Teacher and avid audible listener. Love well written fiction of all genres. Can even listen to a mediocre story if the narrator rocks!

  • The Wine of Angels

    Story
    (81)

    A paradise parish of cobbled streets and timber-framed houses, and a huge, haunted vicarage were not what the Revd Merrily Watkins ever had in mind. Nor had she wanted to walk into a local dispute over a play about a curious 17th century cleric accused of witchcraft, a story that certain old-established families would rather remained in obscurity. But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets.

    Ruth says: "Brilliant!"
    "Rickman's Merrily series is addictive."

  • Code Name Verity

    Code Name Verity is a compelling, emotionally rich story with universal themes of friendship and loyalty, heroism and bravery. Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War II: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends. But then a vital mission goes wrong....

    What made the experience of listening to Code Name Verity the most enjoyable?

    The narration added to the story instead of getting in the way


    Have you listened to any of Morven Christie and Lucy Gaskell ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will be seeking out narration by these two! Outstanding performances.


    Any additional comments?

    This is classified under YA, but the story is spun in a very adult setting and engaging. I wish there were more stories like this one.

  • Chaos in Death: In Death, Book 33.5

    Story
    (886)

    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    L. Reiner says: "In Death Book 33.5 - Not Robb's best, but good"
    "JD Robb's Series"

    What did you love best about Chaos in Death?

    I love the way Robb builds on the core character stories in each of the books in the series.
