    Overall

    I was glad when this book ended, the story just didn't seem to go anywhere or have a point. It jumped around from different characters and didn't hold my interest much. The ending was really disjointed and unsatisfying. I enjoyed the narrator though, that and the fact that I paid for it were probably the only reasons I listened to the entire thing.

    Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

    Mark says: "Truly Inspiring and Meaningful"
    "Lovely little book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book more than I was expecting too. It was really very touching. I liked the little touches of music and sound effects, I find them annoying in some books but in this one they are very fitting and actually add to the listening experience. I enjoyed the narrator's voice too. I highly recommend listening to this one.

  • The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life

    Great-looking abs are more than just a way to support the mirror industry. In fact, strong abs and flat stomachs are the ultimate indicator of overall health for both men and women. Great abs will help you live longer, sleep better, prevent back pain, and significantly improve your sex life! (And, hey, they don't look half-bad in the mirror, either.) Unfortunately, you could spend years on starvation diets and extreme exercise programs that never unearth those elusive stomach muscles.

    Kevin M. Davis says: "Now it all makes sense"
    "I Recommend this!"
    Overall

    Yes, this book is more geared towards men but as a woman I still found it very practical and informative. It even made me laugh, I enjoyed listening to it. It also made me realize that I needed to focus more on strength training at the gym (I was mostly doing cardio). I can already see a difference! It's not so much a diet as just a common sense healthy way of life.

    Where can a woman turn when her own life threatens to overwhelm her ability to keep her children safe? New York Times best-selling author Jacquelyn Mitchard takes the readers of her newest novel on a wry and moving journey of loss and healing.

    Patti says: "A So-So Story"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It took a while to get used to the narrator's voice when she does the husband and son's voices. My mom also listened to it and really liked it.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "FABULOUS book!!!!"
    Overall

    This might just be my favorite audible book I've listened to yet. The story (I should say stories...from Greece to Detroit to San Francisco and the three different generations) was so interesting, the writing was great and the narrator was amazing. I couldn't stop listening to it, yet didn't want it to end. I have no idea what to listen to next, this book is a hard act to follow! I highly recommend it.
