    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Would you listen to Water for Elephants again? Why?

    I have actually thought this very thought. the way the writer set up the story, it enables you to process why his characters do what they do. it was very well written and read.


    Which character – as performed by David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones – was your favorite?

    I loved the main character as his old self; he still had that spark for life that we do not see in many older characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when the writer wanted me to cry; I laughed out loud way too many times . it was a well written story.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Story
    (6408)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    What did you love best about The Pillars of the Earth?

    I really like books where I can see the knowledge of the writer. He knew time period history, medieval society, and architecture. it made it a pleasure to read


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved them all . this would not have been as good of a story if they weren't all there.


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

    I do not have much time to read . audio books help me experience what I'd miss otherwise . Mr. Lee was a delight.


    If you could take any character from The Pillars of the Earth out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Jonathan. He grew up knowing what it was to be loved completely . He was so brave and willing to seek answers, even though they were difficult.


    Any additional comments?

    So far this has been my favorite of all the books I' 've listened to. The sound is not shrill and Mr. Lee has a voice that is easy to listen to.
