    On doctor's orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Bertie's horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and 'moulder of men', and Orlo Porter, who seems to have nothing else to do but to think of sundering Bertie's head from his body.

    I am hooked on these P.G. Wodehouse titles, and this one is very light and entertaining, as anticipated. Wonderful narration!

    Great Expectations is a novel by Charles Dickens, first serialised in All the Year Round from December 1860 to August 1861. The action of the story takes place from Christmas Eve 1812, when the protagonist is about seven years old, to the winter of 1840. Great Expectations is written in a semi-autobiographical style, and is the story of the orphan Pip, tracing his life from his early days of childhood until adulthood.

    Charla says: "Great novel, troubles in narration"
    "Great novel, troubles in narration"
    Overall

    This is another great novel and I highly recommend reading it, but it may be best to consider another narration. Although the voices were done well, if inconsistently, the sentences were not read with appropriate diction. This ensured the listener must apply great effort in order to comprehend the reading. Additionally, the last sentence is not clear, spoiling the end of the novel.

    One day in 1957, in the third-grade classroom of St. Brigid's parochial school, an exasperated Sister Mary Lurana bent over a restless young William O'Reilly and said, "William, you are a bold, fresh piece of humanity." Little did she know that she was, early in his career as a troublemaker, defining the essence of Bill O'Reilly and providing him with the title of his brash and entertaining issues-based memoir.

    James says: "Avid Reader Explains Bold Fresh is a must Listen"
    "Entertaining!"
    Overall

    This is primarily recollections, only lightly touching on controversial issues of today. It is light and fun and very entertainingly read by the author. Worth your time and money if you enjoy the "bold fresh" gentleman.

    There are at least 68 million dogs in America, and their owners lavish billions of dollars on them every year. So why do so many pampered pets have problems? In this definitive and accessible guide, Cesar Millan, star of National Geographic Channel's hit show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan, reveals what dogs truly need to live a happy and fulfilled life.

    Michelle says: "Excellent Narration"
    "Entertaining memories, but no substance."
    Overall

    This seems to be a name dropping drill to prove how all of Hollywood has embraced Ceasar. Good for you. What I was hoping for was a little information on dogs.

    I was very turned off by the comments regarding coming to this country illegally, "and proud of it".

    I am sorry I spent the money on this book.

    An old favorite as you've never seen it before! Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse - but who's ever heard what's going on inside the old lady's stomach?

    In a sleepy little New England village stands a dark, weather-beaten, many-gabled house. This brooding mansion is haunted by a centuries-old curse that casts the shadow of ancestral sin upon the last four members of the distinctive Pyncheon family of Salem.

    Love Hawthorne. Great narration.

    Rip Van Winkle lives in a nice village at the foot of New York's Catskill Mountains. One autumn day he escapes his nagging wife by wandering up the mountains. After encountering strangely dressed men, rumored to be the ghosts of Henry Hudson's crew, who are playing nine-pins, and after drinking some of their liquor, he settles down under a shady tree and falls asleep. He wakes up 20 years later and returns to his village.

    The archdeacon of Notre Dame, Claude Frollo, falls in lust with Esmerelda, a gypsy dancer who is much admired in Paris. At his instruction, Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell-ringer of Notre Dame who he has befriended, kidnaps her. Esmerelda is rescued by Phoebus de Chateaupers (Captain of the Royal Archers) and she falls mistakenly in love with his bravery when he is, in reality, something of a rogue and a braggart.
