  • Angela's Ashes

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"

    Overall

    Wonderfully revealing. The audio is great. McCourt has many songs and poems in his work that he sings as he narrates. Listening to the audio mimics sitting down for tea with McCourt and listening to him tell his story. Amazing.

    Story

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Overall

    At the start, I was bored and unimpressed with the book. As it continued, I found myself immersed in a vivid world where money brings the freedom to live forever. The questions raised by this possibility are haunting, and our protagonist uncovers some interesting things.

  • Her Fearful Symmetry: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Audrey Niffenegger

    Story

    When Elspeth Noblin dies of cancer, she leaves her London apartment to her twin nieces, Julia and Valentina. These two American girls never met their English aunt; they only knew that their mother, too, was a twin, and Elspeth her sister. Julia and Valentina are semi-normal American teenagers - with seemingly little interest in college, finding jobs, or anything outside their cozy home in the suburbs of Chicago, and with an abnormally intense attachment to one another.

    Overall

    Although it was an intriguing ghost story I found it difficult to enjoy the characters - except, of course, Martin. The characters seemed, to me, to be from another universe where childhood selfishness never ends. Maybe Audrey Niffenegger is asking us to look at the obsessions and compulsions inside of ourselves - we who think we're normal.
