I am retired and am busier than when I had a full time career. I don't get time to read; but my Ipod fills the gap.

    Set in the 1920s and 1930s, Honolulu explores the stark contrast between the image of the glamorous Hawaiian paradise portrayed to the mainland and the harsh reality of life on the island. With characters as vivid and richly descriptive as the history of Hawaii itself, this novel is sure to enthrall listeners.

    Jeffrey says: "Very Distracting Narrator"
    "Interesting"
    Overall

    Glad I got this one. It was very interesting about the history of the introduction of Asian people into the fabric of the Hawaiian culture.

    In 1866 tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School when a mysterious accident takes the life of a student. Among the student's circle of friends are Hugh Pilaster; Hugh's older cousin Edward, dissolute heir to the Pilaster banking fortune; and Micky Miranda, the handsome son of a brutal South American oligarchy. The death and its aftermath begin the spiraling circle of treachery that will span three decades and entwine many lives.

    Rebecca says: "Predictable Fun"
    "Entertaining"
    Overall

    This book held my interest from the beginning. The twists and turns along with the differences between the aristocracy and the "common" people was intriguing.

    Story

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    S. Sand says: "The perfect combination of author and narrator"
    "Okay"
    Overall

    This was interesting enough, once I got into it I wanted to continue. Many twists and turns. OK for the price.

  • The Small House At Allington

    Story

    Lily is the niece of Squire Dale, a morose and rather unimaginative old bachelor who lives at the 'Great House' at Allington. His sister-in-law lives at the adjacent 'Small House', with her two daughters Lily and Belle, and the action centres on the relations between the two houses and on the romantic entanglements of the two girls.

    Joseph R says: "Lilly Dale, At Times, An Infuriating Heroine"
    "Don't buy"
    Overall

    This missive is dull, slow, and confusing. I'm sorry I bought it even at $4.95.
