    Kim's life takes a curious twist when he meets a holy man, a lama, who is about to embark on a mysterious quest: a pilgrimage that will take him across the vast continent, across rivers and up the Himalayas. And he wants Kim to accompany him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Kim to be better than the print version?

    I first met Kim at High School. It was a setbook for our English Literature class. That was over 60 years ago!! I have carried that book around the world with me - I travel quite a lot - and read it on planes and trains. Sometime ago I found out about a version on DVD, which I purchased. Now I have it for my computer and MP3 player (which I listen to on my treadmill) and I am still listening to it. Mr Kipling encapsulated the essence of the time in History and where it took place to perfection. Thanks for the audible version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kim?

    When he gets acquainted with Llama.


    Have you listened to any of Sam Dastor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have never listened to any other Sam Dastor performances to my knowledge.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is the kind of book which must be listened to in its separate parts. However, if the occasion arose, it could well be listened to all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Do some more audio books like this please.

  • Bony and the Black Virgin: An Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte Mystery

    Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte is called to the drought-stricken outback for this, his latest case. At a desolate sheep station, two men have been savagely beaten to death, and it's Bony's job to make an arrest. This isn't an easy case, since clues are scarce in this sun-baked, sand-blown country, but Bony's understanding of the bush and the people who live there – both black and white – leads him inexorably to the killer.

    It is 1953 in a small country town in Australia, a time of post-war prosperity and hope. The Holtens are wealthy austere graziers who have lived on the land for generations. The McBrides are a large and loving shearers family who are new arrivals to the district. When the McBrides eldest daughter falls in love with the Holtens only son and heir, the barriers to their love seem overwhelming. But in the end, their love triumphs even over tragedy and hope and joy are their enduring legacy.

    I thoroughly enjoy Di Morrissey as an authoress - her stories are descriptive and human oriented. It is satisfying to read material which is enjoyable and not strewn with sex and mayhem.

    A valley, nestled between rugged peaks, is divided by a magnificent river - and within its peaceful green contours are held the secrets of generations of tribes, families, and loners who have come under its spell.
