  • Dolores Claiborne

    Story
    (304)

    Dolores Claiborne's elderly employer dies suddenly, apparently from falling down a flight of stairs. This tragedy sparks memories of the day Dolores' husband died...the day of the total eclipse. Suspected by police and townspeople alike, she delivers a story of a disintegrating marriage, and the breaking point reached by a docile woman.

    Sandra M Irwin says: "A Great Listen!"
    "Not your tipical Stephen King"
    Overall

    This listen kept my attention from beginning to end. Delightful Narrator. Humorous at times. I couldn't put it down.

    Story

    Jeannette Walls's memoir The Glass Castle was "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly). Now, in Half Broke Horses, she brings us the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant.

    Kathryn says: "A BETTER BOOK THAN "THE GLASS CASTLE""
    "Hardships of the early 1900s in the West."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Half Broke Horses the most enjoyable?

    The writer tells a wonderful story of her grandmother's life and a lot of interesting history of Arizona.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way the author told a true story without it being an autobiography. Very, very clever.


    Have you listened to any of Jeannette Walls’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The Glass Castle is a must read (listen) after Half Broke Horses. I had listen to it before, but when back and listened again, with a different presective. I LOVE JEANNETTE WALL'S WORK.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    WORK HARD OR DIE


    Any additional comments?

    Jeannette Walls is right up there with some of the greats like Stephen King and James Patterson.

    Story

    When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place where she finds herself. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief. This story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching narrative about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

    Kim says: "Disappointing"
    "Great book if you believe in the after life or not"
    Overall

    If you have had a recent death of a close loved one, hold off on this book. I tried shortly after I lost my brother and it just freaked me out. Several months later I went back to it and loved it. What a great way to tell a tale of rape and murder; from the victim herself.

    Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform.

    Stephen says: "No connection to new heroine"
    "Baldacci's Best"
    Overall

    Many different angles so pay close attention. Exciting and thought provoking. Keeps you guessing right to the end. Had a hard time putting this one down. Loved it.
