    Longfellow's great narrative poem has been unjustly neglected in recent years though it gives a sympathetic portrait especially of Hiawatha, reared by Nokomis, daughter of the Moon, and his bride Minehaha.

    Doris says: "More fascinating than I expected"
    "Outstanding Reading"
    Overall

    This has always been one of my favorite works. The audiobook is an absolutely wonderful listening experience. If you're a Longfellow fan, don't hesitate to buy this!

    Long ago and far away...There was a castle. But not just any castle. This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona.

    "Sharon Creech weaves an enchanting story"
    Overall

    Sharon Creech has created a truly old-fashioned fairy tale with The Castle Corona. In it we learn of the orphan peasants Pia and Enzio and how their lives become interwoven with those of royalty. An old genre has been brought back to life. You will not be able to stop listening to this book!

  • The Diana Chronicles

    In The Diana Chronicles, you will meet a formidable female cast and understand as never before the society that shaped them: among them, Diana's sexually charged mother, her bad-girl sister-in-law, Fergie, and, most formidable of them all, her mother-in-law, the Queen. Add Camilla Parker-Bowles, the ultimate "other woman" into this combustible mix, and it's no wonder that Diana broke out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect.

    Chris says: "Privileged people behaving badly"
    "Horrible Audio Quality"
    Overall

    This is an interesting book, although the one by Sarah Bradford is better. I was extremely disappointed in the audio quality of this book. There is an echo and the narrator sounds like she's in a tunnel. I expected much better for the price.

    Most people know this book from the Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Winona Ryder. Now, introduce them to the sparkling American classic behind the movie: a charming portrait of the joys and hardships of the four sisters in Civil War New England. Separated by the war from their beloved parents, these "little women" struggle to find their place in the world.

    Nina says: "definitely worth a listen"
    "Glad I waited for this release!"
    Overall

    What a wonderful reading by Barbara Caruso! She brings this book to life. I almost bought the other unabridged version, but I held out for another one to be released--and I'm glad I did! This reading is so much better. If you love Little Women, don't hesitate to buy this.

    Readers everywhere have become entranced by the New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, from acclaimed author and award-winning wit Alexander McCall Smith. Each charming book in the series is a masterpiece of comic subtlety and a window for viewing the distinctive culture and landscape of Botswana.

    Nancy says: "Great Listen"
    "Best in a Wonderful Series"
    Overall

    I love all of these books, but "In the Company of Cheerful Ladies" is my favorite. Read it and you'll know why. A character like Mma Ramotswe hasn't come along for a while!
