    Patrick Taylor’s devoted readers and listeners know Doctor Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly as a pugnacious general practitioner in the quaint Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Now Taylor turns back the clock to give us a portrait of the young Fingal - and show us the pivotal events that shaped the man he would become. In the 1930s, fresh from a stint in the Royal Navy Reserve, and against the wishes of his disapproving father, Fingal O’Reilly goes to Dublin to study medicine.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Dublin Student Doctor the most enjoyable?

    The narrator made the characters come to life. Patrick Taylor's description of Ireland before the war was excellent. I felt like I was there.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Flaherty O'Reilly - the guy is full of life. Big Heart, and isn't afraid to express his beliefs. (except for his emotional feelings). I love the expressions he comes out with!


    Have you listened to any of John Keating???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent, as usual. I have listened to all of the Irish Country Doctor series, and the narrator keeps up the excellent standard.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh, laugh, laugh. - and cry when he lost some of his patients (spoiler).


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy James Harriett, you'll like this series. Highly Recommended! More books, please, Patrick Taylor!

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Jane says: "Definitely entertaining. I had some smiles."
    "Fantastic!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gods of Guilt to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I listen to all of Michael Connelly's books on audio because Peter Giles is such a great narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspence- I couldn't stop listening! I also liked the details from the courtroom. I was easily able to follow the investigation and trial.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Giles – was your favorite?

    Mickey O'Halaran - He is so human!


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Narrating.

    For Oxford student Kivrin, traveling back to the 14th century is more than the culmination of her studies - it's the chance for a wonderful adventure. For Dunworthy, her mentor, it is cause for intense worry about the thousands of things that could go wrong.

    What made the experience of listening to Doomsday Book the most enjoyable?

    Connie Willis is so descriptive of historical settings, and she gets you very emotionally involved with the characters.


    What other book might you compare Doomsday Book to and why?

    Outlander - just for the time travel.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jenny Sterlin?

    Absolutely not. She reads so slowly. Good thing the plot was so interesting, otherwise I would have given up.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. Her characters were very believable and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    The books are a little dated. The future is 2040, but 2012 technology is more advanced in some situations. Other than that, I would read more of her books (this is the 3rd time travel book of hers I have read.)
