    Salander is plotting her revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.

    Erika says: "Interesting, but not the best of the three"
    "Anybody can defeat Salander"

    Story

    Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.

    Story
    (5370)

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"

    Story

    A huge novel that follows five families through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for votes for women. It is 1911. The Coronation Day of King George V. The Williams, a Welsh coal-mining family, is linked by romance and enmity to the Fitzherberts, aristocratic coal-mine owners. Lady Maud Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German Embassy in London.

  • Dracula [Audible Edition]

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 28 mins)

    Story
    (3515)

    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    N. Houghton says: "Gothic Horror Never Sounded So Good"
    "A Vampire Classic"

    What did you love best about Dracula [Audible Edition]?

    I loved the first part (Jonathan Harker's Journal)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Van Helsing


    What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

    Good, vivid and cool (Everyone but Lucy Westenra's voice)


    If you could rename Dracula [Audible Edition], what would you call it?

    The Vampire's King


    Any additional comments?

    It was quite annoying Lucy Westenra's voice when performed as the old man in Whitby

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (18185)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Past doesn't want to be changed..."

    Story
    If you could sum up 11-22-63 in three words, what would they be?

    Past is obdurate


    What did you like best about this story?

    How wrong can be somebody about consequences of their actions


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sadly, I didn't. This was the first one. His performance was outstanding.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "The life can turn on a dime"


    Any additional comments?

    Great story
