    “Mom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box she’d collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK.” So begins Diane Keaton’s unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always thinking Dorothy Hall.

    Story

    The story seemed a bit scattered to me, as Diane jumped back and forth between narrative from herself and her mother's journals. It was a very personal and emotional story. Although it was interesting and gave much insight to Diane's psyche it was not nearly as upbeat or funny as I expected. If you are a Diane Keaton fan, I'd say it's surely worth the time, but it was not my favorite listen.

    San Francisco judge Ramsey Hunt, longtime friend to FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, begins the murder trial of Clive and Cindy Cahill only to have federal prosecutor Mickey O’Rourke, known for his relentless, aggressive style, suddenly turn tentative and distracted. Hunt suspects that something is very wrong — and then O’Rourke goes missing, and Judge Hunt gets shot in the back.

    Story

    The story line wasn't bad, but a bit predictable. It certainly didn't have me riveted to my earbuds. The thing I really didn't like was the canned "Eve said", "Harry said", "Sherlock said", etc. of the narration. I suppose the both male and female narration added to the audiobook and the text had to be read verbatim, but it sounded as if the "So and so said" phrases were recorded separately as inserted as needed. I found this very repetitive and distracting.
