    (240)

    At the request (well, it wasn't really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr. are immediately dashed by grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. When Augusten is forced to examine himself, he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken Manhattan life - and live it sober. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a Higher Power

    This book was just great. If you love an alcoholic in recovery, you should listen to this book. If you are an alcoholic or addict in recovery, you have already lived it but you should listen to it anyway.

    For as long as she can remember, 17-year-old Peyton Bound has struggled to remain strong despite being lost in the whirlwind of her emotionally disturbed mother's life...then she finds Matthew Adler at a frat party. He's the first boy who kisses her with open eyes; Peyton finally sees herself in their sparkling reflection. She's sure that her fairytale moment has finally arrived, the day when everything will magically fall into place, and the burdens of her disturbing childhood will begin to lift.

    This is not my typical kind of book but was recommended to me by a friend. At first I was not that interested but the narration kept me listening long enough to get involved in the character's stories. As someone who spends a great deal of time listening to books, I find that the narrator can often make or break a listening experience and that was certainly the case here. It's great when you can forget that there is someone reading the book and just hear the story.

    Once I got involved with the book though, I had to know how it would end.
