    An Italian village on a hilltop near the Adriatic coast, a decaying palazzo facing the sea, and in the basement, cobwebbed and dusty, lit by a single bulb, an archive unknown to scholars. Here, a young graduate student from Rome, Francesca Cappelletti, makes a discovery that inspires a search for a work of art of incalculable value, a painting lost for almost two centuries.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no one. This is just a listing of boring case histories. It doesn't really provide instructional info. I can't stand to listen to this. This has got to be just about the worst audiobook I've ever bought. I love Edgar Cayce, but this is just a monotonous regurgitation of readings. I want my money back.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kevin J. Todeschi again?

    never!


    What three words best describe David Hartley Margolin’s voice?

    very nice voice


    What character would you cut from Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records Audio Book?

    the author

    From the moment she's struck by lightening as a baby, it is clear that Mary Anning is marked for greatness. On the windswept, fossil-strewn beaches of the English coast, she learns that she has "the eye"-and finds what no one else can see. When Mary uncovers an unusual fossilized skeleton in the cliffs near her home, she sets the religious fathers on edge, the townspeople to vicious gossip, and the scientific world alight.

    Absolutely. The writing and story are wonderful.

    The interesting topic, story line and focus on women in history.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Tracy Chevalier is one of the 21st Century's best writers. She is amazing. Her other books have been a bit depressing due to the subject matter, but I didn't find this one to be!

    From village feasts and rustic tavernas to ancient piazzas and moonlit balconies, the smells, tastes, sounds, and soul of Umbria come alive in Marlena de Blasi's evocative memoir. By turns romantic and sensual, joyous and celebratory, touching and humorous, Marlena de Blasi's account of moving with her husband, Fernando, to Orvieto, the largest city in Italy's Umbria, will appeal to anyone who delights in travel and shares the fantasy of beginning a new life in a very different place.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story line could be better. I found it depressing!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marlena de Blasi again?

    no


    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    Did anyone EVER listen to this who speaks Italian??? There were many errors in the pronunciation of Italian words. I couldn't believe it! It was so unprofessional!

    More than one person needs to read different characters. I find it irritating otherwise.


    Any additional comments?

    hard to believe a book on life in Italy could be uninspiring!

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    What would have made I've Got Your Number better?

    This story has a lot of potential, but it just dragged on. The main character seemed like she was in junior high school...so immature emotionally. The book went on and on about emails. It needs a lot of editing and the plot needs sprucing up. The characters need more development.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sophie Kinsella again?

    probably not


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It's hard for one person to do many roles. More than one person should be reading several characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the movie, Confessions of a Shop-a-holic, so I thought I would enjoy this book. Perhaps her other works are good, but I don't want to risk spending money on it.

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.
