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

    Absolutely, especially to historical fiction fans. Humanity at its best & worse no matter the year or clothes. A story that "spellbinds " you from the beginning & doesn't let go until the fox is found. great characters with so many wonderful voices. Excellent narration & the book never seemed too long .


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Speaks the Nightbird?

    The introduction of the Exodus Jerusalem character, the verbal parry between .Corbett & Bidwell.Matthew arrivung at the Lynch house. The dinner at Lucretia Vaughn's


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    It would have to be the Jerusalem & Lynch character as a matter of the narrators skill. But Matthew was my favorite by far. His consistently dogged yet level headed quest for the truth. This guy just doesnt give up, he couldn't if he tried.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What made the experience of listening to 11-22-63 the most enjoyable?

    This is the first Stephen King book I have ever read. What a surprise it was! From the first page to the last I was simply transported back to 1958. I am old enough to remember so much of what was written about. A stroll back to a familiar place. Could barely put this down to go to work, errands etc. So for me it made time stand still for a while. Treat yourself this holiday. You wont regret the ride.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    The first time


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator seemed to be the only one that could have read this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book ran a whole ladder of emotions, going up & down the rungs at any given moment

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won an Anthony Award for her one-of-a-kind Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. Sookie, a Louisiana cocktail waitress, skilled telepath, and friend to vampires, has a dedicated fan base that grows larger every day.

    Anne says: "Telepathic barmaid, shapeshifters, vampires!"
    "a great series"
    Overall

    what can you say about a series that continues to hold your attention hour after hour. what seems like pure make believe becomes real, and a character in Sookie that just keeps her head up and goes. The series is a delight, the narrator becomes an integral part of the series and the story never dies. Keep it up Charlaine!!!

    Based in part on Dickens's own life, it is the story of a young man's journey from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist. Among its gloriously vivid cast of characters, he e.ncounters his tyrannical stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; the frivolous, enchanting Dora; and one of literature's great comic creations, the magnificently impecunious Mr. Micawber.

    Wow, was I ever. This was the first Dickens I read "voluntarily". It is well appreciated in my present reading. I know there is another reading of this story on Audible & I am here to say that I couldn't be happier w/ Simon Vance's version. From his "Maser Davey" of Mr Peggotty to his villanous "Copperfield" of Uriah Heap, Mr Vance is up for the duty of telling this increible story. I went to this book after listening to "The Last Dickens", purchashed here on Audible. That book introduced me to the American Superstar that was Charles Dickens. Could you just imagine waiting for these monthly installments in 1850? This book is a flawless study of all that humanity has to offer. Charles Dickens was able to put a masterpiece together in masterful pieces. Treat your spirit to this novel. It will give you the strength of the ages. Some things are simply timeless.

  • The Last Dickens: A Novel

    In his most enthralling novel yet, the critically acclaimed author Matthew Pearl reopens one of literary history's greatest mysteries. The Last Dickens is a tale filled with the dazzling twists and turns, the unerring period details, and the meticulous research that thrilled readers of the best sellers The Dante Club and The Poe Shadow.

    Overall

    I am 3/4 of the way through this book & am completely enjoying it. I was surprised to see that there weren't any current ratings. If you are considering this book, don't hesitate. It's chock full of all kinds of things. Historical fiction adventure mystery, skullduggery, the Opium Wars commentary on colonialism and even some timid Victorian romance. But wait there's more! Most of all it's a story about the first American Popstar, the great Dickens. I am already planning to get "Great Expectations" as my next listen. I can't give this 5 stars as I've not yet read the ending but it definitely has 5 star potential.
    If you're interested in taking a step back in time and get a little personal with one of the greatest writers that ever lived get this book!
