    The exhilerating tale of Takeo continues in book II of the internationally best-selling Tales of the Otori trilogy, a sweeping saga set in a mythical, medieval Japan.

    RacerX says: "Good book. First one was better"
    "Very Good Story. Great Narration"
    Overall

    If you have an interest in medieval Japan this is a very interesting book. The main characters are a man and a woman whose 2 lives intertwine but only with difficulty because of class structure.
    each chapter is either the male or female's point of view each done in an appropriate voice. I really enjoyed the narration and think it is very well done and increased my enjoyment of the publication. I've listened to both and anxiously await the next one.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    "Great novel of Medieval Japan"

    Meet Ella Turner and Isabelle du Moulin, two women born centuries apart, yet bound by a fateful family legacy. When Ella and her husband move to a small town in France, Ella hopes to brush up on her French, qualify to practice as a midwife, and start a family, but a peculiar dream of the color blue propels her on a quest to uncover her family's French ancestry.

    Beth says: "excellent listening, mediocre story"
    "Most enjoyable"
    Overall

    for me this was was hard to put down or turn off as the case may be.
    At first I wasn't sure of the connection between Ella Turner and Isabelle du Moulin but the more I listened the more interested I became and the more I wanted to hear. I read 2 books by this author and have REALLY enjoyed both. I would strongly recommend The Virgin Blue and and The Girl With The Pearl Earring. I plan to listen to or read more of Tracy C.

  • Barry Trotter and the Unauthorized Parody

    Warning: This isn't the real thing...it's funnier! "Gerber's affectionate, giggle-inducing send-up is one giant step toward restoring the somewhat debased art form known as 'parody,'" says Sean Kelly, former editor of National Lampoon. If you love Harry Potter - or if you have had enough of him! - you've gotta hear this.

    Eddie Beard says: "If Zero stars were an option . . ."
    "Really Enjoyable"
    Overall

    I found this to be quite humorous and really enjoyable. It is a total satire and, imho, a good one. It helps to know a bit about the major harry potter characters and some of the lingo otherwise you might not understand some of the jokes and most of the names. If you've seen the movie that should provide enough info to really enjoy this. Its worth the download.
