  • A Rose for Her Grave - and Other True Cases: Ann Rule's Crime Files, Book 1

    "A Rose for Her Grave" - the principal story of this collection - vividly recreates the cautionary tale of Randy Roth, a misogynistic sociopath from the Pacific Northwest whose rage was directed primarily at women and children. Addicted to his own greed, Roth exercised a powerful aura of control over his victims, using his ability to charm and boyish good looks to lower their defenses. By the time they saw the reality of the madness in his eyes, it was usually too late.

    What disappointed you about A Rose for Her Grave - and Other True Cases?

    The narrator usually sounded automated. I couldn't even finish the book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

    No. Never.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Ann Rule books but I could not listen to this narrator. I love audio books but this is the only time I have ever not finished listen to it because of the person narrating.

  • The Book Thief

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 56 mins)

    Story
    (6882)

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Amazon Customer says: "Word Thief"
    "Wonderful book in every way."

    Where does The Book Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best by far.


    What about Allan Corduner’s performance did you like?

    It really was a performance and not simply reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes even though I could not.


    Any additional comments?

    Not only was the book a touching story, the narrating was outstanding. I felt as if I was there with Leisel. I will read and listen to this book again and have already recommended it to others.
