    Story
    (174)

    An unidentified nude female sits propped against a fountain in Central Park. There are no signs of struggle. When Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her colleagues Benton Wesley and Pete Marino arrive on the scene, they instantly recognize the signature of serial killer Temple Brooks Gault. Scarpetta, on assignment with the FBI, visits the New York City morgue on Christmas morning, where she must use her forensic expertise to give a name to the nameless - a difficult task. But as she sorts through conflicting forensic clues, Gault claims his next victim.

    "I love her books - but the reader was not good"
    Overall

    I have read (paperback) several Scarpetta novels - and have always enjoyed them - but this narrator just ruined it for me. Monotone, monotone, monotone - get the idea. I didn't even finish it...waste of money

    Much has been written about Thomas Jefferson, with good reason: His life was a great American drama, one of the greatest, played out in compelling acts. He was the architect of our democracy, a visionary chief executive who expanded this nation's physical boundaries to unimagined lengths.

    "Twilight at Monticello"
    Overall

    I don't know if it is the reader....or the subject matter....but this was the dullest book I have ever downloaded. All the interesting and tittalating things about Jefferson were completely glossed (or should I say dronned) over.
    In a word....boring.

  • Outlander

    • UNABRIDGED (33 hrs and 8 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Sara says: "The Time Travel VS Romance Quandary"
    "Good Listen"
    Overall

    I did enjoy this story - although it did go on a bit long and she tends to repeat a lot. And the whole scenerio of time-travel back in history was totally unnecessary - it would have been just as readable without that bit of science fiction.

    But overall, its a steamy, sexy, fun listen.
