    Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

    Terry A. Austin says: "Another brilliant Pratchett"
    "Great story. Terrible audio quality"
    Overall

    The audio quality was so terrible that is sounded like it was being read over the phone long distance from a cement holding cell "across the pond." I made it through the whole book, as painful as it was, which says something about the wonderful story telling of Mr. Pratchett. The "Tiffany"/childrens stories (?) series were much better and I've yet to find others in the Discworld series that can compare. Crrrivens!

    In the fifth installment of this bestselling series, the twins of prophesy have been divided, and the end is finally beginning.
    With Scatty, Joan of Arc, Saint Germain, Palamedes, and Shakespeare all in Danu Talis, Sophie is on her own with the ever-weakening Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel. She must depend on Niten to help her find an immortal to teach her Earth Magic. The surprise is that she will find her teacher in the most ordinary of places.

    G. House Sr. says: "Cliff Hanger -- Batter Up for Book 6"
    "Engrossing Series"
    Overall

    This series caught me by surprise with it's interesting characters mingled with mythology and ongoing action, creating a world it's easy to get caught up in. I found one of the characters particularly annoying but not enough to quit listening, as I gobbled up all the stories in the series and was dismayed when I ran out. Eagerly awaiting book 6 and trying to find (unsuccessfully) equally engrossing audiobooks to get me by in the meantime.

    Story
    (1697)

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "cookbook? AAA travelbook?"
    Overall

    This book sounded so promising but I was hugely disappointed with it. If the author could have stuck to the subject it may have been sloggable but his tangents on exactly the what they ate for every meal and who got what portion made me feel as though I was on the food channel. And, worse yet, was the turn-by-turn GPS-ish navigational narrative. I thought this was an in-depth spiritual book but it was impossible to take seriously at all. The publisher's review/summary was extremely misleading.Such a potent subject and such a drivel of narrative.

    Story
    (5907)

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Daniel says: "Finally! The unabridged version is here!"
    "incompatable"
    Overall

    I love this author and the series -- on paper-- but I was more than disappointed with the audio version. I felt a good book was ruined because of my own issues. I couldn't stand to listen to the narrator's prissy voice and her crisp accent. It just wasn't the voice I had given the characters when I read the first book and so they were incompatable and unbelievable to me. I tried, but I just couldn't stand to listen to more than an hour of it. It was like nails on a chalkboard.
    Some may find her voice enchanting, as this is strictly subjective.
