    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.

    Story

    This story grabbed me from the start and never let me go. I was glued to my Ipod for the last three days. Ms French is so very good at character development. The narrator sounds plausibly Irish to my American ears. (He may well be an Irishman but if not, he does a great job with the accent) I highly recommend this entire series.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Story

    This story is engaging. I like the characters that Ms Harrison has created very much and I really like how she has thrust all the witches, vampires, pixies, etc. into relatively present day Cinncinnatti. The society she has constructed for them is interesting as are the interactions of these species with each other and their human counterparts. This is a great escapist reading just for the fun of it. The narrator is well suited to the story.

    A BBC radio full-cast dramatisation of the first book in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Brian Sibley's famous 1981 adaptation, starring Ian Holm and Michael Hordern, has been divided into three corresponding parts, with newly recorded beginning and end narration by Ian Holm.

    Story

    All three of the titles in the trilogy are most excellently performed as a radio drama for the BBC. The actors do a splendid job, the effects are realistic. I felt as is I were watching the performance in my mind. Highly recommend this audio program.

    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    I really liked this story. The narration was a bit dry but I did appreciate the pronunciation of unfamiliar German words. I thoroughly enjoyed the character of The Hangman.

    When Betsy Devonshire arrived in Excelsior, Minnesota, all she wanted was to visit her sister Margot and get her life in order. She never dreamed her sister would give her a place to stay and a job at her needlecraft shop. In fact, things had never looked so good - until Margot was murdered. In a town this friendly, it's hard to imagine who could have committed such a horrible act, but Betsy has a few ideas. There's an ex-employee who wants to start her own needlework store. And there's the landlord who wanted Margot out. Now Betsy's putting together a list of motives and suspects....

    Not a crafty person so all the needlework references were a bit wearing but helped fill an afternoon of housework.

    Felix Castor used to cast out demons for a living, and London was his stomping ground. But in a time when the supernatural realm is in upheaval and spilling over into the mundane world of the living, his skills are in renewed demand. With old debts to pay, Castor is left with no choice but to accept one final, well-paying assignment: a seemingly simple exorcism.

    Story

    This audiobook is the perfect storm of narrator meets protagonist meets plot. Michael Kramer IS Felix Castor. He hits all the right notes here. And the story-Mike Carey does a great job of genre-bending. I do not care for Jim Butcher and this series is in the same vein but the writing here makes all the difference to me. Not for the faint of heart; there is gore galore but the witty dialogue and interesting plot twists make this book well worth while. The entire series is highly recommended.

    From its beginning as a weekly column in a British newspaper, Bridget Jones’s Diary quickly became a best-seller in England. After gaining international popularity, it also shot to the top of the New York Times best-seller list. A 30-something single professional, Bridget Jones prefers a diary to a day planner for tracking her life. Each entry is an honest and hilarious step in her endless quest for self-improvement.

    If you could sum up Bridget Jones’s Diary in three words, what would they be?

    Smart, funny, endearing


    What did you like best about this story?

    BrIdget is so very real. Having been a singleton myself, I can easily relate to her dating ups and downs.


    What does Barbara Rosenblat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms Rosenblat does a great Brit.


    Who was the most memorable character of Bridget Jones’s Diary and why?

    Bridget, of course! She has such inner poise. Mark Bloody Darcy is a great character too.


    Any additional comments?

    One of my all time faves. Sits high atop the Chick Lit genre. Nothing else comes close.
