    In the ruins of a haunted medieval abbey, four musicians hope to tap into the site's dark history. The experience almost destroys them.

    What did you love best about December?

    I am a fan of Phil Rickman. The story is my kind of dark mysterious tale


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure this won't get posted. I'm still trying to finish the book .I finally had to buy the ebook for my Iphone so I could sort the story out. That worked well, until the syncing failed to work. I now have spent $20 and the ebook is wandering around out there (who knows where?) and I am pretty sure I will love this book if I can ever wade through it. BTW, I don't like your cook-book approach to reviewing.

    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

    Story

    My hearing isn't the best, and the whispers and other variations in volume made it maddeningly hard to follow. Disappointed. Have never had this problem before with many other books.
    I feel the reader tried too hard to be different characters. I missed crucial parts of the story because I couldn't hear. The whispers are nearly impossible when one wears hearing aids, as I do. Also, the male voices were not very convincing. I think it was a good story, but not sure because of missing so much.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    What did you love best about Matterhorn?

    This is a story that needs telling. I was reluctant to take on a morbid subject, but once I began listening, could hardly stop. I felt like I was there with them.


    Any additional comments?

    Bronson Pinchot was excellent. I'll look for his name and choose accordingly.
