Barbara Caruso brings another book to life!

Caruso makes it extra special! She brought my old friends back to life and I found myself lingering to listen instead of getting out of bed right away. The Campbell family were great fun to re-visit. A nice treat!

This has become one of my favorites!

I love this book—Dick Francis gets into the whodunnit territory here when a skeleton is found. I like the main character a lot who is trying to write a sequel to a novel. Previously he had been writing “How to Survive” in various travel destinations. I love the interactions and dynamics going on between the circle of friends. Will the untoward happenings cause irreparable damage to the close knit circle of friends? You’ll need to listen to find out! 😁

At LAST an audio version of this Anne book!!!!

I was so thrilled to FINALLY find this Anne of Green Gables title released into audio! I thought the narrator did a good job and brought this favorite to life for me quite well. I liked that this book was written as letters Anne wrote to Gilbert while she was a principal at a school and Gilbert was in medical collage. I will definitely listen to this again and again!

Mountain girl's can protect themselves!

I enjoy this departure from L'Amour's manly man heroes. The main character here is 16 year old Echo Sackett. She sets off to go get an inheritance for her family. Someone doesn't want her to make it home alive!

My all time favorite time travel story!

I love Paul Hecht's narration and the whole premise of this story. I listen to it once or twice a year. I like the time travel paradox it just touched on and how he helps make things right at the end....in itself a change with who knows how many ripples felt it? I like that Sy ended up with Julia and decided to live in her time.

A Revisit of a Childhood Favorite!

I was excited to find this childhood favorite in Audible's catalog! I enjoyed listening to it. I enjoyed the narrator's regular reading voice, but didn't like the southern accents she put on for the characters voices. It wasn't how I imagined Polly, Fanny, Tom or anyone else talked. Sometimes it was a stronger accent than others and I even became so irritated at times that I stopped listening and switched to a different book for a while to give my ears a rest. I did finish listening and still love the story very much!

Loved this book!

I really enjoyed this book! I was skeptical at first if I'd be able to finish it, but it was not just facts about how to be a food critic, but a truly engaging story that I loved. I was disappointed when it came to an end. My Mom also has listened to this book, and enjoyed it as much as I did. I want more adventures! I also enjoyed the narrator's reading, she did a masterful job, and helped pull me in as well.

Another Dick Francis Great!

I'm a Dick Francis Fan, so seeing so many more added to the store has just made me so happy! This title I hadn't read until just last month, so seeing Audible has it, was great! I love Tony Britton's voice, and this story, while not completely on a racing incident, had racing peripherally in the story line. I loved the story of Ian reconciling with his father, and then learning about his zany family added to this one's charm. As to who was trying to kill Ian's father, it had me guessing til the end. For one to enjoy cuddled up maybe even with a friend, you can't go wrong with this book!

Fun, 20's era mystery-I love Daisy Dalrymple

I just discovered this fun series this past winter. I actually started with one of the later ones in the series and fell in love with Daisy Dalrymple! This series, set in the 20's reminds me a bit of the Jeeves and Wooster books, which I also love. The "By Jingo's," "Old Bean" and other such expressions make this a very enjoyable listen! This book is just introducing all the characters and each successive book adds more details, so you keep wanting more of Daisy's exploits. So far Blackstone Audio has agreed to do the first 4 in this series, and I hope they decide to do all of them. For a great change of pace in your listening routine, you won't go wrong with this book! Sit back, relax, and meet the irrepresible Daisy and all her chums.

Light hearted and fun!

I remember reading this when I was young and have enjoyed sharing it with kids as I've gotten older. Who can resist Mrs. Piggle Wiggle? She's the "fairy godmother" all kids dream of at one time or other. Who would love going to an upside down house where you can hunt for treasure, bake cookies, or do any of the other delightful things the kids do at Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's. Would be great for a family road trip!
