I really enjoyed this book. The writing style was fast paced and kept the twists and turns interesting. I was pleased that it wasn't too soap-box preachy about the environment, because that gets real old REAL fast! I usually am not a fan of Mr. Brick as a narrator, but he was less overly-dramatic for this performance and his narration fit well with this story line. I look forward to book 2 (Leap)!

He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

This was a gloriously unexpected story written by an author that I had burnt out on years ago. The style was refreshing and the characters were filled out with a poetic grace that delighted me. I strongly encourage anyone to indulge in this book, especially since the narrator lends even more enjoyment to the experience.

I have not read or listened to much on this period of French/ English history, but this makes me eager for more. The author captivated me from the outset with his flowing illustration of life, love and war amongst the people of France and England. The narrator was an absolute PERFECT choice, and enriched and already wonderful creation. On to the next book!

Love hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, and teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol, and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame, and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that's where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realizing that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end.

This story is in the "ok" category, and the narrator does massive damage to the audio version. She is a reader, not an actor, a pause-in-the-wrong-place type, and does not vary her characters much. It's also hard to get a sense of place, since this is a Welsh story told by a slow reading (painfully slow at times) American with zero attempt at an accent. This makes for a serious disconnect when hearing colloquial phrases and terms. The editing is slightly lacking...mispronounced words, slurred or missed words, stress on the wrong words, and awkward hesitations on top of a strange and unlikely plot development were tough to listen to. The story had potential, but most of it dissolved by the middle of the book and was hastily strapped together in a vain attempt to end on a solid note. The irrationality of the main character's belief systems works against her to the point that she's unlikable.

On a sunny May morning in 1998 in Cortez, Colorado, three desperados in a stolen truck opened fire on the town cop, shooting him 20 times; then they blasted their way past dozens of police cars and disappeared into 10,000 square miles of the harshest wilderness terrain on the North American continent. Self-trained survivalists, the outlaws eluded the most sophisticated law enforcement technology on the planet and a pursuit force that represented more than 75 local, state, and federal police agencies with dozens of SWAT teams, U.S. Army Special Forces....

I was a newlywed when this occurred, but I still can't imagine that I had never heard of this crime spree. What a tragic episode for so many people...a whole community. It's unsettling that there are still so many unanswered questions and inconsistencies in the resulting investigations. I liked the way the author organized the information and presented it, speculating in a straightforward and logical manner only when necessary. The narrator was perfect for this type of book-keeping the listener engaged and not becoming a droning background voice.

From the author of the international best seller The Stone Man, short-listed for Audible UK's Book of the Year Award 2015. Here are the rules. Method: you can't use a gun. You can't use explosives. You can't use poison. It has to be up close and personal. You don't have to worry about leaving evidence; that will be taken care of. Victim: no one suicidal. No one over the age of 65. No one with a terminal illness. Choose your method. Choose your victim.

It's 1952, and Jasper isn't allowed to ask questions or make a fuss. He's lucky to even have a home and must keep his mouth shut and his ears open to stay in his uncle's good graces. No one knows where his mother went or whether she's coming back. Desperate to see her again, he must take matters into his own hands. From the farm, he embarks on a treacherous search that will take him to the squalid hideaways of Detroit and back again, through tawdry taverns, peep shows, and gambling houses.

This was a little slow to start, but the writing style and character development is flawless. The mystery and intrigue surrounded by the grief and confusion of a young boy thrust into an adult world was brilliant. The narrator is fantastic!
