Another Audible 3 for 2 Sale
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie,Hugh Fraser,HarperCollins Publishers Limited
Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. - Ron Chernow,Grover Gardner,Inc. Blackstone Audio
Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford - Clint Hill,Lisa McCubbin,Simon & Schuster Audio,George Newbern

What a strangely diverse group of books I have ended up with! But at least I found three titles; sometimes I find nothing in the sale pile. We start with what I know is going to be one of those deep tomes; at 35 hours long how can it be anything but--and it is Chernow so it will be well done. Then an Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot story, which at least I know that even if it is a comparatively light read, it will be a well written and well crafted. And then there is the bit of fluff, which is what I am sure I will get when a retired Secret Service agent and his not quite ghost writer start dishing up on Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Carter.

5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior - Boya Sun,Matt Rockefeller,Xanthe Bouma,Mark A. Siegel,Alexis Siegel

In true Ghibli-style artwork, every turn of a page reveals a brilliant new set of colors. This would make a stunning animated film, maybe Studio Ponoc could do it or Dreamworks based on their amazing CG sand work in Rise of the Guardians. It was a little difficult at first to get into the story with so many different words unique to this universe thrown about and there is so much put in bold that if it's supposed to be the character's emphasizing all of them in one speak bubble, it makes the dialogue sound off. There was a lot of that, but the artwork - for me - makes up for it, it's a graphic novel and a wonderfully crafted one at that. Can't wait to read the second volume!

Catherine de Valois (The Legendary Women of World History) (Volume 2) - Laurel A. Rockefeller

I read this as part of Renaissance Queens by Laurel A Rockefeller while listening to the audiobook version. I enjoyed listening to the telling of Catherine's life. The song as sung by the narrator was very enchanting. I found this book very informative with the facts in between the story. This is a time period I really enjoy.

I was given the audiobook as a gift and without solicitation leave this review.

Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.
Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. - Ron Chernow Okay, not amazing. Really fascinating topics but author is enamored of his chosen narratives in a really blatant and sometimes distracting way. Also reads like a long, very rambling account- needed more editorial attention to pacing, etc.
