  • The Woman in White

    Walter Hartright, a drawing teacher to two sisters, wants to marry Laura, though she is betrothed to another. But who is the mysterious woman in white he encounters? Wilkie Collins was a master of suspense, but his transfer to audiobook requires a cast of readers to faithfully reflect the11 different characters who tell the story. Naxos AudioBooks brings together a strong cast to bring alive the mystery and suspense of The Woman in White.

    Would you listen to The Woman in White again? Why?

    Yes, possibly at some future point in the future once I have forgotten it enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I was enthralled with the narrator's voice, accent, and performance.
    The English setting of the story was appealing to me, as I much enjoy British both literature and an authentic British accent to carry it. Besides the intrigue following the mystery and the pathos in the romance, I also loved the preview into English culture and the like.

    (2756)

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    Would you listen to The Gathering Storm again? Why?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Egwene, Nynaeve, Tam


    Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Egwene


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Egwene bears all sacrificially and commitedly for the greater good through various specific instances; also when she later leads the defense against the invasion of the White Tower, and when she inspires the Tower at her inauguration to Amerlin


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. I can't stand how men (as opposed to women) are ceaselessly presented as foolish, stubborn, and incompetent.

    The cost of the audiobook is extremely above what would be reasonable. Audio books should be cheaper than music CD's, since typically there is only one (or a few) narrators. The amount for these new books in the Wheel of Time is downright scandalous.
