    In The Murder of Tut, James Patterson and Martin Dugard chronicle their epic quest to find out what happened to the boy-king. They comb through the evidence--X-rays, Carter's files, forensic clues--and scavenge for overlooked data to piece together the details of his life and death. The result is a true crime tale of intrigue, betrayal, and usurpation that presents a compelling case that King Tut's death was anything but natural.

    Kelly says: "Painful to listen to!"
    "Cheesy story, horrible narrator."
    Overall

    This was so awkwardly narrated and so badly written that I didn't even make it through the whole thing. Terrible. Really. Not even good historical fiction. It uses long-debunked theories about King Tut to build the story.

    Set in the 1930s, when the devastating effects of World War I are still resonating throughout the world, Peter Pan in Scarlet takes listeners on an unforgettable journey fraught with danger. Fearing for Peter Pan's life, Wendy and the Lost Boys find their way back to Neverland with the help of the fairy Fireflyer, only to discover adventure waiting in ambush and their worst nightmares coming true in the most unexpected ways!

    A User says: "Mr. Curry is a better narrator then I imagined."
    "A Dark and Unpleasant Take On Neverland"
    Overall

    While some of the story elements were charming or interesting, the whole story was disappointing. It was disjointed and strange, but not in a fun way. The author clearly does not like or understand children. It was like "Peter Pan" meets "Lord of the Flies". Peter Pan is an unpleasant bully here, and too much real life (war, environmental poison) intrude on Neverland. Not for children, but not for adults either, this story was pretty unsatisfying. Well read by Tim Curry though.
