    Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver. Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, it is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike.

    I found the narrator so wonderful in this telling of Treasure Island that even though I knew the story, I found myself smiling at his ability to create such marvelous voices!! You'll love this one, I promise!!

  • Autobiography of a Yogi

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    "A Good Listen"
    Overall

    It's a long book and there's no doubt that there are sections that can be quite draining. But the narrator is good, the quality of the book is good and the language Yogananda uses is inspiring. I feel very confident that it's a book that I'll listen to again and again and learn from it each time more and more.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Overall

    This is my first audio book of this size and although long... I found myself listening at all hours of the day! You'll notice that Follett likes to repeat himself, refreshing your memory which I found at some times frustrating. Regardless, this is a fantastic novel and I recommend it to everyone!
