There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

wow , whatever you have just been reading, this will something completely different.
For once I had no idea at all what was going to happen in this story. Some people have compared this to the tv series lost , allthough I can understand why , I don't totally agree because this one makes much more sense.
It's intriguing and exciting throughout.
great narration .

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.

No

Any additional comments?

I was about half way into this story before I was sure that I didn't want to give up on it and wanted to know what was going to happen next. Dispite the fact that everyone else seems to love this tale I just didn't find the charm that others have.
This is one of the most depressing stories i have read .
The only positive point was the good narrator.

On the night of the State of the Union address, President James Allaire expects to give the speech of his career. But no one anticipates the terrifying turn of events that forces him to quarantine everyone in the Capitol building. A terrorist group calling itself “Genesis” has unleashed WRX3883, a deadly, highly contagious virus, into the building. No one fully knows the deadly effect of the germ except for the team responsible for its development—a team headed by Allaire, himself.

I am a huge Michael Palmer fan, the king of medical thrillers , so I very pleased to see AudibleUK has now got some more of his books.

Although I'm not at all a big fan of political books, I loved this one. As typical with all michael Palmer , it is a fast paced suspence novel that keeps you guessing throughout.

Danger and violence have always been part of Sue Dalston's East End upbringing. Unloved by her mother, abused by her father, and brutalised throughout her entire marriage, she smashed her husband's skull in a final act of desperation. All that keeps her sane knows that she's done it to protect her four children. At last, they are safe from harm. When she is celled up with murderess Matilda Enderby, their fates become inextricably linked. And no one - least of all Sue - could have predicted the consequences...

I felt that the discription of this book doesn't really discribe much about the true storyline of this book. But that said , I really enjoyed this book (if enjoy is the right word you can use about a book describing the abominable treatment of women !!!!) , this is Martina Cole when she's on form !!!

A different narrator to the other MC books , but Jacquelie King did a really good job.

I'm so glad audible have obtained more of Martina Coles older books , there have been a lot of them I've missed out on , I look forward to listening to them

A sweeping debut, perfect for reading groups and fans of Kate Morton and Downton Abbey - a beautiful and haunting story of lost innocence and a powerful, enduring love.Clarissa is almost seventeen when the spell of her childhood is broken. It is 1914, the beginning of a blissful, golden summer - and the end of an era. Deyning Park is in its heyday, the large country house filled with the laughter and excitement of privileged youth preparing for a weekend party.

I enjoy a good love story , but this one dragged on and on .... and really got on my nerves !!. A lot of the time nothing much going on, just moaning about how much she loved him bla bla bla
On Audible was advertized as being like Downton Abbey,(which I loved ) well it might have been set in the same era , but it was nowhere near as good otherwise. certainly did not live up to my expectations at all.

He is Dexter Mayhew, tall, dark, and (she can't deny it) handsome. She is Emma Morley, bottled red hair, wilfully badly dressed, all principles and no action. Could this be the dawn of the rest of their lives? Or are Dex and Em living proof that - despite an unlikely beginning - men and women really can be just good friends?
