    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.

  • One Shot: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 9

    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    Reacher does it again. Even though the conclusion was a bit wimpy and some of the antics of dodging bullets seems unreal.

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Would you listen to Gone Tomorrow again? Why?

    Yes it was worth it


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was very interesting


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Very good


    Any additional comments?

    I had to listen to it the second time once I was finished so I could pick up all the detail I had missed. Very good listen and was exactly what I expected in Jack Reacher.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Road to Grace to be better than the print version?

    Oh ya but thats why im listening now instead of reading.


    What about Richard Paul Evans’s performance did you like?

    There was enough interesting events along the way.


    Any additional comments?

    He actually stayed away from having an illicit affair along the way, that showed grace. Yet his views and experiences along the way seemed fresh and inspiring.

    Whatever happened to Calico Joe? It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a 21-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz....

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

    Yes it was a refreshing story, even though it was a sad and very provoking story line. Life is that way though its not all perfect and what do we make of it despite that.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Calico Joe?

    The reconciliation was so jaw clenching even though he didnt deserve it. His dad's way was so evil, and was so unrepentant, naturally I had to hate him. Grisham brought out that hate so well. Even though I didnt want to hate; then at the last Grisham even gave me just a glimse as his dad's thinking that created him to do such a horrible deed. I almost wanted to feel sympathetic to him.


    What does Erik Singer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The pitch, oh the pitch! It was so wrong.

    Over the course of his shady legal career, Victor Carl has made a host of bad decisions, but letting his ex-fiancee Julia, fall back into his life and into his bed might be the worst. Julia's husband has just been murdered, her fingerprints are all over the crime scene, and $1.7 million in cash has inexplicably vanished. If Victor didn't know better, he might think Julia was setting him up.

    Would you try another book from William Lashner and/or William Dufris?

    I loved these books but this one is horrible. The narrator is the most discusting speaker. I cant even get past the first chapter. I have tried and tried and finally gave up.


    Would you ever listen to anything by William Lashner again?

    Only if the narrator changes


    Would you be willing to try another one of William Dufris’s performances?

    yuk

    Nathan Hurst hated Christmas. For the rest of the world, it was a day of joy and celebration; for Nathan it was simply a reminder of the event that destroyed his childhood. But then a snowstorm, a canceled flight, and an unexpected meeting with a young mother and her very special son show him that Christmas is indeed the season of miracles.

    What disappointed you about The Gift?

    Jesus Christ is reduced to another gifted man, just like Mohammad, Gandhi and other people of the ages. Even comparing Conner's gift to Jesus is a stretch since Conner's gift does not bring peace, and definitely does not bring people together. This story is the modern day religion that tries to parallel the real Jesus and attempts to bring another alternative belief to the Gospel of Peace. In the end it just brings more sorrow, to a world full of


    What could Richard Paul Evans have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't ever try to compete with the real Jesus and his message for mankind - the Gospel of Peace.


    Did Richard Paul Evans do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Richard is an excellent writer, as I have listened to other stories of his. He makes each character come to reality.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This is a very sad book, very disappointing.
