    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    All the wonderful reviews were the incentive to buy the book and I loved the TV series "Dead Like Me", so I was hyped to really enjoy it. I'm still trying, but halfway through and sometimes it is all I can do NOT to turn it off and move on to another book. It tries too hard to be clever, and comes off like a cheap supernatural romance novel. Maybe I will love it by the end, but somehow........I doubt it.

    After their epic journey across Europe, Ayla and Jondalar have reached his home, the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii, the old stone-age settlement in the region known today as southwest France. Jondalar's family greet him warmly, but they are initially wary of the beautiful young woman he has brought back, with her strange accent and her tame wolf and horses.

    Thomas says: "Part V of a great read"
    "Great continuation of the series!"

    Based on some of the reviews, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy Auel's book as an audio version, but I loved it. I read the first 4 books in the series the old fashioned way, but the narration added a lot to the experience. Ayla is a fascinating character, and I enjoyed the continuation of her story.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "Outstanding, riveting, a must read!"
    Overall

    This is not my type of book. I bought it for my husband, but decided to listen to it myself. I loved this book, even when I was clenching my jaw and closing my eyes at the details of a war that my generation experienced and many of my friends lived and died through. Thank you to Karl Marlantes for writing it and to Bronson Pinchot for a masterful job of reading it!

    Sarah's grandfather was a horseman of rare talent - only the exceptional are allowed into France's elite riding academy, Le Cadre Noir. But life took an unexpected turn, and now from a council estate in east London, the Captain hopes to train his granddaughter towards a better life.

    Kaelin says: "Wow! Amazing story start to finish"
    "Great book for horse lovers"
    Overall

    I bought this book based on the reviews, because usually books about horses are disappointing. Not this one! I loved the characters, the narration, and especially the details about horses, dressage and the "airs" that were accurate and real. The characters are real and developed, and I enjoyed them all. Highly recommend this one!
