    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"

    This was a wonderful book. I wished it would't have ended. It just makes me sad to see that not so much has changed since the 60's.

  • Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings (2nd edition, revised)

    Disproving Christianity and Other Secular Writings compiles popular and lesser-known arguments against the principles established by the Christian canon. Using a phenomenological approach to build his case based on in-depth study, McAfee analyzes the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament doctrine to build a logical and reasonable case against their validity. From contradictions between lived and portrayed religions to factual errors within the texts themselves, no stone is left unturned in this fully updated and expanded refutation of Christianity.

    J. Revay says: "Excellent intro to the secular point of view."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have given more detail.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the additional essays more informative than the main book. The main book just rehashed the same arguments that I've already read and heard. They are not things that the Christians that I deal with take as serious criticism. These arguments are the things that they already have, albeit unsatisfying to me, answers to.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It was a good story despite the narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    His voice just didn't fit the characters. It could very possibly be because he narrated a very depressing series of books and his voice just makes me think about that series.


    Any additional comments?

    The story wasn't great, but it was good. I would have probably liked it much better if there had been either a female narrator or if I had read it.

    Frank Pollard awakens in an alley, knowing nothing but his name - and that he is in great danger. Having taken refuge in a motel, he wakes again only to find his hands covered in blood. As far as he knows, he's no killer. But whose blood is this, and how did it get there?

    I had a hard time getting into this book. The characters never really grabbed me. Also, the plot was unbelievable.

    For Jennifer Boylan, creaking stairs, fleeting images in the mirror, and the remote whisper of human voices were everyday events in the Pennsylvania house in which she grew up in the 1970s. But these weren't the only specters beneath the roof of the mansion known as the "Coffin House".

    Moriah says: "Very good but not really a "Ghost" book"
    "Very good but not really a "Ghost" book"
    Overall

    This was a very well written book but for the most part it wasn't a ghost story. There were a few creepy parts in there but that wasn't the point of the story. But, if you wanted a glimpse into the life of a transgendered person, with a few ghost stories thrown in, this is the book for you.

    When her husband is offered a post at a small northwestern university, Maye Roberts is only too happy to pack up and leave the relentless Phoenix heat for the lush green quietude of Spaulding, Washington. But when you're a childless 30-something freelance writer who works at home, making new friends can be quite a challenge. Her attempts to do so lead her to enter a kooky beauty pageant - and to uncover a sinister mystery.

    A User says: "Is it over yet?"
    "very good"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. The main character got into so many scrapes that I cringed when something was going right with her because I knew that something bad was coming. The end was a little weird, though.

    I loved this book. I felt like I knew the characters, even the minor ones. There were a few times when I just wanted to say "get on with it!" but they were few and far between.

    When his girlfriend takes a job in Thailand, Mischa Berlinski goes along for the ride, working for one of Thailand's English-language newspapers. One evening a fellow expatriate tips him off to a story. A charismatic American anthropologist has been found dead, a suicide, in the Thai prison where she was serving a 50-year sentence for murder. Motivated first by simple curiosity, then by deeper and more mysterious feelings, Mischa searches relentlessly to discover the details of her crime.

    "Really good once you get into it"
    Overall

    It took a long time to get into this book, but once I did, I was hooked. The characters are very "real" and I couldn't wait to find out what they were going to do next. It was a little hard to realize what "time" you were in, since the book goes back and forth through many time periods.

    Thirty years ago two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall. Their bodies were never found, and those familiar with the case have always been tortured by these questions: How do you kidnap two girls? Who or what could have lured the two sisters away from a busy mall on a Saturday afternoon without leaving behind a single clue or witness? Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters.

    Cayce says: "A page turner"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    I was a little nervous about trying this author because I didn't know anything about her. I was very pleasantly surprised. I had also guessed the plot twist, but it was still a wonderful story. I actually "knew" the characters and I was sad when it was over.

    Story
    (1954)

    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!"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    This book was wonderful. The story was very well told about an interesting subject. I was taken aback a bit because it wasn't just about Callie. There were large sections devoted to telling about her grandparents and parents in order to get to the present story.

    If you don't like a musical background, don't worry, it doesn't last long. If you listen at work or around children, beware that there are a few racy parts and cursing. (I got caught off guard a few times with people in and out of my office)
