    When his daughter, Amy—a gifted doctor, mother, and wife—collapsed and died from an asymptomatic heart condition, Roger Rosenblatt and his wife, Ginny, left their home on the South Shore of Long Island to move in with their son-in-law, Harris, and their three young grandchildren.

    Overall

    Death is a part of life. We all die. Sorry it had to happen to someone close to you. I simply could not finish the audio. It was too depressing and was not going to be resolved by the end (in my estimation).

    Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver. Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, it is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike.

    Even if you have seen the movie, the book is better. Well worth the time to listen.

  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand: A Novel

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    jc says: "Charming book with an excellent narrator"
    "Pleasant story"
    Overall

    A nice slow paced story that captured my attention. Was the conflict between the generations or between the cultures? In the end it didn't matter because it was a good story to listen to and enjoy.

    The foul language was unnecessary. I could not finish the book. The story was good but...

    This is a thrilling historical account of the worst cholera outbreak in Victorian London and a brilliant exploration of how Dr. John Snow's solution revolutionized the way we think about disease, cities, science, and the modern world.

    D. Littman says: "a entertaining polymath book"
    "I believe!"
    Overall

    At the end I felt like shouting, "I believe." like I was at a revival camp meeting. The story of Snow was interesting but just the platform for the author's preaching. I finished it but it was touch and go.

    When a gray-haired man steps forward from the crowd claiming to be his father, Ned's life is thrown into far deeper turmoil. He'd been told since he was a baby that his parents had died in a car crash. Barely an hour later, his newly found father is stabbed by an unknown assailant in the Ascot parking lot. Blood oozing from his abdomen, his father warns Ned to "be very careful." But of whom? Of what?<

    Ray says: "Even Money is a good bet"
    "Good listen"
    Overall

    Lots of twists and turns. Kept my interest through the whole audio.
