    Story

    Reading the works of James Herriot in print is always enjoyable. His writing is beautiful and moving. Listening to Christopher Timothy bring those words to life is exquisite. Masterful writing comes together with brilliant narration, and the result is perfection. These books are a treat for the soul.

    Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

    Story

    Brilliant writing, brilliant narration. This audio book is the perfect marriage of good writing and talented narration. I find myself wiping away tears, or bursting into laughter as I listen. What a beautiful combination is the loving writing of James Herriot and the skillful reading of Christopher Timothy! I wish I could visit Yorkshire, although now I feel as if I'm already there.

    Story

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."

    Story

    What a great read! I'm just a middle-aged American housewife with no ties to Asia or any detailed knowledge of the area, other than what is commonly known, and yet I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author wrote with obvious respect for the people and culture he described. Despite being a "history book," this was one I was reluctant to put down, and always looked forward to being able to continue as soon as my present task was over. I recommend it to anyone.

    Story

    Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply....

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    When the writing was plot-driven, it moved along in an engaging way. When it was social agenda-driven, it dulled to a preachy slog. Very important plot questions were left unanswered. Issues presented to the reader as both dangerous and important were left unresolved.


    What about Alex McKenna’s performance did you like?

    She expressed legitimate emotions and provided distinct voices for the various characters.


    Was Every Day worth the listening time?

    Perhaps for some. As social propaganda, it's well written. As a story, it leaves too much unresolved. Was this book just a lead-in to a series?
