  • A Tale of Two Cities

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 18 mins)

    Story

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"; "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known"; so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken's best-known words, and between the two is every Briton's view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.

    K. Hicks says: "A Rediscovery of an Old Friend"
    "Very well portrayed"
    Overall

    An excellent version of this classic tale. The voice is extremely clear and effectively portrays the numerous characters in the book - to the point that, even if you can't remember their names, you recognise them by the reader's tone.

    A thriller about a rookie lawyer defending a member of the Klu Klux Klan who has been on Death Row for 23 years and faces the gas chamber. The lawyer hates his client's racist views, but as the case develops, it appears that his client may be innocent.

    Andrew says: "Another great story by Grisham"
    "Great start for new Grisham reader"
    Overall

    This story was wonderful to the very end. It is the first Grisham novel that I have read and gave it a go to decide whether I'd "read" any others. Great story and hours of enjoyment.

    Story
    (1610)

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Swad says: "Still Good"
    "Great tome"
    Overall

    Wow! What a SPOOKY voice telling this story. People kept laughing whenever I demonstrated my Audible book! Great story from King - quite "believable" right to the end and I like that in a book!

  • While I Live: The Ellie Chronicles

    Story

    The town of Wirrawee is emerging from war, slowly, like a flower after a cold snap. Businesses are starting to reopen, the school has re-commenced classes, and local farmers are gradually repossessing their land. But it's not the same Australia as before the war. A new nation exists just a few miles away, a new border that separates Australia from its invaders. Or does it?

    Bev says: "Strength"
    "You DO get used to the lisp!"
    Overall

    My first concern when listening to this recording was that I would have to cope with a difficult accent, made worse by the unclear diction and lisp. However, it took no time to get used to and I even believe that Ellie speaks like that now!

    Classic Marsden - great story and I'm looking forward to hearing the next one.
