    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    "Great narration, story a bit much"
    Overall

    The two narrators for this book did a terrific job. As an adult listener, I found the plot a bit confusing with too much action and too many characters for me to keep track of. My 11-year old son didn't have those problems though, and as he is the target audience, I give the book high marks.

    Penguin Classics presents the audiobook adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated classic, David Copperfield, read by Nathaniel Parker.Humorous, dramatic, ironic and tender, David Copperfield has always been one of Dickens's most popular novels.

    Overall

    I love Nathaniel Parker as a narrator, and that was the main reason I ordered this book. I didn't even notice that it said abridged below the title. Big mistake. I thought the book seemed awfully disjointed and was relieved to see that it wasn't Dickens but the abridgment to blame. My fault for not noticing, but really Nathaniel Parker's narration made it almost worth it.

    Few works of literature are as universally beloved as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Now, in this spellbinding historical novel, we meet the young girl whose bright spirit sent her on an unforgettable trip down the rabbit holeand the grown woman whose story is no less enthralling.

    Overall

    This is a wonderful book that is brilliantly narrated and well worth listening to. However, for some reason the audible edition does not include the author's note at the end, which apparently describes her process of combining fact and fiction and would have been very interesting. Not sure how they can call it an unabridged version when they omit that.
