    That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter's new life and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has.

    "Great easy listen"
    Overall

    A fun and easy listen when you are looking for something to relax to. I would also say that it seemed to go by much more quickly than the allotted time.

  • Julius Caesar

    Story
    (24)

    The skies over ancient Rome blaze with terrifying portents, and soothsayers warn Julius Caesar of approaching doom. As conspiracy swirls through the city, Shakespeare explores the deep repercussions of political murder on the human heart. A classic tale of duplicity, betrayal and murder, masterfully performed by an all-star, all-American cast in this BBC co-production.

    "Hard to understand using #4 Audio"
    Overall

    I think I should have downloaded the enhanced audio version, because it was pretty hard for me to understand most of the lines. I had to keep the audio up all of the way just to try and understand it, and even that didn't help during the whispering scenes.

    In his eagerly awaited fourth novel, New York Times best-selling author Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they've reached the end of the line.

    Julia's aunt says: "Seems made for audio format"
    "Laugh and cry"
    Overall

    A great laugh of a book, 'what a laugh!' as the English love to say... yet really sad at the same time. When listening to it, you do find yourself laughing out loud quite a bit. But being someone with depressive tendencies of my own, I couldn't help feeling that overall this book did bring my mood down a bit.

    The different voices/actors used for the different characters really make this a great audio listen. I think I would have preferred this book on audio, as opposed to reading it.

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    "Incredible book, not necessarily for audio"
    Overall

    What an amazing novel! Absolutely enjoyed this... the imagery was my favorite part, and the relationship between the boy and the father really should make this book universally appealing.

    Only reason I didn't give this five stars was because I think this book would have been better read than listened to it. Some parts I would have preferred to stop and dwell a bit. The prose is really magnificnt in a few places, and I feel that the audio experience might have made them seem a bit cheap.
