I received a free download of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ for being a member of Audible.com. It is part of their new collection called the A-List collection which is some classics that are narrated by actors. Each actor had a hand in choosing the book they would narrate. I had read the book several years ago and of course the movie is one of my favorite movies. Although as with most Hollywood adaptations the book and the movie had a lot of differences. Some things in the book were left out of course and some things were changed like the slippers. I thought that Anne Hathaway did an excellent job with the narrations. She had a different voice for each character and was consistent with her delivery of each voice. The only voice I had an issue with was the voice of the king of the mice. It was just grating and I actually cringed when she did that voice but luckily it was a very small part of the story. This would make a great book for a long road trip with children as they would be entertained immensely by it. I highly recommend this book.
This is the 9th installment of the Women's Murder Club. In this one Lindsey , Cindy. Yuki, and Claire are dealing with two Different criminals. Hello Kitty (who we learn the identity of very early in the book) A female cat burglar who is targetting wealthy people, and the Lipstick Killer who is going around killing mothers and their babies. At first the Hello Kitty crimes take priority because one of the victims was killed and she just happened to be a famous actress married to a famous actor. But soon the Lisptick Killer murder take over as they become more frequent. We really don't hear much from any of the girls except for Lindsey this book as the story line seems to focus more on her (even more so than usual)
As usual there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you turning the pages or as in my case listening as I listened to this on audio. This is still my favorite series of Patterson and I thought this installment was really good.
