Her customers hail from every walk of life, and word even arrives that the royals themselves are coming to see their likenesses....

    Story
    What did you love best about Madame Tussaud?

    Learning about the "real" people that played huge parts in the French Revolution.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Madame Tussaud. A sculptor, as am I. What an adventure to be so closely entwined in the terrible events of the time.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    It was fluid and well done.


    If you could take any character from Madame Tussaud out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would be her. Obviously she was an amazing artist, who worked and lived hard. She is strong, and could fit easily into this modern time.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like historical novels, this one is packed with so much first hand information.
    Wow!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.

Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the height of his creative powers attempt to take his life... and then walk a mile to a doctor's house for help? Who was the crooked little "color man" Vincent had claimed was stalking him across France? And why had the painter recently become deathly afraid of a certain shade of blue? These are just a few of the questions confronting Vincent's friends who vow to discover the truth of van Gogh's untimely death.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! The mystery and the revelations bond two stories of two seriously damaged women together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely the girl techno-PI. She makes you want to applaud her way of dealing with her life. She wants justice and is the heroine.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending is no fairytale, but I hope that there is going to be a sequel. It does leave you with a desire to see her happy and the possibility that her story will continue.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    If you could sum up Killing Lincoln in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, suspenseful, emotional.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Lincoln?

    Probably the attempt to save his life by the young doctor.


    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm an artist, I can not work with my hands and physically read a book at the same time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's like the Titanic. You already know the ending, but, now you know "the rest of the story".... Or do you?!


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to O'Reilly frequently on TV. He's a great speaker, and story teller. And a great author!

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    You should know that there is a prayer at the end. If this is not your deal ( Christian theology or belief), turn it off when he starts in with "Let us pray". Otherwise, it is a fantastic way to help yourself find peace of mind, especially if your parents were socially dysfunctional and passed it on to you. It will change your perspective of the people around you (even the guy in the car behind you gesturing rudely).

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Any additional comments?

    King is usually very bloody. But,I loved the idea that we could change history. But, there's a twist... "If we could, should we?".

    It's a little like a Crighton story, but, more historically correct.

    This and Gerald's Game are my favorite King novels!
