    When Dave Robicheaux, learns that an old friend, Father Jimmie Dolan has been the victim of a particularly brutal assault, he returns to New Orleans to investigate, if only unofficially.

    Joseph says: "Another winner."
    "Love Burke's Works"
    Overall

    I'm a real fan of JL Burke's Robicheaux series and I was taken aback when Mark Hammer's voice instead of Will Paton's came through my ear phones. I don't know about accents, I've never been to LA, but Mr. Hammer 'snorks' while reading and it was very bothersome, distracting. I like the writer's work but not the reader. Maybe he had a cold, or sinus problem but I would love to hear Will read this, I'd enjoy it so much more.

    The picturesque Cotwsold village of Winter Parva has decided to warm the post-Christmas season by roasting a pig in the town square. Agatha, always one for a good roasting, organizes an outing to enjoy the merriment. But as the rotary spit is placed over a bed of fiery charcoals and the pig is carried toward its final resting place, Agatha realizes that things are not as they seem... Stop!" she screams suddenly. The "pig," in fact, is Gary Beech, a policeman not exactly beloved by the good people of the village. Although Agatha has every intention of leaving matters to the police....

    Where does As the Pig Turns rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you are looking for something compelling find another book. But if it's easy, light and just for fun you've found it. I thoroughly enjoyed this unbelievable story. The narrator was the perfect choice. A great beach listen. Buy it.

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    Ella says: "Just OK"
    "So Angry"
    Overall

    I was in love with this book, captivated by a story of a mute boy and his dogs. It was a mystery, an adventure, thriller...until the end. And then I literally exclaimed outloud that it could not end in such a way. No! Mr. Wroblewski you should never ever destroy a child that we've come to love. I know it's fiction but I lived this one and you broke my heart.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    The best book I've listened to all year...splendid. The multiple narrators...perfect. What else is there to say?

  • Anna Karenina

    Story

    Considered by some to be the world's greatest novel, Anna Karenina contains two plots: the tragedy of Madame Karenina, in love with a man who is not her husband; and the story of Konstantine Levin, a sensitive man whose personal philosophy is Tolstoy's reason for writing about him.

    D. Littman says: "A classic, classically read"
    "Ho Hum"
    Overall

    I have heard all my long life that Anna Karenina is considered among the greatest works of fiction. I beg to differ. I was bored stiff with the self-absorbed creatures inhabiting it's pages. I finished it but now I wonder why....sorry Mr. Tolstoy, I just could not appreciate it. The one thing I can think of to recommend 'Anna' is the portrait of pre-WW1 Russia but you must slog through the selfish remontrations to ferret it out.

  • Hunting Eichmann: Chasing Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi

    Best-selling author Neal Bascomb has garnered critical acclaim for such riveting nonfiction as Higher and Red Mutiny. Based on extensive interviews and previously classified details, Hunting Eichmann is a compelling account of the relentless hunt for the nefarious Adolf Eichmann.

    Scott says: "A Fascinating Story of Eichmann's Capture"
    "Who Knew"
    Overall

    I read this book a few months ago and still think of the extraordinary events, happenstance and incidents of time, the perseverence and dedication of man. How difficult it must have been and yet how anticlimatical the capture had to be for those who were consumed by the search. Thank you dear author for writing this book in such a straightforward way.
