    Secrets, mistaken identities, surprise revelations, amnesia, locked rooms and locked asylums, and an unorthodox villain made this mystery thriller an instant success when it first appeared in 1860, and it has continued to enthrall ever since. From the hero's foreboding before his arrival at Limmeridge House to the nefarious plot concerning the beautiful Laura, the breathtaking tension of Collins's narrative created a new literary genre of suspense fiction, which profoundly shaped the course of English popular writing.

    Where does The Woman in White rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Who knew Charles Dickens had a more talented contemporary. I thank Lincoln Childs and Douglas Preston for leading me to this book in their last Pendergast saga. Great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marian Holcombe is the pivotal character. Without her love and devotion to her sister the plot never works.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Count Fosco - so pretentious and done so well by the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    As is Dickens, this should be required reading in high school. Better characters, better story, less lengthy descriptions.

  • Salt: A World History

    So much of our human body is made up of salt that we'd be dead without it. The fine balance of nature, the trade of salt as a currency of many nations and empires, the theme of a popular Shakespearean play...Salt is best selling author Mark Kurlansky's story of the only rock we eat.

    Overall

    Been listening to recorded books for over 15 years and have told many friends that Scott Brick could read me the phone book and I'd enjoy it. 'Salt' was interesting but was made fascinating by the talents of Brick. I am anxious to start both 'The Company' and "Alexander Hamilton' just to hear that slightly arrogant, always expressive voice. When I chose books, I search for his latest first. Keep him going!
