    From printer's apprentice to internationally famous scientist, inventor, statesman, legislator, and diplomat, Benjamin Franklin led a most remarkable life. Seldom is history so well articulated by someone who was there.

    Overall

    Enjoyable rendering, giving some feel in a surprisingly easy to listen style. Unfortunately, the account ends in 1757 with his arrival in England.

    Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

    Joe says: "worthwhile"
    "iPod 2X"
    Overall

    Another silly but enjoyable bestseller - but only after I put it to 2X speed on my iPod. Even then, I had to check several times that it was still on that setting. We should have been told what the value of Kroner is in real money.

    Story

    It isn't the first time that identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd have switched identities. Melina, the more impetuous twin, proposes that her circumspect sister take her place as a media escort to NASA astronaut and national hero Colonel Christopher "Chief" Heart. Although it's an enticing offer, Gillian declines for a very personal reason. Besides, she warns Melina, such a switch could have unexpected consequences.

    "For fans of claptrap"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed "Envy" so took a chance on this.
    Cartoon characters and silly overblown improbable action of pure good vs pure evil for fans of this genre.

    Emma Bovary is not content to be the mere dutiful wife of a French country doctor. She yearns for excitement and a sense of romance that pulls at her so strongly she is powerless to resist, even though pursuing her dreams will exact a terrible price. Learn why Gustave Flaubert's compelling heroine has enchanted and puzzled readers for centuries.

    Cynthia says: "Good narrator, terrible recording"
    "BBC calling from London"
    Overall

    The recording sounded like an old BBC shortwave broadcast.
    Museum piece story that time has passed by.
