    Story

    There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

    someone got a clue! fabulous, perfect narrator, now please: the silmarillion, the ring "trilogy" and the whole tolkein corpus, unabridged and with narration of this quality, should mr. lee prove unavailable for the enirety of such a mammoth project. how can no one have done this yet?!

    Wealthy and old, Martin Chuzzlewit, Sr. is surrounded by greedy relatives hoping to obtain a portion of his estate upon his death. Of his two descendants, born and bred in the same heritage of selfishness, one, Martin Jr., has the good fortune to transform, while the other, Jonas, does not and receives a fatal penalty.

    Joseph says: "A favorite Dickens"
    "horrible"
    Overall

    i struggled through this thing for just an hour before giving up in disgust because of the untolerable narrator! his simpering females are not only insulting, they are unlistenable. gah! i wish i'd heard a better sample. i'm working my way through all if the dickenses but this one is just not possible. such a waste!

    Story

    Critically acclaimed and best-selling crime writer James Lee Burke returns to Louisiana where his ever-popular hero, Dave Robicheaux, sleuths his way through a hotbed of sin and uncertainty.

    Suzn F says: "Another delicious book from JLB"
    "wrong narrator!"
    Overall

    I love hearing the Burke books and want more and more unabridged. I've listened to them exclusively for the past couple of months, including on a trip to New Orleans. So imagine my dismay when the voices I was so used to, of which I craved more, disappeared and were replaced by this limp, beat poet reading. No fair! I wish I'd checked the narrator before I bought it, I just assumed it would be Mark Hammer. What a disappointment!
