    i>The World According to Bertie is the fourth in the series and revolves around the many colorful characters that come and go at No. 44 Scotland Street. McCall Smith handles the characters with his customary charm and deftness - the stalwart Tory chartered surveyor, the pushy mother, and, most importantly in this novel, the beleaguered Italian-speaking prodigy, Bertie. This is classic McCall Smith - clever, witty and entertaining - and beautifully illustrated.

    Story

    I read a review of one of the 44 Scotland Street series which was not at ALL complimentary, to say the least. I was saddened because the writer missed the whole point of these fabulous books and one of the best narrators I have ever heard: Robert Ian MacKenzie. Was he looking for blood? Perhaps, guts? These aren't those kind of books. Instead, McCall Smith gives us a glimpse into an absolutely incredible world of (gasp) ORDINARY people. And I have fallen in love with them. Totally. When one book ends, I feel as if all my friends went on vacation at the same time and I am left bereft and alone...well, maybe that might be overstating it a bit...but, honestly, Bertie, Big Lou, Olive, Domenica, Matthew, Miss Harmony and Tofu, etc... are so very wonderful.

    No one was more surprised as I, that I could simply adore books which weren't jam-packed with the requisite blood and guts. You go, Alexander McCall Smith and Robert Ian Mac Kenzie! I'm hooked!

  • Doctor Sleep: A Novel

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    Wow! Stephen King and Will Patton! I really don't think it gets better than this. This sequel to "The Shining" is really everything a Stephen King book should be...fast paced, exciting and scary. And with the absolutely fabulous Will Patton narrating, it only gets better. Patton is a man of (apparently) a million voices. He adds depth and believability to each character. I really don't think anyone does it better than Will Patton. To team with one of my all time favorites, Stephen King, it's like all my favorite holidays rolled into one!

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    I certainly enjoy Tana French's books , but narrator Stephen Hogan takes "Broken Harbor" to a whole new level. I listen to books from Audible all the time. I have a long drive to and from town. I have NEVER heard a better narrator. Mr. Hogan makes every character distinctive and so easy to identify by his voice alone. I would be happy hearing him read the phonebook, but how about some more really good books like Tana French!

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    As a huge James Lee Burke fan, I didn't think anything could be better! And then, Will Patton was reading James Lee Burke...and things were better! I would read anything narrated by Will Patton and have read everything by James Lee Burke. Creole Belle is another terrific Dave Robicheaux book and I enjoyed every page. James Lee Burke has no equal with his descriptions, dialogue and characters. I just wish he wrote faster...

    With more than a dash of glamour and serious helpings of style, the witty and courageous Phryne Fisher returns. In 1928 St Kilda’s streets hang with fairy lights. Magic shows, marionettes, tea dances, tango competitions, life-saving demonstrations, lantern shows, and picnics on the beach are all part of the Flower Parade. And who else should be chosen to be Queen of the Flowers but the gorgeous, charming and terribly fashionable Hon Phryne Fisher?

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    Evelyn says: "Excellent listen"
    "Frank and Patton: A Fabulous Combination!"
    Overall

    As a 5th grader growing up in Homestead, Florida (former home of SAC-Homestead Air Force Base), during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Pat Frank's stunning novel, Alas, Babylon, is as powerful today as it was when it was first published. I am a HUGE Will Patton fan and have listened to everything he has read-even if I had already enjoyed the written word. Patton's brilliant narrative brings each character to life. What a fabulous combination: Frank and Patton. Bravo!
