Charles Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, has moved into Netherfield Park manor, which causes much excitement in the village of Longbourn, especially among the five unmarried daughters of the Bennet household. Despite many romatic complications, the overall tone of this classic novel is, as Jane Austen described it, “light and bright, and sparkling”.

In college, Griffin McCray and his four best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore PD.

I enjoyed the story line, however, the unusual names of the characters made it confusing sometimes. I can't help but wonder if I had actually read a physical but I might have enjoyed it a little bit more. It was still a very good read!

Anna Leonowens, a proper Englishwoman, was an unlikely candidate to change the course of Siamese (Thai) history. A young widow and mother, her services were engaged in the 1860's by King Mongkut of Siam to help him communicate with foreign governments and be the tutor to his children and favored concubines.

This is been a fascinating story to listen to. I find it very interesting to hear about such a foreign almost alien culture with such detail. Very different from the movie, of course, but still so hard to put down. The plight of Tuptim, who is actually portrayed in the movie, is so different and given here in tragic detail. So many people, within and without the palace, who Anna Leonowens tried to help, and Prince Chulalongkorn, one of many of the royal children that she taught, had such an impact on the future Siam. It is a wonderful read.

Eugenides, no stranger to desperate circumstances, has gotten himself into difficulties he can't get out of. Used to being treated with a certain measure of wariness, if not respect, he suffers the pranks, insults, and intrigue of the Attolian court with dwindling patience. As usual, nothing is as it appears when he rescues a hot-headed young soldier in the Palace Guard.

Writing was great, narration was FANTASTIC! Another home run and great series! I loved all three books and recommend them to anyone who likes stories about fight bad guys, blowing things up, saving the day with a huge dose of humor thrown in! This is the book for you. and Bronson Pinchot is the best narrator I've EVER had the pleasure of listening to. Thank you, Bronson, for hours of listening pleasure!
