Swing audiobook cover art

Grab this one at the highest resolution

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-01-05

The music will make you want high quality audio to match the high quality mystery.

A minor nit is that I'd like for the narrator to slow down a bit; leave some pauses for dramatic enhancement, but that's not even enough to cost a star.

I hope we see more multimedia novels of this quality. The somgs are a part of the story, not just extra production.

Land of Echoes audiobook cover art

Not equal to City of Masks, but OK

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-13-05

I felt this was not well plotted. It was hard to stay focused as the plot seemed to wander a bit while the author tried to work out the details. I loved City of Masks, and Land of Echoes was allright so I'll certainly grab the next Cree Black book I see, but I wish this had been better written and better edited.

Even so, it was worth the download.

City of Masks audiobook cover art

A promising start to a new series

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-13-05

Engaging characters, and an interesting plot. I look forward to more Cree Black. I did find it frustrating that there seems to be a lot going on "behind the scenes" so to speak. Ed and Joyce need to be fully developed and the back story better explained. It read more like a middle-of-the-series book rather than first-in-a-series.

So B. It audiobook cover art

Exquisitely written; perfectly read

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

I've had "So B. It" on my wish list for months, based simply on the intriguing description. Now I am only sorry I didn't get it sooner just so I could tell more people how wonderful it is. The story is almost magical in its beauty and the narration only enhances that beauty. According to other sources this is a book written for young people, ages 9-12, but I have grandchildren older than that! This is a story written for all ages. I normally choose audiobooks of epic length, often in the mystery or thriller categories, or non-fiction in a variety of fields, but "So B. It" could equally be classified as mystery, thriller, chick-lit or self-improvement, not to mention children's literature. Truly a story for all ages, to be read over and over again. Soof!

This is destined to be a classic. Sarah Weeks, more, please!
