    Story
    (526)

    When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton. Even more challenging: the attraction she feels for the tall, dark, and dangerously handsome Cam Rohan.

    Story
    Would you listen to Mine Till Midnight again? Why?

    A good story, interesting likable characters, and a very talented reader.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters. Although I knew it would have a happy ending, I was curious to see how they would make it happen. Also interesting side stories.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    She had a distinct voice for each character and does the male voices very well, which can be a problem for some readers.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite audiobook so far. I will be downloading the rest of the books in this series as long as they are read by Ms. Landor.

  • Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data

    From batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical research, the real-world application of statistics continues to grow by leaps and bounds. How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized tests? How does Netflix know which movies you'll like? What is causing the rising incidence of autism? As best-selling author Charles Wheelan shows us in Naked Statistics, the right data and a few well-chosen statistical tools can help us answer these questions and more.

    Story

    I got this audiobook on sale because I figured it would be educational and I wanted to brush up on my statistics. I assumed it would have a slow pace and monotone narration.. I was wrong. It is unexpectedly interesting with great real-world examples and an excellent narrator. It occasionally gets bogged down (the bus and body weight metaphor in particular) but this is rare.

    It is a gem: a book which is both entertaining and informative. It could serve as a primer for anyone interested in learning how statistics work in the real world.

    Story

    Against the scandal and seduction of Regency England, New York Times best-selling author Mary Balogh introduces an extraordinary family - the fiery, sensual Huxtables. Vanessa is the second daughter, proud and daring, a young widow who has her own reason for pursuing the most eligible bachelor in London. One that has nothing to do with love. Or does it?

    "Unlikable hero and slow pacing"

    Story

    I normally like Mary Balogh, but this book disappointed me. I found the hero to be self-centered and dull, but kept hoping he would improve as the book went forward. Unfortunately, that did not happen. The heroine, while somewhat more likable, was tedious. I was unable to see what these two saw in each other beyond convenience.

    Anne Flosnik's narration seemed unusually formal and stiff, but perhaps she was taking her cue from the humorless tone of the book. I normally don't have a problem with her performance.
