  • Four Fires

    • UNABRIDGED (29 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Bryce Courtenay
    • Narrated By Humphrey Bower

    Story
    (742)

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Four Fires to be better than the print version?

    I don't know.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None in particular, I enjoyed the narrator who was the character "Mole".


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

    Loved his narrative, rarely does a performance made story come to life as Humphrey did. Accents did not sound pitifully fake as many narrators do. Even the women's voices were appealing. I would listen to more of his narrations.


    If you could take any character from Four Fires out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The mother, I liked her attitude.

    Story
    (13008)

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    Probably with the performer.


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    Yes. I made read the next in the series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone with a softer, lower voice to fit the mood better. She sounded like a geeky teenager, not a young woman. No humor where it should of been, no awe where it should have been. A pretty flat unsexy performance.


    Was Fifty Shades of Grey worth the listening time?

    It was o.k.


    Any additional comments?

    I had heard a lot about this book and was anxiously waiting for it. Just a bit of a let down, seemed like a cheap romance novel and the performance didn't do anything to help.
