    Author Cassandra Fallows has achieved remarkable success by baring her life on the page. Her two widely popular memoirs continue to sell briskly, acclaimed for their brutal, unexpurgated candor about friends, family, lovers - and herself. But now, after a singularly unsuccessful stab at fiction, Cassandra believes she may have found the story that will enable her triumphant return to nonfiction.

    RKNS says: "Good book; great reader!"
    "not worth the time or book credit"
    Overall

    this book failed to make me care about the plot and/or characters.

    not worth listening to.

    want a great read/listen?
    try middlesex, water for elephants, riding lessons, flying changes, a thousand splendid suns.

    Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he's still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.

    Ki says: "Not an average book"
    "i couldn't even finish it..."
    Overall

    This book, the writing, the characters...I couldn't even bring myself to finish listening. I stopped a couple hours in. The characters got confusing because the author did not make me care enough to concentrate on any of them.

    Not worth your credits!
