  • Stoneheart: The Stoneheart Trilogy, Book One

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 39 mins)
    • By Charlie Fletcher
    • Narrated By Jim Dale
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. A 12-year-old boy named George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. On a school trip he's punished for something he didn't do. In a tiny act of rebellion, he lashes out at a small carving on the wall - unexpectedly breaking it off. And then something horrible does happen: a stone pterodactyl unpeels form the wall and starts chasing him. George is already running before his mind starts trying to tell him that this is impossible!

    "Fantastic Story, Great Narrator!"

    I will admit that I bought this mainly because Jim Dale was narrating and I'd enjoyed him so much with the Harry Potter books. This story, though, is beautifully written and well-plotted. The characters are well-developed in the best way: you're shown who they are via their actions rather than told. The mythology of this "other London" is realistic in the manner of the best fantasy books. This is a great tale for all ages. (And Jim Dale, as usual, does a bang up job with the voices -- he had me laughing aloud at The Dictionary.)

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    "Great book, expert narration!"

    I've long loved this book but Stephen Weber's narration adds something very special. Perfectly creepy and nostalgic, it's the perfect listen for a long road trip, as long as you don't mind becoming a bit suspicious of the folks you meet along the way.

  • Close to Home

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Lisa Jackson
    • Narrated By Joyce Bean

    Vowing to make a fresh start, Sarah McAdams has come home to renovate the old Victorian mansion where she grew up. Her daughters, Jade and Gracie, aren’t impressed by the rundown property on the shores of Oregon’s wild Columbia River. As soon as they pull up the isolated drive, Sarah, too, is beset by uneasy memories - of her cold, distant mother, of the half-sister who vanished without a trace, and of a long-ago night when Sarah was found on the widow’s walk, feverish and delirious.

    BookReader says: "Close to Home"
    "Enjoyable, engrossing listen"

    Nothing deep, just a nice mystery to pass the time. The only thing that took me out of the story was a bit of the teen dialogue that tried too hard. I appreciated that the romance part of the story was subtle and not a main focus.

  • The Twelfth Card: A Lincoln Rhyme Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Jeffery Deaver
    • Narrated By Dennis Boutsikaris
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Best-selling master of suspense Jeffery Deaver is back with a brand-new Lincoln Rhyme thriller. To save the life of a young girl who's being stalked by a ruthless hit man, Lincoln and his protege, Amelia Sachs, are called upon to do the impossible: solve a truly "cold case", one that's 140 years old.

    Orvetta says: "The Twelfth Card - Excellent"
    "I found it really entertaining!"

    This is only the 2nd review I've ever written, but when I read the negative comments, I just had to put in my two cents' worth. I found this a highly absorbing book to listen to. It isn't the best of his books, and I did anticipate most (but not all) of the plot twists. Even so, with my 3 hour near-daily commute, it kept me glued to my iPod each time I climbed in the car. I thought the narrator did a really nice job with the voices. For sheer entertainment, I felt this book was a really great value.

  • The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Robert Stanek

    After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

    Will says: "Excellent -- one of the best!"
    "I Don't Get the Hype."

    I love fantasy and fully expected to enjoy this book; however, I coudl barely listen to the end. It was just too much work to follow the plotlines in audio. I listened to the first hour of audio three different times to try and understand which character was which. And when the book finally got to the end, there was no resolution. It's so much of a serial that a single book doesn't finish any of the plotlines. The narrator was way too melodramatic and really annoyed me. His volume (as mentioned in another review) did get to be an issue for me as well. The whole experience was very frustrating.
