    Pregnant and secretly married, Cheryl Anway scribbles what becomes her last will and testament on a school binder shortly before a rampaging trio of misfit classmates gun her down in a high school cafeteria. For a handful of people still reeling from that horrific day, life remains derailed.

    Cynthia says: "Superb"
    "Things need a little explaining..."
    Overall

    This book starts out really weak, almost annoying. Stick with it, it does get a little more interesting. It's depressing though, and will leave you asking questions; mostly about instances in the story I felt the author should have expounded upon.

    The four separate readers definitely does this book a favor and really identifies the characters well for you.

    Story
    (200)

    Following his two New York Times best sellers, Brain Droppings and Napalm & Silly Putty, comes George Carlin's third audiobook, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, a riotous journey through the mind of one of America's premiere comic observers.

    "BORING!"
    Overall

    I am a big George Carlin fan and have loved his stand up comedy for years. This new book of his delivered everything you would expect from George, except for a funny punch line. There's endless rambling about the same old stale topics and after the first few hours you'll feel as though you've been stuck in a room with an angry New York senior citizen who's forgotten where they left their sense of humor. Sorry George, but your new book stinks!

    Story

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"
    "This mystery is amazing!"
    Overall

    This book is a great story that will leave you hanging every time you pause it! The only thing wrong with it is that you won't want to stop listening until the mystery is unraveled. From beginning to end Dan Brown keeps you on your toes trying to think of what's coming next!

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "Great Story!"
    Overall

    This was an awesome book! It begins a bit tedious and explanatory but unwinds into a whirlwind of a story that will keep your imagination running. This is a book that will keep you thinking long after you're done with it. I highly recommend it!
