    Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With the help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman.

    Love the story but I wish Lorelei King had been the reader.

    Heiress to the red rose of Lancaster, Margaret Beaufort never surrenders her belief that her house is the true ruler of England and that she has a great destiny before her. Her ambitions are disappointed when her sainted cousin Henry VI fails to recognize her as a kindred spirit, and she is even more dismayed when he sinks into madness.

    Karin says: "Good book, unsympathetic heroine"
    "Great writing, unlikeable main character"
    Overall

    Margaret Beaufort is one of those intriguing people whose role is pivotal in history but whose name we barely recognize. She is a descendent (although somewhat indirectly) of Edward I of England and eventually mother of the boy who became Henry VII. Of the Lancaster line, her whole life was supposedly devoted to marrying the right men, making the right allies and putting her son on the throne of England where she believed he should be instead of the one of the Yorks. The War of the Roses is a fascinating time in English history, full of intrigue, extreme ambition and violence. According to this story, she fancied herself a sort of Joan of Arc of England who was chosen by God to put the rightful king on the throne. There's some doubt in my mind that at that point the Lancaster's claim was any stronger than the York's but it all came down to who could out maneuver the other. She believed she was on God's mission but never questioned if it was truly God's work or her own ego that drove her. In short, I got bored with her self-righteous attitude and found myself disliking her intensely.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "I couldn't stop listening"
    Overall

    I bought this book because it was a Nancy Pearl recommendation and it sounded intriguing. A post-apocalyptic story in which teenagers are chosen by lottery and forced to fight to the death? How could that be anything but depressing? The book was not at all what I was expecting. This is a great story with unforgettable and well-developed characters that looks what happens when the people with power do everything they can to force others into submission through fear and intimidation.
    In spite of everything that the main character goes through, she manages to retain her humanity and her sense of right and wrong. Part of what keeps Katniss on track is her relationship with her fellow competitor, Peeta whose kindness and devotion are so strong that Katniss it helps her see things more clearly. Although this book is intended for teenage readers, I found myself in love with the characters and hooked on this unusual coming of age story.
    Now I can't wait to see what happens in the next two books.

    On Prince Edward Island, aging siblings Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt a boy to help with chores around the farm. But when Mathew arrives at the train platform, the only living creature in sight, legs dangling from the piles of shingles where she sits, is a freckled, green-eyed, redheaded little girl. Mathew senses immediately that life at Green Gables is going to be very different. And how right he is.

    Catherine says: "kindred spirit"
    "One of my favorites"

    I love the Anne of Green Gables series and I really enjoyed listening to it again.

    Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

    meredith says: "Marred by background noise"
    "Heart-warming stories"
    Overall

    Even if you're not familiar with the BBC series or the book by the same name, you'll still enjoy these heart-warming animal stories. Taking place mainly during the 30's and 40's in Yorkshire, England, Herriot's descriptions of the characters he encounters -- both human and animal -- often make me laugh out loud or bring me to tears.

    This story is set against the backdrop of the conflict between Cromwell and the King of England, Charles I. It's one of the ultimate stories of yearning and devotion to a love that can never be.

    This mysterious tale is the best known and best loved of du Maurier's work. After honeymooning in Italy, the dashing Max de Winter returns to Manderley, his beautiful country estate, with his innocent young bride. But the unsettling presence of Rebecca (the first Mrs. de Winter) still lingers within the mansion's rooms and halls, and most of all in the persistent reminders from the grim housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers.

    Amazon Customer says: "Rebecca"
    "Great classic"
    Overall

    This is one of the best ever thrillers! This story has it's roots in Austen and Bronte and has been an influence on all romance stories that have followed it.

    Meet Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. Desperate for work, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, she cons her way into a job as an "apprehension agent" for a bail bondsman. This best selling debut earned Evanovich nominations for the Edgar, Anthony, Agatha, Shamus, and Macavity awards.

    Connie says: "Abridged......Left out so much!"
    "Introducing Stephanie Plum"
    Overall

    This is a really fun book to listen to. I wish there was an unabridged version. I also wish they would reissue this with a different reader. Lorelei King who does many of the later books is much better.

    "Love Stephanie Plum"
    Overall

    I not only enjoy reading about Stepanie Plum -- I also look forward to listening to the books on my iPod. It's fun to see where Stepanie started out in her relationships with Ranger, Morelli, Lula, etc. Lori Petty is not my favorite reader in the Plum series. Lorelei King is much better. Why no unabridged version for those of us who love Janet Evanovich?

    Stephanie Plum once again takes to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ, armed with attitude (not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her untrustworthy .38) to find Kenny Mancuso, who recently left the army, inadvertently shot his best friend, and is on the run in violation of a bond.

    Susan says: "Fun Fun Fun"
    "Fun story as always"
    Overall

    I really wish they would reissue this audio book in an unabridged version with a different reader. Lorelei King who narrates most of the books is far better than Lori Petty.
