    The story tells of Jim, a young, good-looking, genial, and naive water-clerk on the Patna, a cargo ship plying Asian waters. One night, when the ship collides with an obstacle and begins to sink, acting on impulse, Jim jumps overboard and lands in a lifeboat, which happens to be bearing the unscrupulous captain and his cohorts away from the disaster.

    John says: "Great novel, stunning narration."
    "Unbelievably Good"
    Overall

    I had been promising myself to read this classic for well over 40 years. The book is incredible, but the narration is fantastic. I dare say that I would not have appreciated this work as much had I read it in the traditional way. Nigel Graham's pacing is wonderful. You have the feeling that your are listening to an incredible play, with distinct actors taking the parts. I cannot recommend this enough!

    Bartolomeo di Crespi is the acclaimed interior decorator of Our Lady of Fatima, New Jersey. To date, Bartolomeo has hand-selected every chandelier, sconce, and ottoman in OLOF, so when the renovation of the local church is scheduled, he assumes there is only one man for the job.

    Some interesting characters, but none of them really that grabbing. My wife and I listened to this together, and we had a few laughs, but overall, would just rate this book 'ok'.

  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand: A Novel

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Maybe a bit of a slow start, but what a fantastic audio book! My wife and I listened together on a car trip and both of us thoroughly enjoyed both author and reader. We immediately went to look for other books by the author, but alas, could find none.
