    Once a Knight of the Realm, Crispin Guest was stripped of his title and his lands and now must earn his living with his wits. In various corners of late fourteenth-century London, Guest has become known as the Tracker, a man who can solve any puzzle or find any missing object - for a price. Because of that reputation, Guest is sought out by Nicholas Flamel, a famed alchemist. Both Flamel's wife and his apprentice are missing, and he wants Guest to find them and bring them home.

    Yes, there is so much depth you miss some of the customs of that era. The performance is outstanding also.

    The end when he gets his sword.


    What about Michael Page’s performance did you like?

    You really believe and can picture each character as he voices them. Excellent job.


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

    Oh yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Where does Big Little Lies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a really good read. I usually don't like modern settings but this was very enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The revolving of the story around the school. Having taught primary for 40 years I had to laugh and nod many times..


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    I think she did Ziggy wonderfully.


    If you could take any character from Big Little Lies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Madeline, what a hoot.


    Any additional comments?

    This would have been a great summer read for teachers on summer break. Too many are already back in school and won't have time to read or listen for a while.

    After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.
