    It's 1952 and the Scott family has just moved from Los Angeles to London. Here, fourteen-year-old Janie meets a mysterious apothecary and his son, Benjamin Burrows - a fascinating boy who's not afraid to stand up to authority and dreams of becoming a spy. When Benjamin's father is kidnapped, Janie and Benjamin must uncover the secrets of the apothecary's sacred book, the Pharmacopoeia.

    Excellent character distinctions, good accents.

    What disappointed you about Blood Rites?

    I didn't like that the book centered around a pornography mogul. Once I got to that bit, I didn't care to hear any more.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Butcher again?

    Probably nothing in this genre.


    Did James Marsters do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I would probably enjoy him more if it had been a different book


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    nope.

  • Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

    Would you listen to Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 again? Why?

    Like the Potter series, there's a lot of little details in the first book that may or may not be pertinent in the books to come. The story line was only just beyond the edge of disbelief, so that it was plausible without being


    Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favorite?

    All of them! He did an excellent job!


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

    Yup! Started it in the early afternoon, thinking I would just listen until dinner... ended up dragging my player to the kitchen so I could keep listening while fixing dinner. Begrudgingly turned off to eat dinner. Started up again after getting kiddos to bed and finished up the whole thing! So fun!

  • Outlander

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

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

    A good story would've helped.


    What could Diana Gabaldon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Rewritten it.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was better than the book, If given a better book to read, I think she would've been quite nice to listen to.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I stopped listening to the book part way through because it was so bad. It left me feeling like I'd just wasted my time.

    The Whippet Hotel is a strange place full of strange and mysterious people. Each floor has its own quirks and secrets. Leo should know most of them - he is the maintenance man's son, after all. But a whole lot more mystery gets thrown his way when a series of cryptic boxes are left for him... boxes that lead him to hidden floors, strange puzzles, and unexpected alliances. Leo had better be quick on his feet, because the fate of the building he loves is at stake... and so is Leo's own future!
