Hugh Fraiser delights as always and you can't miss with Agatha Christie. A delightful escape for a hot summer day.
Who knew! Not me. I thought this was a great story, outlining the life of a misunderstood woman in American history. Was it her fault? Was it the doctors? Or the rampant filth that lined the streets of New York? A fascinating look at medical practice in early stages of understanding immunity and the way disease is transmitted. Equally fascinating is the story of Mary as told by Keane. Top rate narration, too!
This book is a must listen from a great writer/speaker. It's motivational and challenging. I highly recommend to singles and marrieds of any age.
Jenna Lamia is a wonderful narrator and she was just perfect as Zelda Fitzgerald. The story is fascinating. A beautiful portrait of a misunderstood woman and her fragile marriage to F. Scott Fitzgerald. Jazz age Paris is portrayed in all it's crazy glamour. I think this will appeal to all who give it a listen.
Love this timeless classic but what I really loved was Gyllenhaal's performance! Well worth the listen!
So much explicit sex it was hard to find the story. The narration was hard to listen to and the story was predictable.
Good background on Ms. Christie and her life. Gives motivation for her characters and plots. Very interesting.
Phillippa Gregory did extensive research for her biography of the White Queen, Elizabeth Woodville, a commoner who married a king. She was the granddaughter of the mythical water goddess Mellucinna, and daughter of Jacquetta, lady in waiting to the great Margaret Beaufort. This was a wonderful book, an extensive telling of an obscure but pivotal chapter in English history.
First, let me say that this book takes a bit of perseverance to get in to. Once you're in, there is no turning back. The narration was top notch! The story was great till the last few chapters, which, I say, from a womans point of view, were not totally believable. I'm not a feminist by a long shot, I'm just saying!!! while laughing! I really did love this book, though! And, till the last few chapters, I did think it was written by a woman, so much for my research before buying. Definitely, most definitely worth the time!
I thought this was a sweet love story and a beautiful book. The author paints the Alaskan wilderness with the fluidity of a poet. Te narration took a bit to get used to but once I was into the book I thought she captured the essence of the characters perfectly! Great selection.
