    Moby-Dick by Herman Melville is a classic of American and world literature. Written in 1851, this is the incredible story of the crazed captain Ahab who, consumed by his desire for revenge, drives his crew to scour the oceans of the world for the fearsome white whale, Moby Dick. It soon becomes clear that Ahab will stop at nothing and is prepared to risk everything, his ship, his crew members, and his own life. Herman Melville (1819 - 1891) was an American novelist short story writer, essayist and poet.

    "Great listen"
    Overall

    Read beautifully and clearly. It is easy to get lost in the story and characters with this reader. Audiobook is an easy way to dive into the classics while exercising, working or traveling. Moby Dick is an incredible adventure with lovely and formidable characters challenging "evil" in the mysterious, primordial ocean.

  • The End of the Affair

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 28 mins)

    (2357)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Emily - Audible says: "Colin Firth Kills It"
    "New to Greene: Deep pleasure."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The End of the Affair to be better than the print version?

    Wonderful! Beautiful. Painful and poetic. Firth brought the story so vividly to life in my imagination that I can hear him and the pain of the three characters reverberating still. Greene and Firth make God live in the most real and tragic way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The End of the Affair?

    The pain in Firth's voice embodied the anguish of the narrator.

    Story
    (2059)

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Kristi Richardson says: "A great short detective mystery!"
    "Well read; not my taste for detective story."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Reading was impeccable, capturing creepy or sassy very well.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Gardner’s story?

    Lack of complexity. Beautiful people who are perfectly interesting and good. Boring.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Great tone, timing and tension.

  • The English American

    Story
    (330)

    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Michael says: "Outstanding"
    "A wonderful, HILARIOUS, human story. I love Pippa."

    If you could sum up The English American in three words, what would they be?

    Very human and a fun ride.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The English American?

    Her outrageous rock 'n roll cowboy singing. And when she is reunited with her real parents in England. Bless them.


    Have you listened to any of Alison Larkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Who was the most memorable character of The English American and why?

    Pippa--she's wonderful. Lively, witty, kind and she knows how to MAKE TEA! I also love her ambiguity in finally loving her whole self as an English American.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks to Alison Larkin.

    Story

    Set in the context of Victorian social and medical debate, this novel is about rebellion, posing fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. This revised edition draws on recent theoretical work on gender and class.

    Sally says: "Delightful"
    "For a literary sense of the industrial revolution"

    Story

    Gaskell captures the ambiguity of the situation for "masters" and "hands" through the sensitive attention of Margaret Hale. Juliet Stevenson reads beautifully, interpreting the sense of the characters and the feeling of their struggles.
