    What happened to Cass McBride? That's the question everyone is asking - her father, who finds her gone and her room violated; Ben Grey, the detective who catches the case; even Cass herself, who awakens from a drugged sleep with a walkie-talkie taped to her hand in a cold, dark...coffin?

    Kathy says: "Outstanding in every way!"
    "This story is for young adults but not kids."
    Overall

    Excellent writing and narration. A haunting psychological drama. I listened from start to finish, lost an hour of sleep without thinking. It makes you wonder how you, or your child, would survive a similar situation.

    Raised in the historic southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of honor and duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering Viola Turner, the African-American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses to even speak in his own defense.

    If you could sum up Natchez Burning in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent book by an excellent writer whose previous books I have enjoyed without exception.


    What other book might you compare Natchez Burning to and why?

    Stephen King's 11-22-63. Superior fictional treatment of real events in the same era.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to pick one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I like to savor good books. I am sometimes sad when they are completed.


    Any additional comments?

    I have seen an unusual number of negative reviews of this book, mostly based on the narration. This surprised me, as I have read other books using the same narrator, and he was excellent. As soon as I started listening to this book, I realized what the problem was! I increased the reading rate on my Android device to 1.5 times normal, and immediately the problem went away. I am positive that there must have been a recording error, resulting in a dragging pace and strange tone to the reader's voice.

    Story

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "The best yet from this terrific writer."
    Overall

    This is a subtle, sensitive, well researched, and unbiased presentation of the ramifications of autism. On personal, legal and societal levels, autism is a difficult condition to understand and cope with. Jodi Picoult brings us into the world of Emma, Jake, Theo, and their community with her clear and compelling writing style. This is very long book that I just couldn't put down. Well worth the time and credit.
