    Story

    I really enjoyed this one. In fact, I enjoyed it enough to purchase the two follow-up books. This one is the best of the trilogy, in my opinion.

    The narrator is pleasant. The setting/scenario is very interesting. Excellent character development. Lots of suspense and drama. All around compelling story.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This is by far, my favorite book that I have listened to since signing up for audible. Fantastic narration. Wonderful, believable characters. Fascinating subject matter. Fast paced. Perfect drama/suspense. So heart-warming and moving. Loved it!

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Story

    Well, the narrator has a pleasant voice. The writing style is pleasing enough. There is a poetic feel to this one, however, I just couldn't get into it. I think it's due to a lack of character development. They all seemed one-dimensional and flat. The main story line should be compelling and drive the story forward... but it didn't work for me and felt very bland. I probably won't be finishing this one.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Story

    I don't understand the many glowing reviews of this one. I've listened to hours and hours about the dull incestuous ancestors and still haven't gotten to the character the book is supposedly about. (I am halfway through.)

    The synopsis was compelling and the reviews were glowing but this book does not live up to the hype. It is dull and boring... and most of the book is about the relatives - where they originate from and their motivations.

    And, the narrator has a distinctive and irritating voice. I keep suffering through hoping that it's going to get better and yet it doesn't. This is one I'm just not going to see to the end.
