    Story

    From master storyteller Bryce Courtenay comes a colorful, lusty story set in the 13th century, an epic tale of a Europe torn by religious intolerance. The story centers around Sylvia Honeyeater, who sings like an angel and can literally charm the birds from the trees. The narrative also features the Pied Piper of Hamelin, Francis of Assisi, the Muslim Sultan and his harem, and the fervor that becomes the Children's Crusade and then, later, the Crusades.

    G. stone says: "a departure for Bryce"
    "A really good read."

    The fact that Sylvia kept questioning herself regarding her performance.

    The Pied Piper of Hamlin. He was Sylvia's constant support who did not judge what she did.


    Have you listened to any of Edwina Wren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

  • A Darkness More than Night: Harry Bosch Series, Book 7

    Story
    (1002)

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Aaron says: "Terrific Pairing of Connelly's best Detectives."
    "No change."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they haven't read one of these stories, it's a good read. Otherwise the story line is a little predictable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make the main character less perfect.


    Did Barbara Rosenblat do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    By using different voices, well doine!


    Could you see The Curse of the Pharaohs being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes and don't know.

    Story
    (247)

    It is 1943 - the height of the Second World War. With the men taken by the army, Berlin has become a city of women. And while her husband fights on the Eastern Front, Sigrid Schröder is, for all intents and purposes, the model soldier's wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime. But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman who dreams of her former Jewish lover.

    Susianna says: "Just Fine But My High Expectations? Foiled Again!"
    "Thought provoking, can relate to the women."

    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Women to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way that women fought to survive no matter of their belief, race or religion.


    What about Suzanne Bertish’s performance did you like?

    Yes, She was able to feel how the women felt in the story.


    If you could rename City of Women, what would you call it?

    Survival of Women in Berlin


    Any additional comments?

    Very thought provoking. Helped me to relate to my family in Holland during WWII.
