Audible presents a special edition of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde narrated by Richard Armitage. With Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Richard Armitage tells the story of a conflicted man who seeks a remedy to free the monster inside him from the clutches of his conscience. Following his celebrated performance of David Copperfield, Armitage delivers another powerhouse performance as the narrator of this Gothic tale.

I really enjoyed this book, it is a classic for a reason. Well worth your time, also so interesting to listen to this book and contrast it with the pop-culture version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It is not a long book, and the language is heightened, I needed to look up a lot of vocabulary words, amazing how watered down language is now a days. Richard Armitage gave an amazing narration, his rendition of Mr. Hyde put chills up my spine! Seriously, worth listening too just to hear his reading. This book has really stayed with me. I am now looking to find more books that Richard Armitage narrates because he is so good.

TV actor Charles Keating provides superb narratives of "Araby", "Eveline", and "Counterparts" from Joyce's brilliant collection of stories, rich with memorable characters and displaying his genius for the subtleties and nuances of language.

Anytime you can listen to a performance of a book which is read by the great Charles Keating it is a must. The fact that Charles is of Irish dissent makes this the most brilliant performance of James Joyce the Dubliners.

Following in the footsteps of the greatest Spanish adventurers, Michael Wood retraces the path of the conquistadors from Amazonia to Lake Titicaca, and from the deserts of North Mexico to the heights of Machu Picchu. As he travels the same routes as Hernán Cortés, Francisco, and Gonzalo Pizarro, Wood describes the dramatic events that accompanied the epic sixteenth-century Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires.

Brillantly written, a fascinating and comprehensive explanation of the discovery of the Americas by the unique group of men known as the conquistadors. What has seem to me always cold and factual history was brought to live in startling and compelling detail. When I was done with it I immediately play the book again and then planned a trip to Mexico to see what was highlighted in the book on the subject of the Aztecs
