  • The Bridge of San Luis Rey

    Story
    (161)

    Wilder's stories consistently explored the connections between the commonplace and cosmic dimensions of human experience, always returning to fundamental questions about the meaning of life. This Pulitzer Prize-winning tale concerns the lives of five people who fall to their deaths from a Peruvian rope bridge in 1714. A humble Franciscan, Brother Juniper, witnesses the accident and determines to learn about the lives of the victims in order to find out whether this accident happened by chance or by plan.

    Tobin says: "Compact novel about fate, destiny"
    "A very compelling story performed well."

    A very thought provoking story. Incredibly enjoyable and well performed. Characters have depth and are realistic.

    The people of Krynn have known war in past ages. Some are still alive who remember the triumph of good at the conclusion of the War of the Lance. Still more remember the devastation of the Chaos War, which ended the Fourth Age of the world. But now a new war is about to begin, more terrible than any have known. This war is one for the very heart and soul of the world itself.

    Ronald says: "Good story marred by odd non-standard pronuncation"
    "Great story (so far). Narrator? Not so much..."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Marieve Herington?

    Love the story - hate the narration on this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marieve Herington’s performances?

    No. Her voice is beautiful but she should have listened to at least a little bit of the previous narrations. I think her pronunciation of "Majere" as "Majerry" is going to make me crazy before I finish this book!


    Was Dragons of a Fallen Sun worth the listening time?

    Haven't finished it yet. The story is intriguing - I just hope I can survive the narrator's mispronounciations.

    Readers everywhere have become entranced by the New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, from acclaimed author and award-winning wit Alexander McCall Smith. Each charming book in the series is a masterpiece of comic subtlety and a window for viewing the distinctive culture and landscape of Botswana.

    Story

    I was barely able to make it through the first three chapters. There was no action, nothing to grab my attention and way too much time spent on nonessential details. The narrator had a nice presentation, but overall the entire story just seemed to drag on endlessly.

    This is the first book by this author that I have read and I am not sure I will purchase another.
