    As Nick peels back layer after layer of lies and deception, buffeted between the buried horrors of the past and the deadly intrigues of the present, he finds his own life - and the lives of nearly everyone he loves - at risk. And the only thing guiding him through this deadly labyrinth are his stepfather's dying words: TRUST NO ONE.

    Story

    I was very keen to start this book after listening to "You're Next"! The story seemed to be leading somewhere but the narration was just awful. After a few hours I couldnt stand it and switched off. The voice was totally monotone and I would find my mind wandering as it just was blah blah blah....

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Zora Neale Hurston’s classic novel begs to be read aloud, and Ruby Dee answers the challenge with utter perfection, capturing the wide range of characters and their diverse accents with grace and power. Their Eyes Were Watching God is the luminous and haunting novel about Janie Crawford, a Southern Black woman in the 1930s, whose journey from a free-spirited girl to a woman of independence and substance has inspired writers and readers for close to 70 years.

    Story

    I do not write many reviews but bought this book after every reviewer had given it 5 stars, and I felt i had to give a different opinion. I was not able to get through the book as it just seemed to go on forever about nothing. Janie did not seem to have many problems in life and in fact had it pretty easy. The reading was wonderfully done but I found the negro accent extremely irritating. I know it is set in a different era, but our ears aren't used to hearing that sort of speech any more.
    One of the most overrated books I have ever listened to!

Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    A very believable storyline and great narratation. Kept me interested to the end without losing any sense of reality as sometimes happens in books.

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    Story

    I had seen the book "The Gunslinger" in shops over the years, and had been curious but had never bought it. I saw it on Audible and thought "theres that book again maybe I will buy it"!! Must have been ka!
    Oh what a tale. I have listened one book after the other and can imagine the frustration of people who have had to wait years for the next book to be written. The luxury of having Roland, Suzanna, Eddie, Oy and Jake travel with me for the last few weeks has been a joy. I thought the ending was perfect and the reading of the original "Child Roland to the Dark Tower came" was an extra gift. Wasnt sure about Steven King putting himself in it but it worked. I found it hard to change narrators half way through, but came to love Georges style and as Roland he was perfect.
    All in all a hard act to beat...what will I listen to now???
