  • The Lion

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Nelson DeMille
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    John Robertson says: "What happened to Scott Brick?!!"
    "A Triple, Not a Home Run"

    DeMille is one of my favorite authors, Brick is my very favorite male narrator and John Corey is the type of guy I want to marry. And, yeah, I know he's a fictitious character. I found the book suspenseful. There are certain things we know will happen, but don't know how or when. The story brought home how 9/11 affected New Yorkers more than the rest of the country. While I did enjoy the book on the whole, there were aspects that bothered me. 1. It was never explained how Khalil knew about the skydiving appointment. I couldn't help but think that had to have been obtained from someone close to the Coreys. 2. In some parts, the book was very close to crossing the line between thriller and gore. But perhaps I'm just squeamish. 3. Brick's narration was inconsistent. After listening for a few minutes, I did check to see if it was Brick narrating. This one started out monotone, overwrought, with a cadence that annoyed me. It was as though Brick's voice had aged. But from time to time, his "regular" John Corey voice came through. 4. Corey's smartass remarks went a little too far, even for me. 5. Overboard on the unPC jokes. We get it, Corey is unPC. But it was a good enough story that I was able to enjoy the book and narration. It was like watching Albert Pujols at bat, anticipating a home run and settling for a solid base-hit.

  • Sheer Bliss: A Shapeshifter Erotic Romance: Love is Bliss, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 29 mins)
    • By Leigh Ellwood
    • Narrated By Charity McGowan

    From award-winning author Leigh Ellwood comes a wild and sexy tale about werewolves, were-panthers, and the women who love them.

    Living in Bliss, New Jersey has it perks, unless you're a shifter looking for love or a human looking for peace and quiet. Not only does Calla Savitch, owner of Shear Bliss salon, have to deal with warring panthers and werewolves with overlapping appointments, she's fed up with their constant matchmaking attempts. The last thing she wants, especially, is a hook-up with the one shifter who broke her heart years ago.

    Word Weaver says: "Narrator ruined the book"
    "Not Worth Your Time"
    What would have made Sheer Bliss: A Shapeshifter Erotic Romance better?

    Better narration. Worst one I've ever listened to.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Leigh Ellwood again?

    I don't know. The performance of the narrator was so awful that it adversely affected the storyline.

    What didn’t you like about Charity McGowan’s performance?

    Uninspiring; sounded like an adolescent. The narrator sounded like a 12 year old. It seemed the voice she used for Caleb was higher than the voice she used for the women. And I couldn't figure out what kind of accent she was trying to use for some of the women. Was that supposed to be "Jersey?"

  • Match Me If You Can: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    • Narrated By Anna Fields
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

    Daniela says: "Guilty Pleasure"

    I loved the combination of SEP and the narrator, Anna Fields. In a romance novel, you know what the ending is going to be; it's up to the writer to give you a good journey to that end, and SEP provides a good journey. I was left wanting to know what happens next with Annabel and Heath; and Portia and her guy (Cobie?). Ms. Fields did a great job of giving voice to the characters. During the parts when she was describing action and wasn't doing a voice, I often thought I might be listening to Ellen Degeneres. It is tricky for a female to do male voices, and vice versa, but she carried it off quite well.
