    On the Appalachian Mountains above her home, a young mother discovers a beautiful and terrible marvel of nature. As the world around her is suddenly transformed by a seeming miracle, can the old certainties people have lived by for centuries remain unchallenged? Flight Behaviour is a captivating, topical and deeply human story touching on class, poverty and climate change. It is Barbara Kingsolver's most accessible novel yet, and explores the truths we live by, and the complexities that lie behind them.

    Story

    Barbara Kingsolver is a master storyteller and has written a fine story of one woman's growth and search to find a way out of her stifled life in a small town. As always with her novels there are many layers and you learn something new. Barbara is also an excellent narrator, I always enjoy her voice and characters. Well worth a listen.

    Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a life where fans would chase him, paparazzi would stalk him, and Hollywood studios would want to own him. While filming in Seaport, Rhode Island, Ryan ducks into a neighborhood bar for a quick escape from legions of screaming fans... and finds much more than he expected. Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in

    Story

    The good thing about this audiobook is at 22 hours long it mildy entertained me through a few days of tedious work. The bad thing is the extremely corny dialogue. It was like the melodramatic conversations in Days of Our Lives. I laughed out loud several times at the constant references to "with all my heart" and "to my very soul". The parts I enjoyed were the insights into the movie star lifestyle though I don't know how accurate they may be. The narrator does a good job with the very clunky conversations.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
