    It is the summer of 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is 14. On break from boarding school, he is staying with eccentric strangers—his uncle and aunt—in their vast house in Hampshire. When two local people die from symptoms that resemble the plague, Holmes begins to investigate what really killed them, helped by his new tutor, an American named Amyus Crowe. So begins Sherlock’s true education in detection, as he discovers the dastardly crimes of a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent.

    I was disappointed with this book. I was expecting something else I think. Perhaps getting more into the mind of the young Sherlock to explain why he thought the way he did and detailing his thought processes as he solved his first mystery.

    Popular author Daniel Abraham’s works have been nominated for the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award. In The Dragon’s Path, former soldier Marcus is now a mercenary—but he wants nothing to do with the coming war. So instead of fighting, he elects to guard a caravan carrying the wealth of a nation out of the war zone—with the assistance of an unusual orphan girl named Cithrin.

    What didn’t you like about Pete Bradbury’s performance?

    Pete Bradbury's voice is too gravelly. I found it very unpleasant to listen to. I didn't listen to the sample but this taught me to listen to the sample audio before I buy another audio book.

    Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    No.


    What was most disappointing about Robyn Carr’s story?

    The heroine was irritating. In the beginning of the book all she did was whine.


    What didn’t you like about Therese Plummer’s performance?

    I didn't like her voice and I thought she read the story too slowly.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed in the story and didn't like Mel. Too whiney, too wimpy, too middle class. She buys and wears designer jeans and shoes. She drives a BMW. She yells

  • Curse of the Blue Tattoo: Bloody Jack #2

    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    If you could sum up Curse of the Blue Tattoo in three words, what would they be?

    Great adventure story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Curse of the Blue Tattoo?

    When Jacky was riding the Shiek.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Kellgren has a great voice, speaking as well as singing. She does a great cockney accent and when she sings the songs that Jacky performs, the audio book adds so much to the experience of listening to the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot while listening to this book on my iPod. I walked around grinning like the village idiot.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series. Jacky Faber is an amazing heroine and the only way to experience the books are by listening on audio.

    Set against the gorgeous backdrop of Rome, Tom Rachman’s wry, vibrant debut follows the topsy-turvy private lives of the reporters, editors, and executives of an international English-language newspaper as they struggle to keep it - and themselves - afloat. This hilarious and poignant look at the struggles of print news will establish Rachman as one of the 21st century’s most perceptive talents.

    I didn't like any of the characters in this book. I enjoy quirky people, but these folks were mostly downright unhappy and dysfuntional because of who they were. I read and heard favorable reviews so I had high expectations which sadly were not met.

    On a quest to find her sister's killer, Mac is a major player in a deadly game, but with one great advantage: she knows how to find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient book of magic so dark it corrupts anyone who touches it. What Mac soon discovers is worse than she had imagined. Surrounded by treachery, her enemies indistinguishable from her allies, she can be certain of only one thing: as All Hallows' Eve approaches, her time is running out.

    The woman's voice drove me crazy. Toooooo Southern. The story isn't bad, but I found the voice irritating to the point where I could not enjoy the story.

    Ignoring her insistent best friend, some interfering do-gooders, and the ubiquitous dog Fred - not to mention her suddenly raging hormones - 40-year-old Nina thinks anyone but Alex would be a better bet for a relationship. But the more silver-haired stiffs she dates, the more she suspects it's the young dog-loving doctor she wants to sit and stay!

    Not one of Jennifer Crusie's best. Rather formulaic. She can write much better. I'm glad I've read some of her other books, otherwise, I wouldn't bother reading her other books.
