    Story
    (214)

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Overall

    Having neither read the book nor heard the unabridged version I can only guess that either version is preferable to this shortened edition if only because of it's immense popularity. With that said, the six hour and 22 minute version will still entertain.

    History and fiction merge seamlessly in Tracy Chevalier's luminous novel about artistic vision and sensual awakening. Through the eyes of 16-year-old Griet, the world of 1660s Holland comes dazzlingly alive in this richly imagined portrait of the young woman who inspired one of Vermeer's most celebrated paintings.

    Amazon Customer says: "Enthralling Historical Fiction"
    "A wonderful journey"
    Overall

    Tracy Chevalier has written a wonderful book that richly portrays the artist's studio as well as an insightful look behind the scenes into the social strata of 17th century Delft. Wonderfully narrated by Jenna Lamia.

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "It's hard work and a long walk"
    Overall

    Mr. Bryson's voice provided an additional dimenmsion to this tale of hiking the A.T.
