    This radiant debut novel from J. Courtney Sullivan examines the deep bonds of friendship and the complex landscape facing today’s young women. Celia, Bree, Sally, and April arrive at Smith College as four very different people. But the years bring them closer together, and once they graduate and face the real world, they realize they need each other more than ever.

    I did lilke this book, I really did. Not a life changer, but a good chick book. However...there I was..listening away and hadn't paid attention to how much time was left and "The End". What?? It's over?? Not a good ending...way too many opened things that could have been cleared up. Having said that...give it a listen, it's not a bad story at all. Good performance, too.

    Bruno Littlemore is quite unlike any chimpanzee in the world. Precocious, self-conscious and preternaturally gifted, young Bruno, born and raised in a habitat at the local zoo, falls under the care of a university primatologist named Lydia Littlemore. Learning of Bruno's ability to speak, Lydia takes Bruno into her home to oversee his education and nurture his passion for painting. But for all of his gifts, the chimpanzee has a rough time caging his more primal urges.

    A stunning and deep story. I loved Bruno!! The voice used to perform Bruno was wonderful, I have told friends to listen it, don't read it because you would never use that wonderful accent. It was quite a journey, we took, Bruno and I. I have some new "life quotes" I have a new feeling about chimps. After listening to this and listening to the 20 minute interview with the author..please do not miss that...I watched some Jane Goodall documentaries and have some whole new thoughts about apes.

    If I had one thing negative to say...it would only be this...how many times can the author use the term "my long purple fingers". Really...it almost got annoying, but if that's the worst..then please, please listen to this book!! Wonderful!!!

    Walton Wood College's 10 year reunion will be night to remember for these three women. In "Twice the Pleasure", Caitlyn finally gets the passionate encounter she's always dreamed of with the boy who got away...and his best friend. For Willa, the party means a red-hot reunion with her ex-husband--now darker, sexier and eager to be in command--in "Second Time Around".

    I'm new to listening to this genre and will definately listen to more of this writer. And listening to it in the English accent is fun! Whew..good stuff!!

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Overall

    I, too, did not like the end of this book, I thought maybe I hadn't downloaded the whole thing!! but having said that..it was a great read, and I enjoyed the reader. Not being very technical, and not playing computer games didn't matter, I didn't feel left out of that, still a good book. Abrupt end, but wouldn't keep me from recommending it.
