    Story
    (72)

    As soon as she graduated from high school, Pamela Des Barres headed for the Sunset Strip, where she knocked on rock stars' backstage doors and immersed herself in the drugs, danger, and ecstasy of the freewheeling 1960s. Over the next 10 years she had affairs with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Keith Moon, Waylon Jennings, Chris Hillman, Noel Redding, and Jim Morrison, among others. She traveled with Led Zeppelin; lived in sin with Don Johnson; turned down a date with Elvis Presley; and was close friends with Robert Plant, Gram Parsons, Ray Davies, and Frank Zappa.

    Would you listen to I'm with the Band again? Why?

    Yes, I might. Pamela does such a great job of narrating it, her warmth and personality shine through. By listening to her I could see why all the band members loved her, something that might not have come across if it were narrated by someone else.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Miss P!


    What about Pamela Des Barres’s performance did you like?

    She put so much energy into her narration and I really liked the extra bits she threw in as she was going. I also liked the catch up bits at the end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I liked to listen to a chapter then sit with what I'd heard.


    Any additional comments?

    Not long enough. I hope to listen to more of her exploits.

    Story

    Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers - normal, at least, for identical 'mirror' twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cozy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn't know existed has died and left them her flat in an apartment block overlooking Highgate Cemetery in London.

    What disappointed you about Her Fearful Symmetry?

    I was left wondering what happened and did not believe the ending. Maybe it was because this was the abridged version.


    What was most disappointing about Audrey Niffenegger’s story?

    The ending.


    Have you listened to any of Sian Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but Sian was spectacular! I would happily buy a book just to hear her again.


    What character would you cut from Her Fearful Symmetry?

    I'm not sure, it was not the characters that were disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the time travelers' wife. It is one of my all time favourite books and I have listened to it about 30 times. I was so looking forward to another of Audrey's books and this one, although quirky (but that is Audrey's style), was going well until that ending.
    I will now wait till Audrey's next book to see if I remain a fan of hers. Thanks for the opportunity to rate books.

    In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

    What made the experience of listening to Into the Wild the most enjoyable?

    This is a great story made even better because it is a true story. Who among us hasn't fantasized at some time about living off the land in the wilderness?


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book because a woman at work came in bleary eyed last Monday morning. She said she'd been loaned this book on Friday and had been up all night reading it because she couldn't put it down.
