    A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens's most exciting novels. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, it tells the story of a family threatened by the terrible events of the past. Doctor Manette was wrongly imprisoned in the Bastille for 18 years without trial by the aristocratic authorities.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not much.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Charles Dickens again?

    Only if the price was right, free.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Sounded like the women's voices was a man.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Tale of Two Cities?

    90%


    Any additional comments?

    yeah, I guess the classics are ones we like to say we have read but really don't enjoy reading them. Took me forever to even figure out what the story was about, if I even did.

    Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks.

    Luke Jensen, Bounty Hunter is the first in an exciting new series starring Smoke's long-lost brother. During the Civil War, Confederate soldier Luke Jensen is ordered to smuggle gold out of the city - but he ends up robbed and shot. Taken in by a Georgia farmer, Luke slowly recovers. Though he plans to rejoin Smoke, a budding romance with the farmer's daughter delays his departure - until a tragic event changes everything.

    James says: "Pretty good and not as predictable as Louis Lamour"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Luke Jensen, Bounty Hunter to be better than the print version?

    Yes, like the voices associated with the reading but do like to read and listen at same time.


    What other book might you compare Luke Jensen, Bounty Hunter to and why?

    don't have one.


    What does Jack Garrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Just a little more drama I guess.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe use multiple readers, especially a woman's voice for a woman's line.
