    Definitely not up to Crighton's usual standards. Predictable and naive. I also did not like the reader. He was so bad he was actually distracting at times.

    In this stunning sequel to The Golden Compass, the intrepid Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld, Cittagazze, where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: twelve-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

    Geoffrey says: "The second book in a fantastic trilogy!"
    "A series with an agenda"
    Overall

    This is definitely not a children's series and those that make comparisons to Harry Potter are mistaken. Clearly this is the antithesis to C.S. Lewis' Narnia books. It is blatantly anti-God, anti-church (of any kind) and the sad part is that Mr. Pullman doesn't actually seem to comprehend the theology he so unabashedly despises. The story is engaging, but parents beware, this is a book with an agenda. It's a treatise dressed up like a story and with a rather mean spirit at its heart.

    Lyra and Will, the two ordinary children whose extraordinary adventures begin in The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife, are in unspeakable danger. With help from Iorek Byrnison the armored bear and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a dank and gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone.

  • The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel

    Story

    Great Britain, circa 1985: time travel is routine, and literature is taken very, very seriously. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, Special Operative in literary detection. But when someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature and plucks Jane Eyre from the pages of Bronte's novel, Thursday is faced with the challenge of her career.

    Susan says: "What a gem!"
    "Not even in Douglas Adam's class"
    Overall

    First truly boring Audible book I've purchased. I purchased it on the basis of the Douglas Adams comparison but this doesn't even come close. Don't be fooled.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"

    Unforgettable!
