    Daniel Pecan Cambridge, 30, 35, 38 or 27, depending on how he feels that day, is a young man whose life is rich and full, provided he never leaves his Santa Monica apartment. After all, outside there are 8-inch-high curbs and there's always the horrible chance he might see a gas station attendant wearing a blue hat. So, except for the occasional trip to the Rite Aid to admire the California girl Zandy and to buy earplugs because they're on sale, he stays home a lot. And good thing, too.

    Overall

    Steve Martin is definitely funny and brilliant, but this book wavers between that and being a bit boring. I expected him to be a better reader, but on the other hand, I can't really imagine anyone I would have rather read this, since it is "so Him". The story did get a little slow towards the 2nd half, but I must say, I really liked the ending. And there were definitely moments of great poignancy (sp?) along with the humor. But I also felt like there are a lot of much more interesting books out there to read/listen to. How's that for a mixed review?

    This is a reading of three of the original books written by the Reverend W. Awdry that the TV series "Thomas the Tank Engine" was based on. The books are: Three Railway Engines, Thomas the Tank Engine, and James the Red Engine.

    "terrible music!"
    Overall

    The music is so cheesy. (I didn't realize it had songs, or I wouldn't have downloaded this one.)

    We love the original stories and illustrations--but do not like the commercialism associated with Thomas stories now. If you are like us, skip this one--the songs are terrible (and extemely annoying for adults).

    When the young orphan called Pip encounters the escaped convict Magwitch, the child's life is altered forever - in ways he cannot even imagine. In the course of his story, Pip encounters such memorable characters as the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward Estella - and a mysterious benefactor. This recording includes both of the endings Dickens wrote for this classic novel.

    Jerry says: "Why a classic is a classic"
    "Didn't like the reader--but a great story"
    Overall

    I found the narrator's voice to be both droning and fast--this was somewhat annoying. Dickens' story is, however, excellent and funny and timeless. I decided to stop listening (at about 1/2 way through) and read it instead. I like my own voice better.
