    "Impossible to abridge Katherine Neville's books"

    I read "The magic Circle" and it certainly is a FIVE STAR book. But abridging Neville's books is impossible. Looking forward for an unabridged version of this audio-book.

    Librarian, reader, commuter. I got tired of the radio and CDs and switched to audio books. Now I listen to books while I quilt, clean, etc

    "Tangled Pedigree and a Thrilling adventure"
    Any additional comments?

    I had read this book when it first came out and this time listened to it as an audiobook. Ariel Behn comes from a rich, accomplished family with many different talents and incredibly tangled pedigrees. When her cousin Sam is killed, she inherits a great deal of money and documents from most of her disparate and far flung relatives. All of which puts her in immediate danger.

    This is a book of international travel, complex relationships, ancient manuscripts, and tangled puzzles. The audio book narrator is very good. I must confess after listening to almost all as English actors, adjusting to an American one was a challenge. She was very, very good, doing male, female and accented voices with verve. It was a pleasure to listen to.
