Yes, as one reviewer of this book rightly points out, 'The Help' lacks any mention of sunken submarines and jungle exploration. It is extremely weak in the field of mountain climbing. I didn't feel put off by this exclusion. Instead, I discovered a terrific description of social life in the South. Stockett paints portrays of the characters which are vivid, multi-faceted and rarely stereo-types. Little wonder she has seen this book awarded and filmed. The narration does this great piece of literature every justice. Naturally, I not only listened right to the end - I'd be happy to listen to it again, and again.

The title doesn't do Fagan's work justice - this book is equally about the demise of the Neanderthal, and Neanderthal life. Fagan offers an easily accessible overview of that time in human history when two types of humans populated Europe. James Langton adds to the story with his precise, clear narration, which sounds knowledgeable - without sounding pompous.

A nice nibble of a novel

Surreal and at times downright silly - but enjoyable throughout. Which story which manages to include wannabe vampires, John Keats (as a rhyming sidekick) and Mary Shelley (as a grave-robbing femme fatale) couldn't be? The funniest gothic novel you'll read. Or hear - Sean Barrett does an excellent job of giving all of the characters, major and supporting roles, their own distinct voice.
