    Story
    (880)

    Jennifer Egan brings her unique gifts as a novelist and short story writer to a compulsively listenable narrative that centers on Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the passionate, troubled young woman he employs.

    Laurene says: "Excellent, subtle, moving"
    "Interesting stories that kept me engaged"

    Story
    Who was the most memorable character of A Visit from the Goon Squad and why?

    LuLu both as a child and an adult. Especially as an adult working in marketing, she had a way to explain away any ethical dilema.


    Any additional comments?

    The description of the powerpoint graphs was terrible! I sure wish that part of the audio book had been left out.

    The Bigtree alligator-wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, their island home and gator-wrestling theme park, formerly number-one in the region, is swiftly being encroached upon by a fearsome and sophisticated competitor called the World of Darkness. Ava’s mother, the park’s indomitable headliner, has just died; her sister, Ossie, has fallen in love with a spooky character known as the Dredgeman, who may or may not be an actual ghost.

    Suzn F says: "Sometimes Brilliant, Sometimes Disappointing"
    "Much more than gator wrestling"

    Story
    What did you love best about Swamplandia!?

    The prose was crisp, the characters believable. I enjoyed the exotic location in the Florida swamps and the unique perspective offered by the characters with little exposure to the modern/outside world.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The perspectives of the teenage boy and how he adapted to the difficult situation.
