    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Great Listen!"
    Overall

    I just loved it! Hated to have it end and say goodbye to the characters.

    The war against humanity is raging. As the small town of Rainbow Falls, Montana, comes under siege, scattered survivors band together to weather the onslaught of the creatures set loose upon the world. As they ready for battle against overwhelming odds, they will learn the full scope of Victor Frankenstein’s nihilistic plan to remake the future - and the terrifying reach of his shadowy, powerful supporters. Now the good will make their last, best stand. In a climax that will shatter every expectation, their destinies and the fate of humanity hang in the balance.

    The long, drawn out parts of the over all plans of Victor.


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

    It had been 3 years since I listened to I, II and III. I could pick right up with the characters. I get a kick out of Jocko!

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Amazon Customer says: "A great book"
    "Bones combined with Lizbeth"

    Story

    You've either done it or know someone who has: the one-night stand, the familiar outcome of a night spent at a bar, sometimes the sole payoff for your friend's irritating wedding, or the only relief from a disastrous vacation. Often embarrassing and uncomfortable, occasionally outlandish, but most times just a necessary and irresistible evil, the one-night stand is a social rite as old as sex itself and as common as a bar stool.

    Kathryn says: "Chelsea, You are HYSTERICAL!"
    "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ"
    Overall

    I found the book boring and could not finish it. I feel a big part was due to the reader. She had no animation to her voice.

  • When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man

    Here is the story of Jerry Weintraub: the self-made, Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. No matter where nature has placed him - the club rooms of Brooklyn, the Mafia dives of New York's Lower East Side, the wilds of Alaska, or the hills of Hollywood - he has found a way to put on a show and sell tickets at the door.

    Ron says: "How could you not really like Jerry Weintraub??"
    "Zzzzzzzz - Boring"
    Overall

    I felt Jerry Weintraub is all about Jerry. Very self-absorbed. Everyone who is someone is his friend. Too bad he didn't apply his lesson of the red jacket to his own family. I had a hard time listening to the entire book. He has no idea of truly hard times.
