    When the young orphan called Pip encounters the escaped convict Magwitch, the child's life is altered forever - in ways he cannot even imagine. In the course of his story, Pip encounters such memorable characters as the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward Estella - and a mysterious benefactor. This recording includes both of the endings Dickens wrote for this classic novel.

    Jerry says: "Why a classic is a classic"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I'm sure this is a great book and would be very enjoyable were the narrator not rushing so quickly to get to the end. His rapidspeak is tedious to listen to and not at all enjoyable. The words fly by so quickly that you don't have time to absorb them.

    Master of suspense James Patterson continues the Women's Murder Club series with this nail-biter of a sequel to 1st to Die. Four women - a police detective, an assistant D.A., a journalist, and a medical examiner - combine their efforts, risking everything, to catch a serial killer. "As with Patterson's best novels," Booklist says, "the surprises keep coming until the final pages."

    Jean says: "Painful pastime"

    Overall

    If this was a decent novel to begin with, the narration ensured that I would ever know. The whiny voice, exaggerated diction and overemphasis without relevance to the action distracted from the text and made listening a painful process, like a finger nail on a chalkboard.
