In 1914, the war which was to have been wrapped up by Christmas had - in reality - only just begun, as all sides entrenched themselves deeper into the Great War. Christmas Eve, 1914 follows one company of British officers as they rotate forward to spend their Christmas on the front lines, a mere 80 yards from the German guns. Upper- and working-class men and boys are thrown together into one trench and struggle to survive.

I have always loved audio stories whether old time radio or the rendition of a good book. This dramatization of the Christmas truce of 1914 is bittersweet leaving one with both a feeling of loss and a feeling of hope. I am so glad Audible created this story; I will likely play this for Cristmas guests for many years to come.

The ghost that haunts Canterville Chase has built a marvelous career of midnight haunting. But when an American family moves in, they simply have no respect for permanent bloodstains, nightmarish chains, or ancient legends. They even throw pillows at him.

Enjoyable short audio of the classic Wilde story; decent reading but with the typical Audible dropped words at the beginning of every chapter.
