking I was being given too much useless information, but then I still needed to hear what happens.

    THEN I wanted to fast forward because I couldn't go through the pain or tears and then it was finished and I feel like I've lost some part of my day!!

    An amazing story but Davind Porter is the best EVER narrator I have EVER listened to!!!! She brings everyone to life, everyone has character, you can feel it, experience it and live it with her. THANK YOU SO MUCH for chosing her to narrate this book!! Now I HAVE to download the next one!!! Have to see what happens, I just hope it isn't full of this history from the first.

    12-year-old Artemis Fowl is a brilliant criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's about to take on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules/

    I personally have read this series but am trying to get my 11yr old interested in reading so thought to download this book for him.

    Well he started, then stopped, so I listened to it and it's great to hear the characters put to life.

    Now he's reading it again and is really getting into it and the characters.

    I love these books, hope they carry on for a long time still.

    Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

    But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

    Lajuan says: "Intriguing"

    Overall

    A really good book - all along you think you know who it might be, then you are almost convinced but can't believe it to be true, then it twists!

    Really great and again a TRUE Nora Roberts book - 3 lives, 3 twists - lovely

    Thank you

    In winter, Brianna Concannon's bed-and-breakfast is a cold and empty place. And that's fine with Brianna. She enjoys the peace and quiet, even when icy winds howl at her window. This year, though, she's expecting an unusual guest: mystery writer Grayson Thane, from America. And sometimes a fire can be born in ice.

    Sara says: "Great book! The narrator is amazing...."
    "Brianna is wonderful"
    Overall

    Brianna's story is the reason I could overlook the narrator and download the 2nd book after MONTHS of promising myself I just couldn't stand his voice.

    Brianna goes through so much not only from the first book but right into this one aswell that you have to hear her story and need to find out if it all "ends" in happiness.

    A few twists, a great read - ignore Fiarce and the book is GREAT!

    Shannon Bodine is a talented graphic artist whose life revolves around her job at a prestigious New York advertising agency. Her world is turned upside down when she learns the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon. Respecting her late mother's wish, Shannon travels, however reluctantly, to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melt away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed.

    Astrid says: "Good book, Reader not so appealing"
    "Great story"
    Overall

    It took me ages to start on this series again, purely because I couldn't get past the narrator, but I so enjoyed the first book's story line, I just had to.

    The 3 books come together beautifully - well predicted but that's why you read her!

    The narrator - I just didn't like - I sort of cut him off and only listened to the story - if one can understand that.

    Still worth the read!

    Nervous flyer Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She really thinks that this could be her last moment. So she starts telling the man sitting next to her all her innermost secrets, including how she once threw a troublesome client file in the bin. She survives the flight, of course, and the next morning the famous boss of the whole mega corporation she works for is coming for a look at the UK branch. As he walks around, Emma looks up and realises ­ it's the man from the plane.

    Eve says: "An enjoyable listen"
    "Pathetic"
    Overall

    WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!! A holiday read? Truly no one can be THIS desperate?

    The story line is worse than any Mills and Boons paperback I've ever read.

    I truly thought I could do with an easy listen whilst on holiday - I couldn't even get past chapter 5 and that's after fast forwarding!!

    This doesn't even deserve 1 star, but I had to put down a rating.

    I also don't like the narrator her voice is not "listeanable".

    Oh the absolute worst ever - Don't waster your credits or your megs to download.
