Love the book...but not the reader

3 out of 5 stars

I LOVE all of Michael Connely's books, especially the Harry Bosch series and was thrilled when they got some of the older books onto I have listened to the first six which were narraged by Dick Hill and they are fantastic. You feel the characters, the grit. This reader is really boring compared to him. I can hardly tell when it is Harry talking or one of the other people. I am really disappointed! It is not so awful that I want to turn it off, but I probably wouldn't buy it again...would just read this one the old fashioned way.

In 1949, four Chinese women drawn together by the shadow of their past begin meeting in San Francisco to play Mah Jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and "say" stories. Nearly 40 years later, one of the members has died, and her daughter has come to take her place, only to learn of her mother's lifelong wish and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation of this secret unleashes an urgent need among the women to reach back and remember.

I have waited a long time for this to come out in the unabridged format and still love the book...but thought Amy Tan did a much better job of narration! (She does the abridged version). Still very happy that this is out, and it is enjoyable.

Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

I LOVE these books! Davina Porter is AMAZING and brings all the characters to life in this series. I listen to them about once a year and cannot wait to have them ALL on my ipod (right now they are on tapes...ugh!) You will not be disappointed (as long as you get the UNABRIDGED won't want to miss a minute of this story!)

Hurry up Audible...I already need the next one!
