    In the third book of the "Bloody Jack" series, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber, a pirate at heart, returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humour, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston--under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and she is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

    Eileen says: "Best book in the series (so far!)"
    "Simply marvelous - very entertaining!"
    Overall

    As soon as we finish listening to one, we get the next. A great favorite at my house. The ***ONLY*** reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because at times when the action gets exciting, the narration gets a bit overwrought and a wee bit screechy for my taste, but it's rather a small flaw in otherwise top-notch narration. Hooray for Jacky Faber!

    Now at last Keith Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere....

    Ok, just in case you didn't know - Keith Richards has done a LOT of drugs, and he talks a lot about drugs in his memoir. The audiobook has 3 narrators - it starts with Keef reading the intro, then Johnny Depp reads 4 chapters, then Joe Hurley reads a few more chapters, Johnny Depp comes back for a while and then the last couple are read by Keith. Even with all the switching around, it is a pretty interesting listen. My favorite bits are when he is eloquent about the music and how it makes him feel, what he says about Charlie Watts, and the way he talks about the women he has been serious about. This was far more literate and witty than I thought it could possibly be. Fancy that.
