This audiobook of Niffenegger's gothic period novel is set in a very creepy London flat next to a cemetery. Features a set of American twins, ghosts and a cast of peculiar neighbors.

This audio version of the book by Roland Huntford is a dual biography of Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen specifically focusing on their race to the South Pole. The story is well told and despite the dual biography format it is gripping and easy to follow. Huntford takes you from Scott and Amundsenís childhoods through their inspirations and training for their expeditions and on the expeditions themselves. Anyone looking for an exciting adventure story or interested in travel and exploration should give this audio book (or the book version) a try!
