    Just before his regiment sails off to war in the Sudan, British officer Harry Feversham quits the military. He is immediately given four white feathers as symbols of cowardice, one by each of his three best friends and one by his fiancée. To disprove this grave dishonor, Harry dons an Arabian disguise and leaves for the Sudan, where he anonymously comes to the aid of his three friends, saving each of their lives. Having proven his bravery, Harry returns to England, hoping to regain the love and respect of his fiancée.

    Whilst I thought the idea behind the story was great - I didn't find the book or the performance particularly satisfying.

    Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

    The Scarlet Society is a secret club of 12 powerful and sexually adventurous women. But when a photograph of the body of one of the men they're recruited to dominate - strapped to a gurney, the number 1 inked on the sole of his foot - is sent to the New York Times, they are shocked and frightened. Unable to cope with the tragedy, the women turn to Dr. Morgan Snow.

    Enjoyed listening to this as it didn't require an awful lot of attention.
    And the evening wasn't as predictable as some.

    Like golfing, fishing, and gardening, knitting is an obsession. It's an activity fraught with guilt, frustration, over-optimism, sly deception, and compulsion, along with passionate moments of creative enlightenment - not to mention heaps of yarn you really think you'll knit someday. The first step toward recovery is getting help - and having a good laugh at your compulsion. At Knit's End is a wicked and wickedly funny fix for any knitter.

    Known for tackling hot-button issues in her timely fiction, Jodi Picoult has sold millions of books. Change of Heart explores capital punishment and organized religion through the tale of death row inmate Shay Bourne. Bourne's last request is to donate his heart to his victim's ailing sister. The situation gets more complicated when Bourne begins performing miracles in full view of witnesses - including his Catholic spiritual advisor.

    This book took many weeks to listen to as I was very busy at the time. The fact that I didn't need to go back and remembered the storyline and characters indicated a great story told by one of the best.

    I found this a great listen. Fortunately I had a weekend with lots of travel so was able to hear most of it before returning to work Monday. Loved the twists and turns and great characters. Look forward to hearing more from Mo Hayder.

    Story

    Hell Island does not appear on any maps. It is a secret place where classified experiments have been carried out. Experiments that have gone terribly wrong. When all contact with the island is inexplicably lost, four crack Special Forces units are dropped in. Their mission is to land on Hell Island and discover what has happened. Nothing can prepare them for what they find there. You could say they've just entered Hell. Only that would be wrong. This is much, much worse.

    Paul says: "Great story but priced wrong"
    "Superb"
    Overall

    Matthew Reilly's writing is, as usual, superb.
