  • Jane Eyre [AudioGo Edition] (Unabridged)

    The work tells the story of Jane's early life, her experience at Lowood School and as a governess. Her refusal to accept Rochester's love on any but her own strictly moral terms is a passionate cry for independence.

    Jane says: "Superb narration of a great romantic classic"
    "Fabulous book and narrator"
    Overall

    Jane Eyre is, of course, a fabulous book. But when narrated by Juliet Stevenson, it is brought to life in the most satisfying way. I have loved listening to this book and getting to know the characters (again) through Ms. Stevenson's lively narration.

    I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever. It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris, the most beautiful city in the world. And if I pretend, I can almost believe that my life is normal and everyone I care about is safe. But as long as I’m with Vincent, “normal” doesn’t exist. Gorgeous, charming, and witty, he’s everything you could ask for in a boyfriend - but his destiny is so much more. Even more terrifying than his destiny are his dangerous enemies, enemies who will kill for immortality.

    Story

    There are a lot of books out there like this series and some might even be better written. But i just loved these characters. I can't say that about some of the other popular YA books.

    These characters are enjoyable, they like each other, they are good to each other and i just really liked them.

    Usually sisters in these books don't like each other and adults are made to seem like the enemy. But in this series there is genuine love, and I found that refreshing.

    The world of revenants is fascinating. This series is a good listen! And the narrator does a fabulous job.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Story

    This had good reviews and I started listening and enjoyed the funky characters. The author's writing style even had me laughing out loud in my car.

    And then all of the sudden, it turned into it soft porn and I was so disappointed.

    I was getting into the story and it had so much promise. I was really liking the characters.
    Why did it have to be wrecked with the overly descriptive sex scenes?

    I guess some people are into that, and that's fine. I just wish it wasn't part of this book. I can't even continue it and I would've liked to.

    The author is talented and her characters are enjoyable. The narrator did a good job too.

    If anyone knows of a PG13 version, let me know.

    Story

    I found this story very enjoyable and the narrator was terrific. It was a fun story with some very interesting twists and I would definitely recommend it. There were a few holes (of course they'd teach an assassin to fight in dress clothes), but they were minor and not too distracting. I will definitely be reading the sequels.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    this was a lot of fun. it's set apart (at least a little) from the other star-crossed vampire-ish love stories by the quality and depth of the history and literary insight. I loved the house's personality. I almost think it is my favorite character, aside from Diana.

    and seriously, this narrator is fantastic!!!!!!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    this was a really enjoyable story. it kept me on the edge of my seat. i was a little distracted by some of the random cursing. it just seemed unnecessary. but aside from that, I liked this and look forward to other books by this author. the narrator was fabulous.

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.

    Story

    The subject matter made me so upset: kids being mean to kids, races being mean to different races, prejudice, misconceptions. But the author wrote about it all so very well. His style is fantastic.

    So, even though I was troubled at times, it was still a terrific book. And I would recommend it to others.

    On top of that, the narrator was outstanding!

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    This book seemed like a movie, in a way. It was written well -- good dialog, vocabulary, and the like. But the plot was just very movie like. I guess that's not a bad thing.

    The narrator was outstanding!!!

    Overall, I think it was entertaining, if a tad long.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This was an absolutely terrific book. I fully enjoyed it. My only complaint was that it seemed to end too abruptly. I loved the characters and I loved the narrators. I strongly and wholeheartedly recommend this book!

    I really enjoyed this story. It's well read and well written. Coriander is a fabulous character. I was very entertained and looked forward to my commute (where I listen to all of my audio books).
