This is one of the few books I've listened to that I wouldn't repeat. In fact, my iPod turned on in my bag and I missed a bit. I didn't go back. I expected the pace to be equivalent to Muybridge's motion studies and Stanford's horses. Unfortunately, for me, the text plodded. The book was interesting though.
The Gamache series is one of my favorites. These books are some of the best written I've run across. They are obviously written for the more intelligent reader, but they aren't condescending - there is something here for everyone and Book 9 is no exception. I started out reading this series, but then got tuned into Ralph Cosham's narration and haven't turned back. There's a wonderful marriage here with his reading and Penny's text. I hope this isn't the end of the series. I think I saw a crack of light leaving a chance of more.
The Great Gatsby has always been one of my favorite stories and the performance by Jake Gyllenhaal blew me away - this version is my new favorite. I already thought the story was outstanding, but the performance is as well.
