    Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film and television interpretations since its publication. Required listening for any fan of the genre!

    Marc 's narration was that of just one step above a computer. The sentences were fragmented, and monotone, except when he did foreign accents other than English. Those were very good!

  • Jane Eyre [Brilliance Edition]

    (984)

    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

    LOVED this story! I laughed and cried on my lengthy commutes to and from work. Love listening to these audible books through my car speakers! At times, I would forget it was a woman speaking the male parts. Susan did a wonderful job!

  • Wuthering Heights

    Famous, all-encompassing, passionate, but ultimately doomed love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and the people around them. Today considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights was met with mixed reviews when it first appeared, mainly because of the narrative's stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty.

    I hadn't read this story in over 25 years. I don't remember there being so many mean characters! You'll also want to keep your hand on the volume control. The narrator dips from a whisper to shouting in your ears quite frequently! I almost quitted the book a couple of times, but had to see hear it through.
