    In the final volume of The Berrybender Narratives, Tasmin and her family are under arrest in Mexican Santa Fe. Tasmin, who would once have followed her husband anywhere, is no longer even sure she likes him, or where to go next. Captain Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame, is puzzled by the great changes sweeping over the West, replacing red men and buffalo with towns and farms.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this saga, all four books. McMurtry did not disappoint with great characters, tying in historical characters and events, and bringing the harsh reality of the frontier to life. Alfred Molina was perfect as well. I'm just sorry it's done.

    Headstrong Angelica Cynster is certain she'll recognize her fated husband at first sight. And when her eyes meet those of a mysterious nobleman, she knows beyond a doubt that he's the one. But her heart is soon pounding for an entirely different reason - when her hero abducts her! The eighth Earl of Glencrae has no choice but to kidnap Angelica, the one Cynster sister with whom he hadn't wanted to tangle. But to save his castle and his clan, he must persuade her to assist him - and he's prepared to offer marriage to seal the deal!

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy with this final book being the best, mainly because there was so much more of the Laird in this book. I would liked to have heard it narrated by Simon Prebble. I did like the soft Scottish brogue Matthew Brenher gave to the Laird in the first two books but then he never used it in the third book, even after they returned to Scotland. Even worse, the original Cynsters all sounded completely different than their original voices as established by Simon Prebble. Very disconcerting. But even so, I'll be listening to it again.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    I'd already read the book twice so I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend hours listening to it. It was on sale so I decided to give it a try. It was just as great as I remembered and it had been long enough since I read it for me to enjoy all the details. John Lee did a great job of bringing the characters to life. Now on to World Without End. I've only read that once!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    I've tried twice to listen to this book, but I just can't seem to stick with it. The plot just doesn't move along. The narration is so-so and that may be part of the problem.
