    Would you consider the audio edition of Whispering Rock to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the audio performance is great. Therese Plummer gives the characters life and much better to listen to than just reading the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whispering Rock?

    I have not yet had one certain moment that stands out in any of the stories. The author and narrator do such a wonderful job bring it all together.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    Melinda


    Who was the most memorable character of Whispering Rock and why?

    Melinda, because she is strong and supportive in her own way, and that brings out the best in all the other characters.

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

    no, too lengthy. I will always recommend audiobooks narrated by John Lee, his performances are always worth it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Starburst?

    There wasn't a memorable moment.


    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite character. John Lee gave an excellent narration, that is the reason I chose to keep listening, because he keeps you listening.


    If you could rename Starburst, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't rename it.

  • Nightwoods: A Novel

    Charles Frazier puts his remarkable gifts in the service of a lean, taut narrative while losing none of the transcendent prose, virtuosic storytelling, and insight into human nature that have made him one of the most beloved and celebrated authors in the world. Now, with his brilliant portrait of Luce, a young woman who inherits her murdered sister’s troubled twins, Frazier has created his most memorable heroine. Before the children, Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian landscape....

    This book is very well written, making it an excellent narration for the very talented Will Patton. He is very easy to listen to. He made the story and characters come alive, as if the author had written the book, just for his voice. Great Listen!

    What a voyage it is, I was glad to keep reading, to follow each character, was an honor. This series brought back my literary world, that I once enjoyed. I found this series on the yournextread website,after reading some of the classics. I began with audible to help my kids and found it to be very helpful to them and me, too. I not only visit these two websites, more, but we visit the library more. For a busy Mom, this is the way to keep everyone, reading.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

  • Of Mice and Men

    Story

    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing Of Mice and Men (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: a friendship and shared dream that make an individual’s existence meaningful.

    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....

    When Mr. Earnshaw brings a black-haired foundling child into his home on the Yorkshire moors, he little imagines the dramatic events which will follow. The passionate relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and the foundling, Heathcliff, is a story of love, hate, pity, and retribution, the effects of which reverberate throughout the succeeding generations.

    The narration team of this book, made the story come off the pages, as if you there with the characters yourself. They have done Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights justice, in every way. What a story, enjoyed it lots.
