    Story
    (13)

    It's tough to be 13, especially when somebody's trying to kill you. Not that Egg's life was ever easy, growing up on sweaty, pirate-infested Deadweather Island with no company except an incompetent tutor and a pair of unusually violent siblings who hate his guts. But when Egg's father hustles their family off on a mysterious errand to fabulously wealthy Sunrise Island, then disappears with the siblings in a freak accident, Egg finds himself a long-term guest at the mansion of the glamorous Pembroke family and their beautiful, sharp-tongued daughter Millicent.

    Story

    My boys loved the story and stayed up way too late listening to it. Hated to see it end and were sad that Book 2 isn't available yet. Can't get much higher review than that!

  • Anna Karenina

    Story

    This is the story of the unhappy family of Anna Karenina. The novel contains much concerning Tolstoy's spiritual crisis and his search for the meaning of life. But it is also chiefly about marriage, and the growth and death of love.

    What did you love best about Anna Karenina?

    I tried to read this a few years ago and just couldn't make it, although I really wanted to, so this was a great way to get that check mark! Overall, I loved it and was thrilled to be able to multi-task my way through it. I did enjoy the story and stepping back in time.


    Did Davina Porter do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narration was average at best, I didn't care for her "male voice effect" - they came across much angrier than I imagined almost every time, but hey, she was reading and not me so I could live with it!


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

    36 hours in one sitting? I don't think so....
