    One of the most enduring American novels of all time, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn follows the adventures of Huck Finn and a runaway slave named Jim as they travel down the Mississippi river on a raft--all in order to help Jim win his freedom from slavery. Told in Twain's unique style, Huck Finn's story is one of the greatest tales of love, respect, and human decency, told through the eyes of an unlearned, but big-hearted, boy.

    Love the story and the narration! The narrator brings the characters to life with his mastery of accents. Mark Twain is a master story-teller.

    In this first novel, we are introduced to suave, handsome Tom Ripley: a young striver, newly arrived in the heady world of Manhattan in the 1950s. A product of a broken home, branded a "sissy" by his dismissive Aunt Dottie, Ripley becomes enamored of the moneyed world of his new friend, Dickie Greenleaf. This fondness turns obsessive when Ripley is sent to Italy to bring back his libertine pal, but he grows enraged by Dickie's ambivalent feelings for Marge, a charming American dilettante.

    Story

    I can't say I liked this book, but I had a hard time putting it down when I started it. The story line left me disturbed and strangely compelled to keep listening.

Cold, isolated, forgotten.Until the Russian Special Forces arrive - and discover that the Doctor and his companions are here too. But there is something else in Novrosk.

    Story

    The reading of the books are horrible and does nothing to cover up the shallow plot lines. Should stick with what works - TV shows. Books is not Dr. Who's strong point.

    Story

    I've listened to many audio books and I have to say that I'm not impressed with this narrator. Much of the time I feel like she's yelling and she reads with too much over-dramatization. My suggestion - just read the book.

    The stories are fun except for the way they are narrated. The narrator sounds as if she is giving a news report.
