    Evelyn has been married to her husband for 40 years - 40 years since he slipped off her first wedding ring and put his own in its place. Delphine has seen both sides of love - the ecstatic, glorious highs of seduction, and the bitter, spiteful fury that descends when it’s over. James, a paramedic who works the night shift, knows his wife’s family thinks she could have done better; while Kate, partnered with Dan for a decade, has seen every kind of wedding - beach weddings, backyard weddings, castle weddings - and has vowed never, ever, to have one of her own.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Este libro es basado en 5 historias que van desde 1947, 1972, 1989, 2003 y 2011. Basadas en la idea del diamante como anillo de compromiso y que los diamantes son para toda la vida. Encuentras la persona que no acepta que el marido la divorcia y va y destruye todas sus camisas y hasta se exita sexualmente con el sonido de las tijeras cortando el material. La que no quiere ni necesita estar casada para seguir su vida normal y luchar por la independencia de las mujeres. La madre que quiere mas su suegra que su propio hijo y que no acepta que se divorcie y espera que el viva la vida que ella ha vivido. El par de maricas que quieren ser casados y ser aceptados como el resto de las pareja y adoptar hijos en el futuro. La mujer que se enamora de un criminal en la carcel y empieza a escribir cartas y al final se casa con el, no importa que el no pueda estar en su matrimonio, pero tiene un anillo en su dedo. Sullivan trato de poner todo tipo de caracteres de personas en un libro con sus historias, las victimas, la feminista, la madre protectora, la que no importa de quien se enamora, con tal de casarse, todas alrededor de un anillo de compromiso. Y al final no importa que te ponga en la mano, esto no es garantia para que el matrimonio sea feliz por el resto de la vida y no importa que el diamante si dure por años.

    Do not looks one credit, at least you are the kind of person that does not allow a person to leave you with love. Or a mother that understand that the son or daughter you have are not yours and that they have the own lives.Or the one that who cares who is your lover he or her can be a criminal, but love is beautiful and you will proud of yourself plus you will have a ring in your hand, a diamant.

    This is my first book in the Malayan series. I can not say I got bore with the book, but sometimes did not feel that they were in a war. That It was a love story, between who?A women in every chapter has a kid and when her husband order her to live the house, she did not fight, she just lived, the older kids was 11 and the young kid was 3. Difficult for me to accept, and easy for her to do and started a new life. Well.........

    "As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me...." Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.

    This books has the plot of one of my favor book The Professor and the Housekeeper, with the different that I will read that book ten more times. This book I figure out the plot since the beginning, I got tired of the same phrases over and over. Sometimes I wonder about the reviews the # of starts readers gave to a book, sometimes I wonder what do they look in books, what do they find that I do not.
    I will never recommend this book, I will never read this book again.

    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching examination of the bloody price of power, The Son is a gripping and utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American west with rare emotional acuity, even as it presents an intimate portrait of one family across two centuries. Eli McCullough is just twelve-years-old when a marauding band of Comanche storm his Texas homestead and brutally murder his mother and sister, taking him as a captive.

    Story

    This book is the story of Indians, Americans and Mexicans, south of Texas, 3 members of the McCulloughs family, Eli the a guy that after living with the Comanches Indians for about 4 years was not sure if he was and Indian or American, builded his money and his ranch stealing and cold killing, Peter a person with values that after he leaves to Mexico following the love of his life disappeared from the book and Jane the granddaughter that got the ranch and the money from Eli. Jane did not know anything about business, has two husbands, did not like the role of a mother neither, had 3 kids, one weak, a gay and slut. The normal people of our society now.
    Do I recommended this book. No, the books has potential but he writer and editor spend time in things that where not important and leave the things that can make a good history book out. The characters Eli cold blood killer, Jane that did not know what she was doing in this world, Peter the only one I like but his role was short

    13 Hours presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

    This is very sad. In my opinion Obama, Rice, and Clinton all are guilty of what happen to these men in Benghazi. A President that said he is scandal free, this is something he will bring until the end of his life, and we will never forgive him the lives of these soldiers.

    As a 19-year-old, Karl Ove moves to Bergen and invests all of himself in his writing. But his efforts get the opposite effect - he wants it so much that he gets writer's block. At the same time, he sees his friends, one-by-one, publish their debuts. He suspects that he will never get anything published.

    Story

    A good writer like Karl Ove has to know when enough is enough. This book that is related with his 20th years is bad, he drinks too much, he talks about the time working a mentally hospital, boring time of his life, relations with girlfriends that does not mean anything. Everything of this book is boring, to the point I was not able to finish.

He has no interest in the job itself - or in any other job for that matter. His intention is to save up enough money to travel while finding the space and time to start his writing career.

    Vanessa Mazur knows she's doing the right thing. She shouldn't feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans, and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary. But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she's beyond shocked.

I hate to lose my time and my money to listen to some one that talks to fast, that does know how to make different voices well, between man and women, is another problem.
