    Salman Rushdie holds the literary world in awe with a jaw-dropping catalog of critically acclaimed novels that have made him one of the world's most celebrated authors. Winner of the prestigious Booker of Bookers, Midnight's Children tells the story of Saleem Sinai, born on the stroke of India's independence.

    Lyndam Gregory was born to do this performance. it is truly extraordinary. He captures the essence of India, the characters, the time, the wonder and the magic of this incredible book. It was a joy to listen to each day, and I felt very sad when it was over. It was like saying goodbye to intimate friends. Congratulations to Mr. Gregory for a tour de force performance.

    Story

    This is a long book but it grabbed me right from the start - and it doesn't let up. McCammon's impeccable historical research doesn't get in the way of a gripping page-turner. It's a murder mystery, but it's more than that - it's about the politics and the underbelly of a small frontier community.Ultimately though it's a love story, a wonderful and unpredictable love story. The narration by Edoardo Ballerini is superb - he captures all the nuances of the characters beautifully and he doesn't rush the read. I am recommending this book to all my friends. And I now want to read more of McCammon. He is a terrific storyteller.

And two inquisitive boys standing precariously on the brink of adulthood will soon discover the secret of the satanic raree-show's mazes and mirrors, as they learn all too well the heavy cost of wishes and the stuff of nightmares.

    Story

    I read this book many many years ago and was disappointed with this recording. The narrator was flat and didn't bring Bradbury's poetry to life. There was not enough delineation in his characters as well. It's such a classic book, audible.com should re-record it with a better narrator. Sorry guys.

    Based in part on Dickens's own life, it is the story of a young man's journey from an unhappy and impoverished childhood to the discovery of his vocation as a successful novelist. Among its gloriously vivid cast of characters, he e.ncounters his tyrannical stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; his formidable aunt, Betsey Trotwood; the eternally humble yet treacherous Uriah Heep; the frivolous, enchanting Dora; and one of literature's great comic creations, the magnificently impecunious Mr. Micawber.

    Simon Vance was born to do Dickens. And his performance here is truly extraordinary. He captures the essence of the writer, the characters, the time. I felt very sad when I finished listening to the book. It was like saying goodbye to intimate friends. Congratulations to Mr. Vance for a tour de force performance.
