  • Never Let Me Go

    From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.

    Christopher says: "Moving, haunting, but slow developing"
    "Really, really boring"
    Overall

    This is not what I expected. Cloning? Really. Maybe if you're a lady you can relate to the author, but not me. Even the climax of the story is like climbing a hill 1 ft tall. Oh, I guess this is it, I said? Really slow. Men, listen elsewhere.

    Typical Sparks story - simple plot line, but sweet. However, the narrator has to go. Worst Sparks narration I've ever heard.

    Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

    M. Chinander says: "Wow"
    "Decent story, poorly read."

    Story

    This is not one of Sparks best stories in my opinion. It was mostly predictable and slow moving. However, the narrator made it nearly unbearable for me with his "southern" accents. He read it too slowly and I didn't like the narrator's choice of voices for the main characters.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    I was a bit leery of this one at first but am glad I listened. A beautiful story of brave people during a tumultuous time in our history. Very well written and very well narrated. Another fav added to my list! You will enjoy it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    FanB14 says: "Artful Surprise"
    "If dogs could speak!"
    Overall

    This was an enjoyable read for the most part. I got discouraged at the injustice being described for awhile until I figured out how Denny would handle it and I was correct. The ending made it worth the wait. The insights of Enzo we're hillarious and intriguing. I don't fall for the reincarnation stuff, but hey, it's fiction! If you use your imagination - it works.

    Very well written and the narration is great also. Another favorite!

    Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure.

    Prsilla says: "Really-REALLY Classic!"
    "A wonderful classic"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this lengthy but beautiful story of Edmund Dantes. The narration was some of the best I've heard. It is very long, with only a couple of times thinking that Dumas was just stretching the text, but most of the time I enjoyed the detours into details and side stories that eventually, ended up being folded into the plot in very ingenious ways. This one has made it to my favorite list and I highly recommend it!
