    For the first time we discover what really happened between his sister and the dastardly Wickham. How did he distract his friend Bingley from pining for his beloved Jane? Why did he propose to another young woman? Only to his diary does he tell his true story. At last we see Darcy as he really is; and, beneath his polite facade, we find a sensitive, private and passionate man.

    Story

    I neither liked the story nor enjoyed the narration. The characters and the dialogues are not as captivating as the original P&P. I have to admit that I have not yet been able to find a P&P follow-up that I liked. Therefore I do not read them anymore. But some of the reviews were so good with this one that I decided to give it a shot. But it wasn't any better.

    Druidry and Wicca are the two great streams of Western Pagan tradition. Both traditions are experiencing a renaissance all over the world, as more and more people seek a spirituality rooted in a love of nature and the land. Increasingly, listeners are combining the ideas of both traditions to craft their own spiritual practice. In this down-to-earth, inspiring guide, Philip Carr-Gomm offers a name for this Path that draws on the common beliefs and practices of Wicca and Druidry: DruidCraft.

    The story overall is so and so, as I had expected. But the narration is very very bad. Especially the male voices were the worst. The main male character's voice sounded like a cave man!

    Claire Doheney, recovering from a serious illness, agrees to house-sit an oceanfront mansion on Chappaquiddick Island in Martha's Vineyard. The New York book editor hopes to find solace, strength, and sufficient calm to finish a biography of the iconoclastic psychotherapist Wilhelm Reich. The last thing she expects to find is love. Then she meets a mysterious man the locals call the Hermit. No one knows his real name or where he lives. To their mutual surprise, they discover that they share a passion for cooking.

    Story

    It is yet another book out there which you do not gain or lose anything by reading or not reading it. On top of the weak plot, there are too many parts with food recipes, which some reviewers have mentioned as a plus, but if I wanted recipes, I would get a cook book.

    This brings me to the title of my review. Some parts of the book may be very disturbing for vegetarians and vegans. Especially those parts where the author explains in detail how lobsters and oysters are prepared were among the most disturbing parts for me.

    So vegetarians and vegans beware!

    Fans of New York Times best seller The Nanny Diaries will rejoice in this wickedly hilarious novel, which acclaimed author Katharine Weber says is "much funnier and darker". Optioned for a major motion picture starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Ivy Chronicles skewers the twisted priorities of America's well-heeled elite.

    Story

    It was an OK listen. The story of course was very shallow, however, that was what I expected to begin with. So it was good to listen to when doing house chores or working out at the gym. The narrator was generally fine too. I think her voice was a very good match for Ivy's character. However, quite often she swallowed hard and the sound of it annoyed me throughout the book! I have listened to so many books before and I never noticed such an issue with any of them!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    As far as books of this genre go, the erotic scenes were embedded in the whole story and were done well.

    However, in gereneral, the writing quality of the book is quite poor. There are too many unnecessary repetitions that irritate the reader. Also the whole book is like a TV show where you have product placements on the scene. Some parts really sound annoyingly like advertisement.

    The narrator was just OK, but she wasn't very successful with the different voices, especially the male ones. I usually was not able to understand who was speaking.

    On the whole, I think it is a very sad story. All throughout the book, my dominant feeling was of sadness.

    I would have given even a lower score if it were possible. I am not very squeamish but this book is audio porn! From the description and the cover of course I expected erotic scenes but I wasn't expecting this much. Be warned. Also the narration was the worst I heard on Audible till now. The narrator read the whole story in a flat tone. The book was just a waste of money and time.

    Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down.

    Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books. I've read it many times and have seen all film versions several times too. So I am not going into how much I love the book as a whole as well as all the characters in it. What I want to say is that the narration is excellent. After I listened to all available audio versions of this book on Audible, I decided to buy this one. It was a good choice. Maybe the others are as good too, but I do not regret my decision. Even though I know by heart what happens in which scene, I couldn't stop listening. The narration was captivating.

    At a dinner party in Richmond, the host tells an astonishing story of his travels into the future, where, at first, it seems that man has moved on to a higher plane of existence - suffering and war seem to have been eliminated. But in fact there are two races living on the Earth: the Eloi, a leisured, decadent, androgynous group; and the Morlocks, an underground tribe of bestial workers.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.
