    Dear Reader: When I think of Heart of the Night, I think of one of the characters in the book, late-night disc jockey Jared Snow. So do many of my readers, if the mail they send me is any indication. It's his voice - always his voice - there on the radio, as soothing as a massage and twice as sexy. For me, Jared Snow is also a concept, the idea that a single voice on the radio is heard by many different people, with a different effect on each.

    "Heart of the Night a waste of time"
    Overall

    This is a very poorly written book. The plot was okay but the dialogue and characters were vacuous. Also the author gives away the major plot twist in the beginning of the book. Can you give minus stars? I am glad I bought it on sale.

    On Prince Edward Island, aging siblings Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt a boy to help with chores around the farm. But when Mathew arrives at the train platform, the only living creature in sight, legs dangling from the piles of shingles where she sits, is a freckled, green-eyed, redheaded little girl. Mathew senses immediately that life at Green Gables is going to be very different. And how right he is.

    Catherine says: "kindred spirit"
    "A Wonderful Story"
    Overall

    Somehow I missed reading this as a child, but so enjoyed it as an adult. A truly classic story that even if you have read it in the past is so enjoyable listening to as an audible book.

    Calling to mind such timeless war-and-love classics as Corelli's Mandolin and The English Patient, Guernica is a transporting novel that thrums with the power of storytelling and is peopled with characters driven by grit and heart.

    Ann Diggins says: "Wonderful and heartbreaking"
    "Guernica a good historical novel"
    Overall

    This was a very enjoyable book about a horrific event. The characters were wonderful and believable which makes history come alive.
