    Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B. Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Man in 3B to be better than the print version?

    Yes. It's more interesting the book is narrated. Changes in voice give a clearer picture of the characters


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

    Yes. I loved the way the writer gave detailed descriptions of all of the characters. It seemed as though everyone had a reason to kill Darryl.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was good. I'd never heard any o f the narrators
    before.


    If you could take any character from The Man in 3B out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Darryl. He seemed to have the ability to connect with different people on so many different levels. Had he channeled his energy differently, he could have been a great businessman.

    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

    What made the experience of listening to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings the most enjoyable?

    Definitely having the author narrate the book.


    What other book might you compare I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings to and why?

    The Color Purple


    Have you listened to any of Maya Angelou’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to her poetry. Never an entire book. It was great! She became every character.


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

    I understood it better with the author reading it. Through her voice I was more aware of how she experienced various situations.

    There are shelves of memoirs about overcoming the death of a parent, childhood abuse, rape, drug addiction, miscarriage, alcoholism, hustling, gangbanging, near-death injuries, drug dealing, prostitution, or homelessness. Cupcake Brown survived all these things before she'd even turned 20.

    Where does Sleeping with Strangers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good. It started off a little slow for me.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would like to have had more information on Gideon's past earlier in the book.


    Which character – as performed by Dion Graham – was your favorite?

    Gideon of course. He's complicated.


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

    No extreme reaction. The writer leaves you wanting to know more about Gideon. I wondered if he would ever really have a "happy ending".


    Any additional comments?

    Just purchased Waking with Enemies.

    What did you love best about The Book Club?

    The story was interesting. Not at all what I expected from the title.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the author developed each character, with the exception of Midge. I didn't really understand what happened to her in the end. In addition, the characters were more mature. I rarely find authors that develop interesting characters over 45 years old.


    What about Deanna Hurst’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was clear and crisp.


    If you could rename The Book Club, what would you call it?

    The Book Club - Revealed


    Any additional comments?

    The book was a nice surprise. Initially I wanted to return the book. After a few chapters I was drawn into the storyline and the characters.
