    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    This book was good, but not as good as I thought it would be. Emma Galvin is amazing, though. I love her narration.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Story

    The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm are, hands down, some of the best fiction novels I've read (or, technically, listened to). The characters and the plot are intriguing and well-developed, and they make it impossible to stop reading. Robert Glenister makes the listening experience wonderful. Overall, these two books are the best audiobook purchases I've ever made, and as an avid listener, that's saying a lot.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    This story could have been done well, but instead, it was very disappointing. The main character is ridiculous. She has a Ph.D., and yet says idiotic things like, "Well, I'm not known for my common sense." Okay, I suppose it's possible for someone who's intelligent to lack common sense, but come on. A woman that smart acting so completely stupid? It's ridiculous. She's intelligent and self-reliant until she meets her vampire boyfriend, then she becomes a complete moron.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Night Circus to be better than the print version?

    While the audio version of this book is fantastic, it was a little difficult to follow all of the moving parts of the complex story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story is unique, original, and captivating. I was hooked from the very first scene.
