    Jane Eyre, a young orphan, leads a lonely life at a boarding school until she's old enough to take a job as a governess for the wealthy and mysterious Mr. Rochester. Over time, she falls in love with her stern employer, but happiness still eludes her - even on her wedding day. What is the mad secret Rochester is hiding?

    "A Genuine Masterpiece"
    Overall

    This book is a genuine 19th century masterpiece. Charlotte Bronte's tale of this young woman's life journey reached out to me across the centuries and touched me deeply. Flo Gibson is a talented narrator with perfect annunciation. However, she reads at a very fast clip, so I often found it challenging to keep pace with her. The quality of the recording seemed a bit grainy, too; I found it helpful to check out the book from the local library and follow along in print to gain full comprehension of the text.

    Hard-boiled detective Sam Spade is hired to locate a client's sister by tailing the sister's companion. Spade's partner Miles Archer takes on the assignment, and quickly both Archer and the man he was shadowing are murdered. As Spade pursues the mystery of his partner's death, he is drawn into a circle of colorful characters, and they are all after a legendary statuette of a falcon that had long ago been made for King Charles of Spain. Encrusted with jewels, it is worth a fortune.

    "The Classic Detective Mystery"
    Overall

    This classic 1930's detective mystery was a great read from start to finish! Colorful characters, crisp dialogue, an intriguing plot, and superb narration -- it all adds up to over seven hours of sheer pleasure. You will find yourself wisked away to the foggy streets of 1930's San Francisco and loving every moment of it!
