  • Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting

    Story
    (94)

    Using a travel guide format, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee acts as tour guide extraordinaire, describing and critiquing every aspect of this territory she knows so well: its people (young and old, male and female), familiar phrases ("purl this, darn that"), strange beliefs, currency (skein trading), etiquette, holidays (any sale day at the local yarn shop), and customs. She notes important dates in knitting history and celebrates unsung knitting heroes.

    Would you listen to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off again? Why?

    I had a hard time listening to Stephanie read her own books. Her timing is off and it comes across as stunted.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Did not finish


    Did Stephanie Pearl-McPhee do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Eh ... it's not really character driven. But it is a funny look at us crafty folks and our obsession with two sticks and some pretty string.

  • Outlander

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    If you could sum up Outlander in three words, what would they be?

    History, Romance, suspense


    What other book might you compare Outlander to and why?

    This is a stand alone series for me


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved listening to it - very different from reading. She really weaves a spell with her voice. I was unsure she could carry off the "Claire" in my head - but now I can't imagine someone else trying to read them aloud.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest: Free Performance

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 58 mins)
    • By Oscar Wilde

    Story

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    Susan says: "So much fun!"
    "Lovely Interlude"

    Would you listen to The Importance of Being Earnest: Free Performance again? Why?

    I would listen to this performance again. I love Oscar Wilde and the verbal banter had me laughing out loud.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James Marsters does an excellent job with pace and timing in this play. Who else could be Ernest?


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just James Marsters reading Storm Front
