    The young and headstrong D'Artagnan, having proven his bravery by dueling with each, becomes a friend of Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, members of the King's Musketeers. He is in love with Constance Bonancieux and, at her urging, he and his friends head for England to reclaim two diamond studs that the Queen has imprudently given to her lover, the Duke of Buckingham.

    "a good recording of a fun but frivolous story"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story though I was surprised at how different it is from Count of Monte Christo(one of my favorites). The situations are often rediculous but the characters are enjoyable. The recording is well done.

    In this charming sequel to Anne of Green Gables, the unpredictable red-headed heroine returns for more wonderful adventures. When Anne Shirley first came to the beautiful Canadian town of Avonlea, she was a mischievous, talkative orphan who captured the hearts of everyone she met. Now, a few years later, Anne is a young woman with new dreams.

    The entire series is so wonderful, very engaging, nothing objectionable. And Barabara Caruso feels like a friend, her narration is the very best. I now judge all other narrators by her.

  • A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Maxine Fuentes says: "Wonderful"
    "long awaited, much enjoyed"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite books and I enjoyed the audio performance. My main complaint (and it's a small one) was the character of Dick at the end and his family. I found the southern accent pretty offensive. The stereotypical dumb southern portrayal was disappointing, but perhaps that was how the author envisioned them. I had not and it seemed a bit shallow to resort to that. Overall I enjoyed the narrator, not as consistant as some other audio books I've listened to, but still well done. The recording was better than some others as well. Be warned the language was a little more jarring to listen to instead of reading.

  • A Tale of Two Cities

    A Tale of Two Cities, one of Charles Dickens' most popular works, is highly recognized for its opening line, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." The two cities of the title are Paris and London; the time is the height of the French Revolution. From the gripping opening scene of the coach drive to the heroic climax in the shadow of the guillotine, Dickens creates a vivid picture of social turmoil and the unfolding of a dramatic love story.

    Connie says: "almost great"
    "Very good reading of a great book"
    Overall

    A Tale of Two Cities has always been a favorite book, the tragedy, the intrigue, the sweep of fate. But I didn't realize how much of the book I was skimming over when reading it until I listened to the audio. The narrator is excellent. His use of different voices is seamless and well done, adding much to the understanding of the book. The portrayed emotion also is excellent. I enjoyed this recording immensely.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "A favorite book and a great narration"
    Overall

    Enders Game is one of my all time favorite books. I was very pleased with the audio version and enjoyed the discussion with the author at the end. Sometimes I've discovered that the audio version of a favorite book just doesn't live up to my memory. But this recording of Ender's Game is very well done; the narration is clear and understandable, inflection of the different characters is distinct without being distracting. Highly recommend

  • Outlander

    • UNABRIDGED (33 hrs and 8 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "great narration but very explicit"
    Overall

    I initially really enjoyed this audio book, the narration is wonderful, the accent adding to the enjoyment. However I was not aware of the sexually explicit nature of the book. I wish all the glowing reviews I had read had given some warning of this. It may not bother some, but it was just too much for me.
