    Based in part on Dickens's own life, it is the story of a young man's journey from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist. Among its gloriously vivid cast of characters, he e.ncounters his tyrannical stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; the frivolous, enchanting Dora; and one of literature's great comic creations, the magnificently impecunious Mr. Micawber.

    Overall

    The book is a classic and the reading is truly inspiring. Simon Vance truly has a gift. But maybe Audible should let customers into a little secret: Simon Vance IS Robert Whitfield; and Richard Matthews and John Richmond. He has used different names for the different publishing houses he has worked. Whitfield was his chosen name while working for Blackstones. So, it's funny to see him competing with himself among the reviews. They are all very good versions.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?

    It was by far the worst book of the series. The storyline was so full of cliches and unimaginative that was painful. It would had been better if the author had closed the series on book 12. The best thing about the Sookie Stahouse series was the marriage of the mundane and the fantastical and it was always a pleasure to delve into the lore Charlene Harris was creating. And that is exactly what is missing from the last book: no magic, no fantasy. It's a sloppy romantic knot to a very creative series, from an author that is maybe tired of the universe she created.
