    The murder has been solved. But has justice been done? Harry Hole is back in Oslo. He's been away for some time, but his ghosts have a way of catching up with him. The case that brings him back is already closed. There is no room for doubt: The young junkie was shot dead by a fellow addict. The police don’t want him back....Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own.

    If you could sum up Phantom in three words, what would they be?

    Intelligent
    Exiting
    Emotional


    What other book might you compare Phantom to and why?

    It's difficult to say. It's one of the only series that makes me feel extremely close to the protagonists.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He knows how to underline a scene with intonation, rythm and pauses. It's an act all by it self. Certainly my favourite narrator together with James Masters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, both.


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad I experienced this story.

    Story

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    If you could sum up Cold Days in three words, what would they be?

    Best showdown ever


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mouse - because he's still the smartest of the bunch


    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I preferred the earlier Dresden files where Marsters still breathed into the microphone. The narration was so natural without much acting.

    He's a bit overly dramatic in this one. It's a pity because I love Marsters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Let's say part 2 and 3, yes. Part 1 was hard to get through.


    Any additional comments?

    Great for fans of the series. Not so great for first timers.

  • The Help

    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.

    Overall

    When I first started the book I got borred after some time and I wanted to put it aside disappointedly.
    Then I caught I cold that bound me to my couch today so I gave it another try and started to get addicted to the story and the characters. I listened to the last 12 hours without a break. It was moving.

    Story

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "An experience"
    Overall

    I have listened to all 3 books in a row while travelling trough the north of Belgium. It was a fantastic experience. The story is intelligent, exciting and totally addictive.

    A must listen...
