    Story

    This wasn't what I expected it to be at all. The story began quite serenely then delved into deeper, troubled fields. An Irish family, the only boy among five sisters is trying to cope with pretty trying obstacles - bullying, terminal illness, first love, unwanted love. Give it a listen, it's well worth it.

    Dublin, 1984: Jim Finnegan is thirteen years old, the youngest in a family of five sisters. After a drunken yet delicate rendition of 'The Fields of Athenry' at a party, Jim captures both the attention of the beautiful Saidhbh Donohue and the unwanted desires of the devious Father O'Culigeen.

  • "Scots Whahey"

    Overall

    Another hidden gem here, not having had any interest in history, audible has further boosted my learning with this tale of two fellow Scots moving to Montana.

    We learn of their heartbreaking battles with the climate and the demands of mother nature on body and mind. Your dreamy picture of a sunny Montana is harshly sullied by the bleak depictions of the winters. A real eyeopener, you'll love it and its characters.

    Dancing at the Rascal Fair by National Book Award nominee Ivan Doig captures the passion and tenacity of turn-of-the-century immigrants struggling to build new lives amidst Montana's windswept Rockies. The tale unfolds into a contest of the heart between Anna Ramsay and Angus McCaskill-kept apart by obligations-as they and their stormy kin vie to tame the brutal land.

    Story

    This is my favourite listen of the year so far.

    We are introduced to the McCullough family and a narrator covers each generation with each chapter. I particularly enjoyed Will Patton's reading of Eli, the ten year old kidnapped by Commanche Indians. The thing I noticed was that we are always told how terribly the Native American Indians were treated, and this is pointed out here; but we are also shown how the Indians retaliated and this was pretty graphic and brutal.

    The story veers close to Dallas territory when oil is introduced, but luckily doesn't morph into soap opera theatrics. Give it a go and travel from 1840 to present day, you'll love it!

    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Love, honour, children are sacrificed in the name of ambition, as the family becomes one of the richest powers in Texas, a dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.
