I am a hands-on vineyard owner with my winemaker husband. While we don't sell our wine commercially, our family and friends are happy recipients of his talents. This year we will harvest our first Russian River Valley Pinot Noir crop which is already under contract to a top-ranked winemaker, Kosta Browne

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    If you are not yet an Audible.com member, this is enough incentive to get you started. The reading by Rob Inglish is as magical and intriguing as the story itself.

    What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller.

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was disappointed in this story. Mostly because the Book of Fate was so much fun and the premise of this story was intriguing. Sadly, it was maudlin, the twists were foreseeable long before they happened, the angst became unbearable and the hero was so whiny and annoying, I wanted to shoot him myself.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    "Laugh-out-loud Funny!"
    Overall

    I can't remember the last time I've enjoyed a story so much. It's is funny, imaginative and outrageous. Every character is rounded out with a minimum of background work, with the exception of Fool. They just walk in and sit right down - often on your lap. Christopher Moore's storytelling is intimate and familiar with nary a smirk to be heard. Euan Morton's reading makes even the most bawdy language seem as proper as an afternoon tea and brings all the characters to technicolor life. If I have any complaint, it's that it is too short. I could listen to this hilarious tale for days on end. Shagalicious!
