    Story
    (2100)

    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    Story

    I loved this story, but for much of the time I was struggling to understand two of the narrators. There is no reason that I can think of that multiple narrators were even needed. It added nothing to the story. In fact, the difficulty that I had in understanding the heavily accented English often detracted from the story. Get this one in print and enjoy (and understand) every word.

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Story
    (4187)

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Story

    I called Audible. She couldn't tell me exactly which chapters were missing, but she said the missing parts were in Part III. That's the part I'm listening to now. I did notice that right in the middle of a story line about the Gregory Peshcov's son I was all of a sudden hearing about Chuck Dewar in Hawaii for a sentence or two and them back to Russia. I guess I'll just listen to the entire Part III again.

    If you're reading this, Audible folks, it would have been helpful to have been told exactly what and where the missing parts were.
