    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story is good but the reading is stilted and difficult to listen to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Reading is not his best skill


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

    No

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    B.J. says: "A stunning achievement - for author and narrator"

    Where does The Goldfinch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    toward the bottom


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    way too much philosophy i ended up skipping forward and he was still droning on and on


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

    This was excellent narration he truly brought the characters to life


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved Hobie


    Any additional comments?

    This book would have been more enjoyable had there been more focus on story and less on the tedious details of Potter's miserable life

    Debt of Honor ends as Jack Ryan is confirmed vice president minutes before a mammoth act of terrorism kills the President, most of his cabinet, all but a few members of Congress, the entire Supreme Court and all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.

    Thomas says: "Don't some of us wish Jack ryan was real?"
    "What happpened to Tom Clancy?"

    What would have made Executive Orders better?

    Less unnecessary information, such as decisions made by Grover Cleveland and whether or not the first lady's hair cut was flattering and I am certainly not interested in the political opinions of Tom Clancy, which he poured liberally into the storyline


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Clancy again?

    No! and until this book, I read almost everything he wrote.


    What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job


    What character would you cut from Executive Orders?

    Not necessarily a character but all the redundant information from past books and trivia which added nothing to this book. All this fluff made it difficult to follow the intricate plot,


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this book

    At 61, George Hall is settling down to a comfortable retirement. Then his tempestuous daughter, Katie, announces that she is getting remarried, to the deeply inappropriate Ray. Her family is not pleased and Katie can't decide if she loves Ray or loves the wonderful way he has with her son, Jacob. Her mother, Jean, is a bit put out by all the planning and arguing the wedding has occasioned, which get in the way of her quite fulfilling late-life affair with one of her husband's ex-colleagues.

    What would have made A Spot of Bother better?

    I thought this book might be humorous, I found it totally depressing. It's written well and narrated well but everyone's life is complicated and sad. I couldn't stick it out.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Winter Sea


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    He is a very good narrator and manages the different voices seamlessly


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    sadness and disappointment, I read it following Dave Barry's Insane City and the contrast was just to much for me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like reveling in others misery, this is the book for you
