    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "It's in the voice..."
    Overall

    This was enjoyable. I wish more writers would read their own work. I found inspiration in what he (character in the book) did. The discussion session between writer and editor was really interesting. So much enjoyment in good narration. Thanks.

    Critically acclaimed and best-selling crime writer James Lee Burke returns to Louisiana where his ever-popular hero, Dave Robicheaux, sleuths his way through a hotbed of sin and uncertainty.

    Suzn F says: "Another delicious book from JLB"
    "Thankfully Burke changed the narrator"
    Overall

    I have two other Burke books that I can't stand to listen to because the reader actually made me gag. He sounded as if he were ready to join his ancestors in the sky with about as much breath left as a person with emphyzema. I'm going to try this after listening to the new narrator.

    For more than a half century, Father Damien Modeste has served his beloved people, the Ojibwe, on the remote reservation of Little No Horse. Now, nearing the end of his life, Father Damien dreads the discovery of his physical identity, for he is a woman who has lived as a man. To complicate his fears, his quiet life changes when a troubled colleague comes to the reservation to investigate the life of the perplexing, difficult, possibly false saint Sister Leopolda.

    Carol T. Carr says: "Remarkable and Challenging"
    "Maybe you have to be Catholic!"
    Overall

    It's a pretty good read. Great Indian perspective and a fun example of Catholicism at it's best! Take the time to read this. I think you'll enjoy it.

    Nick Conover, the son of a factory worker, is the CEO of a major corporation in a company town. Nick, once the most admired man in Fenwick, Michigan, is now, having presided over massive layoffs, the most despised. A single parent since the recent death of his wife, he's struggling to insulate his 10-year-old daughter and angry 16-year-old son from the town's hostility.

    Norman says: "Outstanding book."
    "Go for it!"
    Overall

    I haven't finished yet but almost. I hope I'm not just a Scott Brick follower but I don't think so. This is really good. Lots of good twists. Get it.

    Barbara Holloway has a reputation for taking on the toughest cases - and winning them. But this time she's up against an unbeatable opponent - her father, the lawyer who taught her all she knows.

    Reed says: "Better than the first"
    "Kate's Kool."
    Overall

    Good writing and I hope Audible picks up more of her books unabridged. Nice narration too.
