    What disappointed you about The Poacher's Son?

    The author never explains the fathers relationship with the son, the Vietnam experience, and the father's relationship with the girl. Since it was eluded to that the father was a very good person as a young man, how did he change so drastically? The author got into deep water and tried salvage the story with a politically correct ending, which made no sense. Shame on you........


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

    Make the father more understandable.

    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Would you try another book from Jodi Picoult and/or the narrators?

    no not in this lifetime


    What was most disappointing about Jodi Picoult’s story?

    The story had some potential, but the author wanted a politically correct ending.. The strong emotions of both sides of the issues were not fully developed.. In addition, the brother who hated the father got his revenge and the little sister was bullied throughout the story and disregarded her position.. In essence it made little sense due to the fact that the exploration of the character's positions were unrealistic.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    the narrators were okay


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lone Wolf?

    I would not cut, I would have rewrote for continuity of the story line.


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste of good story line

    With a husband who works long hours trying to make partner and two rambunctious kids that are running her ragged, Margie Peterson is like any other worn-out suburban mom. When she decides to take a job as a PI for a seedy local detective agency, everything changes. It doesn’t take long for Margie to get in over her head: Her first day on the job she totals her minivan, mistakenly enters a drag contest, and winds up in the bathroom with a dead transvestite. But when Margie finds her home number in the victim’s phone, things really start to get interesting.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    THE AUTHOR SHOULD HAVE DONE SOME TYPE OF RESEARH ON THE LAW OR KEEPED THE STORY LINE SIMPLER.


    What was most disappointing about Karen MacInerney’s story?

    THE LACK OF THE AUTHOR'S KNOWLEDGE ABOUT ; THE LAW, COMMUNITY PROPERTY, AND PERSONAL RELATIONS.


    Did Cris Dukehart do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    NOT BAD OR PASSABLE


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    THE LIGHT HEARTEDNESS OF THE STORY WAS ITS' STRONG POINT.


    Any additional comments?

    OVERALL IT BECAME TOO COMPLEX FOR NOVICE A DETECTIVE, WHICH GAVE IT A SCATTER GUN EFFECT. THE AUTHOR SHOUD FLOW CHART EVENT TO GIVE IT MORE REALISM.
