    Sister Evangeline was just a girl when her father entrusted her to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Now, at 23, her discovery of a 1943 letter from the famous philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent plunges Evangeline into a secret history that stretches back a thousand years: an ancient conflict between the Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful descendants of angels and humans.

    I debated getting this book for at least a month, due to the negative reviews, and the low star rating. But I was intrigued by the premise for the book. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DOWNLOADED IT. I loved this book, the plot, the characters. I hope the sequel comes soon. This would be a great series to replace the endless Vampire based books. A Saga of Angels on earth, count me in. I have to apologize to the narator, I ripped her for the naration of The Eight by Kathrine Nevile....She completly redeems herself with this naration.

    Two childhood friends from Scotland and two illegitimate half-brothers from the deep South suffer and enjoy all manner of bizarre adventures that, it turns out, are somehow interconnected and, even more surprisingly, meaningful. The eclectic cast of characters features Socrates, Carl Jung, and Tony Randall, along with an ex-television evangelist with a penchant for booze, prostitutes, and uncomfortable knitwear who gets mugged in Miami by an almost pure-blooded Watusi warrior - and sets off on a road trip in a stolen motor home.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Teenage Boys


    What was most disappointing about Craig Ferguson’s story?

    The lack of continuity for the use of all the sexual reference. It reminded me of young boy that is fascinated by the use of swear words and body parts.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Craig Ferguson’s performances?

    NO NO NO


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Between the Bridge and the River?

    Would not have published it. The only reason that it was published was because he is CF


    Any additional comments?

    I was really disappointed in this book. I watch the late show (not anymore) and considered CF to be a pretty witty fellow. But this book is horrible, the ramblings, the constant reference to body parts. The man is obsessed with pr**ks, and t**t. This is the 3rd book in 3 years I have not finished and I read 1 to 2 books a month.

  • Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    This book could be Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood series) went thru a time warp and stepped out in the 19th century, and her southern accent was replaced with an upper crust english accent. Haven't decided if I want to continue the series, just as in TB this book has sex scene that just really are not necessary to the story.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Nothing I would watch


    Any additional comments?

    I could see this book appealing to romantic readers, which I guess makes me not one

    I'm on to book four, yep, I'm invested into this series, book 3 is defenetly worth listening to book 2. The first two books are just a launching point for the series. I don't think the series really sets its own tone until book three, which I enjoyed.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    "Dues to pay to get to Book 3 & 4"
    Overall

    I have looked at this series for a year, because I like the narrators, and Brandon Sanderson. This must have been the first book Kate & Micheal narrated, it is not as polished as the current reads they have done. The story is slow, and parallels LOR to a point of prediction for the story line. The only redeeming part of books 1 and 2, is they are prelude to books 3 and 4, which are very good. So if you have the patience to set the foundation of this series, and give the narrators time to flesh out the characters. Downloaded it.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    "New Classic"
    Overall

    Wow, what a great story, this has shot up to one of my favorites, Mistborn series was good, but this one is a classic. The writting and crafting of this novel is incredible. I listened to it once and am on my second time and it is just as good the second time. The naration could not be better, Micheal Kramer, and Kate Reading really add to the journey that this book will take you on. The whole sprin concept I just loved...If you liked Mistborn, this book will not disapoint you. Just hope the rest of the series is as great

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    This was such a disapointment. I am a big Neil Gaiman fan, but this book was so difficult to follow. Sometimes I think some books do not translate well to Audio, and for me this book is a prime example.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Overall

    This is the first time in 2 yrs as a Audible listener that I did not finish a story, I didn't finish part one 4 hours of " maybe it will get better". The book is probably not all that bad, I wouldn't know I could not stand to listen to it any longer. The naration is done as if the narator is being punished to read it. It is forced, has no flow.The book was just frustrating argh #$@^%$. I just finished the " The Help" which is a very hard act to follow. Probably should have waited a week or two before getting another book.

    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.

    "Very Very Special Book"
    Overall

    I am a fantasy fanatic, and just finished the "Mistborn" trilogy, which was fantastic. I did not want to get another fantasy, because it was so good. I happened on this book and got it because of the reviews, four or five star reviews every day since it's release, and I am very glad I did. This book will move you to laughter and to tears. The characters and the story are crafted superably. I was concerned that the multiple narators would be confusing, far from it. Best naration I've experienced.
