    "One day when Pooh Bear had nothing else to do, he thought he would do something, so he went round to Piglet's house to see what Piglet was doing." Thus begins The House At Pooh Corner, A.A. Milne's wonderful companion volume to Winnie-the-Pooh. You will rediscover Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore, and all their friends, and be introduced to the irrepressible and very bouncy Tigger.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Snorting or what ever you call that sound the narrator does every time Piglet speaks. I actually only managed to listen to ten minutes and had to stop listening. Shame since I love the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see this reread by another narrator or even the same one if he would eliminate those annoying sounds. The background noises are unnecessary as well. I cannot comment on any other character voices aside from Pooh since I did not listen to very much.

    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....

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

    definately! Davina brings the story to life more than I could.


    Any additional comments?

    In my opinion, Davina Porter is among the best of all the narrators... they include Katherine Kellgren, Roy Dotrice, and Jim Dale.

    Story
    (608)

    His memory is blank. He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues. A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium -- maybe code words. Initials: "J.B." And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne.

    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    First let me say, I love the cadence and tone of Scott Brick's narration. Aside from Scott Brick's use of a few different accents, I found this book a little hard to listen to due to the number of characters. Several times I had to rewind and re-listen just to understand which character was speaking due to the lack of distinction between some of the character voices - mainly the male characters that spoke American English without a foreign accent. I hate to give only 3 stars however because I still enjoy listening to Scott Brick and could not imagine this book being read by anyone else.

    In My Bonny Light Horseman, the infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew.Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is she's secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secrets--all to save her dear friends.

    What made the experience of listening to My Bonny Light Horseman the most enjoyable?

    Katherine Kellgren's portrayal of the characters and her ability to infuse the story with such enthusiastic life. Very few narrators I have listened to perform to her level.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fantastical situations the lead character finds herself in and her realistic responses to them.


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

    I have a vivid imagination when I read a good book and often come close to forgetting I am just reading a story, but, listening to Katherine does makes me forget I am listening to a book being read.
