    Here is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the third book in Philip Pullman's trilogy His Dark Materials. Bringing the saga to a thrilling close, it reintroduces familiar characters such as Lyra, Will, Mrs Coulter, and Dr Mary Malone.

    I was a bit doubtful about having a cast but because there is so much dialogue in this book the dramatisation made it much easier to follow the characters. I have loved the series ever since I read them years ago and this was a fantastic listen. I just wish that Audible would get the first two books in the series - I know that they are available.

    What if you could go back in time and change the course of history?11.22.63, the date that Kennedy was shot - unless.... King takes his protagonist Jake Epping, a high school English teacher from Lisbon Falls, Maine, 2011, on a fascinating journey back to 1958 - from a world of mobile phones and iPods to a new world of Elvis and JFK, of Plymouth Fury cars and Lindy Hopping, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill who becomes the love of Jake's life.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was an interesting story that kept me going but will not be on my list of must recommend to my friends.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I found the narrator's voice a bit irritating and did not endear the characters to me.


    Do you think 11.22.63 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO, once was enough


    Any additional comments?

    We picked this as our bookclub book because one of our members was reading and enjoying it. It's an OK read but not the caliber for a book club discussion.

  • A Feast for Crows (Part One): Book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire

    A Feast for Crows brings to life dark magic, intrigue and terrible bloodshed as the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as any in its violent past. The War of the Five Kings has ripped Westeros apart. The bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning Lannisters occupy the Iron Throne, with allies as ruthless as themselves. Lord Frey was host at the Red Wedding, so called for the massacre of the guests, their screams unheard above the music of the feast.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who has a HUGE attention span would enjoy this


    What could George R. R. Martin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Mr. Martin could just continue the story line from the first 3 books and stop introducing new characters. It got tedious and lost the plot.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator could have listened to the first 3 books to remind himself of the voicing of the characters and the pronunciation of their names - Cat-lyn for 3 books then suddenly its Kate-lyn just to mention one example. Ugh.


    What character would you cut from A Feast for Crows (Part One)?

    I've forgotten them already.


    Any additional comments?

    The series started out so well and really sucked me in. I want to know how the story ends but not in so much convoluted detail. I'll wait until someone can give me a synopsis, I won't be buying any more of this series.
