    Story
    (4948)

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Greg says: "This Series Rocks"
    "Better than reading the book"
    Overall

    Overall this was an enjoyable experience and I have continued with the Wheel of Time series by audiobook. I have always struggled to read Robert Jordan as I find him a little wordy but the books are easier to listen to than to read. I find them excellent to listen to while walking or while doing housework.

  • Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 25 mins)

    Story
    (88)

    Using a travel guide format, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee acts as tour guide extraordinaire, describing and critiquing every aspect of this territory she knows so well: its people (young and old, male and female), familiar phrases ("purl this, darn that"), strange beliefs, currency (skein trading), etiquette, holidays (any sale day at the local yarn shop), and customs. She notes important dates in knitting history and celebrates unsung knitting heroes.

    Emily says: "a fun read"
    "Excellent and witty"
    Overall

    I love hearing Stephanie read her own books. She is a witty, intelligent writer and it is a real treat to hear her read the words with the pauses and inflections she intended when she was writing them.

    The book itself is very enjoyable and full of the expected knitterly humour. I have listened to this book several times.

    I can't wait for more of Stephanie's books to become available by audiobook.

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    Alan says: "Great Saga"
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I have read the previous two books in the series and decided to get the audiobook to stretch out the experience of enjoying these books (I devoured the paperbacks in a very short few hours).

    I enjoyed the narrator's rendition. I also enjoyed the plot of this book just as much as I enjoyed the previous two. Stephanie's writing is compelling.

    One small quibble with the quality of the audio. Around 3 times in the 16 hours of listening it behaved as if the record had got stuck. It may just have been my copy - a glitch in the download. It didn't spoil the overall experience.
