    I could not wait to hear the interview with Kathryn Stockett. This was my favorite book and I really wanted to hear her perspective and intentions when she started writing "The Help"

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "Listen and You'll Love it"
    Overall

    This book was short but packed with everything you can imagine: mafia hits, love story, revenge, betrayal…The list goes on and on. The writing is fantastic and very funny. The book description does not do this book justice. The main character Pietro/Peter goes on a roller coaster ride throughout his life and you would love to just tell him to stop and walk away from it all. By far the most surprising part of this book is about the last 15 minutes – WHAT AN ENDING! Out of all of the books that I have listened to, this by far has the best narration. You must LISTEN!!!!!!!! Download the book and I know you won’t regret it.

    "I moved to New York City a month ago to become the best journalist the world had ever seen. To find the greatest stories never told. And now here I am, Henry Parker, 24 years old and weary beyond rational thought, a bullet one trigger-pull from ending my life."

    Malle says: "Great audiobook!"
    "Great Narrator"
    Overall

    I loved the plot and storyline. Anything that could go wrong did for Henry Parker and you gotta feel for the guy. He seems to be at the wrong place, at the wrong time, making the wrong decision! Some of the situations were a little far-fetched for me, but, its part of the ride that you must enjoy. This the first time that I listened to this narrator (Noah) and I thought he was great! He had a little trouble with various characters but I thought he was great with the main character. He definitely brought the character to life!

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Overall

    I have been waiting for Divine Justice for months and was not disappointed! This is the 4th book in the Camel Club series and I try enjoy the main character John Carr. What makes this series better than any other has to be the narrator. He is able to separate the character’s without sounding too dramatic and fake. Its slight differences that make it believable. The sound effects during fight and chase scenes also make it more interesting. I read 1 out of the 4 books and regret that I didn’t listen to the audio version. Ron McLarty truly adds his raspy voice to the character and truly makes you believe that is what John Carr would sound like in a movie. MUST LISTEN!

    This is the first chapter of John Grisham's new legal thriller, The Appeal. The full audiobook will be available here on January 29, 2008. In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

    The first chapter was just what I needed to make me want to buy the whole book! John Grisham is a great author and I cant wait to read the rest of the chapters.
