    Orphan Rossamünd Bookchild has been sworn into the Emperor's service - his duty is to light the lamps along the Emperor's highways and protect travelers from the ferocious bogles that live in the wild. When a haughty young girl, a member of a suspiciously regarded society of all-women monster hunters is forced upon the lamplighters for training, Rossamünd is no longer the most despised soul around.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story

    I'm not sure why this book had the great reviews -Marketing promotion I guess. I listened to the entire book- but found every character to be depressing. And the fact that I agreed with some of the characters thoughts - had me depressed with myself. The narrator was excellent, great variation between characters, clear and easy to understand.

    Story
    (244)

    When Redwall was published in 1987 it catapulted author Brian Jacques to international stardom. And small wonder! This enthralling tale is jam-packed with the things we long for in a great adventure: danger, laughter, hairbreadth escapes, tragedy, mystery, a touch of wonder, a truly despicable villain, and a hero we can take to heart.

    David says: "Two paws up from an initially skeptical listener"
    "Completely wonderful"
    Overall

    Granted this is a child's book - but I found it thoroughly engaging to listen to as I drove to/from work.

    On November 7, 1974, a young English nanny named Sandra Rivett was murdered in London's West End. Her employer, Lord Lucan, was named as her attacker. It was widely assumed he had mistaken her for his wife. Lord Lucan disappeared the night Sandra Rivett died and has not been seen since. Henry Kennedy lives on a mountain on the other side of the world. He is not who he says he is. Is he a murderer, or a man who can never clear his name? And is he the only one with something to hide?

    Overall

    I love Humphrey Bower as a narrator and as usual he made this story come alive. While it made me cry - I was facinated by the story.

    A powerful epic novel in the spirit of The Godfather and On the Waterfront, Narrows Gate follows the lives of three men as they clash with the dangerous and seductive environment of a Mob-riddled New Jersey waterfront town before, during, and after World War II.

    James says: "Great fun!"
    "Engaging"
    Overall

    I agree with some of the comments from previous reviewers that occassionally the Italian voices were difficult to hear or understand. But they were in character and it wasn't difficult to figure out what they were saying. The story was well written and kept me engaged throughout the story.

    A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming, a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Columbia, a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war.... NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control.

    Pamela says: "Good action but...."
    "Good action but...."
    Overall

    The action was excellent, but obviously the Cusslers are proponents of Global Warming and too much time was taken up with their professorial instruction about GW. The book could have come to a satisfying end several times- but instead dragged on considerably to "preach" and then ended with the girl & the guy going off into the sunset. Ho hum.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "The ending left me wanting more"
    Overall

    After listening for hours to all the detail of the story, which I enjoyed- I found the ending abrupt and unfulfilling.

    Rossamnd Bookchild stands accused of not truly being a human at all, but of being a monster. Even the protection of Europe, the Branden Rose the most feared and renowned monster-hunter in all the Half-Continent might not be enough to save him. Powerful forces move against them both, intent on capturing Rossamnd whose existence some believe may hold the secret to perpetual youth.

    Gayle says: "A Page-Turning Tale!"
    "Please tell me there's more after this!!!"
    Overall

    Excellent and well worth the wait - but please tell me there'll be more to follow! I want to know what happens after this stage of life for our little Foundling. I would rank this series of stories right up there with Harry Potter - totally engrossing and completely unique.
