    First published in 1925, The Painted Veil is an affirmation of the human capacity to grow, change, and forgive. Set in England and Hong Kong in the 1920s, it is the story of the beautiful but shallow young Kitty Fane. When her husband discovers her adulterous affair, he forces her to accompany him to a remote region of China ravaged by a cholera epidemic.

    I was intreged by the trailer for the recent motion picture and thought of reading the book prior to seeing the movie. It is truly thought provoking and great from start to finish. The reader is a delight. I am now in search of more of Somerset Maugham's works.

    One of the most extraordinary survival stories ever told, Aron Ralston's searing account of his six days trapped in one of the most remote spots in America, and how one inspired act of bravery brought him home.

    Overall

    If this book even sounds remotely interesting you will enjoy it immensely. Even though I just got through reading the book I wanted to hear the story read by the author. I sat in my car a few times until he came to a good stopping place I was so enthralled. Most stories that you know how they end are anti-climatic but this one is great the whole way through. My only regret--Why in the world do they have to abridge books? There were two portions of the book which I underlined and re-read many times. These parts were abridged from the reading. Aaron is amazing for other things than just his ability to cut off his arm. Listen to it and if you enjoy it also get the book and re-read it unabridged.

    When the young orphan called Pip encounters the escaped convict Magwitch, the child's life is altered forever - in ways he cannot even imagine. In the course of his story, Pip encounters such memorable characters as the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward Estella - and a mysterious benefactor. This recording includes both of the endings Dickens wrote for this classic novel.

    I really enjoyed the different voices used by the narrator. It was more than just read. I checked out this book from the local library but needed it in my collection. This is one reason I signed up with audible.com
