    Dave was in first grade when his unstable alcoholic mother began attacking him. Until he was in fifth grade, she starved, beat, and psychologically ravaged her son. Eventually denying even his identity, Dave's mother called him an "it" instead of using his name. Relentlessly, she drove him to the brink of death before authorities finally stepped in. With faith and hope, Dave grew determined to survive. He also knew that he needed to share his story.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Child Called 'It' to be better than the print version?

    No


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Child Called 'It'?

    Description the author puts into almost every part of the book


    Did Brian Keeler do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes he did...but I would have liked to have heard it in a younger voice since the book is about a young boy.

    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Vikas Swarup's spectacular debut novel, the inspiration for the award-winning film, opens in a jail cell in Mumbai, where Ram Mohammad Thomas is being held after correctly answering all 12 questions on India's biggest quiz show, Who Will Win a Billion? It is hard to believe that a poor orphan who has never gone to school could win such a contest. But through a series of exhilarating tales, Ram explains to his lawyer how episodes in his life gave him the answer to each question.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those who expect movies to be better than the book. I always enjoy the books much more than the movies but in this situation it was exactly opposite.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Roots


    What does Christopher Simpson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Different accents of characters

    If you can count on one thing from "Madea" Mabel Simmons, star of Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, it's that she's got something to say. She's the beloved, hilarious, sharp-witted, pistol-packing grandmother who's watching out and speaking her mind. Now Madea is telling her own story, dishing her memoirs and hard-won, hilarious wisdom in her own inimitable voice (with a little help from her friend Tyler Perry).

    What other book might you compare Don't Make a Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings to and why?

    Incomparable!


    What about Tyler Perry’s performance did you like?

    It was amazing! Tyler Perry continues to amaze me as a play wright, writer, actor, and so much more.
