    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    karen says: "Best audiobook of the year!"

    Overall

    Don't waste your credit on this one. I have read 2 other books written by Bryce Courtenay and this one was his worst-read the Power of One-You will not be disappointed!

    "WOW!"

    I love, love, love this book. Very inspiring and full of rich history. If you are a historical fiction buff, this book is for you-if you just love a great coming of age story, this book is for you, and if you love a good book, this book is for you!

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "I don't get it!"
    Overall

    The reviews for this series were amazing and I couldn't wait to download this book, however, I was bored silly! The main character is so dry and unlikable, I just could not finish it. I read somewhere this book was translated into English, maybe the "greatness" or hype of of the book was lost crossing the ocean.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Not up to par!"
    Overall

    I absolutely loved Pillars of the Earth. World without end -is a sad, sad, sequel. The villain is not as cruel and the characters are not as likable-it is almost a watered down version of the first. I made myself listen to this book,simply because I did not want to waste my credit!

    Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals - until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite Me.

    Jill says: "Entertaining story, as usual!"
    "Snooze!"
    Overall

    I couldn't get past the first three minutes! Don't waste your money on this one. Try a Dirty job or You suck! those are pretty funny and an easy read.

    Alternating between an America still cocooned in its inability to grasp the danger at hand and a Europe being torn apart by war, The Postmistress gives us two women who find themselves unable to deliver the news, and a third woman desperately waiting for news yet afraid to hear it. Sarah Blake's The Postmistress shows how we bear the fact that war goes on around us while ordinary lives continue. Filled with stunning parallels to today, it is a remarkable novel.

    Babs says: "Reasonably enjoyable, but too full of stereotypes"
    "DONT DO IT!"
    Overall

    I read both reviews and went ahead and purchased this book. It is NOT the help. I have attempted to read this book and was quickly confused by the characters metamorphosing into the other. I could not tell who was who until the names were used. I just did not get it. I adored the Help and was bored by the Postmistress. I have no idea if it gets better-I just could not get through the first 3 chapters- ( I had no idea when the chapters change). If I could get a refund-I would ask for double!

    Once there were great magicians born to the Maghuin Dhonn, the folk of the Brown Bear, the oldest tribe in Alba. But generations ago, the greatest of them all broke a sacred oath sworn in the name of all his people. Now, only small gifts remain to them. Through her lineage, Moirin possesses such gifts---the ability to summon the twilight and conceal herself, and the skill to coax plants to grow.

    Glen Gaines says: "The Kushiel series in order"
    "Boring!"
    Overall

    I honestly had to give this book one star. I tried listening to the first two downloads and I was bored stiff. The sexuality did not bother me as much as the reoccurring question of "What's the point"? As you listen, you really want something to take off and happen, and you end up listening to someone's life step by step, not that thrilling! If you are into eroticism , then this is your book!
