    Kept in the Dark is a probing psychological portrait of the near destruction of a marriage - a novel that combines keen insights with vigorous emotional strength. Jealousy, guilt, excessive pride, and compulsion all sweep across its surface.

    Virginia says: "Fascinating Story"
    "interesting psychological profile"
    Overall

    This book is an interesting psychological study. It reminds me a bit of Jane Bronte's Villette. I very much enjoyed the story. The narrator is also excellent. This tale is told from the heroine's perspective, and so a female narrator is quite fitting. I will search out other books by this narrator. Good story, good narration, five stars.

    I am on a quest to read, and/or listen to, all of the authors recommended/enjoyed by C.S. Lewis, and so books by Anthony Trollope are on my list.

    With inspiring stories and thought-provoking questions, Ravi Zacharias traces the multiple threads of our lives, describing how the unseen hand of God guides our joys, our tragedies, and our daily humdrum experiences to weave a pattern of divine providence and meaning.

    Mark says: "Grand indeed"
    "Great book read by the author"
    Overall

    Ravi Zacharias is a public speaker as well as an author, and he is the perfect narrator for this beautifully written, inspiring book. The Grand Weaver works well in the audible format although a number of times I have stopped the recording in order to write down something that is especially notable. Well worth the purchase.

    When Eddie was 12 years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder - and money tighter - since his father died and the family bakery closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning. What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

    A User says: "Very Rewarding Listen"
    "Tears of sadness and joy!"
    Overall

    This is a great little book. The narration is also wonderful. Expect to cry because the book is truly moving.

  • The Faerie Queene

    Story

    This remarkable poem, dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I, was Spenser's finest achievement: the first epic poem in modern English. The Faerie Queene combines dramatic narratives of chivalrous adventure with exquisite and picturesque episodes of pageantry. At the same time, Spenser is expounding a deeply-felt allegory of the eternal struggle between Truth and Error.

    Graham says: "Fragmentary"
    "missing portions"
    Overall

    This is an extremely interesting story, the narration is wonderful, and I am glad that I downloaded it. There are, however, some serious problems with this recording! Read the earlier reviewer for details.
