Stella Ainsley leaves poverty behind when she quits her engineering job aboard the Stalwart to become a governess on a private ship. On the Rochester, there’s no water ration, more books than one person could devour in a lifetime, and an AI who seems more friend than robot. But no one warned Stella that the ship seems to be haunted, nor that it may be involved in a conspiracy that could topple the entire interstellar fleet.

The main reason I loved this book and story was the perfect combination of the remarkable talented narrative/narrator combined with a really skilled plot and a clever and original retelling of a classic Jane Eyre.
I have also to underline that everything settled in Space has a weaked spot on me, so this was just a perfect result in my personal taste.

A little note for the author though, I would have updated some technical devices to open the rooms doors on the sophisticated Rochester ship...

Nonetheless, I do recommend this book to everyone that had loved the ACROSS THE UNIVERSE trylogy by Beth Revis. I could just sense the influence this author got from that beautiful artwork so just give this book a try.

Fat Girl Walking is a collection of stories from my life, my thoughts about the issues that I have faced as a woman, wife, mom, daughter, daughter-in-law, and Internet personality in regards to my weight. I have tried to be as honest as I possibly could - apologies in advance to my husband and parents, but hopefully any discomfort you feel is quickly replaced by laughter.

One of the main reasons I wanted this book was because of the magnificent narrator, Lauren Fortgang, and because of the subject of this book, and I have to confirm that my expectations have been satisfied. Also I captured some very good and interesting ideas for what my future job would like to be...

Ms Bardugo is an exelent old fashioned writer and I loved all her previous Grisha books and this very talented narrator, Lauren Fortgang, brings to life these stories in a so enchanting and perfect narration.

So, the narrator's performance is remarkable, really great, as it's the writing... Ms Bardugo conjured a very capturing and original story, and when two talents like these two meet I find a perfect combination. Can't wait to listen to and read the following books in this series.

It's been months since Aden Colt left the army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a tiny boat off the California coast, he thought he'd found the perfect place to escape life. Then Sawyer shows up and turns his simple life upside down. Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laid-back beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can - including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk.

This is the second book I've read and listened to by this amazing author and this story confirmed and solidified my preference for JB Salsbury. She's a so talented writer and I love how she is capable to interlace the two MCs POV into the same chapter. This is a character I've found only with her books. The narrators are absolutely GREAT too, both of them and this book was a real pleasure to listen to and to read as well. I greatly recommend to get it.

I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I knew when I bought this audiobook that there was really something special about this story and I was just right.

This story did everything to me. Good plot, good sensual material, humor and right ending.

Zachary and Andi' s performance as narrators is just perfect in this story. As I've already told in other reviews, these two narrators are very talented but they need a really good story to read to match their wonderful skills and this story is just the case.

Well, this book was definitely on a lower level in my expectations. I didn't like it, I'm sorry. This was packed up with wedding cerimonies, some confused action, and wedding ceremonies again. I felt like reading and listening to a traditional fantasy world with some gross genetically modified creatures... and there was no closure in the end. I expected more and maybe something completely different. And I want to mention the real bad sound in most of the Rebecca Soler performance, I'm sorry.

In fifth grade my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. It didn't take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever. For the next seven years, it was us. She's the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

I can't emphasize enough how much I love this story and book.
I'd read the kindle edition of this story last year and I loved it so much I got the paperback copy short after that, and when I recently discovered they published the audible version as well, I just had to have that too.
Well the two narrators performance is GREAT, REMARKABLE, FLAWLESS and they made me enjoy this second time reading and listening so much better and in just the perfect way. Awesome narrators, great story, perfect combination of good writing and talented performers. This book will last in my heart forever.
