    It is 1502, and seven-year-old Bianca de Nevada lives at Montefiore, the farm of her father, Don Vicente. But one day a noble entourage makes its way up to the farm. In the presence of Cesare Borgia and his sister, the lovely and vain Lucrezia, no one can claim innocence for very long. When Borgia sends Don Vicente on a quest, he leaves Bianca under the care of Lucrezia. She plots a dire fate for the young girl in the woods below the farm, but salvation can be found in the dark forest as well.

    Would you listen to Mirror Mirror again? Why?

    probably not...I didn't find it that interesting and don't feel like i missed anything a 2nd listen would clarify.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gregory Maguire? Why or why not?

    maybe. wicked was excellent, but sometimes the odd sex references (which serve little purpose in the story) turn me off...


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    the queen


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no

  • Louis L'Amour Collection

    More than any other writer before or since, Louis L'Amour brought the American West to life. His action-packed stories deal with eternal themes: honor, deceit, passion, betrayal, loyalty, courage, love. His settings are historically accurate, his prose riveting, and his characters colorful: good guys, bad buys, toughs, roughs, sidekicks and saints.

    "extra voices, sound effects..."

    What made the experience of listening to Louis L'Amour Collection the most enjoyable?

    short review from me...
    this was just an entertaining read. Loved the cameos (though they are only in first story) and the sound effects (horses, gunshots, etc) as they make all westerns more fun. I'd listen to another like this!
