    Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion on the Appalachian Trail resulted in the best seller A Walk in the Woods. Now, we follow him "Down Under" to Australia with this delectably funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance that combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. More from Bill Bryson.

    This book is very boring.

    In her beloved New York Times best sellers Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and, most recently, Shanghai Girls, Lisa See has brilliantly illuminated the potent bonds of mother love, romantic love, and love of country. Now, in her most powerful novel yet, she returns to these timeless themes, continuing the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearl’s strong-willed 19-year-old daughter, Joy.

    Maida says: "Dreams of Joy and all of Lisa See's books"
    "Save your book credit."
    Overall

    I am disappointed with this book. I am sorry I wasted a book credit. Boring!

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    "Not good"

    I was disappointed in this book. I purchased because of his previous books and the hype generated by advertising.

    Jack St. Bride was a popular teacher and soccer coach at a girls' prep school when he was falsely accused of statutory rape. Released after eight months behind bars, he arrives in Salem Falls hoping to start fresh. He lands a job washing dishes at the local diner and even falls in love with the owner, Addie. But then a spoiled local girl accuses Jack of assault, forcing his past into the open and turning the town against him.

    Carolyn says: "Not My Favorite Picoult"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I usually enjoy Jodi's books but this book was very disappointing and boring. I felt this book was a waste of listening time. Perhaps the author is cranking out too many books.

    In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old: playing make-believe, dreading school, dreaming of faraway places. But even her imaginative mind can't shut out the realities of her impoverished North Carolina home or help her protect her younger sister, Emma.

    Overall

    This was one of the best audible books. Made my heart pound. The narration was wonderful. Makes a person realize the many children who have to live a life of terror.

    New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult explores a complex and troubled American family in The Tenth Circle, the tale of a broken-hearted teenage girl and the father who will do anything to protect her. High school freshman Trixie Stone comes home from a party and says the boy she loves, and who recently dumped her, sexually assaulted her. Her father never imagined anything so devastating could happen, and now he's not sure how to help his daughter.

    Linda says: "Picoult wrote a disappointing story."

    I was very disappointed with this book. If this was the first Jodi Picoult book I listened to it would have been my last.

    In his tantalizing debut novel, Paradise Salvage, at once a taut thriller and a lyrical coming-of-age story, John Fusco marvelously traces the unforgettable trajectory of 12-year-old Nunzio Paradiso's last summer of innocence.

    Pamela says: "Who thought junk could be so endearing?!"

    Overall

    This book was a wonderful story and I did not want it to end, but the ending was complete and satisfying. My only complaint was that the narrator did not have a Scottish brogue, but rather an Irish brogue. My Mother is Scottish and the wrong brogue was distracting to me.
