    Near the beginning of The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow lays his cards on the table. "People think that because I am against the death penalty and don't think people should be executed, that I forgive those people for what they did. Well, it isn't my place to forgive people, and if it were, I probably wouldn't. I'm a judgmental and not very forgiving guy. Just ask my wife."

  • Sarum: The Novel of England

    Story

    In Sarum, Edward Rutherfurd weaves a compelling saga of five English families whose fates become intertwined over the course of centuries. While each family has its own distinct characteristics, the successive generations reflect the changing character of Britain. We become drawn not only into the fortunes of the individual family members, but also the larger destinies of each family line.

    Story

    The book, yes. The recording, no. The story skipped backwards and forwards so many times that I simply couldn't keep track of the story line nor the characters. It seemed that as soon as I became comfortable with the story and began to make the connections between the characters and the generations, the recording would jump backwards. After multiple attempts to ride it out and rising frustration, I simply stopped caring.

    I am a voracious Audible listener and this is the first (and hopefully last) time I have encountered these issues.
