    In this brilliant debut novel, Noah's family (or Noe, as he's called here), his wife, sons, and daughters-in-law, tell what it's like to live with a man touched by God, while struggling against events that cannot be controlled or explained. When Noe orders his sons to build an ark, he can't tell them where the wood will come from. When he sends his daughters-in-law out to gather animals, he can offer no directions, money, or protection.

    Sharon says: "A frolicking tale"
    "What a treat!"
    Overall

    I didn't want this one to end; even knowing the end of the book didn't ruin the enjoyment of this great listen. The multi-character cast of readers gets it just right in conveying what it might have been like to be in Noah's family as they prepared for and endured the deluge. I have recommended the book to others as a "listen only" because the different voices were so compelling--and funny!

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    Matthew says: "Darn funny if you're open to the idea."
    "Very entertaining and educational"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Stiff to be better than the print version?

    haven't read the print version


    What other book might you compare Stiff to and why?

    similar to other Roach works, so if you like her straightforward take on learning about unusual things, this is a good book for you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many good descriptions of her encounters with the gross...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I needed a break from the subject matter--dead bodies--occasionally.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, good reader!
