    The only one I have listened to is Elizabeth George’s The Punishment She Deserves–and whole- heartedly agree- the reading was SUPERB–and I have listened to them over the years with different narrator, Glad she has found another great reader!

    Thank you! Love Libro!

    I might have to dive into the Elizabeth George. I’ve seen it at the library a few times and it is quite a doorstop. The Simon Winchester title was one of my favorite books of the year. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in science, history, or just good listening.
